I think I ended the initial meeting with Travis and Salina by saying to them “we’re going to have fun together”. We laughed a LOT during that meeting, as they’re both fairly hilarious people. Salina, an attorney, and Travis, who works freelance in sports broadcasting, hired me to help them with their summer wedding at Rancho del Cielo in Malibu. Salina told me that their goal was to have a wedding that was “more fun than fancy” and so we kept that in mind as we planned. Rancho del Cielo is not a fancy place, but its beauty is breathtaking. When guests get off of the shuttle up from PCH they immediately pull out their cameras to take pictures of the 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean below. And that is before they’ve seen the rest of the gardens on the property. 
Salina and Travis were married on the overlook over the ocean in a touching non-denominational ceremony officiated by the wonderful Clint Hufft. Salina and Travis toasted their new marriage in some private time after the ceremony by opening the bottle of Johnny Walker Blue that they bought for their wedding day. At one point they were going to have the Johnny Blue in their Tiffany toasting flutes, but decided instead on a bottle of Dom Perignon. They danced and celebrated as late as the 10:00 PM Malibu curfew allowed, then continued their celebration at the Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey for their after party.
