Keeping with family tradition, Laura and Michael got married on the anniversary of Michael's parents, in the same town as Laura's parents where it also rained! The wet weather didn't make a bit of difference, though, as Michael and Laura exchanged "I Do's" at Mission de Tolosa in downtown San Luis Obispo. Their ceremony was one of my favorites at the Mission because letters they had each written about the other were woven throughout, giving a personal touch that can sometimes be overlooked. Here's one of my favorites:
What Michael tells Laura:
"Over the years you have put up with my stubbornness, shenanigans and caveman-like lifestyle... you've supported me in everything I've aspired to do. Whether it be going to all of my baseball games while learning how to keep score, or keeping everything a positive situation, when it is not so ideal. It still amazes me you chose me and I can't wait to start a new life with you."
What Laura says to Michael:
"I have so much admiration for your sense of determination. You have never let challenges stand in your way and any road block you encounter is turned into motivation. Your self-confidence inspires me. You know who you are and are so loyal to your values and convictions. God has blessed me with you in my life and I am so committed to you and this life we will share. Now let's get married and make me a Glombinator!"
After the ceremony, Michael and Laura took the Central Coast Trolley to Holland Ranch, where Laurel from Adornments had turned the barn and tent into an unbelievable masterpiece. From the mouth-watering tri-tip prepared by Two Cooks to the Matt Cross Band's rockin' live music to the mechanical bull provided by Wild West Performers, this reception had something for everyone. I think you'll agree after watching the trailer, Michael and Laura had an epic wedding! Enjoy!
