Show business seems to be in Lisa and Eric's blood. Eric and Lisa met while performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Eric played the Pharoah, and Lisa was a dancer in the play. THE BRIDE Lisa Kouchak, 35, choreographer and dancer THE GROOM Eric Martsolf, 33, television actor THE DATE October 10 Eric's best performance to date was the one he gave at his parent's house in Pennsylvania one Christmas. It was the first one Lisa was spending with his family, so it was bound to be a memorable one. After every gift was opened and everyone was headed off to bed, Eric pulled Lisa aside. I think you forgot to open one, he said as he pulled out a blue ring box, and proceeded to propose.

The cliff-side ceremony took place in front of Roman pillars that were draped with flowers and garland. Candelabra filled with more blossoms flanked the aisle and later served as centerpieces for the reception.
Since many of their 105 guests were traveling from far away, Lisa and Eric planned their wedding for a Friday night. We wanted them to have Saturday and Sunday to relax on the beach with us, says Lisa. We even sent our save-the-dates on bookmarks so that people would bring books with them to read on the beach.  But planning a beach wedding brings weather pressure: We were both a bit nervous because most of the morning was cloudy, says Eric. But just as the music started, the sun started creeping out and it was perfect.
The First Dance
Lisa wore a white corseted A-line gown by Maggie Sottero. The best part was the something blue -- my shoes, which were baby-blue, strappy heels with ribbons tied around the ankle! says Lisa.
