I have learned over the years that there are always 2 versions of every story. This is oh so true for that one story that will be told for generations to come. The “How We Met” story…My FAVORITE bedtime story of all time. Without fail, as couples tell me how they met, there is always a ping pong match of details between the two of them of how it “really happened”. This is true for Kerry & Kevin whose stories are very different and yet, it has showed me that how it happened is less important than the fact that it did happen. Both stories are beautiful in their own way, but why don’t you decide which you prefer
Once upon a time on a warm sunny day in February in the year 2011, mutual friends of ours were hosting a house warming party in our home town of Alameda California…
Kerry: I wasn’t sure if I was going to make the party…I decided to swing by just for a bit. Shortly after I arrived, Kevin walked in and smiled. He quickly introduced himself as the new guy in town from Chicago. He was kind enough to offer a hug. A little while later I was outside, as he walked by, he reached out and kissed my hand. I must admit, I was a bit surprised. Just before leaving, I was talking with some friends and Kevin passed by, as he did, he leaned down and kissed me. I asked, who is this handsome friendly fella? Soon after the party, I received a Facebook message from Kevin asking me out on a date.
Kevin: I was at a co-workers house warming party enjoying a nice refreshing glass of ice tea and conversation. I went inside for a tour and noticed a table of some young ladies. I went up and introduced myself since I was relatively new to the area. I could tell Kerry was interested in me from the beginning due to her bumping in to me a few other times that evening. When it was time for me turn in for the night, she ran up and gave me a big hug and kiss on the cheek. A few weeks later I received some news at work about a certain individual inquiring about me. Not too long after that I recieved a message on Facebook asking to meet out for a bite to eat. Its been a new kinda fun ever since!
This wedding was top notch! Classy in every way complete with 2 dresses, lanterns and rose petals lining the aisle, grapes and white pumpkins, a 1948 Chrysler New Yorker, and a night danced away by the light of candles. It was just a dream to be a part of! Murietta’s Well in Livermore was the perfect setting for this Harvest Vineyard wedding. Kerry had a clear vision of exactly what she wanted and it was pulled together beautifully. I just LOVED her creative idea of using antique keys with names for the seating assignments. Each table had a corresponding wooden door with crystal door knob and number (handmade by Kevin)! So Freaking CUTE! I could go on, but why not just check it out below! It may cause you to go on a Pinterest Frenzy!
Fuchsia Dahlias?! Commmon’! Just gorgeous!
Their gorgeous white car waiting to take the newlyweds away and a lounge area surrounded by candle light, rose petals, and dark chocolate!
Idn’t she a beauty! The car ain’t so bad either…say it the way they talked in the 1940’s for full effect…
It doesn’t get any more romantic than this does it?!
