When friends convinced Paul and Lauren to sign up for online dating – neither of them know that it would only take just *one* date for fate to bring these two together!
They hit it off quickly and have been together for over eight years. During that time they’ve adventured around the world together – including an epic trip to Thailand where Paul proposed while kayaking through caves.
But amongst all the places in the world they could tie the knot, they chose Idllywild, a place near and dear to their hearts. They used to own a cabin here years ago and have so many memories in this cozy town surrounded by granite and towering sugar pines. Their favorite mode of transportation to their Idllywild trips was to take the winding mountain roads via motorbike! I was SO pumped to capture this part of their relationship! I’ll never forget hanging out the hatchback of my Prius as we flew down the mountain and these two trailed close behind on the bike.
Although these two have been together for so many years, their love is still so fresh and raw. Listening to their vows, watching the way these two just *look* at each other – it’s just the best. It was beautiful to listen to toast after toast from family and fiends who echoed what is so obvious – these two are a perfect match.
I was thrilled to capture this beautiful day for these two and know they have many more adventure-filled years together, with their sweet black lab Justice!
Congrats Paul and Lauren!
