OC Creatives Collaborate to Make an Engaged Couple’s Dream Come True

OC Creatives Collaborate to Make an Engaged Couples Dream Come True

WE LOVE THIS…..

We’ve been dabbling in the world of weddings and have met some incredibly talented wedding vendors. A few of these amazing OC creatives got together to make a engaged couple’s dream come true. Check out the idea behind the giveaway and meet the happy couple who won and why.

FROM THE VENDORS…

We wanted to get together with some of our favorite vendors, but we also wanted to give back. We launched an instagram, “Styled Session Giveaway” and asked couples in need of an engagement shoot to send us a letter about themselves. The results were overwhelming; we cried through most of them, and it was near impossible to pick a ‘winner’. Once they had been hand picked, we set out to create a beautiful day for our couple. One of sand, salt, and a bit of sailing… The results were magic not only for our bride and groom, but for our team of vendors as well.

Giveaway Entry from the Bride

I don’t know if I believe in love at first sight but I do believe that there is something to be said by seeing someone and knowing something is supposed to happen. Jonathan was that to me. I still remember him walking into pizza port. From his shirt and jeans to his beard, to his shoes, I remember everything. I knew I was supposed to be there.

This man has taught me what true love is, but not only me, he has helped teach my kids what it means to cherish, respect and love a women. I fell in love fast, and so did he. I would say that this type of love is rare. It’s a love that goes deeper than any book or movie or made up love seen but rather to the core of someone and grows it’s roots deeper daily.

I think you know when you’ve found the right person when the closest people to you all agree. From parents to family to best friends and co workers. This love is supposed to make you a better person and bring out the best in you.

This is just the next chapter in our awesome love story. Our journey has just begun! And I am honored to get to be his.

Thank you for taking the time to peruse our labor of love. ∼The Dream Team
