"2002." she said confidently in front of the die hard fan, "That was the year!".
A blonde hair blue-eyed beauty breezed into the party that night. John didn't really think twice until she rattled off the date of the LSU game he had just spoke about. She knew football? Everyone was baffled (well-except her brother who knew her inside and out). She continued by saying who LSU went on to beat in the national championship. This girl knew football. He stood shocked. Within a few days of her walking into the party that evening, Sheila walked into his LSU loving heart.
After almost 18 months of traveling back and forth between Denver and St. Louis, John asked Sheila to be his wife for life.
On April, 23, 2016, Sheila and John enjoyed their morning getting ready at the La Jolla Cove Suites.
Their first look was precious. John made the funniest sound when he first laid eyes on his beautiful bride & had us all cracking up!
They went off in a limo to Oceanside Beach, where they would seal the deal!
Their beautiful beach wedding took place in front of crashing waves and beautiful sunlight on Oceanside Beach.
Of course, my absolute FAVORITE elopement officiant, Rev. Christopher Tuttle, had us cracking up the entire time (okay-and tearing up behind my camera at times as well!)
With her closest friends and family standing near by, Sheila and John promised forever to each other!
They got special messages engraved in their rings for each other and this was Sheila's reaction. ADORABLE.
After the ceremony, we went over to the Oceanside Pier to take a few pictures as the sunset.
Their love started with a little knowledge of football history, so of course-a football had to be involved. A bride who would rather hold the football instead of the flowers? My kinda bride (:
Sheila and John,
I am so happy that distance no longer separates the two of you. It is SO obvious that you two belong together and that makes my heart jump with joy. Thank you for trusting me to capture that love and I pray that your love continues on for years and years to come. Cheers to you, football fans (:
A big thank you to the folks who brought this day to life:
