Hi there! Welcome to the online home of Laura Tavarez Photography. I specialize in Wedding & Family Photography thru out California.

Michael & Lydia

Oct 7, 2022

Whitney’s Wild Oak Ranch | Exeter, California

Michael & Lydia met at The Cellar Door in downtown Visalia in 2016. Michael was searching for Pokémon Go 😂 and Lydia was with friends dancing. Since their first date they have been together ever since! These two are adorable together! I LOVE when couples celebrate each others likes and bring what’s special to them into their wedding.

All day long Michael and Lydia had surprises to each other and to their guests. So fun to see people reactions and the joy it brought! Oh I need to mention the people!! Standing room only during the ceremony! It was so neat to see all of Lydia and Michael friends and family come out to celebrate this amazing couple.

Lydia surprised Micheal with a special pin with a picture of dad so his father would still be with him on this special day. These two love baseball so of course there need to be a custom bobbleheads cake top! So precious! They also had a special Day of the Dead Memorial Table with so many little details for their loved ones. One can’t forget the surprise Beer Donkey!!! lol

One of the biggest surprises was the entrance into their Wedding Reception. Lydia surprised Michael with his very own heavy weight belt and Macho Man costume. So fun to see everyone giggling! A few more fun surprises was singing for your dinner, magical smoke for their first dance, and BULL RIDING!!! 😂 SO Awesome!!! Reception was popping with dancing, laughter, bull riding, photo booth, singing, and over all so so much joy.
