We are so excited to share Mckenna and Mark’s Catalina View Gardens Wedding, captured by Stacee. This event was beautiful and it felt like walking into a fairytale! We loved seeing the pastel details and soft, rustic touches that Mckenna and Mark added to this wedding. Our newest newlyweds first met during a camping trip in San Onofre, but Mark was taken at the time. About a year later Mckenna’s friend invited her to a BBQ that Mark was hosting. It ended up being a set up that neither of them were expecting…They hit it off and the rest was history!!
We love their proposal story and we think they tell it best: “One of our favorite things to do is ride around on a Sazuki bike up at Lake Naciemento. We go there several times a year and stay at this family’s lake house. We have a beautiful spot we always ride to that overlooks the lake and is away from all the people and houses. We go there every time we visit but this time was special…The day after Thanksgiving, I could tell he was acting strange. He had me sit and stand in specific places but I didn’t read too much into it. When he asked me to stand on the rock I knew something was up. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. All of it is such a blur, but obviously I said YES! Luckily he hid his gopro in the bushes and we have the entire proposal on video that we can watch over and over!!”
These two decided to move into the next step of marriage based on their companionship. They knew they could get through anything and each other no matter what. Mckenna loves Mark’s humor and passion and he loves her loyalty and companionship. They love to bike along the strand, go boating on any lake, take a road trip, snuggle on the couch, and have pizza nights with friends. We know Mckenna and Mark will love getting back to these hobbies and we cannot wait to see how their marriage grows over the coming year now that their Catalina View Gardens wedding is over!
