Monique and Emily’s Dance Party - Martin Johnson House Wedding

Emily and Monique wed on the picturesque cliff at the Martin Johnson House. 

These two were married after 25 years of partnership ... so wonderful!

Monique and Emily met more than two decades ago when attending the University of California - San Diego. It was only fitting that they returned to La Jolla (they currently reside in Georgia) to marry one another at the Martin Johnson House on October 13, 2016.

This perfect evening (weather, food, ambience) was shared with many family and friends, including Monique and Emily’s two amazing kids who definitely got many of the guests dancing. Their ceremony and reception all took place at the Martin Johnson House, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Scripps Pier. It was a magical night.
