Michelle and Shawn's wedding was absolutely incredible! Their love shined through in everything they did from the African dancing, drumming, cake cutting to first dance. I am so happy for the them... the night was successful, they planned the whole thing themselves and it was unique and special and totally perfect for THEM. It totally inspired Geoff and I to make our day special and meaningful. Michelle's dress was so beautiful and was made with the lace from my mom's wedding dress and the gold silk that Shawn brought her home from China a few years ago. The dress layed perfectly over her 5 month baby belly! (Not sure if I've even blogged about that.... they are expecting!!!!!! Yeayyyy!!!!!)
My parents rented a house on the beach where we all spent the weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect and the sun was shining on us each day!
Geoff took a dip every morning - he's crazy. He made JJ go with him!
We spent a few hours on Friday setting up at the wedding site! It was absolutely incredible... check out that view!
Not a bad location for our weekend home!
Michelle and Shawn Smolinski!
Michelle learned how to play an African drumming song and played it for Shawn.
This is what we did the next day. I love California!
