Michael & Marissa – Wedgewood Aliso Viejo Wedding

From their engagement session I quickly knew what I was walking into photographing this wedding. Marissa is kind and caring, Michael is quiet but  enjoys teasing people. This couple not only knew how to have a good time, but it was so obvious how much they loved each other and their son, Hunter. 

Every time I spoke to Marissa on the phone about her wedding I would be surprised at how long we talked. Each conversation felt like we could keep talking for awhile longer. I enjoyed hearing all the wedding details come together. I loved our conversations of the little surprises she had planned out for Michael. Only to find out Michael had a sweet one of his own. 

Marissa surprised Michael with stormtroopers to escort him down the isle. This is the first time I ever said “Go get the storm troopers” as we prepared for the “First Look” to surprise Michael. 

Not to mention the sweetest moment with Marissa and her dad.

We had to get a couple vendor photographs with the Storm troopers
