Marie and Mike’s wedding at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica was one of those days where I had a warm, fuzzy feeling just being a part of it. I hadn’t known Marie and Mike for very long (they only booked me about month before their wedding), but I already felt like I knew them so well. They are both incredibly warm and open people, it’s impossible for them to not feel like old friends the moment you meet them.
I’ve already talked about their love story here, and I felt so lucky to witness the next chapter on their wedding day. There were only 30 guests in attendance so it was a relaxed and emotional day with a heartfelt ceremony that had tears streaming down my face the entire time. When Mike read vows to Marie’s daughter, promising to love her as his own, I just about died.
Life is beautiful, you know?
