Turnip Rose Promenade Wedding Photographer – Costa Mesa

Turnip Rose Promenade Wedding Photographer – Jessica + Mike

Always great to be back at the Turnip Rose Promenade in Costa Mesa, CA. Jessica & Mike are the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet! Here are some of our favorite photos from their wedding day. Be sure to watch the slide show, too! 🙂

How did you guys meet?

My good friend Amy convinced me that I should give online dating a try. I was skeptical and she created a profile for me. Mike was the second person that I went out with. Our first date was in late April 2017 at Tantalum in Long Beach. Since our first date we’ve pretty much been inseparable and the rest is history!

How did he propose?

Mike spent 18 years in Philly and went to college there. A lot of his good friends are still there. Philly is a place that is important to him and he was excited to show me around and have me meet his friends. We went for a walk on the morning of Friday July 13th. I wanted to see the famous love sign. Then Mike told me he had one more place he wanted to show me which was Ritten House Square. It was there by a water fountain that Mike proposed.
