Mishel and Theodore: elegance and pure happiness
When we walked through the doors of Mishel and Theo’s suite at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in Downtown San Diego on Saturday July 3, 2010, I was first struck with Mishel’s beautiful and warm smile. The second thing I noticed were a group of fantastic ladies (little ones included) whose sole desire was to make sure Mishel and Theo’s day was as perfect as possible. Oh, and then of course there was also the beautiful suite itself.
You’ve heard people talk about a bride glowing on her wedding day. Well I think that Mishel personifies this – her eyes twinkling, her dimples in full force. And then there is her energy – that morning as we photographed all of the activity I could almost feel the butterflies myself, she was so excited to marry Theo.
The infectious, giddy smiles continued throughout their beautiful day, as the two were married at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in San Diego, followed by a romantic and elegant reception at Los Willows in Fallbrook, CA.
Mishel hadn’t yet decided which shoes to wear that day. But once she told me the story of how she was almost distracted by their cuteness when she wore them on the day he proposed, I was happy she selected the red “Y-not?” shoes. Is that appropriate or what! A little someone tries to make a case for the champagne shoes, but Mishel stuck with the red. Mishel shows off the perfume bottle given to her by her sister, who was deployed the day before the wedding. The stained glass, artwork, arches, and columns at Saint Joseph Cathedral were just amazing.
