La Jolla, CA: Sharon and Greg: Engagement

I knew I would enjoy hanging with Sharon and Greg when early on in our conversations I found out how big of baseball fans they are. Immediately we had a connection that only true baseball fans have. So when they ventured all the way to the West Coast from D.C. I knew we would hit it off like we had know each other for some time.

In the short time we had together roaming the streets of La Jolla I could immediately see how perfect they are for each other. They compliment each other so well and it is written all over their faces how much they adore one another. Brianne and I are looking forward to their wedding next year as we will head north to San Francisco. We know it will be a blast and look forward to spending the day with such a great couple. Sharon and Greg... to entice you to come out to San Diego again, there will be a Padres game on me so we can continue our conversations about the greatest game out there.

Mt. Woodson: Lauren and Josh: Wedding

There is something about backyard weddings that I just love. I think it revolves around the fact that the ones I have been a part of have been a community of friends and family coming together to transform an ordinary backyard into a beautiful wedding site. It requires time, effort, creativity, and many DIY projects. Jennifer Pyle of 34 Events did an amazing job coordinating all the months of work Lauren poured into making her wedding something perfect for them. A wedding that was personalized with little details throughout that resembled Josh and Lauren's relationship and style. Since the first coffee date, Brianne and I had with them- we knew they were a unique couple in the way that they told their story. Their love was deep and revolved around the Lord. It is refreshing to meet with couples who see the big picture and aren't caught up in the "wedding" but are more focused on the marriage. Josh and Lauren it has been a blast getting to know you both and to see the ways you complete one another. Thank you Josh for serving our country. Thank you Lauren for supporting him in everything you do. Thank you both-for letting us play a small role in your big day. It was absolutely perfect.
