Long Beach Island Comes To Laguna Beach!

California Wedding Day Magazine debuted their “Newly Wed Wednesdays” blog segment with the wedding of Laura & Erik, a couple whose wedding I officiated last year.  I encourage you to check out the photo spread!

Laura & Erik and I hit it off within minutes of meeting--and not just because we’re all from back East, though that helped!  Turns out that Erik and his family vacationed for years on New Jersey’s Long Beach Island, which is where I spent most of my summers growing-up.  They had a large East Coast contingent at their wedding and it certainly felt like old home week for me!

Their wedding was magical—and, yes, I’m biased.  However, some of my favorite people worked to create that magic:  Jeannie Savage of Details, Details—I can’t say enough wonderful things about her––as a person and as an event planner. Jamie Puffer and her team at The Montage—a resort that embodies graciousness and hospitality and all in a way that is anything but pretentious.  Nisie of Enchanted Florist created their floral design and I continue to be in awe of how she and her team never repeat themselves.  And the photos by Braedon Flynn say it all—he’s a stylish, fun guy who sees what most of us don’t.
