i won’t lie – it always makes me slightly nervous when we don’t get to meet with our couples before the wedding. annie&evan live in san diego, so while we had chatted with them via email and phone calls, we never actually met them face to face! luckily, all my worrying was for naught. these two couldn’t have been more awesome if they tried! annie is a super fabulous chick with a killer sense of style and the world’s BEST smile. (seriously. she lights up the room. even the sun is jealous.) and then there’s evan, who should start moonlighting as a stand up comic. this guy gave the world’s best thank you speech at their reception. i was laughing, i was crying, i was crying because i was laughing so hard, and then laughing because i was crying!
and to top off the list of why these two are great, they remained calm, cool, and collected no matter what the day threw their way! they had an awesome bridal party who waived down both a skateboarder AND a ferrari during the photos. and let’s not forget the time their groomsmen had a dance-off with another bridal party. annie’s sister’s surprised everyone by bringing in a nacho cart after dinner. because as annie will emphatically tell anyone who will listen – nachos are the greatest snack food in existence.
to annie&evan – i’m still pretty convinced that we need to move to san diego and be best friends. you guys really are the perfect couple, and we had such a great time at the wedding!

and on a completely different note, the best piece of advice anyone ever gave me before my wedding was that something will always go wrong. and it’s all about being able to take that moment when it comes and just let it go. for most weddings, this amounts to someone running late, or a bad weather forecast. for annie&evan, it came in the form of a medical emergency. i think we can speak for everyone there when we say we’re so glad that father bob is ok!
