The Elks at Bass Rocks is one of my all-time favorite wedding venues. Just look at that view!

Shayla was easily one of the most well-behaved kids I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and she was filled with so much joy throughout the day as she watched her parents get married.

Shayla and her mom met Mike on the rocks for a special “first look” before the ceremony.

One of Katie and Mike’s favorite moments from the day was seeing Shayla high five the groomsmen after walking down the aisle, which perfectly summed up how excited she was.

Bride/Groom Questions

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

Saying I do and having our daughter there to share it with us ?

What was your favorite detail?
The beautiful ocean

Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Stay calm. After the ceremony I was wondering why I had been so incredibly nervous. Take deep breaths and take it all in. During the ceremony every time i felt nervous, I would look out into the ocean and it would calm me.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Not a thing!
