Vicki & Ryan, 10/05/07

Vicki and Ryan were married on a bright and sunny day at Del Mar's Powerhouse Community Center. The views of the ocean were spectacular for the ceremony.

The bride & groom, along with many of their family & friends were from Phoenix. Others traveled all the way from the East Coast to celebrate their union. Vicki was full of emotion and energy before the ceremony and it was contagious!

I love these rocking chairs inside the reception hall.

So does Ryan's niece.

The bride makes her grand entrance with her nephew as dad waited at the bottom to walk her down the aisle.

A very happy newly married couple. Hooray!

After the ceremony, we headed down to the beach for some fun.

Vicki & the girls goofing around to try & stay warm. It was a bit chilly that day.

These two are such a cute couple, and I'm sure they've heard it before.

At the reception, Vicki's dad brought out a Polish tradition of bread, salt, and wine for the bride and groom. Bread, so that their children shall never go hungry. Salt, to remind them of life's struggles (but to hang in there!), and wine for a lifetime of good health and happiness.

Vicki's nephew also had a treat in store for everyone. He had practiced a dance routine for three months and entertained all the guests with his mad skills!

I think the skills run in the family because Vicki's mom was getting down on the dance floor too.

A good time was had by all...

and the night ended with a gorgeous sunset.

Congratulations you two!
