Sandra & Michael's Wedding at the Catamaran Resort

drum roll please. (insert recorded drum roll sound here or make your own.) the first wedding posted on our brand spankin new blog is...sandra and michael!! congrats you two. aren't you glad you waited this late in the year to get married? sandra and michael got married at the Catamaran Resort by the beach here in San Diego. if you need a quick refresher on these two go check out their engagement session we did earlier this year on our old blog. all caught up? sweet! let's check out the wedding.

sandra was having some fun rockin the veil

sandra looked absolutely amazing

some of the locals

sandra's 1st peek at michael. such an awesome moment.

not sure if this was a simple hand shake or if this guy was tipping michael for getting him a front row seat. sly move my man.

candy corn anyone?

don't even think about questioning their fanhood.

sandra and michael are big time Chargers fans, so we had to throw in some bolts with the rings. hmm...bolts, rings. what if...

mike grabbed a mic and caught us all off guard when he broke into song for his lovely new bride. would i lose "man points" if i said it was sweet?

michael wasn't the only entertainment at this party. since they were newlyweds now, sandra and michael decided to "auction" their season tickets for the next San Diego Chargers home game at Qualcomm Stadium and stay home from their usual sunday outing. no, this wasn't a cash auction. it was a dance off and the competition was fierce. here's a look at the superfan that won the prized seats.

i especially liked the footwork. very nice.

i want to thank these two beautiful ladies for being the life of the dance floor and showing everyone how it's done. they got the party started and kept it going all night. guess which song they were dancing to here. was it A) YMCA, B) The Chicken Dance, C) Walk Like an Egyptian, D) Macarena, E) Whoomp, There It Is.

i loves me some bubbles

thanks also to sandra and michael for being such a fun couple and inviting us to share some major moments in your life. congratulations to you both. we wish you a lifetime of health and happiness together. God Bless.

always and...

we also want to thank our good friend nely for coming along. she's part of our extended ohana & we absolutely love working with her. click here to check out some of her work.

I wanted to tell you that I love the new blog. The header rocks, and the bigger pictures do a good job really showing your work. Plus I wanted to say that you have really done a good job at keeping each wedding fun and fresh. I've been really impressed. Keep up the great work and look forward to talking to you hopefully soon!

P.S. Thanks for the nice comments regarding Ian, its' been a handful, but we couldn't be happier.
