i’m not sure where to even start with today’s post. i introduced my Aunt Jill on the blog over two years ago. i shared how she is one of my favorite people, and just how special she is to me. i didn’t share the rough road she has been down. but, without going into detail, let me just say that her story amazes me! she is one of the strongest people i know. and i’ve just been waiting for the day when she would find someone to just love life with! she deserves it. Michelle makes her SO incredibly happy! when i first heard about Michelle, i knew she was the type of person i would love to be around. the stories i heard were full of adventure! and, when we first met Michelle, no surprise…we fell in love with her immediately. her sweetness, her genuineness, and her beautiful soul just radiate from her.
when Jill & Michelle asked Stephen and i to capture their special day, we couldn’t have been more honored or excited! and what a day it was! it was so incredibly beautiful and intimate. we started at Hotel Laguna, where the beautiful brides got ready…
these are my gorgeous cousins…Steff & Taylor!
the ceremony was in Crescent Bay Park in Laguna Beach, overlooking the ocean. can you say AMAZING! my mom officiated, my brother & cousin sang, my sister did the gorgeous makeup for the brides…it was a family affair.
Stephen took this shot…one of my faves!
after the ceremony, we headed to the beach for some sunset pictures…
the best part of the reception was when everyone started singing “We Are Young” by Fun…flash mob style! so much fun!!!
HUGE thanks to everyone who helped to make this day so special! thank you, Jill & Michelle, for the great honor of being your photographers! we love you!!!
