THE PUBLISHER'S LETTER

When we created and introduced the inaugural edition of Ceremony Magazine 13 years ago, we did so with two mantras in mind: weddings are visual, so photography is key; and collaborate with the highest quality vendors and the magazine will follow suit.

Those principles still reign true today. Ceremony Magazine has always been big on pictures and short on words, and it seems social media is emulating the same. With the likes of Pinterest and Instagram becoming the go-to social media sites, the whole world can now communicate in a language that has no barriers: pictures. Now more than ever, it’s the perfect complementary platform to view the best-of-the-best of Ceremony’s thousands of timeless inspirational wedding and photo shoot images. We hope you will follow us and find inspiration for your own wedding.

While we revel in the limitless amount of ideas we can digitally find, we know that the most beautiful image is no substitute for finding quality vendors who can execute your vision. That is why we indulge in the pure Wedding IngenuityTM from Ceremony’s own family of wedding professionals that are right here in the San Francisco Bay area. This Great List of wedding vendors contains not only many of the best in The Bay Area, but also some of the finest in the country. It is their work that makes up a large part of this magazine, including 38 real weddings in this issue alone. Throughout the entire magazine, their web addresses are listed alongside their work as a helpful tool when you are flipping through Ceremony Magazine online. We are excited for what we know you are about to experience: meeting, collaborating with and perhaps even befriending some of the most creatively talented people you will ever know.

As you travel along your wedding planning journey, preparing for life’s wondrous path of marriage and love, we encourage

Congratulations! Amy Harrick Publisher & Editor-in-Chief aharrick@ceremonymagazine.com

RHEE BEVERE PHOTOGRAPHY

Joy has a diverse career in photography with a true passion for wedding photography. She captures photojournalistic moments as well as creative and fashion-inspired images that will thrill even the most discerning couples. Joy has been the recipient of many awards and accolades for her photography, her fashion work is featured in national publications and is recognized by top wedding dress designers. Whether photographing fashion models or real-life couples, she always puts her heart and soul into capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Making memories last a lifetime is what drives Mark and Tammy Toung to create their beautiful art together. With photography backgrounds in landscape, food and people pictorials, this husband and wife team found their calling as soon as they married their soul mate. Realizing how momentous a wedding can be inspired them to become “storytellers of love” and share this passion with each couple they photograph. Mémoire Studio mixes a contemporary portraiture style with a photojournalistic approach, making sure to artistically capture your day as it naturally unfolds. Mark & Tammy specialize in wedding, engagement and boudoir, as well as family photography since the star of the studio is their daughter, Maddy.

Rhee has had a camera in her hand since her dad gave her his manual Pentax when she was in 6th grade. She loves to capture everyday things a bride and groom might miss. A quick kiss, a quirky item left on the gift table, an unusual angle. Unscripted moments are everything! For her, the story you get in a brief instant counts as much as the whole day. Capturing emotions are what she loves the most. Her approach is “as I see it” – she waits until that brief second when her bride and groom are completely in tune with each other and forget she's there. Those are the moments you’ll treasure and the ones she works hardest to get. She feeds off the happy, positive energy of a wedding and delight in capturing it forever through images.

He loves what he does and is very grateful that he is able to do this as a living. Vicens enjoys capturing laughter, tears and cake cutting in real life settings. He delights in seizing fleeting instants of people’s lives and bringing them to life as enduring memories through his lens. With humor, he endeavors to make you feel comfortable so that you enjoy the experience and forget that he is even there, while he crawls, hangs, climbs and wiggles to find that special moment in time. Then he takes his camera and stirs in a bit of beauty, a pinch of harmony, and a hint of emotion and brings it all to a boil. Once it cools off, he throws in a sprinkle of technical expertise and a dash of his secret ingredient hoping to deliver something that will warm your heart for years to come.He specializes in weddings, engagements, elopements, wine country events and more, covering the Bay Area and destination weddings worldwide.

NAUTILUS LENS PHOTOGRAPHY

LUCY XYZ PHOTOGRAPHY

Nautilus Lens is a husband and wife photography team with over a decade of experience based in Oakland, California. The inspiration for their photos pulls from a wide range of our experiences in fine art, theater, and journalism. They fell in love while shooting together and even took as many of their own wedding photos as we could!

