Erik and Melanie have their first dance as husband wife at their Luce Loft wedding. 

Erik and Melanie are a couple I met through the my workout group November Project. We’ve spent many early mornings running hills and executing not so perfect burpees. We’ve raced alongside each other and event traveled to Salt Lake City to run the trails of the North Face Endurace Challenge.

So things were a bit changed up on their wedding day, October 8, 2016. It’s always fun celebrating with friends and friends of friends. This party took place at Luce Loft in downtown San Diego, a great venue for anyone looking to put on an event with an urban flavor.

In addition to DJ and MC service, I provided uplighting and pin spotting (highlighting the cake and a custom piece of artwork).
