Audrey and Michael’s Hacienda-Style Wedding

Audrey and Michael's Hacienda wedding

By Jordan Lemke

What began as a night of networking ended in a sweet surprise for then-law students Michael and Audrey. “We ended up next to each other at the end of the night and shared a strawberry shortcake for dessert,” recounts Audrey, who planned to interview for a summer associate position at Michael’s firm. She landed the gig and later the groom. Michael popped the question six years later on a moonlit beach in Anguilla.

The Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa’s hacienda style suited the couple’s vision for a modern boho wedding, while Audrey’s choice of cream florals and accents mixed with natural greenery created a lush backdrop. “We knew we wanted our wedding to be very ‘us’—relaxed, comfortable, and a lot of fun,” she says. The affair and bride were so beautiful, it made Michael cry—for the first time in 14 years! The cherry on top of the flawless day was Lucky Devils Band’s live ’90s hip-hop and R&B music. As Audrey says, “We danced the night away.”
