Samantha and Steven met in Iraq. She was doing important military intelligence things, and he was training firefighters. He was drawn to her right away, so he decided to ask her the second most important question he would ever ask her...
Want to drive my fire truck?
I say it all the time, because it's so true: our favorite thing about our job is that we have new friends when the wedding is over. But with Kristi and Matt, we ended up with new friends before the wedding! We got along so well with them right away. And when they pulled out three bottles of flavored tequila after their engagement session and invited us to stay for cocktails, we sealed our friendship right then and there! Since that day, we have shared more cocktails, and even more laughs. We looked forward to their wedding not only as photographers, but as friends! We're so thrilled to be sharing this one today!
When I first spoke with Myesha on the phone, she asked me if I had ever seen Sex and the City. Right then I knew that we could be bffs! As we talked about our love of Carrie Bradshaw, New York city, and Mr. Big, we fell into an easy rhythm that usually comes with years of friendship. And yet I had never met her! I'm always blown away by how lucky we are to meet so many amazing people while doing what we do. Especially when there's a pair of Manolos involved!
Criston said over and over that the only thing that mattered on her wedding day was that she married Garrett. She didn't want a big production. She wanted a quiet, classy day with her new husband, her family, and a few close friends. She wanted a celebration of love and for her son to be welcomed into their new family. Garrett wanted the same.
