Lizzie and Jonny got married on a beautiful Summer afternoon on the USD campus, where Lizzie spent many hours over the course of their dating years working on her masters degree in education. This is important to their story because they met while Lizzie was teaching third grade at an elementary school in San Diego where Jonny was also working as the facilities manager. Lizzie needed a table for her class and after Jonny realized there wasn’t one available, he made one for her. That’s right. He made her a table! Needless to say, Lizzie was impressed and this was just the beginning of their journey together. At their wedding, they even had THE table he made when they met, and their guests all signed it. What an amazing idea.
Their wedding day was bright and sunny and was focused on family and fun. The flower girl and ring bearers brought so many smiles to the guests and some of Lizzie’s kindergarden students were even there to see their teacher get married! The reception was poolside at a beautiful private residence adorned with gorgeous flowers (Studio Fleurish), and the details were stunning, many handmade by Jonny and Lizzie. The delicious food and treats (Nachos Taco Shop, French Gourmet and Nothing Bundt Cakes) were enjoyed, many drinks were had, and guests danced from sundown through to the end of the night (thanks DJ Earl!). At the end of the night, Lizzie and Jonny surprised the DJ with a cake and sang happy birthday to him on the dance floor, since the wedding was on his birthday. That’s the kind of people these two are, which explains why they have so many great friends.
What an incredible start to a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations Lizzie and Jonny!
