joy and john's wedding

guest commentator: monica

it's amazing to me how many couples we've shot that have been together for over a decade... it's definitely an awesome honor. joy and john are high school sweethearts and their families had been waiting sooooo long for this day. self-proclaimed socalifornians at heart, they planned their union to be an intimate 30-person affair in the late afternoon glow on a cliff overlooking laguna beach, with a view almost as beautiful as this couple. it seemed there was not a dry eye witnessing this couple profess their love and commitment to one another.

a week later and after much-needed r&r on maui, joy and john returned to the bay to throw a fun-filled celebration for a much larger group of their family and friends. more pictures of the "afterparty" to come soon...

congratulations, joy & john! we couldn't be more happy for you both and wish you a marriage filled with lots of love, laughter, and "tarpolines." =)
