Kaylah + Stephen

How did you meet?

Stephen and I met in college! We both played soccer for the university we attended and we shared the same coach which meant that we spent a lot of time on trips and soccer games together. He had told a friend of mine that he though I was pretty my freshman year. We didn’t officially meet until my sophomore year on the way back home from a soccer game. I noticed he bought some Krispy Kreme Donuts and I really wanted one!! He told me I could only get one if I went and talked to him…and the rest is history!

When did you know they were the one?

I knew Stephen was the one when I told him that I wasn’t ready to get in a relationship and he kept pursuing me. He never gave up on trying to be with me and I was very attracted to that.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Stephen is gentle, funny and challenging. He truly is my best friend and I admire everything about him.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

Searching for a dress was pretty hard for me. I tried on about 20 dresses and none of them made me feel like a bride. I was cutting it close with the dress time frame and l happened to go with my mother in law to Love & Lace Salon in Irvine, CA about 6 months before the wedding. I tried on the Stevie dress and automatically knew it was my dress! I was even more convinced when I found out it was named Stevie because that’s my nickname for Stephen! I loved the lace and deep v cut back was to die for! I finally felt like a bride 🙂

Who proposed and how?

Stephen told me that we were going to meet with some friends for a church service in La Jolla, CA. Little did that I know, that he was going to propose to me on the cliffs by the ocean! I couldn’t believe it and was crying out of pure joy. He had both our of families and closest friends waiting for us afterward at a restaurant near by to celebrate!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

For our honeymoon we went to Europe for two weeks! We spent a few days being touristy and sight seeing around Rome, Italy and Barcelona, Spain. We ended the trip on an island off of Italy called Sardinia. It was the most beautiful place we had ever been to and we ate pizza for dinner every night!
