Elisa & Mike | Bella Sera Trattoria Wedding in Monrovia
Elisa and Mike got married at a beautiful church in Monrovia, the sky was clear and love was everywhere. Previously in their engagement session post I mentioned that Elisa and I went to high school together, so after all these years seeing how happy Elisa is, I was ecstatic. Pawel and I couldn't wait for their wedding day, we knew how much fun it would be watching these two commit their lives to each other. We met up with Elisa in her hotel for some getting ready photos and the vibe in the room was awesome, so may giggles and happy smiles. We headed off to the church for the ceremony. The Immaculate Conception Church in Monrovia is so quaint and very pretty which is exactly how their ceremony was. Once Elisa and Mike said their vows and shared their first kiss we got to spend some time walking around the church for their formal photos. With their portraits done we headed to Bella Sera Trattoria. The reception was wonderful, the patio was decorated with beautiful up-lighting and simple flower arrangements on the tables. The toasts were a riot, everyone was at the top of their game with heart felt, funny speeches, but it was what Mike did at the end of the night that had everyone in tears. Mike got on one knee and gave his new step daughter a ring as his promise to her. It was incredible. He also honored his new step son by giving him a very classy watch. The night was a blast and Pawel and I had so much fun. So I end with a quick personal note…Elisa and Mike, I am so very happy you two found each other, I see how in love you both are and it makes my heart happy. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
