I first met Heather, about 6 years ago when we both worked at an interior design firm together.  Yes, there was a brief time after working in photo studios for about 10 years that I worked outside the photo field.  Crazy, huh? Shortly after being out of photo I realized I missed shooting immensely and we started our own company of Sipper Photography.   If it wasn’t for the photography bug that I caught during my senior year in high school, I probably would of been an interior designer.  I love color, fabrics and design!  The two actually have gone hand in hand for me over the years when Jeff and I worked for a company that did set photography for Home Depot.

Heather and I connected again this past year and I was excited to hear that she was engaged to such a wonderful man!  I admit, that I teared up when Scott mentioned how he loved looking into Heather’s beautiful blue eyes during his vows.  By now you all should know that I am a total sucker for weddings + love!!!

I am in love with the Surf and Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach!  What a fabulous spot for an oceanfront wedding ceremony.  It is a beautiful property with so many photo ops… it’s a photographer’s dream!  I guess it was pretty dreamy for Scott and Heather too as they took their vows on the Ocean Terrace overlooking the beach.  I was in awe the whole day to work with this fantastic couple on these grounds.  They are so much in love as you will see in all of the great moments we have to share.

You will love all of the details of this wedding coming from a designer.  Wait until you see the succulent floral theme… absolutely stunning!  Congratulations to Scott+Heather… to a wonderful life together.  Looking forward to drinks again soon at Splashes.

Kissing in the elevator.  These two actually had their 1st kiss in the elevator at the Surf and Sand, so we thought it was perfect to capture one on their wedding day!
