Tivoli Too Wedding Photos {Vanessa + Mike}

Happy 1 year anniversary to Vanessa and Mike!  Time certainly flies…Their wedding took place last December at the Laguna Beach wedding venue Tivoli Too!  The weather wasn’t exactly cooperating with us that evening, but the staff at Tivoli went out of their way to make sure we had plenty of dry space for photos.  It didn’t appear that the rain was going to stop, so the chairs were moved under a covered area outdoors (which would now be the new ceremony site) so guests would stay dry.  It was heartbreaking to see Vanessa so sad because she couldn’t have the beautiful waterfall background she was dreaming of.  Then…the rain stopped, literally 10 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to begin.  The awesome Tivoli staff busted their butts to move the 100+ chairs back to their original positions by the waterfall, and Vanessa and Mike gave the ok to start the ceremony 5 minutes early.  Yay!!

We were able to use Tivoli Terrace (across the street from Tivoli Too) for pre-ceremony photos (another great move by the staff at Tivoli).

It’s rare to find a wedding venue that looks this amazing at nighttime.  Tivoli Too! can pull off a gorgeous day or night wedding.weddings Tivoli Too!

My most favorite thing at Tivoli Too is the humongous disco ball chandelier hanging in the tent.  Don’t let the word “tent” fool you either.  It’s really beautiful.wedding reception Tivoli Terrace

    My name is Julie Susdorf and I am a professional wedding hair stylist. I styled my very dear friend Vanessa’s hair for her wedding and I am starting to create my own wedding hair business. I was wondering if i could use some of your professional photos from her special day for my website. I would of course use your photography website and your name as a reference to you and your photos linking your site to them. I would love to show off your work as well as mine on my professional website. Please help yourself and check out my site. I hope to hear from you soon!
