This must be the most glamorous and yet natural engagement I've had the privilege to photograph and put together. Setoo and Viktor absolutely nailed it and the juxtaposition of the two locations showcases their versatility and fun for life - from serious to laughter, from gowns to nature trails...they had fun from start to finish. Lucky for me, I get to photograph their wedding in a few short days.
We started off in what is the coolest bar in all of San Diego - Polite Provisions. It's set in a mock pharmacy (with a retro make-over) whose whose is to make you a classic, seasonal, or bespoke cocktail of your choosing. If you haven't been, you must go - it's a wonderful treat - and I personally recommend an Aviation (if you're into gin). Viktor would probably recommend an Old Fashioned, which is a classic whiskey cocktail if that is more your jam. In fact, just go for a craft cocktail and try something new.
Aside from the cocktails, Setoo and Viktor arrived in style and blew my socks off - Setoo in a stunning white gown and Viktor in slicked-back suspender ensemble. I couldn't have styled them better in my dreams! We followed things up with something a bit softer at Morley Field, one of my favorite nooks by Balboa Park, for some gorgeous light and greenery. All in all - they laughed, they smiled, kissed on command, gave me their best serious faces, and most of all they had a great time. I can't wait for their wedding around the corner!
