When I was 12 or 13 years old I met my best friend Julie…
We decided we wanted to be sisters too!
Neither of us wanted to marry the other ones brother (sorry boys)..
so we decided to set up my youngest brother with her youngest sister.
They were just 7 and 9 at the time.
Mary was the cutest little strawberry blonde I had ever seen..
And she had the biggest crush on Christian.
She used to alway ask me… “does Christian like me? does he think I’m cute?”
He didn’t like girls yet. He only liked airplanes.
We even made up a song for them..
“Christian’s going to marry a Mary…. Mary’s going to marry a pilot.”
It was pretty obnoxious.
But then one day Christian did start noticing girls. Well, really just one girl.
Has always only ever noticed Mary.
When Mary asked me to do her Bridals and first look pictures I was excited/terrified.
This was my first time doing bridal.. but I loved it! I’m hooked and can’t wait to start doing more.
A few weeks after I took these pictures Christian and Mary got married in the San Diego LDS Temple,
and had their reception in our hometown Rancho Cucamonga. The amazing Stacey Bishop photographed their wedding and it was the perfect night. To see the photos from their wedding check them out on Stacey’s blog here.
