From the Groom: Growing up in the small town of Gilroy, it is not hard for your paths to repeatedly cross. We both went to the same elementary school and high school, but ironically did not meet until we left Gilroy. Our paths crossed once again in the hallways at San Jose State. Recognizing a familiar face from the past, we exchanged numbers to start a friendship. Within a year of myspace conversations (hahahah), texting, concerts, and movie nights, a spark was lit.
Finally realizing that there was something more than friendship going on between us, I mustered up the courage to ask her out on a dinner date. IT WAS THE MOST AWKWARD TIME EVER!!! Even though we had been casually hanging out, there was something different about this night. Nervous laughs, sweaty palms, and general first date jitters filled the air that night. Although we had already built a solid friendship, we both knew that this date was the start of something deeper.
Eight years of more movie nights, dinner dates, and deep conversations, I knew I had found my soul mate.
Christina and Steven have a spark to them. I just love being around them because they are so happy! I love their energy and the way they don’t take life or each other too seriously. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their celebration and witnessing all the amazing love that filled the barrel room that special night. Cheers to You!!
Looking at Steven at this very moment caused a tear to fall down my cheek. He was just taken by the feeling of seeing his Love walking toward him.
I loved that the veil flew up and over her face just perfectly leaving her smiling face to be highlighted!
There was a definite brotherhood between all the groomsmen…the kind you just look at with envy.
So. Much. Fun! Love you both!
