Erica and Mike met online, and on their second date is when Mike knew Erica was the one: for a guy who admits that he isn't much of a talker, he felt at extreme ease in conversation with her. Fast forward to a lovely day in May, perfect for a San Diego wedding, where lead photographer Megan and I photographed Erica and Mike wed at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook.

Before the ceremony, Erica surprised Mike with something more than just her wedding dress...

Erica surprised Mike with a bag full of gifts, including a heart felt card, a cupcake, bride and groom glasses, and a bottle of champagne that they popped immediately after their first look. Bubbly for the win!

These two say they are the ying to the other's yang, but they stood as one solid, so-in-love couple during their bride and groom portrait session.

Cheers! Their first glass of champagne as husband and wife! Stayed tuned for Part 2 of Erica and Mike's wedding on the blog tomorrow!
