Romantic Coronado Beach Engagement

When you think of San Diego, it’s not likely that rainy weather would come to mind; but that’s just what San Diego had in store for our engagement photos. Since we traveled from Michigan for the shoot, rescheduling to a sunnier day was not in the cards; so hours before the shoot photographer Pauline Conway and videographer Sammie Milner suggested we switch photoshoot locations.

Luckily the new location was my favorite hometown beach, Coronado Beach; home of the infamous Hotel Del Coronado. As we arrived, there was still a light drizzle so Pauline and Sammie suggested that we take some cover utilizing some of the stunning beachside homes to escape the rain. Halfway through the session, the clouds parted, the rain stopped; and the most stunning rainbow appeared in the sky.

Since it had been raining, the usually busy Coronado Beach was practically empty and we set up a beachside picnic complete with a cheese plate, wine, and a stunning garden bouquet designed by Zeyda Evans from The Little Fleur Co.

When planning and designing our engagement shoot it was important to me that we not only have an aesthetically pleasing picnic design but that it was also intentionally planned. Our beachside picnic featured the same fruit and wine options that made up some of the first meals that we shared during their early dating. It was so special for us to incorporate some of our early memories as we celebrated our engagement and future together. 

We spent the remaining session time eating our curated snacks, cheering to our future with sweet harvest Riesling wine, and showing off our swing dancing moves as an homage to swing dancing we did on our first date.

She took care of communication with vendors, planning, my timeline, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She turned my reception into a fairytale. Thank you Jeannene Lillie Events for all your help and making my life so much easier!"

Amy and trevor

"Jeannene is such a wonderful person to work with! She helped me coordinate and plan my micro-wedding and kept up with me regularly. It made me feel so special and recognized. I highly suggest her services! Honestly I was so happy to talk to her every time we were on the phone because she always wanted to get my feedback."

"Jeannene seriously goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and really has an amazing eye for your design."

Krista and Deno

I am not the typical girl who dreamt about all the details of planning my wedding. I really just wanted to show up the day of and call it a day. 2020 surely threw us multiple curve balls but working with Jeannene Lillie Events really allowed me to have a stress free wedding planning experience, and my big day was more perfect than I ever could have dreamed. My vendors were all on the same page and the day flowed so smoothly. The team helped set up decorations and moved my florals and they looked stunning. Everyone we worked with was so flexible and friendly, and I would recommend them 1000 times over.

"Jeannene took care of the littlest details that I would have never even thought about."
