When a couple is perfect together, there are very clear signs. As I got Connor in position for his first look with Christine before their Ventura County garden wedding, I told him what he could expect. I told him his soon-to-be wife would be coming down the hallway shortly and noted that she would tell him when he could turn around. He said, “I’ll probably just hear her giggle.”
Sure enough, as she rounded the corner as began approaching him, Christine almost immediately let out a giggle as she prepared for their first look.
Their families knew pretty early on what a great match Christine and Connor were as well. During her maid of honor speech, Christine’s sister Emily recounted how eager she and Christine’s friend were to finally get the pair to meet, noting their shared passions for math and the Anaheim Ducks. And Connor’s dad revealed that after meeting Christine for the very first time, Connor’s grandma Jo was already picking out her teacup (a special honor only reserved for family members).
Christine and Connor, it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know the two of you. Christine, your attention to detail makes this type-A photographer’s heart swoon! And Connor— your cool, calm, and collected nature puts everyone around you at ease. You two complement each other so well. You seem to know each other so fully, and all of those around you can see how perfect you are together. Congratulations and best wishes for the many years to come!
