From The Bride:
My husband and I were in a long distance relationship for 4 years while he was in Colorado attending the Air Force Academy and I was in California. We dated for about 6 months before he left, but we knew we wanted to stay together and make it work. About 2 years later he proposed and 2 years after that we got married! We knew right away we wanted to get married by the beach since we’re both Orange County natives and love the beach. We also fell in love with the beautiful Mission Basilica for our Catholic ceremony. Side note: about a year before the wedding, I found I was pregnant and due in the beginning of February..4 months before the wedding! That didn’t change our plans for our dream wedding and having our son there made it so special. We even had our own mother-son dance 🙂 It was the most perfect day!
