We arrived on a windy rainy Saturday. I have to tell you that Carly was the calmest bride I have ever met on a wedding day. Let alone a bride that has pouring rain in her forecast on her wedding day. The original plan was to have an outdoor ceremony on the lawn and for Carly to come in by boat but with the extreme weather, we had to go to plan B. Thank goodness they have a great team of people that surround them.

Carlsbad, CA. will always occupy a very special place in my heart, so I was beyond excited knowing that Elaine & Erik’s wedding was taking place in Carlsbad last weekend. The friendly staff at the Sheraton Resort set up a gorgeous, garden style setting, complete with on-demand sunset and ocean views during the ceremony.
Gentlemen, we need to talk for a second. Your big day is coming up and I’m pretty sure you want yourself, and your boys, looking sharp and dialed in.
