Ace Hotel Mod Engagement 0001how he asked-torrance wedding-photography

FROM THE BRIDE // Stu and I met freshman year of high school. We were in the same group of friends for many years, but never thought about dating one another. Stu was in band and I was on the drill team. We saw each other often and even hung out in the same circles.  Though we were always in together, we never talked much. I felt he was shy and I was very outgoing, so I didn’t think we made a good match.  After high school we basically parted ways and hadn’t seen one another since.  

It wasn’t until over 10 years later that we reconnected.  About two years or so ago, I began to see him at some friends get togethers and parties. I suppose you would say that the “Stars Aligned”. It was the night of Stu’s holiday work party when everything went right. He called me and asked me to hang out with him.  Unfortunately, he was a little nervous to ask me to the actual party, but we hung out afterward and we have been together ever since. I know that he is the man of my dreams because I can be with him night and day and it never gets old. I can’t believe that we hit it off on that holiday night.  Two years after that beautiful holiday evening, he proposed in Redondo Beach. It was a private and romantic evening where we shared an exchange under the stars. I’m so glad to be marrying my best friend and I can’t wait for our wedding day!
