La Jolla Real Wedding: Sarah & Aristo

After Sarah Reuben, 29, struck up a conversation about Italy with Aristo Orochena, 46, both of Beverly Hills, over a coffee table book display in Neiman Marcus, he surprised her by sending pasta to her office shortly after their encounter. They had their first date a week later and have been together ever since. After a sunset engagement in Maui, the couple married eight months later at Estancia La Jolla Hotel with a Sunday afternoon ceremony and Tuscany-inspired reception.
