Light and Sal had their wedding on a beautiful day in Long Beach, at the CSULB Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. The garden allows you to hold your ceremony on a bridge! Can’t think of a more romantic spot to get married on. After the wedding, we headed over to a park that they frequent with their three doggies, one of which got to walk down the aisle. The day only got better and better as we hit our last stop, the Long Beach State baseball stadium: Blair Field, where he once played, and where he also proposed! He told us how the Long Beach State University’s baseball team got their nickname Dirtbags…how it refers to their gritty play and determination…how the LBSU team first started out with all new players without a home field. They’d practice at a local all-dirty pony field, covered in dirt, and win its first 18 games, advancing to their first College World Series appearance. The best part of the story is, Sal brought Light on their first date to this special place which he told her was his “Field of Dreams”… after Sal proposed to Light at a Long Beach State baseball game, he told her that she made one more dream come true at Blair Field.

This on my desk would keep me warm all winter long.
We were so excited to have the stadium all to ourselves!
I like this as an enlargement, hint + wink
Light was one of the most relaxed, kick-back brides I ever met. Everything was carefree. This was the one detail she did put her handprint on for her wedding day, and it was worth it:
His name is Cocoa. He is beloved. He presented the ring and got to strut the walk down the aisle.
A handsome look:
Sal’s natural happy face: (He had happiness written all over him all day.)
Sal said that he loves how Light is beautiful. Oh yea, and smart, funny, practical, and loves to cook. So awesome…I think I have one of those things: loves to cook. But here’s Light:
