{real wedding} magalie + mike's beach elopement

Today real wedding is pretty special to me.  It's from a fellow blogger and friend, Magalie from The Demoiselle.  I was so excited that she was willing to share her wedding with us on P&P. 
Take it away, Magalie... ?A big hello to all you Postcard & Pretties readers out there.  I'm thrilled to be sharing one of the best moments of my life with a friend and blogger who keeps me inspired on a daily basis.  It was February 16th when we learned the Empire State Building Observatory only holds weddings for 14 couples once annually on the 14th of February. There went the only site in NYC we could picture ourselves getting hitched. Onward to Plan B...

For Christmas he had surprised me with a mid-winter escape to Casa Laguna in Laguna Beach and we were scheduled to fly out the following week on the February 24th. In eight days I found a stunningly sweet site overlooking the oceanan Officiant, a driver, the best Laguna Beach florist ever and my wardrobe.  Did I mention I also designed my own ring? It's astounding what can be accomplished when you put your mind to it.

For me, eloping was a no-brainer because it meant no worries about the guest list or the bouquet
toss or anything other than the two of us. For him, the instant gratification and adventure of it all
was impossible to resist. At the heart of the decision was a focus on the life journey we’re beginning
together."
Our wedding day was momentous but it also felt like happenstance. It was kismet...simply meant to be.
In that moment and every day since, we fit.
A special thanks to Jen Lauren Grant who’s incredible energy and photographic talent was indispensible on the big day.
