One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Young and vibrant, with a splash of classic romance.
The Info—Photographer: Rad + In Love (APW Sponsor) / Location: La Jolla, California / Venue: La Jolla Woman’s Club / Midory’s Dress: Paloma Blanca / Midory’s Shoes: Badgley Mischka / Bridesmaid’s Dresses: Each bridesmaid got to pick out her own dress from Morilee because they are all different shapes and sizes. / Paul’s Suit: Friar Tux / Groomsmen’s Suits: Friar Tux / Flowers: Bespoke Occasions
Other cool stuff we should know about: Paul danced to ‘N Sync. Paul made me promise to not tell anyone that he used to be a huge ‘N Sync fan. For over seven years I kept that to myself, but the secret came out thanks to his groomsmen that knew him back in his ‘N Sync days. Not only did all of our 180 guests find out, but they also made the DJ play the song that he knew all of the dance steps to.
Our friends decided to vandalize our car during our reception. They tied soda cans to the back of the car, wrote on all of the windows with 1980’s purple lipstick, and placed obscene candy on all of the windows. Midory’s family is very Catholic so we had to run and scrape off as much as we could because there were a couple of bad words. It was a mess, yet it made the day perfect!
Favorite thing about the wedding: Our vows. We both did a beautiful job expressing our love, but we did an even better job promising to each other to work on the little things that drive us crazy.
