Real Wedding: Christine & Ian

Christine and Ian met when she was four and he was eight – they never imagined one day they would vow forever and exchange “I dos!” Years later, friends and family gathered for Christine and Ian’s real wedding at Calamigos Ranch, uniting the childhood friends.

Ian’s grandmother lived on the same street as Christine growing up. Both Ian and Christine had brothers, so the four spent a lot of time together – skateboarding, biking, making paper airplanes, hiking and looking for reptiles. They were good kids, always watching out for each other, and Christine kept a secret for years that her first crush was for Ian. Of course she never thought anything would ever come from it!

When Christine was about eleven years old, her family relocated to a neighborhood full of kids, but the move was bittersweet; she left her friends and her crush! It wouldn’t be until eighteen years later that Christine would be reunited with Ian at a small gathering at her brother’s house after the two boys (now men) serendipitously ran into each other at the zoo!  Christine and Ian have been together since, and she says she is “so grateful to have been reunited with my first crush and best friend.”
