This past weekend’s wedding for Tracey & Blake at Loma Grande Ranch was extra special. I have known Tracey and have become dear friends over the past seven years. We met while doing events. She was at Cool Cat Cafe and I was at Kennedy Club Fitness. Soon thereafter, we started our wedding businesses around the same time. We have supported each other and helped each other grow over these past seven years. Seeing her go from girlfriend to fiance, to wife has been such a blessing. Tracey & Blake have the biggest hearts!! And it clearly showed on their big day!
So let me share some of my favorite moments from the day. Their pup, Roxy was able to hang out while Tracey got ready. Blake seeing Tracey for the first time before the ceremony and sharing their personal vows with each other. Seeing Tracey’s design come to life in their reception space! Talk about amazing colors and textures. Having Tracey be dropped off in grandpa’s Model A at the end of the aisle as her dad escorted her. Riding on the side of the Model A to the front of the property for some photos. And then dancing the night away with all of their friends and family. Just go see some of the highlights below!!
In 2006, we met at a party. Three years later, Tracey started working at Cool Cat Cafe. Little did she know, Blake and his grandfather had been going in for lunch every Thursday afternoon for years. The first Thursday she worked, Blake and grandpa walked in, and let us just say, she immediately got butterflies and couldn’t wait to talk to the stud who rolled up in his 1972 Nova. As weeks went on, the flirting got stronger and the digits were traded. It took several weeks of Blake pursuing to take Tracey out. She finally gave in and Blake swept Tracey right off her feet.
