Mel + Michael are so much fun. We rolled around on our bikes in their neighborhood near Temple Street on the wrong side of the 101. They danced ballroom style on the top of their hill while some dudes tossed around a football. One of their ideas was to get married inside the historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater but their dreams were shattered (just a little) when they realized the capacity is about 65 and their wedding party will be 120+. They quickly recovered and we took some pictures there instead. To accommodate their party size they chose Orcutt Ranch for their October 2013 ceremony.
