Real Weddings | Santa Barbara, CA

Mike and Serene met at a party. So they met at a party, what’s the big deal? It’s a sign that the rest of their lives would be one big party. Between Serene’s one-of-a-kind beauty and Mike’s sharp sense of humor, these two could open up their own show and take it on the road. And to top it off, they double-party every June 3 because it’s their birthday. Yes. Their. They even have the same birthday. B’shert? We think so!

Despite their fun-loving nature, Mike and Serene appreciate family, tradition, and keeping loved ones close. Their wedding chuppah was topped with a tallit from Mike’s great-grandfather. He also used his grandfather’s tallit during the ceremony. They reserved a seat at the ceremony by placing a picture of Serene’s beloved kitty, Pono, on a chair in the first row. Most pet owners will understand that Pono is their “child,” and it was as close as they could get to having Pono witness their nuptials! We’re sure Pono thinks the Santa Barbara wedding of Mike and Serene was the cat’s meow!

Mazel tov, Serene and Mike!
