Kelly and Matt had a dreamy summer, garden-inspired wedding at Oyster Ridge in Santa Margarita. These two have built incredible relationships. Not only with each other, but with their parents and close friends. I loved the personal touches from the custom ties for the dads to the drink stir stick, it was truly Matt and Kelly through and through. And you need to see Matt’s reaction to seeing Kelly walk down the aisle. See how it all started as well as some favorites throughout the day.

How it Started

January – July 2014

Matt and Kelly met at Cal Poly through mutual friends. After hanging around in the same social circles for a few months; they began hanging out just the two of them. She loved his easy-going nature and fantastic sense of humor. He loved her undeniable charisma and down-to-earth personality. They knew this was something special. And they couldn’t stand the idea of not seeing each other for the summer.

One night after a date at the Alameda County Fair, they were at the In-n-Out drive-thru. Matt noticed that Kelly was being uncharacteristically quiet. When he asked her what she was thinking about, she blurted out that she had been referring to him as her boyfriend. He smiled and said, “okay, good!” And they have been together ever since.
