We met 6 years ago in San Diego. Chris is a helicopter pilot in the Navy. We stayed together through 2 deployments that truly tested our patience, independence and love, but each proved our strength as a couple.
We have hiked, camped and explored most of Southern California and San Diego and one of our favorite places is Balboa Park. Chris actually proposed in the California Tower which you can see in the background of some of our photos.
The wedding brought together our families for the first time, mine being from Chicago and his being from New York. The whole weekend of celebrations was truly a dream. We are so glad we were able to share our vows in our favorite place with so many of our favorite people.
Thank you so much Mikaella for making such a gorgeous gown. I felt amazing all day and night and didn’t want to take it off!
