tesse and mike

i have been DYING to get this wedding up ever since i shot it! and its finally up! tesse and mike were married at this amazing location in san diego - the scripps institution of oceanography. it was this adorable little “house” with a FABULOUS view overlooking the ocean. really, you can’t buy views like that!

i met tesse and mike for their engagement shoot back on new years day in pasadena, and had so much fun seeing them again for their special day. they are SO sweet together. mike and tesse met on eHarmony - which if you haven’t heard, is the new place to be. seriously. i have had multiple weddings with couples who have met online, and they are some of the best matched couples! mike and tesse went on their first “real” date to the la observatory, and after sharing that little tidbit with the completely fabulous heather from amorology, they decided on an astrology themed wedding. of course, amorology went all out and had everything from glowing stars hanging above to a complete seating chart on a map of all the constellations! twigg botanicals did a beautiful job on the flowers, and the delicious food was done by one of my favorites - crown point catering. thanks also to kelly who second shot with me!

you absolutely HAVE to check out the slideshow to catch much more of the gorgeous day!

    You have BLOWN me away. I’m sitting at my desk at work and totally not wanting to get back to work… I just want to watch that slide show over and over again. Seriously.

    Thank you for capturing the incredible joy we felt all day - it really comes through in your images. Ah-maz-ing.

    Fantastic pictures!! What a way to keep the wonderful memories of that day alive. These photos are treasures!

    I love the first one of Mike by the railing and Tesse coming up from behind. Also the one of them laughing on the bench.
