Catholic Wedding + Fortino Winery Reception in Gilroy: Ashley + Stephen

 

How They Met

Stephen and Ashley met like so many people these days online.  Here’s where most ask as it’s clearly a good app since they got married.  They met on the dating app Bumble.

Life is sure funny!! They may have met officially on Bumble but their paths crossed multiple times during their life from the hospital where they were both born to schools, and so much more.  Clearly, they were “meant to be”

How They Got Engaged

Stephen proposed to Ashley at their favorite and most special location.  Can you guess?  YES!! Outside Ladera Grill in Morgan Hill where they had our second date and shared their first kiss.

Their Most Favorite Date?

Their most favorite date was their second one.  They went to Ladera Grill in Morgan Hill and shared their first kiss.  This restaurant has some amazing memories for them.

What Three Things They Most Love To Do Together

  • Go to wineries, breweries, or restaurants
  • Watch movies
  • Go to country concerts

Intimate Hollister Backyard Wedding in Front of the Family Tree | Monelle + Joshua. My favorite memory was the absolute love of their family and close friends melted my heart.  I have never known two families to so quickly become one family so fast.  Every ounce of their intimate backyard wedding was special and meaningful, made with love of friends and family. Also, Monelle actually made her own cake.  It was beautiful and tasted even better!

Redwood Ridge Estate Wedding in Los Gatos | Lauren and David

Redwood Ridge Estate Wedding in Los Gatos | Lauren and David

Happy Anniversary Lauren and David!  Today we take a look back at David and Lauren’s wedding! I tend to get brides and grooms that have been in love since high school.  Lauren and David are even more special as they have been going to the same school since they were in middle school. Their real crush started in their junior year of high.  One night at the top of a hill while watching all of the beautiful lights pass them, David asked if Lauren wanted to be his girl, and with a little happy yes, they’ve been together ever since.
