Reunited and it feels so good….well that is what Paula + Mike McCloskey think! This special couple has a somewhat unique story. They actually worked together for nearly 8 years! Paula was hired to work for Mike at the now closed law firm, Baker & McKenzie. After 8 years of loyal service, though, Paula left to raise her daughter, and it wasn’t until years after that that the two reconnected at Paula’s Christmas party! They knew that if they connected after all that time and a wealth of life experience, then best not to mess with fate! 🙂
They were married in the old Navy barracks in the Liberty Station area of San Diego, Barracks 17 of the NTC Promenade, to be exact. The venue was the perfect backdrop for this established couple. The wedding colors consisted of greens and a rich purples/fuchsia, and even the bride, choosing to be more non-traditional, wore a pale green dress by Custom Made Design! Her hair and makeup were done by Beauty Carriage. She truly looked stunning!
Wedding coordinator and florist, Carmin Design, created the perfect ambiance. The details were simple, yet amazingly elegant and colorful. Catering was provided by Wild Thyme, and the dessert table, supplied by our beloved, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co., consisted of not just a wedding cake (and a football-shaped groom’s cake), but also cupcakes, bars, and bites, giving the 100+ guests plenty of delicious options!
Wedding photographer, Studio Carre’, captured some great images of Paula + Mike’s special day, and even with a quick glance at the images below, you’ll feel as warm and happy about this special couple as we do just to write about it!
