Times are not easy these days! We ALL know it. The past year and a half have been wild, but that doesn’t mean we should continue to put our lives on hold. Your wedding doesn’t need to wait any longer! Get out there and do whatever it takes to make your day happen the way you envisioned it. Check out these tips from a recent DIY Wedding at The Thursday Club to get some inspiration.
But first! A little about our gorgeous couple Krista and Dennis…
When you get married to your high school sweetheart, at your spot and your little boy walks down the aisle after asking for years when mommy and daddy are going to get married…things get pretty emotional. After being together for almost 8 years and raising the cutest kid on earth, Krista and Dennis wanted a no-fuss simple wedding. All they wanted was one day to celebrate their love and growth as a family and to enjoy the company of all the people they care about the most.
The Thursday Club
Krista planned the most gorgeous DIY wedding at The Thursday Club in San Diego. The club formed in 1921 for young women in the surrounding area. The club, and private garden, are located just a few blocks from the iconic Sunset Cliffs. Krista and Dennis have both lived in San Diego their whole lives and Sunset Cliffs is their spot, making the women’s club a perfect fit for the wedding. Our couples session at the cliffs was pure magic! Scroll down to see all of Krista’s personal DIY wedding decorations and a timeless portrait session at Sunset Cliffs.
Sunset Cliffs are one of San Diego’s most recognized locations. It attracts people from all over the area, including tourists. Once you see the view and experience the surroundings you’ll understand why. It’s an incredibly peaceful place with beauty for miles and miles. Many weddings, elopements, and/or couples sessions happen on the cliffs daily. It’s a favorite spot of mine and I know it well. If you love this location, get in touch and let’s go have some fun! Sunset Cliffs is cherished and loved by all locals, especially the residents, so if you do visit please be respectful of their space and obviously mother nature.

A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