Lucie XYZ is a husband and wife photography team (Lucie & Sam) located in Oahu, Hawaii and serving Hawaii and California, specializing in wedding and family photography. Our style is a mix of photojournalistic, modern and fashion with a twist of traditional. We are creative in that we love to be thrown into new environments that challenge us to come up with new compositions. Traveling for destination events is no stranger to our cameras. We love exploring to get a great experience with our photographs. We want our shots to be real and all about who you are. It is our passion to deliver a great product, put a smile on your face, and most importantly make "Music for your eyes..."

Their styles are a blend of modern editorial looks with a photojournalistic eye and striking fine art compositions. They shoot in the way that seems most appropriate for the moment and for you as a couple. They love to collaborate with you and pull inspiration from your love story. It’s important to them that their shots are technically superb and that they are emotionally invested in the events of the day. They want to make sure that the first look, your parents’ pride, and that sweet dance move are caught right in the moment. Ultimately their inspiration is you. After shooting hundreds of weddings they can say with certainty that every event is a one of a kind experience and a new and beautiful adventure. NAUTILUSLENS.COM

JOHN BOSLEY PHOTOGRAPHY John Bosley is a Colorado native, a craft beer lover, an antique enthusiast and a photographer. He married his high school sweetheart and thinks that spending a lifetime with your best friend is the true definition of happiness. He has been photographing weddings since 2010. The first wedding he ever photographed was done as a favor for a friend and he has been hooked ever since. He still tremendously enjoy photographing love, happiness and pure emotion (especially when they’re wrapped up in beautiful light). John is a laid back guy and that pretty much sums up his shooting style. Don’t mistake that for lazy. He's hustling all day to get the shots. He just doesn't let things ruffle his feathers on your wedding day. JOHNBOSLEYPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

720.938.4689

BOGDAN CONDOR PHOTOGRAPHY Bogdan Condor is a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Bay Area, California. First of all, his work is not about Photoshop manipulation. His images are not defined by some fading trend. He brings an expert's understanding of lighting and composition to his work, and one of his qualities is putting his subjects at ease in front of the camera. Bogdan likes to keep his photography as close to reality as possible. His goal is to capture the essence of who you are by capturing your day naturally, without trying to attempt to pose you into someone who he thinks you should be. As a wedding photographer today, he does his best to manipulate the scene as little as possible. He may help the light along in a given situation, but he still prefers to allow things to occur organically. He thinks brides prefer it that way as well. The energy he gives for each and every event is spent on anticipating, and reacting to real moments in time. He'd rather wait for the moment, than to make the moment. Bogdan's clients are connected by a love of great photography and an understanding of its importance in their lives.

great list

The words that best describe his images are light, texture, dimension, mood, composition, anticipation, passion, emotion, energy and romance. He is looking forward to hear about your plans! BOGDANCONDOR.COM 209.595.0215

THE PERFECT ONE

how do you know?

How do you know…he’s the one? You may have been asked this question by your parents, your friends, even yourself. The answer isn’t always perfectly clear; he may or may not be ‘ideal’ on paper; you may have known him for only two months or perhaps you’ve been hanging in there a good five years; he may be a cowboy while you were visualizing a business man. The so-called ‘signs’ aren’t always there, but somehow, you just know. At Ceremony, we feel the same way about our Great List of wedding professionals that we recommend and invite to join our family of advertising partners. We take this vendor collective very seriously, which is why we don’t put arbitrary consideration requirements in an antiquated form. We don’t have a scholastic checklist to help us come up with an ‘A’ grade. We don’t even have a job application type form to fill out. You see, when it comes to choosing our Great List of recommended professionals, we believe there is no specific formula for choosing who we invite to join our family. Probably not unlike you, we take a look-see at Facebook, we inquire with their friends and colleagues and, most importantly, we get to know them by social networking the old-fashioned way (in person). In the end, we go with our gut. We just…know. You will find that some of these recommended vendors have refined their businesses over the past twenty years, while others bring fresh ideas after having recently started their own businesses. Many of our recommended venues are on the AAA Five-Diamond Resort list; others include charming private estates and everything in between. Additionally, the esteemed planners on the following pages each approach weddings in their own unique way, and we have interviewed each of them in order to give you an up close and personal look at their backgrounds, their ideas, and their wedding ingenuity. We hope that you will find this varied Great List vendor collective to be helpful in finding your wedding day professionals. There is no single vendor that is perfect for everyone, but there are vendors that are perfect for you. And when you meet them, you will just know.

Incorporating some form of entertainment or artistic performance will add visual appeal and uniqueness to your celebration.

