Co is someone you can imagine being best friends with from the minute you talk with her…via email. i don’t know too many people that i feel that way about. we even share a love of words…like “stoked” and “plethora”. and she is always smiling….this big, genuine, “i’m gonna change the world with my smile” kind of smile. it’s no wonder Albert fell in love with her 🙂
Albert is a little quiet at first, but one of the sweetest most romantic guys i’ve ever met! he may look all tough when you meet him, with his athletic build and love of baseball caps, but i personally think he’s a giant teddy bear. in a good way, Al! 🙂 they met at a school event almost 10 years ago. he went to an all boy, private high school. and her friend went to an all girl, private high school. the two schools get together for dances and other events and Co’s friend invited her to this one in particular. and the rest, as they say, is history…
Co & Albert dated for 9 years before he popped the question, but i’m sure if you ask Co, she’ll tell you he was worth the wait 🙂 they had recently shopped for rings, but Albert wanted to keep her guessing as long as possible. he planned a dinner with their cousins in order to throw her off. when the cousins cancelled at the last minute, Co didn’t think anything of it. they enjoyed an amazing dinner at the beautiful Orange Hill Restaurant, where he asked her to be his wife. and she said yes 🙂
i had so much fun planning their engagement session with Co. she is one of the most creative people i know (you should see what she did when she asked her girls to be her bridesmaids)! she had so many wonderful ideas & brought all kinds of awesome props along. we met at Great Mex to grab a quick photo since it’s one of their favorite restaurants to eat at. then, we visited the Balboa Fun Zone & walked all around Balboa, before heading to the Wedge as the sun was setting. these two are SO in love, as you will see…it’s contagious 🙂 Stephen and i had a blast during their engagement session and couldn’t be more STOKED for their amazing wedding at Casino San Clemente next March!
i love all of their little lovey dovey things they do…so precious!
girl, you are gorgeous!
love these mugs…
just love these flowers…and these two really know how to work it!
