Christian & Bree // Mermaid inspired engagement in Malibu

It all started January 9, 2019, when we matched on a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel. As two old-fashioned individuals, we never imagined we would meet our future spouse this way, but God had other plans! We met for lunch on a Saturday, and had a great time chatting with each other. We both felt there was something special, and we’ll never forget the first words out of Bree’s mouth: “I’m so glad you look like your picture.” From then on, God continually grew us closer together and blessed our friendship. After 4 months of dating, praying, laughing and learning, we felt God leading us to take the next step of pursuing marriage.

On March 13, 2020, I got down on one knee at our favorite place, Disneyland, and asked the best question I could ever ask my girl: “Will you marry me?” Our engagement was the biggest step in our journey so far and easily the most incredible. God has given us such a deep, Christ-like love for each other, and we long to glorify Him by faithfully choosing to love each other for the rest of our lives. With Jesus being our first love, we consider ourselves beyond blessed for the gift of marrying the second love of our lives. 

The closer we get to saying “I do”, the more surreal it becomes. To say we’re excited to marry our best friend is a flagrant understatement. As the groom, the moment I am looking forward to the most is seeing my beautiful bride, Bree, in her dress for the first time as she walks down the aisle. As the bride, the moment I have daydreamed about the most is watching Christian’s face when he looks at me for the first time in my wedding dress. We both long to hear the words, “I now pronounce you man and wife.” The most wondrous anticipation of all is the joyous privilege of honoring, serving, and loving each other for the rest of our lives.
