This real wedding will have you dreaming of vacation! Heather & Michael (better known as “Mo”) met while they were both undergrad students at USC. The two ended up in the same box together at a Dodger game! Mo, who was a Junior at the time, couldn’t keep his eyes off the Freshman Song Leader and Pi Phi cutie, Heather, so of course he chatted up the brunette beauty during the game! After college, the two kept in touch between on and off periods of dating and living cross-country. After several years, Heather and Mo couldn’t resist the love they still felt for each other and after finally settling in the same place, Mo proposed unexpectedly during a Monday afternoon hike through Newport Coast.
Their destination wedding took place at the Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort in Mexico, where the couple celebrated all weekend long with 80 of their closest friends and family. A close friend of the groom’s officiated the intimate and personal ceremony, and the couple kicked off the reception with their first dance, which was choreographed to Tyrone Wells’ “Running Around In My Dreams.” The dance even included a twirling lift and a couple of dips! They kept the lessons a secret, so this performance was a surprise for all of their wedding guests, including their parents, who loved it!
I love sentimental touches of wedding days, and Heather included a few of those in her bridal wardrobe: affixed to her bouquet were her grandmother’s pearls and a locket with a picture of her grandma and grandpa and their sorority and fraternity pins from SDSU, where they met and started dating – in college – just like Heather and Mo. In addition, Heather, who works at ivivva athletica, lululemon’s line for active girls age 4-14 (she loves her some lulu!), so of course her “something blue” was uber-comfy luon and hidden somewhere under her gorgeous gown!
