Kelly and Matt were such a  joy to work with.

MaGee Park in Carlsbad, CA.

I can’t think of a better wedding to kick off Social Butterfly, A Monarch Weddings Blog then the 1st wedding managed under the Monarch Weddings business name, which happens to hold an extra special place in my heart because it is also my little brother’s wedding.

MaGee park was the perfect backdrop to their San Diego beachy wedding, as it was their neighborhood park and a place they would visit daily when they would take their dog Tiki for a walk.  They spent many of afternoons and picnicking under the beautiful trees and would wonder around the parks neat barn like buildings and rose gardens.
