Chris and Sarah’s love story shows that sometimes the “one” is right around the corner—quite literally! They were originally next door neighbors. That is, until they bumped into one another in the hallway of their building and their romantic future was sealed.
On an annual birthday trip to Big Bear (their birthdays are only one day apart), Chris dropped to one knee in the snow and Sarah was thrilled to say yes to the wintery surprise.
The couple wanted to craft a romantic vineyard wedding at Ponte Winery in Temecula, filled with personal touches and their closest friends and family. Chris even built the guest book table out of a piece of furniture belonging to his grandparents.
Looking back at the day, Sarah tells other couples to try to slow down and enjoy every moment of your wedding day: “The day truly goes by so fast, and you’re on a schedule. But we both tired to remember to breathe, relax, take in everything and not sweat the small stuff.”
