Monica & Marion
Photography By Tony Morey
September 27, 2008
The Connect: They met at work and finally eight years later got married.
The Proposal: At the time living in different cities, she went to Los Angeles to spend Valentine’s Day with Marion. She woke him up with a basket of gifts. He was so excited to give her the ring that he had recently purchased that he just held it out for her as a gift and asked her if she liked it? Several times he asked this and still hadn’t actually asked her to marry him. To this day she still jokes with him that he still never asked her to marry him.
The Celebration: They thoroughly enjoyed all of their family and friends at their anything but traditional event. Their wedding was all about having a good time and bringing in a modern lounge feel to their reception with great ambient lighting. They chose whites and blues for the color palette, which definitely created a unique wedding. The couple continued the celebration as they moved the party to a Gaslamp nightclub. They still have people telling them, it was the best wedding they had ever attended.
Monica’s Advice: “Relax, remember to take time to enjoy the day!”
