Julissa and Steve’s wedding was SO fun. It was at Dolphin Bay Inn and Spa in Pismo Beach last Friday, and it was an absolute perfect day: no wind, lots of sunshine, not too hot, and an amazing venue.

I don’t know if I know anyone with more energy and awesome facial expressions than Julissa. It was so fun processing these photos, I would find myself smiling often and calling my wife over to see them. Steve was so hilarious and fun too, as you’ll see below.

Steve and Julissa are currently enjoying themselves in Hawaii. They are also the first couple I’ve had published in print – they were featured in this month’s edition of Sacramento Bride. More on that later. 🙂

Steve was HILARIOUS the whole night. Running around with major excitement on his face, doing a choreographed first dance….dude was on fire!

This was quite possibly the most hilarious best man speech I have ever heard. Julissa, Steve, and all of the guests were cracking up the whole time.

They whipped this out at the end of the toasts:

Oh man…here’s the coordinator, Rick. Great guy to have coordinating a wedding. All of a sudden in the middle of the reception, he shows up with a mobile drink dispenser backpack thing on. SOOO funny. Everyone loved it. He was walking around dispensing Seabreeze shots.

Danielle, Anthony, and I went all over Nipomo on this shoot. Danielle’s a photographer too, and I had the privelege of having her second shoot Melissa and John’s wedding with me back in June.

Nicole and Jesse got married at the Kaleidoscope Inn in Nipomo, CA. They both have a real way of making a person feel important and welcome – I’ve thought many times while hanging out with them, “This couple’s going to do well in life.” 🙂

It rained a little in between the wedding and reception (rain in August on the Central Coast – whaaaaaat?!) but nobody seemed to mind, and it cleared up right as the reception was getting under way.
