Richard and Stacy walk the sand after their wedding ceremony at the Hilton Torrey Pines.

There are times I instantly connect with my wedding couples and meeting Richard and Stacy the first time was one of those. In fact, I felt that connection in the initial emails with Stacy. These connections always prove to be instrumental in planning their party and ultimately the end result.

Richard and Stacy were married at the Hilton Torrey Pines on October 14, 2017. It was an intimate gathering of 40 friends and family celebrating two wonderful people.

When guest counts are “small,” it can sometimes be difficult to get a real dance party going. But not the case for this crowd. Despite what I’m calling the “world's smallest dance floor,” this crowd was great and kept the good time flowing all night.
