L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding, Part One
Seth and Michelle

You know how they say that laughter is the best medicine? When it comes to Seth and Michelle, laughter is not only their daily medicine, but the super glue that seals them together, binding them at the hip with the kind of connection that only they understand. They mess with each other, they laugh at themselves, and they take pride in their ability to one up each other with crazy photo poses on Facebook.

In other words, in the land of Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously, these two are the royalty. And they rule with absolute power.

And the best part about being around Seth and Michelle is that their lighthearted smiles and chill attitudes are totally contagious. So not only was this wedding blingin' and fabulous from top to bottom, but we laughed - hard - from beginning to end. Seth and Michelle chose L'Auberge Del Mar for their Catholic/Jewish combined ceremony (yes you read that right) and their rockin' reception. Thanks to the staff at L'Auberge for being so on top of everything and for always serving our couples so stinkin' well! We love you guys!

To start the day, I met with the girls during their prep while Jeff documented the morning with the boys. Michelle's mermaid Pronovias dress fit her glamorous personality perfectly!

I loved Michelle's feather hairpiece - it was soft but still added just enough drama.

I thought the girls' hot black dresses mixed with the soft purple flowers made the perfect dramatic combo that fit Michelle's taste perfectly.

It was so fun hanging out with the Catholic minister before the guests arrived at the ceremony. He was so cute and darling - a bit hard of hearing - so when I asked if he wouldn't mind stepping aside so I could grab a few photos of the empty ceremony, he asked if I could help him put on his robes and prep his station. So I held in my smiles, set down my camera for a few minutes, and helped him get ready. So stinkin' cute!

Once I had the ceremony site to myself (the minister stood by my side - so darling) I grabbed the amazing details of this seaside ceremony on the Pacific Terrace.

The dangling crystals and chandelier set the tone for muted elegance.

The minister's notes - so cute! Seth is Jewish and Michelle is Catholic, so the ceremony was a combination of the two traditions.

This ceremony was SO MUCH FUN. The Rabbi was hysterical, Seth and Michelle were all smiles, and the traditions were casual and meaningful. It fit their personalities PERFECTLY.
