One of the things I love most about working in the wedding industry, is the opportunity to meet so many amazing couples! Julie and Blaine were nothing short of simply amazing to work with. In fact, I'd like to think Julie and I have built a pretty good friendship in the short months that we've known each other. (or maybe we both just really love having a reason to drink wine.)

I love that they selected a Thursday to get married along the La Jolla shores at the Wedding Bowl. Julie was looking her finest after Ankerman Artistry was perfected her hair and makeup. Her daughter made a beautiful Maid of Honor. 

While Blaine and his Best Man were waiting for the bid day to get started, there was one important guest that was rushing to get to San Diego. Julie's mother. She was diagnosed with cancer just a few months prior to the wedding. The doctors said the earliest she could travel was the day of the wedding after her radiation treatment. 

She was delayed, rerouted to Orange County, where an Uber driver was able to get her to the ceremony  just in time for the sun to peek out. And there Julie was...walking down the aisle. 

The ceremony was perfect, as was the reception. I absolutely love these two and I'm praying they have many more beautiful years to come.

Congrats Julie & Blaine!

Special Thanks to the vendors!