Lots of couples are opting to spend the money that would be for favors on the overall guest experience.

GRAND IDEAS from top california wedding planners & designers VIDEOGRAPHY

PHOTOGRAPHY

The day you have been meticulously planning for months flies by in what feels like seconds. A video captures every detail you’ve planned, people’s expressions, your vows, and so many other things behind the scenes. You’ve invested so much money on one day, so don’t you want to watch and relive your love story? In years to come, you will cherish seeing and hearing your relatives and friends and be able to go back to a place and time where it all began.

It is so important to have good chemistry with your photographer. This connection helps the photographer capture genuine images and moments. DESPINA CRAIG EVENTS

AMAZÁE EVENTS

ANAÏS EVENT PLANNING & DESIGN

A DAY LIKE NO OTHER

Crystal was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and grew up in the Bay Area. She graduated from Santa Clara University with a bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. When she realized her love for planning events and passion for design, she took her business savvy and management skills to create Amazae Special Events in 2005. Amazáe’s top priority is to fulfill the clients’ desires.

Amrit has been creating art in one form or another since age five (doodling instead of eating at the dinner table, much to her family’s dismay). With advanced degrees in Graphic Design and Business Management, She has been able to pair her organizational skills with an artistic background, love for travel, creativity and passion for design to develop unique solutions that are a perfect fit for her clients!

Crystal makes this happen by understanding clients’ event vision, learning about their values and personality, and designing an event that is one-of-a-kind. “Seeing clients smile because we’ve turned their vision to reality is the best part of my job,”expressed Crystal. “I am thrilled when clients can’t stop talking about the event we created together.”

I love weddings because: I love love. It's an incredible gift to play a small role in someone's big day.

Jutta, born and raised in Germany, is a physician by training and worked in her own office until relocating to San Francisco with her family. She decided against going back to medical school and starting over, but instead followed her second passion: design! Jutta lives on the SF Peninsula with her husband, and when she is not designing weddings, you’ll find her outdoors, walking her beloved dog, or in the kitchen, whipping up a meal or baking a cake for her family, all the while listening to classical music.

Crystal collaborates with her team and brings in top-notch event industry vendors to ensure that all events are flawless. When she is away from work, Crystal loves spending time with her two beautiful daughters and her husband, dances, and plans to visit all of the continents. My design aesthetic: Detailed, lots of attention to use of space for both functional and dreamy things, and always something different that incorporates our couples. My favorite part of a wedding is: The walk down the aisle. The most adventurous thing I’ve done: Backpacked 3 weeks going from hostel to hostel in France and Italy. A design element I never tire of: A tabletop. AMAZAE.COM 650.489.0507

My favorite place to shop: Anthropologie.

My design philosophy: Simple, streamlined elegance with personal touches.

If money were no object, i would: Travel and see every corner of the world.

A favorite wedding that i have planned: My own son's. I went over budget within a week.

I believe: In good manners and respect.

3 Words that describe my style: Modern, elegant and glamorous.

Something most people don't know about me: I'm a stickler for grammar. My favorite staycation: Home. Deserted island, three objects, go: My husband, a cozy comforter, a plane nearby. The most important thing to me: Loyalty. My favorite vacation: India. Anytime, everytime. The most important thing to me: My family. My favorite drink: Champagne. ANAISEVENTS.COM 415.894.9254

I find inspiration in: Art history, interior design, nature and classical music. I love weddings because: They make people happy! And they allow me to crystallize vague ideas into a complete design and atmosphere. A year's work for a half day of perfection. My favorite place to shop: Gucci, Tiffany's and Bulgari. The best day of my life was: The day my son was born. If money were no object, I would: Retire to Bora Bora. My biggest pet peeve: People's rudeness. My favorite drink: Rose champagne.

“I still have not come down from Cloud 9… You were our fairy godmother, somehow making things happen by magic. You saved us thousands of dollars…Initially, I was the one who was reluctant to spend the money on a wedding planner. Knowing what I know now, I would sacrifice many things before I would give up your services. I cannot rave enough about your upbeat attitude, personal service and attention to detail. You functioned as our advisor, set designer, financial consultant, cheerleader, and best of all a friend… We can’t thank you enough!” —Ellen W., Mother-of-the-Bride

