It was a typical Southern California day on the coast,
the slight overcast morning gave way to bright sunshine as they boarded the ferry. Sea breezes misted over them as Heather took Gabriels hand, they stood on the deck on the lookout for dolphins and whales as they sped towards Catalina Island… and a new beginning.
The two first met at a place they frequented often, work. A local theatre in Long Beach to be exact. From acquaintances and co-workers, to friends then lovers, these two have a chemistry that is undeniable. They share a love for the outdoors and getting lost in a good book. Gabriel is thoughtful, charming, and fun, he will have you laughing in a minute, and Heather is beautiful and passionate, unafraid of the hard work that makes the world a better place. Together they make the perfect team.
In celebration of their anniversary and true to form, Gabriel planned a romantic getaway filled with kayaking, snorkeling in aqua blue waters, and a stay at the island resort. Heather was excited for this adventure but little did she know of the surprises in store!
Their weekend on beautiful Catalina Island turned out better than either had hoped.
Together they basked in the sun’s rays and enjoyed the outdoors and the company. After 6 years together, a son to love, and a home to build, Gabriel couldn’t have chosen a more perfect time or place to propose to his beautiful fiancé.
Heather and Gabriel chose to have their engagements done at a place that is held near and dear in each of their hearts. A place that brings back special childhood memories. The tide pools. Together we spent the afternoon exploring the coast, wading in water with sand in our toes…. and laughing together way more than usual!
Heather & Gabe,
THANK YOU! Thank you for inviting me along this journey with you! I had an amazing time with you both and cannot wait for your wedding next spring!
Love & Appreciation, ~M
They were friends of friends.
Which landed them at the same location on Brady’s birthday. Throughout the day Betsy and Brady exchanged friendly smiles, but nothing more. Perhaps it was because she had a timid personality and was working up the courage to approach the birthday boy. On the other hand, Brady wasn’t going to let anything stop him from meeting the cute blonde that caught his gaze all afternoon.
Their wedding day began as a crisp fall morning at Vee Bar Ranch in Laramie.
The wind gently shook the autumn leaves over a river that wound through the cabins on the property. In one, Greg adjusted on his tie and handed out vests and laughs to his mates. Next door, Meagan stepped into her dress. ‘Aaahs’ and applause erupted as she turned to show her best girls her final look. Further up the stream family gathered on an island in the crisp September air and kept warm with hot cider.
School brought them both to Wyoming but love has kept them here.
After crossing paths on campus at the University of Wyoming they became casual friends. After a 14-hour car ride together, they took turns navigating and driving, all the while talking, laughing, listening to music, and stealing glances across the car…. They soon realized that there was something special about the person sitting next to them and in short order, Shane and Claudia started dating. Two adventurous souls that were a perfect pair. Together they embarked on countless road trips to visit family, exploring, and attending their favorite concerts, satisfying their love for good food along the way.
It was one of those life changing moments.
They were each a little unsure about their blind date, it was set up by mutual friends but they each agreed anyways. Upon meeting, Megan and Tyson hit it off and soon they became inseparable. Little did they know, 4 years later they would be getting married.
It was a warm summer day with the sweet smell of blooming flowers lingering in the air.
Bridesmaids chatted while they helped their bride put on the final touches for her big day. The girls toasted champagne and turned up their music while the boys played a few games of pool and enjoyed each other’s company.
