Gabrielle + Ryan: Karl Strauss Brewery, Sorrento Valley

We had a wonderful time being part of Gabrielle and Ryan’s big day! Kevin and I met the newlyweds back when we shot their engagement shoot at the San Diego Zoo–still one of my all time favorite shoots! So needless to say, we were so excited to hang out with the awesome couple!

The ceremony and reception were held at the Karl Strauss Brewery in Sorrento Valley. This location has a beautiful Japanese garden, with a large pond filled with gorgeous Koi fish. For those not living in San Diego, Karl Strauss is a big deal down here! They craft great beers and serve some of the most delicious food–always with beer as an ingredient!

The burst of bright colors from the bride and bridesmaids bouquets, and the beautiful archway of sunflowers set the tone of this joyous occasion.
It was wonderful meeting Gabrielle’s family, visiting from Minnesota and Ryan’s family visiting from different parts of California and Arizona. So cool!

The SweetBooth was even there! It was a blast seeing everybody having a blast in there! Make sure you check out those fun shots HERE.

Best wishes to Gabrielle and Ryan! We wish them a wonderful marriage filled with love, laughter, and beer!
