Beauty on the Beach


Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of my great friend, Stephanie. We met through work and became good friends. She's one of the most outgoing, caring, vibrant women I know. And her husband, Chris, is just as awesome. Maybe it's because the two are Southern, but they are the nicest people ever. And their love story is the cutest!

They had briefly dated a few years back but she was moving to LA so they broke it off. Fast forward a few years, lots of Myspace stalking on Chris's behalf, and Steph was visiting her family in Virginia last year. While in town the two rekindled their love and a within months, Chris packed up and drove to LA to be with Stephanie. Now that's love!

Chris and Steph's nuptials were held in Marina Del Rey overlooking the harbor filled with sailboats at sunset at Burton W. Chase Park. The only thing more gorgeous than the setting was the bride. Literally, breathtaking.


Highlights of the night: 1. seeing my friends marry, of course! 2. Their slow dance that erupted into a choreographed number to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel". 3. The candy bar!

Overall, it was a beautiful wedding and I was honored to be in attendance! Congrats Steph and Chris ♥
