We recently shot a lovely wedding at La Casa Del Camino in Laguna Beach. This is a historical landmark right next to the Pacific Ocean where Carol and Greg had a beautiful, intimate wedding. We enjoyed working with LanAnh of Mele Amore and Elevated Pulse on this beautiful day. The floral decor was done in shells by the Bride herself. Carol did such an incredible job. I especially love the blue limpet shells she used in her hair and the creative way she used shells as place card holders. We always like to find out a little about our brides and grooms. Each couple’s story is different and we love hearing the details, so we asked Carol and Greg a few questions and, with their permission, we share their story here with you.
How did you two meet?
Our friends set us up, one of whom officiated the wedding. There was one slight caveat. I, Carol, lived in Southern California and Greg lived in Northern California. Roughly 171 flights between SFO and SNA later, we are now married!
Tell us about the proposal. Did you see it coming? How long was it in the planning? How did you feel? nervous, excited, surprised?
Greg proposed to me in Maui on a family vacation celebrating his dad’s birthday. I did not see it coming at all since it was not meant to be a romantic trip for just the two of us. He proposed on the beach in Korean! I was so surprised and shocked I didn’t even realize he asked in Korean until he retold the story of how he proposed to his family.
What is the one thing that you love most about each other?
I, Carol, love how Greg is my “Calm”. I can be dancing circles around him and he will always be his sweet, smart, and thoughtful self, maintaining his composure and urge to keep me still (and quiet).
