Haley and Michael's wedding day began with a slight drizzle that led to a torrential downpour at about the time Haley was having her hair and makeup done. She was faced with the difficult decision of switching her anticipated outdoor beach wedding indoors. Hotel Laguna's coordinator had experienced this situation and was positive it would clear up in time for their ceremony. By the looks of the day, it felt otherwise. Sure enough, 15 minutes before the ceremony time, the chairs were put in place in the sand and Haley and Michael had their dream wedding on the beach. The day was very emotional for all involved that helped to make the day flawless. They incorporated Scottish wedding traditions with a bag piper leading the processional and drank from a Scottish Quaich or ‘Loving Cup’ which is filled with whiskey. The officiant had everyone laughing when he also sipped from the cup. Haley also wore an adorable Scottish garter that I captured as she was getting ready. Overall, it was a beautiful wedding enjoyed by all.
