Chris and Sara’s Wedding – Surf and Sand Resort, Laguna Beach

Chris and Sara are quite possibly the happiest bride and groom we have ever seen! I don’t think we ever told them to kiss, it just kept happening 🙂 The wedding vendors were top notch and Erin (at Surf and Sand) did a fabulous job keeping everything on time. Don Johnson just so happens to be the best officiant in OC and is almost like family to us. We always know what kind of ceremony we are in for with Don and he always gets us plenty of emotion to photograph! Congrats Chris and Sara! Your wedding day was perfect. 🙂

The proposal:

Chris and Sara took a trip to Florida to visit Chris’ parents, Sara’s grandparents, and Sara’s family (that may or may not have been there for the Jayhawks). They decided to go down a week early to reminisce of their younger years. They stayed in Tampa for the first weekend, which decided rain in November was their idea of a good time. On Sunday, they drove down to Chris’ parents’ house for Sunday-before-Thanksgiving dinner. On Monday, Chris and Sara met Sara’s grandparents for lunch, and got to talking so much that they were barely going to make it to the beach in time for one of their only rain-free sunsets of the week. They decided to go to Manasota Key Beach, where Sara’s grandparents used to live and had visited a couple times. If you know Sara, and we think you should, she kind of likes (read: is obsessed with) sunsets and beaches. Chris feels the same way, just not as outwardly. After the sun set, Chris spoke sweet nothings into Sara’s ear and pulled a gorgeous ring right out of his pocket that fit Sara’s third finger on her left hand perfectly! She was so excited to say that indeed, she would love to spend the rest of her life loving him!! They went back to celebrate with Chris’ parents, then a celebratory dinner at Sharky’s on the Pier! They later celebrated with Sara’s family when they traveled down to Orlando for this specific occasion (or the Jayhawks dominating the Old Spice Classic…we’re not sure). We are SO excited for our wedding and married life beyond!!!!!
