FINALLY, the long awaited blog from Julie and Mike’s AMAZING wedding at the St. Regis in Monarch Beach. These two deserve a TON of credit for the amount of work they put into making sure this wedding was super entertaining for their guests. Not only did they coordinate a choreographed first dance with their entire wedding party by taking weeks worth of lessons through the Bella Ballroom Dance Studio (perhaps the best I have ever seen!), but they had one of the most beautiful, emotional ceremonies I have witnessed, Julie had multiple wardrobe changes to keep her guests guessing:), they had a photo booth, huge dessert station and finally, saving perhaps the best for last, a LATE NIGHT Taco Truck for their dance party/rockstar guests who made it till the end! I was so excited about the taco truck that I was the first person to try one:)
I knew this wedding was going to be epic when the fabulous Laurie Davies with 5 Star Weddings and Events was involved. She always knows how to design a gorgeous ceremony and reception and to make sure that everything runs perfectly! I also had my partner in crime, Lori Yohe, with me JUST to add even more confusion to our names (Laura, Laurie and Lori:) But in all seriousness, this was one of the most touching weddings I have been to. Julie and Mike balance each other out perfectly and you can tell that Mike is always looking after Julie. I loved how the both of you mentioned similar things in your vows as well, without even planning it. THAT is a sure sign you both are on the same page:) I know you two have experience with photo shoots after viewing your gorgeous book from Taiwan:), but I hope that you can feel the emotion of your real wedding day in our photos!
