Woods Cove Wedding!
Wave! - That seemed to be all that was said during this gorgeous beach ceremony in Laguna Beach, CA. Jen & Lisa planned to get married at Woods Cove Beach, which they ultimately ended up doing, but not before the ocean gave us all a little hello! As we crossed past a rock that jetted into the ocean a wave came crashing up and soaked us all. We hadn't thought about high tide creeping in during the ceremony time. We climbed back up the stairs and regathered our thoughts. Jen's brother ran down the beach to scope out another spot which wasn't any more ideal and we were losing light quickly. We decided to get nice and cozy next to some folks who had camped at the beach all day, and just have the ceremony right there! When it boils down to it, Jen & Lisa could have gotten married just about anywhere and you would have seen the love pouring from each of them. With their closest friends surrounding them, they had a perfect, intimate ceremony on the beach. They each wrote their own vows, which for those of us that could hear them were so sweet and endearing, there may not have been a dry eye in our small audience. The beach festivities ended as the sun set and we snuck in a few last minute beach pictures. They ended up getting exactly as they wanted, getting married with their toes in the sand. Post wedding, we all joined in for a feast of crab legs at Captain Jacks in Sunset Beach, CA along with champagne, wine and amazing company.
To follow up an amazing wedding on the beach, the girls hosted a reception the next day at the infamous Sky Room in Long Beach, CA along with about 75 guests who all couldn't wait to hear the stories of the previous day. Everyone who was on the beach said one word..."Wave"
