Tivoli Too Wedding in Laguna Beach – Donny & Ashley

We got to know Donny & Ashley a lot better when we did their engagement session in Southern Orange County and we were VERY excited for their big day.  They got ready at their home and Berit did a great job with all the girls makeup.  We took some photos at their home and then we headed off to Tivoli Too.  Not sure if you remember this day – but it was September 15th – the HOTTEST day of the year.  Yes – the HOTTEST!  It was hotter in Laguna Beach than it was in Las Vegas that day.  I felt so bad for Donny and the guys because they were in dark suits – then again – we were in dark clothing too.  🙂  The ceremony was done by Don Johnson and was awesome!  People were laughing, crying, the whole mix.  One of my favorite things Don did was had Donny and Ashley each write something they wanted to say to each individual parent.  It was so heartfelt and really made a beautiful ceremony even better.  It was a great wedding and despite the heat – people still got on the dance floor and partied.  We had some time after the reception so Donny and Ashley wanted some photos at the beach.  I don’t think we have ever seen so many people at the beach – which made it fun with all the “congratulations” comments to Donny and Ashley as we walked along the sand.  We are beyond happy for Donny & Ashley and can’t wait to see what unfolds in the next few years for them. 🙂
