Set in the era of the 1920’s during the days of prohibition, this wedding couple kept the place rocking and hoping all night long with music and drinks. In Dogtown Dance Theater if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it. Story as written by the bride and groom with photos by Awesomesauce Photography.
We met on Match.com and been together over 3 years now!
It rained for 2 weeks straight then the weather cleared up to a beautiful October day sunny, blue skies, and 55 degrees. We went to the pipeline (one of our first dates) and he proposed. I said I love you and yes but seriously over water?!?!?
My dress is a classic silhouette with embroidered detailing and built in bodice. The bottom had a gorgeous train made of soft tool. We were paying for the wedding on our own so when I first went to try on dresses my sister went straight for the sale rack at David’s bridal. She found my dress originally marked at $1400 and it was on sale for $350!!!! Let’s just say I got lucky since I also absolutely loved it!
We both enjoyed the first look! Not only did we get some amazing pictures, but it also allowed us some time alone that day
Favorite moment was when the bridesmaids entered the ceremony dancing with blow up guitars and microphones to Bon Jovi living on a prayer. Only 3 people in the room knew about it and that was only so they could film it. The look on my husband’s face, the groomsmen’s and guests was priceless!!!!