“We cannot thank you enough for pulling off our dream wedding and exceeding all expectations. When the band we wanted most already had four parties on their waiting list, you got us to the top of their list...You secured the perfect outdoor venue that had never been used for weddings and even got the price lowered. On the day of the wedding, you were prepared for any emergency; you even managed to remove the pollen stain from my dress. We felt so taken care of. After the wedding, it was very hard to get use to being without you! We are still smiling!” —Yael & Bryan

CULINARY CRAFTSMANSHIP TUNA CUTTING CEREMONY WITH MICHI CATERING

RHEE BEVERE

MICHILIFE.COM

Culinary craftsmanship and wedding celebration collide in the form of the tuna cutting ceremony. Michi Catering, a family business run by a father and his two sons, is one of the only caterers in the Bay Area that can still perform this tuna cutting ceremony and break down every bit of the whole tuna. With this art diminishing in the commercialized fishing industry, Michi Catering is keeping this tradition alive and well. In keeping with their standard of excellence, Michi flies in their tuna from the Tsukiji Market in Japan. This market is the standard when it comes to exceptional tuna, and fish from Tsukiji are in high demand. Michi selects the size of the tuna based on the event’s guest count, but the tuna typically range from 200 pounds to 600 pounds. As with the conventional cake cutting ceremony, the bride and groom are often invited to make the first slice. This cut serves as a symbol of their first married act of work. Then, once the fish is ceremoniously and expertly cut by a Michi chef, the guests get to enjoy the fresh fish and continue their celebration of the newlyweds!

BEAUTY & THE BALANCE AT TABACÓN GRAND SPA RESORT, COSTA RICA TABACON.COM/EVENTS-WEDDINGS BY ANDREA BERNING

Balance. It’s what everyone desires. The modern couple looking for a once-in-a-lifetime destination wedding or honeymoon getaway can find that perfect blend of adventure and relaxation at Tabacón Resort. Located in the heart of Costa Rica at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Tabacón offers ample opportunities for adventure including rainforest zip-lining, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, nighttime rainforest hikes and waterfall excursions. Their 5-Star accommodations paired with natural thermal springs, exquisite dining and luxurious spa services then allow a couple to unwind in style from a day of thrilling activities. Set within the confines of the rainforest Tabacón Resort is in close proximity to adventure for all levels of thrill seekers. Nature lovers cannot miss taking part in activities that showcase the natural wonder of this gorgeous country. A daytime horseback ride meandering through the foothills surrounding the volcano is a must-do. The views of the volcano and the lush scenery are utterly breathtaking. However, a night hike may provide even better opportunities to spot nocturnal mammals that are often elusive during the day. Armed with a flashlight and ample determination, night time is the right time to spot one of Costa Rica’s symbolic creatures such as a red-eyed tree frog or a sloth. A short ride outside of the resort gets you to La Fortuna where a majestic waterfall plummets to a clear pool of water that is ideal for swimming after a 500-step hike down a scenic path to reach it. Looking to take nature up a notch? Jacamar Naturalist Tours take guests on an adventure of a lifetime. Venture out to the top of the canopy for an exhilarating zip-line ride through the rainforest. Then, swing through the rainforest like Tarzan swing to get the full jungle experience. Get closer to nature by hitting the rapids on a whitewater raft tour down the Rio Toro and possibly witness tropical birds and exotic animals winding through the canyons. Days filled with adventure build up an appetite. Explore a local soda in La Fortuna for comidas típicas (authentic Costa Rican cuisine) or venture back to the gorgeous confines of Tabacón for a casual meal at their restaurant, Ave del Paraíso, for Tabacón’s delicious take on Costa Rica’s famous dish, casado típico criollo, which is the customary meal a wife would make for her husband. A more relaxing option would include donning swimwear and slipping up to the Arenal Pool Bar where small bites such as ceviche and guacamole pair well a libation made from Costa Rica’s signature sugar cane alcohol, guaro. Ah, pura vida! Relaxation is what brings Tabacón Resort its renown. Arenal Volcano’s natural thermal springs flow through the resort providing guests with a luxurious locale to warm weary muscles that have been worked from a day of energetic fun. Meander through the spring’s pathways to a literal Shangri-la. The Shangri-la Gardens are an exclusive experience for only Tabacón’s adult guests. Its privacy, replete with cascading falls and the steamy springs, sets the stage for romantic interludes. The thermal springs are within close proximity to the resort’s luxurious spa accommodations where Costa Rica’s natural environment is incorporated into each spa treatment. From the local products infused into the massage oils to the outdoor bungalows, couples can escape to even deeper tranquility. ‘The Idyllic’ is the quintessential couples massage bringing the soothing sounds of the rainforest into the ultimate bonding experience. Be sure to request to take a plunge in a relaxing milk bath following the massage. While basking in the outdoor tub, you may even spot an exotic monkey lurking above you in the natural canopy. Top off your dreamy experience with a Private Gala Dinner where your personal chef freshly prepares a gourmet feast in an open air rainforest bungalow lit by shimmering candles. Each course is paired with sumptuous wines and champagnes that bring out the flavors of each divine dish. A romantic meal is the ideal way to create a lifetime of memories from your luxurious experience at Tabacón. Whether you’re seeking the thrill of outdoor adventure or a relaxing retreat Tabacón provides the perfect balance.

