Santa Barbara Engagement Session from Edward Scott Foto
March 7, 2013

We have been itching to share the adorableness of this couple for some time now, and we couldn't be more excited that today is finally the day. And although I would love to blabber on and on (as I tend to do) about just how amazing this couple is, and how they are most definitely going to live happily every after - I am going to instead pass that baton to the Groom. Because his description might go down in SMP history as the very best, and one look below and you'll know why. So thank you Edward Scott Foto for sending these two our way. And stay tuned to the main page for their wedding going later up today!

From the Groom... Sarah and Richard met under the infallible reign of King Arthur. Rich was a noble knight serving his king and the realm and Sarah was a queen married to the very king Richard served. But Richard loved her all the same. No wait, that's not them. Sarah and Rich were the son and daughter of two feuding houses in the city of Verona. One night while Sarah was on her balcony, Rich snuck up outside and hit on her in iambic pentameter. No, that's them either... Now I remember...

Sarah is chef and Richard a writer, living in Los Angeles... and they met the old fashioned way. Sarah went to high school with Rich's roommate and one day he looked her up on Facebook, thought she was super hot, and asked her on a date in an email that was way to bold for him to have ever said out loud to her in person. They dated for only 8 months and then one day Rich looked at her and saw forever.

On a trip home to North Carolina for his 10 year high school reunion with Sarah, he asked his mom for his grandmothers ring. She basically handed it to him in front of Sarah while they were at lunch. Luckily she said something along the lines of "Don't worry it's not a ring." Whether or not Sarah did, in fact, worry, is a mystery to this day. Seven days later he proposed to her at night, on the sand, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, at the very same beach his grandmother visited the last day she was alive. For the first time in just over a decade, the ring would be back on the finger of a woman Rich loved very much. (Please note, the way he loves these two women is very different.)

And after that, the rest is history. Well not history, as much as the present. Presently Sarah and Rich have been engaged for 11 months and are set to be married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California. Rich pretty much feels like the luckiest guy in the world and Sarah is pretty sure she'll be able to make this last forever. Edward Scott, who shot the engagement photos, will also be shooting the wedding and Richard has promised not to roll up his pants like he's in an episode of Dawson's Creek.
