Roni has been my best friend since 8th grade, when we met in Mr. Nichols’ history class. On Friday March 20th she called me & said “Nathan & I want to get married on Monday!” Long story, but basically her fiance’s parents were in town, & they decided to go ahead & finally seal the deal. A million thoughts rushed through my head upon hanging up the phone. I wanted to make the day as special as I could for Roni & Nathan…with only 2 days to plan.
First on the list: Call Tricia and beg for a last minute bouquet. I just can’t imagine a bouquet-less bride. Second: Find a location for a small, intimate ceremony (beach below Heisler Park in Laguna Beach) & dinner for about 25 people (Las Brisas). Well…everything turned out perfect, & with how radiant & gorgeous Roni looked, you never would have guessed she bought the dress the night before & sewed on the sash herself!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Tricia for not only providing a killer bouquet, but also corsages & boutonnieres for the parents, a big bag of rose petals, AND about 3 dozen roses to decorate the dinner table! Tricia: you are amazing!

Believe it or not, this was not posed. Purely candid moment
The dress originally had a black sash attached. We found cream shantung silk at the fabric store right after buying the dress, & Roni created a more “bridal” looking sash.
