Brian and I met at a wedding in the summer of 2004. It was a super awkward first meeting in the buffet line and we only had a quick hello before we fled out of nervousness. We spoke again towards the end of the night and I quickly realized how much we had in common and how easy it was to talk to him. However, I felt a very strong friend vibe and wasn’t interested in him at the time. I ended up giving him my phone number when he asked and we went out 2 weeks later. It was a simple dinner and walk around 3rd St Promenade, but it was the best date of my life – I didn’t want it to end! I was instantly in love with him. I went to my parents house that night and told them I had met the man I was going to marry. We’ve been together ever since and every day we find another reason to fall in love with each other.
I was obsessive when it came to finding our wedding photographer. I knew I wanted someone who had photographed our venue, was kind, easy, fun to work with, of course brilliant at their job, and somewhat easy on the budget. After researching and meeting with many photographers, Brian and I met with Aaron at True and walked out knowing they were the right match for us. We loved everything about them – easy to work with, friendly, approachable, extremely talented and cared a lot about what we wanted. I am so lucky we got them!!
I was really excited for the shoot and Brian was really nervous. Neither of us had really been in front of the camera before, so we had no idea what to expect. Instantly, Mike calmed our fears and we started having so much fun. Half way through the shoot, we forgot the camera was even there! Mike made us feel great and we can’t wait to see him again at the wedding!
Having the football in some of the pictures is one of my favorite things. Brian loves sports and especially Green Bay Packers football. We had all of our friends sign a football before the session with messages to us. The main one you see written is “All You Need is Love” which is written by my partner in a new event planning company we have started this year because of our love of weddings.
We will be getting married in September at the Estancia Hotel and Spa in La Jolla.
