Andrew and Rachele’s Wedding – Del Mar Beach, Camp Pendelton

Two weeks ago, I had the privilege to assist and shoot along Tommy Huynh ( for the beautiful wedding of Rachele and Andrew. The wedding took place at Del March Beach on Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, CA. I was excited to be taking photos of a military wedding,  at a beach on the military base of Camp Pendleton. The weather couldn’t have been any nicer, as it was a gorgeous day outside. Andrew and the groomsmen spent earlier of the day playing at the beach, what better way to get prepared for the wedding. Rachele had all her girlfriends there in preparing her for this day. I met them for the first time at the event and they made me feel at home. Everyone at the wedding was super nice and it was great to work with everyone there.

The wedding was at a beach with chairs laid out and a great beach background. The reception area was decorated with all DIY decorations. The place looked like it was setup by a professional wedding coordinator. It was elegant, cute, and creative. I loved their little thank you notes they had on each plate.

    Hi Jaemi - I came across the photo blog entitled "Andrew and Rachele’s Wedding – Del Mar Beach, Camp Pendelton" while on my online search of wedding beach venues. I'm not familiar with this area of Camp Pendleton... Was this wedding done at the southern end, Camp del Mar, where you can rent the beach cottages? Is that where the patio is? Was the reception catered by one of the base clubs, or did they bring in outside catering? Any information you could provide me would be wonderful as this setup is exactly what I've been looking for.
