Emily and Fred wed in the spring in their hometown of Solvang, Calif., with green mountains and breathtaking landscape surrounding them. They chose a Spanish wedding theme because they both love the bold colors and associated history and held their ceremony at the old mission Santa Inez. / Photos by Lacie Hansen Photography.
We had a full Catholic ceremony with a mass, it was long. I always feel like short ceremonies are not realistic. Marriages are long and not always easy and therefore I feel a wedding ceremony when you’re committing your lives to each other should be longer than 10 minutes. We had a mariachi band to stick with the Spanish theme and they were amazing.”
Emily and Fred’s Love Story
He emailed me a humorous yet flattering e-mail on MySpace with all the reasons I should date him.
