Mr and Mrs Light

I love a perfect wedding day.  Perfect couple, perfect venue, perfect Fall day, perfect vendors to help make the day run smoothly.  And that’s exactly what April and Patrick’s wedding day was.  Perfect.  April and Patrick were married at the St. Regis Monarch Beach.  With an October wedding at the beach you can never really predict if it will be 90 degrees or raining, but the weather was a perfect 78 degrees.  Both the ceremony site and reception site were so intimate.  I loved that.  Their reception site, Club 19, was outside and when you’re getting married by the beach I love being outside and not in a ballroom.  April and Patrick both looked stunning, but more importantly they were so happy.  They were beaming!  Michelle from Details Details was the coordinator for the wedding and I know the day will always run smoothly with Details Details on board.  The amazing White Lilac did the flowers and decor.  I always love to see what they come up with!

April and Patrick, congratulations!  Thank you for having me shoot your wedding day!  It has been so much fun getting to know you.  You two are absolutely perfect for each other!  I hope you two are having a fabulous European honeymoon!  Can’t wait to hear all about it!  Here’s your slideshow!

They had a cookie bar with cookies from my most favorite place in the whole wide world!  Diddy Riese!  I’m not going to lie.  I ate one.  Or maybe two.
