where do i even start with this one? wow. grace and jared’s wedding at scripps seaside forum was insanely fun (as you’ll see), but i’m getting ahead of myself.

for grace and jared, this is the day when their engagement would come full circle. it was on the beach right in front of scripps, with friends that had flown in from new york to witness it hiding nearby, where jared somehow managed to surprise grace with a proposal she knew was coming. she just didn’t know it was going to be that day. now here they were, about to say “i do.”

as we walked up to the venue everything looked so elegant and innocent. that all changed at the starting bell, well, at least the innocent part. it was the kind of night that was straight out of a music video. i can only describe it with the words of jared’s favorite artist…

infect me with your lovin. fill me with your poison.”

seriously though,it was awesome, but we pretty much knew it was going to be after doing their engagement session.

one of the many many reasons we friggin love this couple is just when you think they’re getting all serious, one of them will say or do something ridiculous and have everyone around them smiling. that was the story of the day. everywhere i looked i saw someone laughing, crying, or laughing so hard they were crying.

we thought her lazaro wedding dress looked amazing all by itself, but then we saw it on grace. she looked absolutely stunning.

before the ceremony, jared, being a big time ny fan, got some good news. the yankees just finished putting a beat-down on the red sox. everything was going his way (except his tie).

jared and all his groomsmen gathered on the dance floor to settle a bet they made ten years ago. at the time, they all wrote down each other’s names and the order in which each of them would get married.

although the hand written note on the bottom right corner of his page was convincing, tim did not win.
