From High School Sweethearts to Happily Ever After

High School sweethearts turned all grown-up husband and wife seems like the stuff of fairytales but this gorgeous couple is proof that that kind of love still exists. And oh is it deserving of a big celebration. With greenery and white blooms made gorgeous by Fionna Floral and frame-worthy photographs by This Modern Romance, this elegant affair is the culmination of puppy love turned into happily ever after love.

Country Club

From the Bride… I know, I know you’ve all heard the story before of the high school sweethearts falling in love and marrying each other. But, that’s just what happened with the two of us! We met our freshman year of high school, and he won me over with his guitar playing skills and that is how our love story began. We have been inseparable since that day. Once I finished college and Skyler followed his dream of playing professional baseball we packed up and headed east to Denver where we added two furry family members – our dogs Wrigley and Duke. Fast forward three years later we had enough of the snow and now happily living in our hometown of Monterey Bay. Our wedding was the most incredible day of our lives that we are able to share with our closet family and friends.