The most special part of the wedding planning process for the couple was making many of the items for the wedding day. They created all of the signage, ceremony programs, table numbers, place cards and other extras that helped make the day uniquely theirs.

Laura and Scott got engaged over a long Thanksgiving weekend while in Alaska. They were pulled over on the side of the road to take pictures of a beautiful Alaskan sunset when Scott surprised Laura by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him!

love note

Although Laura and Scott don’t like cake, they did want to make sure and have dessert at their wedding. They decided on a donut bar, complete with a special donut for the bride and groom that was over a foot long!

love story

Kristina and Gerry met while both of them were in Toronto for Kristina’s sister’s wedding in 2012. They clicked instantly and decided to pursue a long distance relationship.

love note

Gerry proposed to Kristina two days before her thirtieth birthday. Kristina had jokingly mentioned to Gerry that it would be cool to get engaged before she turned thirty, and Gerry made sure to do just that! Her ring was still being sized, so he created an origami ring out of a dollar and used that in his proposal.

Laura met Belall when there was a mishap in her internet and tv installation process. Belall (Billy) was the kind and gracious representative who fixed the whole situation (on New Year’s Eve, no less), and Laura’s friend urged her to invite the cute cable guy to their New Year’s party. Laura did, and the rest is history!

love note

Billy proposed to Laura on her birthday, following a day of pampering that included massages and a manicure and pedicure for Laura. He told Laura that they were eating dinner at a steakhouse, so she went home to get ready and then met Billy at his house. Billy concocted a story about his niece baking a cake for Laura and wanting to surprise her, so she entered the home with her eyes closed. Once Billy asked her to open her eyes, she was shocked to see her family and friends, and then Billy got down on one knee to propose!

To make the weekend even more joyous, they also were able to announce that they were having a baby girl!

love note

The wedding weekend started with a dinner onsite, and the wedding later took place in the lush gardens and lawn at the Chateau Noel on the property.

love story

Emily and Jim were longtime friends turned high school sweethearts. They don’t quite remember first meeting each other, but it was likely in the fifth grade. It wasn’t until they sat next to each other in Spanish class during their sophomore year of high school that they started to hang out more though. Jim kept getting them in trouble in class for making Emily laugh, but they didn’t start dating until their junior summer. After ten years of long distance that included undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs, Emily and Jim got engaged!

love note

Emily and Jim share a love of Yosemite, especially when blanketed in snow, so it was a natural choice for them to have their wedding at the famed Yosemite hotel.

They shared a bottle of Chardonnay, and then Heath got down on one knee!

Although Molly and Jeremy both work at Google and both went to Stanford, they didn’t meet each other until the algorithms at OkCupid.com matched them together!

love note

One day while out to dinner, Molly and Jeremy had a conversation like: "So, are we getting married?" Molly asked Jeremy if that counted as the official proposal, but he said no. He waited until the ring arrived in the mail to do the official proposal, which happened to be a few hours before Molly's five year college reunion. He taped roses to the walls and stairway leading up from the garage to the apartment. Inside, he had more roses on the table (which was covered with a tablecloth, which Molly had no idea he owned) and had Cincinnati chili cooking. Jeremy got down on one knee, and officially proposed!

Wendy and Jason met during their first week at UC Berkeley in 2005.

Although the plan worked, Wendy and Jason did not end up dating until they were out of college and serendipitously bumped into each other at a party.

Jason

After running late for dinner to be followed by a Jason Aldean concert with friends, Kristin’s friends decided to switch dinner plans to a restaurant closer to the concert venue. As they were heading out, Kristin locked eyes with Chris, who was there with a friend. Once in the parking lot, Kristin asked her friends if they had seen that guy and if she should go back and give him her number. Serendipitously, Chris came running out of the restaurant to get Kristin’s number! Their first date was four days later, and they have been inseparable ever since.

