It was a beautiful fall day and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect in Pismo Beach, California as family and friends came together to witness the very intimate and beautiful wedding of Michelle and Vincent at Guiseppe’s garden. I have never had a bride who was so calm and collected all day….like she knew this was her destiny and she was going forward with all the confidence in the world.

Michelle’s best girlfriends (who were an absolute riot) from grade-school did not miss the event and we even took a few fun photos of these childhood friends. Michelle and Vince’s family and friends were gracious. The night flowed perfectly. I can’t really explain the peace, love, happiness and absolute joy that enveloped these two all day long except in these 5 words: there was no other way.

I really am a lucky girl.” It never ceases to amaze me at that I get to be a part of the beginning of a couple’s life together. This day was not an exception….Thank you, Michelle and Vincent. It truly was an honor. Here are a few from the day….
