This past weekend was bittersweet. I finished my 2019 wedding season celebrating Melissa & Nick at the quaint Hartley Farms in San Miguel, CA. I knew it was going to be a fun weekend after meeting up with them earlier this year to walk the property together. What I love about this venue is that it feels like an oasis, far from the dried-up hills and scorching temperatures. Melissa and her mom are in the event industry in Monterey, so they put together quite an event!! From the little jars of jam, to the dessert table, to the epic dance floor, you’ll want to scroll to see the highlights!! I love their story of how these two found love. Read below and enjoy!

Our love story is many years in the making. Over 4 years ago, our boys, Colton and Robbie, were assigned to the same soccer team. As dedicated parents, we stayed to watch most practices and never missed a game. While we were there cheering on the kids, we were also developing a strong friendship. But when the soccer season came to an end, we parted ways without exchanging phone numbers.

Three years later, the fates intervened, and the boys were again placed on the same sports team. This time, it was baseball. And this time, we were not letting each other go. We spent 3-4 hours together 3-4 days a week watching the boys play and solidifying the bond we had started so many years ago.

We both feel incredibly lucky to have found each other. Our love for our kids, our families, and each other only grows more each day.
