A luxurious summer wedding adorned in florals, with a timeless and elegant feel that will never go out of style was how gorgeous bride Cindy envisioned her wedding to Michael. Captured by Southern California wedding photographer LUCY MUNOZ the couple got marred in the Mission Church of Santa Clara University which is the very place they met for the first time.
HOW DID YOU MEET? Michael and I met freshmen year of college at Santa Clara University, we were friends for five years prior to us dating.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Michael took me to Tilden Park in Berkeley California to the exact spot he first told me that he loved me. He set up a picnic, told me to dress up and to my complete surprise he read the original letter that he wrote me back when he first told me he loved me 3 years prior and then asked to spend forever with me. I was in complete shock and Michael had professional photographers to capture the perfect moment.
TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS/ATTIRE: My wedding dress was from Winnie Couture and Michaels tux was from the Black Tux. It took me about 8 different wedding dress shops to find the right one but I knew once I stepped into this A-Line princess gown that it was the perfect one for me.
DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: Opulent florals, dreamy pinks, lavenders, and nudes.
FAVOURITE DETAIL OF THE DAY: The photo of Michaels mother who passed away while we were in college.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Find an amazing wedding planner, like Linda to help and enjoy the process! Celebrate every moment of planning your wedding and do your best not to stress out because at the end of the day its about celebrating your love more than the details.
MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? When Michael dipped me on the dance floor, we didn’t practice!
ANY OTHER DETAILS THAT HELP TELL THE STORY OF YOUR DAY? We had 70 of our closest family and friends at the wedding. We kept the invite list super small and I am so happy about it because our day was filled with so much love, laughter, the dance floor was packed all night and we had a blast!!
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR HONEYMOON: We enjoyed 10 beautiful days on the Island of Maui at the Ritz Carlton. We spent our days hiking, tanning on the beach, snorkeling with turtles and eating some delicious food, we can’t wait to go back!
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE OR DO DIFFERENTLY? I wouldn’t change anything, my wedding absolutely exceeded my expectations and I wish I could do it all over again!
