10-10-10. Three perfect tens! That's how I'd score our wedding day! Al and I got engaged on August 1st which gave me plenty of time to plan an October 10th wedding <grin>. We chose a friend's backyard with a phenomenal view of La Jolla Shores. I rented some tables and chairs, a few heaters, hired a caterer, a day-of coordinator, a good friend to DJ, a girlfriend to shoot photos and bought some cupcakes, wine and beer, put up a few lights and away we went!
I want to thank fellow Tempo Team Member Joshlyn Turner for helping coordinate last minute details so that I could enjoy the wonderful day. She did a fantastic job making sure everything ran smoothly. My good friend, and professional sports DJ (Dodgers, Lakers, X Games), Patrick Sweeney, played our favorite tunes with the help of some rental equipment from Ken Feeman at MSI. Catering credit goes to Dennis Dahl of Mint Catering whose Mediterranean food was phenomenal! The guests would not stop talking about how delicious it was. They were also blown away by the fantastic cheesecake cupcakes from California Cupcake Company! The gorgeous photos were taken by my good friend, surf buddy and ICU-RN Angela Klinkhamer whose hobby of photography is nothing short of fabulous!
The amazing sunset was brought to us by God and my angles in Heaven! It was an excellent day and we were surrounded by close friends, our amazing families and a whole lot of love and laughter. It was by far my favorite produced event to date!
