Newport Beach House Wedding | Emily & Mike | Lefebvre Photography

 

"For some reason, our paths never crossed until July 4, 2014, even though we shared very close mutual friends. It wasn't until we hit the dance floor at one of my best friend’s weddings that very rainy 4th of July, that Mike and I finally met. Despite his somewhat questionable dance moves, I was intrigued, and from that day on we have been inseparable. And then, on a cool and cloudy day at the beginning of last May, I suggested that Mike and I take a walk around the park outside of our house. A few minutes into our walk, Mike completely took me by surprise by getting down on one knee and asking me to marry him. Tears immediately started pouring from my eyes and I threw myself down on the ground with him. It wasn’t until a few minutes later, when I had stopped screaming and crying, that Mike finally said to me, “So, do you want to put this ring on?” 

And like any normal newly engaged couple, one week after our engagement, we tore apart our kitchen and began the process of installing a brand new kitchen. So amidst boxes of pots and pans, in our makeshift living room/kitchenette, we also started planning our wedding. We both love the beach and we quickly decided that the Newport Beach House, with its endless views of the ocean, was the perfect place for us to celebrate our marriage with our friends and family. Our main focus has been on creating a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere, allowing our guests to be able to enjoy a wonderful summer evening at the beach. We also haven't been caught up too much in the small details of wedding planning; our main focus is getting married to each other and having our loved ones there with us to celebrate as we begin our lives together." - Emily
