Not really, more like she was in a pageant and he was the pageant director. Fast forward 10 years later and Gabino and Sasa are madly in love and getting married next September. O.K I know…if you are actually reading my poorly written blog words vs. just looking at the photos, you may say, yeah yeah yeah, Beth, you ALWAYS say how much you love your couples and how super awesome they are. But on the real though, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this couple and they TRULY ARE SUPER AWESOME. They are just the kindest, most adoring, likable couple on the earth. It did not hurt the situation that they were super good looking and really just trusted me to do my thang. Here goes the photos:
Talk about a great love story. Jessica and Doug have about the cutest love tale around. They met in…wait for it..5th grade. Their lives took them in many different directions, but for Jessica, who traveled a lot as a kid, Doug was always home ( ahhh I just got chills writing that ). These two are the real deal soul mates. When they interviewed me to be their photographer I wanted to book their wedding so hard. I must have played it cool, because I was honored to be a part of their most spectacular day.
Man live was the dream team in the house at this Wine and Roses ( a.k.a Guns and Roses ). Kendra Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Event planning nailed this wedding, as did the very talented Audrey from Bontanica, superstar Bryan from Music and More, my girls Shana from Shana Beals Make-up Artistry and Tina Romo ( a.k.a Tina Romooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo )rocking the hair and make-up , and Corkie Matson as their heartfelt officiant. Love, joy, rainbows, bunnies and kittens all the way for the special day.
Fun Fact for the first photo, Jessica rented those super spendy earrings, and yes…I DID put them on a banana.
