Liz and Joe’s Wedding at the Aquarium of the Pacific!

Liz and Joe were married on May 5, 2013!

This “out of the box” wedding suited their lovely, quirky personalities to a tee:)

Their wedding took place at The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach… Enjoy Victoria Grimsley and Justin Thatcher’s beautiful pictures!


I loved that Liz dyed her hair to match her wedding colors! I met Liz through the choir we both are members of, and I’ve always known her to have ever-changing hair colors:)

Liz and Joe’s ceremony, which took place in front of the fish tank, was filled with personal touches that rang true to their “out of the box” personalities…

They had their officiant Erin Schlabach incorporate some humorous moments like asking for the rings and gigantic metal rings being handed over by the best man…

They even referenced Battlestar Galactica at the end: “So say we all!”

Since it was Cinco de Mayo, Liz and Joe treated their guests to mini-cupcakes that were churro, dulce de leche, and chocolate-flavored… Mmmm!
