High School Sweetheart Engagement
This sweet bride's recount of the way she met her future husband in high school just melts our hearts. We felt like we were reading the storyline of a rom-com movie and were completely entranced! Plus her Galia Lahav gown and chic Sarah Seven romper are stunning...
From the bride: "For this woodsy inspired elopement we went to Santa Anita Canyon. We wanted it to feel fresh and fun. We were hoping for some elegance and wanted to juxtapose the beautiful garments against natural landscape. Kristen and Tyler drove about 4 hours and it just so happened to be overcast and gloomy, but we were fine with it. The story of how they met is so sweet we thought to include it in here:
Tyler and I have known each other since we were eleven years old. We met in middle school. In a small city that only consisted of one middle school and one high school. The city is called, Patterson (lots of chickens, cows, and fields of crops). Tyler and I were always friends but did not start dating until our senior year of high school.
On the first day of senior year all the students come early to find their assigned lockers before school begins. I went to find my locker and noticed I had been assigned a bottom locker. I knew I would have to bend down every day to get my books. My three previous years I always had a bottom locker, so I was not pleased. I decided to take initiative, and put all my belongings in the locker above mine. I even put my lock on it to claim it.
After, I went to find my classes so that I wouldn’t get lost throughout the school day. When I returned to my locker, (not mine, I just put my lock on it) I noticed our campus security with huge pliers standing next to Tyler ready to cut my lock off. I said, “wait! Don’t cut my lock! ” Tyler politely told me to get my things out, because he never had a top locker and this year he was assigned to the one I had claimed. We fought over the locker for about five minutes when we noticed the campus security had already left us. We decided to share the locker until I found a better home for my books. I was aggravated with the situation and speed walked to my first period class. Once I found my seat in class, I noticed the seat next to me was still empty. Soon after, what do you know; Tyler is assigned to the same class, and sits in the one open seat next to me. Fast-forward six years, we are very much in love, I might have stole his locker but he stole my heart senior year 2010."