Kristin and Chris love to enjoy the outdoors together, whether it is hiking, walking to the Golden Gate Bridge or wine tasting in Nepal!

love story

Evan and Melisa first met through mutual friends in 2007, but they were both too shy to make a move. They were at a friend’s birthday party in 2009 at a dance club, and they finally revealed their mutual interest in each other!

love note

Evan wanted to surprise Melisa with the proposal, so on a Monday while Melisa was in a work meeting all day, Evan was busy preparing the apartment for the proposal. When Melisa came home, she found Evan on one knee surrounded by roses and candles and holding her dream ring. It became the perfect Monday!

love story

Melissa and Sevan dated for seven years before Sevan proposed to Melissa in Central Park. Sevan knew that Melissa had always dreamed of visiting New York, and specifically enjoying a cup of coffee in Central Park, so Sevan incorporated all those details into his proposal. He told Melissa they were going on a trip to Tahoe, but then surprised her by taking her to the San Francisco airport and then told her about their New York adventure. Sevan made Melissa’s dream come true as he proposed on a bridge in Central Park, complete with Melissa holding her cup of coffee.

love note

Melissa and Sevan’s favorite part of their wedding was the grand entrance into the reception. They were introduced from the top floor of the Bently Reserve, and it felt like a fairy tale for the couple.

love story

Sahar and Damoon met while both attending a concert by their favorite DJ. It was five months after that before they went on their first date, but Damoon made sure to make it extra special, and he continued to surprise and impress Sahar with every date!

love note

After a year and a half of dating long distance while Damoon was in Dubai for work, Sahar was anticipating a proposal. She figured their upcoming trip to London and Paris would be the perfect time, so before the plane took off, she called her dad and tried to find out if Damoon had asked for his blessing yet. Knowing Sahar as well as he did, Damoon knew to wait until after her plane was in the sky to call her dad and ask for her hand. Damoon met her in Europe, and after affixing their lock onto a bridge in Paris, Damoon led Sahar to a private spot and asked her to marry him.

love story

Jennifer and Caleb were dating long distance when they got engaged. Jennifer was in Phoenix, and Caleb flew in for a Sunday halfmarathon that he was running. When Jennifer arrived at work on Friday though, she found flowers at her desk and a note from Caleb that read: “Dress nice, don’t be late, and follow the red-petaled road.” A chauffer picked Jennifer up from her apartment and dropped her off at the Boulders Resort. She saw the path of rose petals and followed it up to a boulder called Promise Rock. Caleb proposed at the boulder, and Jennifer’s best friends jumped out from the area where they were secretly taking pictures! Later that evening, an engagement party was thrown for them!

love note

The couple’s favorite part of the wedding was Jennifer’s walk down the aisle towards Caleb’s waiting hands and when they met together for the first time at the altar, waiting to be wed.

Karen and Lukas got engaged while in Japan. They were jetlagged and adventuring at 5am while trying to figure out a Japanese map. They were in the mountains and were sure there was a lookout somewhere nearby. It was there, among the mountains, which they had to themselves that early in the morning, that they got engaged!

love note

The couple loved that their venue had cabins onsite for their guests so they could spend more time with everyone! They even had a cookout the night before the wedding.

Bryce claims to have had a crush on Haley all along, but it was not until the summer before their senior year that Haley started to reciprocate those feelings.

She told him about her dream to move to New York, and Bryce joined her in her adventure!

love note

Haley and Bryce took a moment during the reception to step outside and sit together under the stars. With all the business of their wedding day, the couple wanted to relish in a few quiet, joyous moments together as husband and wife.

love story

Jennifer and Nate decided to write down memories from their first year of dating and store them in a memory jar. They planned to open it at the end of the year, but the holidays got hectic and they didn’t get much time alone together. They decided to remedy that with a quick trip to Austin for the night and sat together in the hotel taking turns reading out the memoires they had shared and written down. After spending some time reminiscing, Nate handed Jennifer a card, and she was confused, thinking they were done with all the notes. The card said, “One more thing...” and Jennifer looked up to find Nate on bended knee, holding her ring.

love note

Although they like to tell people that they met at a conference, the couple actually met on Tinder. Jennifer thought he was really cute, and coworkers at a conference ditched Nate and he didn’t want to go to an after-party by himself. They hit it off, and their second date included homemade cookies by Nate, and their third date ended in a kiss.
