Heather and Mike – Tivoli Too in Laguna Beach, CA

How often do you hear a bride say that she met the man of her dreams in a bar??  Not often, I assure you.  But this wasn’t just any guy.  When Mike and Heather were both out with groups of friends in Santa Barbara, CA, he asked her to dance and says he immediately knew she was special.  Fast forward three years, and this beautiful celebration is the result.

Dad and I really enjoyed spending the day with these two – it was well worth the drive Tivoli Too in Laguna Beach, where Heather and Mike held both their ceremony and reception.

While turquoise was the color of the day, Heather threw in a surprising pop of hot pink, which definitely seemed to suit her fun and lighthearted personality.

The bridesmaids were beautifully accessorized – I just love the unique color combo!

These were some fun (and beautiful) ladies.  Nice choices, Heather!

Isn’t she pretty?

Woo hoo!  Just Married!

Thank you, Heather and Mike, for asking Dad and me to be part of your day.  We had such a great time with you and feel so privileged that you asked us to capture such happy memories.  My wish for you is that all of the joy, love and laughter that surrounded you on your wedding day continue into your married life together!  Congratulations to both of you!
