Heather + John were married on February 20th at the Center Club in Costa Mesa. I loved the classic look of their wedding day and the venue just added to that. Justin and I showed up to the Hyatt in Huntington Beach to catch some pre-ceremony shots and the first thing I discovered when I walked into Heather's suite were the mounds of scattered yellow rose petals John had left for her earlier that morning. It was a fun detail that started the day off on the right foot.

I give you Mr. & Mrs. Stratman!

Good pictures. In the picture of the ceremony where you can see all the guests, on the left side there's a lady sitting down front row with a wine colored dress and she looks like Kathy Bates. Funny.
