Mike and Ellen are champions against the odds.
Ever since they began dating six years ago, they have lived in separate cities – making long-distance the name of oh-so-challenging game. In the middle of it all, they faced the trials of Mike’s diagnosis with cancer, walking through the heartache, the treatment, and the eventual road to “cancer free” together.
But when you meet Mike and Ellen, they positively beam with gratitude. They don’t take a single second together for granted, and they never, ever sweat the small stuff!
Because after six years of back-and-forth weekend trips, long hours at the hospital, and all the ups and downs that come with both – Mike and Ellen know how precious each second together really is.
We’ve been looking forward to Mike and Ellen’s Coronado Community Center wedding ever since we met, but especially since our EPIC engagement session adventure with them! (Don’t know what we’re talking about?? You better click here to find out!!)
We love that Mike and Ellen included the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony – it was so important to them to honor both of their families and include them in all the most meaningful parts of the day!
Every moment of this day was full of family, beautiful pink details, and big-huge-SMILES! Seriously, have you seen the way these two smile when they’re with each other?
To the newlyweds: You two are giving us HUGE butterflies in our hearts as we relive this day! We are soooo incredibly excited for you as you embark on a life together – we cannot wait to see all the adventures that life takes you on!
