to steal a line from jerry maguire’s ‘you had me at hello’ I know this much is fact for me… susan and mike, ‘you had me at our dog is going to be in our wedding’ seriously folks, it doesn’t take much to make me happy, but when I hear that someone’s pup is going to play an active role in you big day, I am over the moon! I think the best decision roland and I made was having jake and sampson with us as we tied the knot – it simply wouldn’t have been right without them. so I was already excited as I packed up and headed to ocean city on this gorgeous fall morning. susan had a beautiful condo right on the boards where she was getting ready and mel joined mike just 5 blocks up the beach.  because they met and fell in love in OC, they wanted their wedding to be all about our little resort town – from their beach wedding to their transportation to their venue…. all was so them and so perfect!  after everyone was ready, mel and I headed down to sunset park to shoot their first look and were shortly joined by the rest of the bridal party who were so much fun. the ceremony was performed by susan’s brother and was equal parts hysterical and touching as pup lucy stood by (warning… there are a LOT of photos of lucy, but really… would you expect anything else from me??) after a slight delay by the boardwalk corvette parade :) we all boarded the tram and headed down the boards to take photos at an arcade and on our walk to the reception. the OC theme continued at harrison’s where the guests got a great view through the floor to ceiling windows of the sunset over the bay. this group was beyond fun and had the place jumpin’ I even got coaxed out onto the dance floor for a spin…. or pulled out… maybe gently pushed… either way, it was fun lol. as susan and mike left the reception and walked though a path of sparklers down the boards I was just so happy for them and their perfect day!

 

susan and mike, thank you for such a wonderful day! you, your friends and families (including miss lucy of course!) made for such an amazing wedding that will be remembered as one of our favorites – we wish you so much happiness is your life together xoxo
