Hooray for Sarah and Slawo!
On a gorgeous San Diego day in December, Sarah and Slawo tied the knot out on a cliff between the Cabrillo lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean. In December. Gotta love Southern California! The sun was shining, and the breeze wasn’t freezing cold. Love it!
Sarah’s bouquet was as colorful and gorgeous as the blushing bride, who was absolutely thrilled for her special day! We brought Sarah and Slawo around the lighthouse area before the big moment for a few individuals and some shots with family and friends as well.
Slawo was just as excited for his moment in the sun with his beautiful bride-to-be. Both of them were just grinning and giggling the entire time!
I love henna tatoos! Such amazing detail! See the pink fortune teller/”Cootie Catcher”? Yup. Those are Sarah’s vows to Slawo. Clever!
Sarah’s proud mother walked her baby girl down the long winding path from the lighthouse down to the ceremony site, where her mother also acted as officiant for the day!
Can you just feel Slawo’s excitement as Sarah walked up to him?
Seriously. We just LOVE the hearty laughter from a German man.
Sarah’s mom brought their rings around to each guest for a personal blessing and well wishes to the happy couple. Such a great touch!
Did I mention that this is December in SoCal?
We did it!
After the ceremony was complete, we met Sarah and Slawo over at Presidio Park for a few more shots before we headed over to the house in Mission Hills for an intimate dinner and reception.
A beautiful signature cocktail and yummy appetizers made the guests quite happy.
And live music! WE LOVE to see our La Vida Couples use live music during reception time.
Sarah and Slawo, congratulations! We are so very happy for you both, and we hope you travel safely back to Deutschland! Please keep in touch and be sure to send us some pictures of your new lives together. You know how much we love Germany!
