Coronado Breakers Beach Wedding

Featured in Exquisite Weddings Magazine

Sunshine & Eric’s inspiration for their Coronado Breakers Beach Wedding was a blend of ocean inspired colors and textures with a Zen-like, laid back feel.  We fell in love with the bright turquoise ties, bamboo trimmed cake, and white parasols that shaded their guests.

True to her name, Sunshine is one of those rare people who can literally light up a room with her smile.  One of the funniest moments of the day happened as Sunni began her walk down the aisle. Just as she rounded the corner and came into view of the audience (and her future husband!), someone accidentally stepped on her veil from behind, unexpectedly yanking her head back.  Sunshine burst out laughing as she spun back to see what had happened, and Eric said this was the best thing that could’ve happened.  He had felt himself suddenly overcome with emotion and beginning to tear up as he first saw her…as she laughed his face broke into a huge grin. He knew then and there that nothing could be more perfect- and that his fiance not only had a good sense of humor, but could handle all life’s little “accidents” in stride, with a beaming smile and a laugh. Apparently their guests agreed, as roaring laughs and cheers emitted from the entire crowd!


“Jen and Shane are AMAZING!! Their photography is wonderful and they’re friendly, laid-back style make picture taking lots of fun! Even those who are camera shy look great in their photos, because Jen and Shane make everyone feel comfortable and beautiful. They photographed our engagement, wedding, and pregnancy.

I still receive complements from people I hardly know on our wedding photos (which are on Facebook), even though our wedding was 1 1/2 years ago! This past weekend, my mother-in-law saw pictures from her wealthy friend’s daughter’s New York wedding. Even though they had the best vendors money could buy, she still thought our pictures were more beautiful and better captured the essence of the day. And she is a difficult woman to please!

Jen and Shane do an excellent a job capturing the little details on film, like friends sharing a joke, a kid stealing a piece of candy from the candy table before dinner, and a groom giving his bride a loving look when she’s engaged in another conversation.

Although my review focuses on the quality of their photography, Acqua is always professional, responsive, and just a ton of fun to work with. I highly recommend Acqua to all my friends!”
