Black Tie Affair in Downtown Ventura from Jennifer Lourie Photography

Ronny and Lisa met over their love of soccer, and it was Ronny's love of soccer that made Lisa truly fall in love with him; "I knew there was something more when I first saw him coaching his little girl's soccer team. He cared so much for these young girl's success on and off the field, it was inspiring and fantastic to see him give so much of himself." The only thing missing from their special day together was their dog Nikey, Nikey has always been a monumental part of their relationship, even assisting in the proposal. "Ronny sent our dog Nikey up the stairs and into bed with me. He had on a red bow tie with my ring cleverly intertwined into the ribbon. So confused at first, I found the beautiful Diamond Ring, and then Ronny proposed. I was beyond surprised. It was the sweetest moment with my two favorite "guys". When sculpting their wedding, Lisa wanted to make sure to include her family as much as possible. "My parents and I are very close, this is a special day for not only me but for them as well." Lisa got ready at her mom's house, and wanted her to be the one who got her into her dress. Overall, Lisa and Ronny wanted a wedding that brought their love of black tie and their love of their friends and family together. "I am looking forward to having all my friends and family being together in one place having a great time together." -Jennifer Lourie Photography
