Kristi + Andy {Engaged}!

Kristi and Andy are my second 'internet love story' couple!  They've been together for 3.5 years and still going strong!  When Kristi approached me to coordinate her wedding I was surprised to hear she had been planning her wedding from the Bay Area.  I asked her why Andy and her chose to wed in Southern California.  Her answer?  "A vintage-themed wedding at the Queen Mary".  Yes, the historic Queen Mary!  I've never stepped foot on this boat before.  Not only am I excited to see Kristi and Andy get married, but I'm thrilled that this will be my first time coordinating on a historic boat!  Their wedding will definitely be timeless and elegant!  This e-session featuring this cute Bay Area couple was shot at the Queen Mary by the fabulous photographer, Nathan Nowack.  Check out Nathan's blog post for the full gallery!  Enjoy the gorgeous pictures everyone!

Marisol + T.J. {Engaged}!

This love story is 7 years in the making.  Marisol and T.J. are my very first destination wedding couple.  This sweet couple met in 2004 at a mutual friend's party.  They had a long distance relationship for several years.  She lived in Carson and TJ lived in Oxnard, which is also my hometown.  (Small world right?)  TJ proposed to Marisol on a hot air balloon ride in Temecula on February 13, 2010.  During the ride the pilot made a suggestion to Marisol to take pictures of the vineyard.  To her surprise, there was a sign that read "Marisol, will you marry me?"  Very romantic and sweet!  Marisol and TJ will have a beautiful beach wedding at Marina Maroma Paradise Beach Club in the beautiful Riviera Maya in January 2012.

This pretty e-session took place at three locations:  Old Town San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Beach, and Irvine.  It was photographed by one of my favorite wedding photographers, Mieng Saetia.  Enjoy!
