This past weekend we had the awesome opportunity to capture Michael and Michele’s Park Avenue Restaurant wedding here in Orange County. For many of us, we’ve had that girl or guy in our neighborhood growing up that we always just seemed to get along with. Who knows, they may have even been your first crush. Though for most it never turns into anything. Often times life will pull you both in different directions and that friend that you once saw every day has now become someone that occasionally pops up on your Facebook news feed. Unlike most people, Michele and Michael remained friends over the years and life did bring forth different opportunities over the years but these two were meant to be more than friends. As they continued their casual friendship, Michael realized that Michele had stolen his heart. He finally took the fearful step that many guys fear to do with their female friends, he asked her out on a date!
It wasn’t long after that date that Michael too had stolen Michele’s heart. Michele has always been thankful to have Michael around and has been blessed to see how Michael has treated her family as his own and it was his kind, caring nature among other things that won her over. These two thieves stole each other’s hearts and so it was only fitting that for a Halloween party Michele would dress like an inmate and Michael, of course, would dress like a prison guard. Michael just had to seize the opportunity with having all their friends and family in attendance, Michael asked his longtime friend and his love to marry him. Which is what brought us to this special day. As an Orange County wedding photographer we often stay busy shooting weddings but I truly have to say everyone’s love story is different and with Michael and Michele I just have to say I’m so glad it all finally came together! These two were radiating with joy and we are so glad we got to be there! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Cades for allowing us to be a part of your Park Avenue Restaurant wedding! Here are just a few of the great moments captured from the day!
