When Steve and Ana met through work in 2012, they made it very clear to each other that they were only interested in being friends…which, let’s be honest, almost always leads to a proposal 😉 😉 I have heard a ton of love stories, and that my friends, is definitely a good rule to make if you want to marry said person 😉 Anyhow, Ana was determined to stay friends with Steve, even joking she’d punch him in the throat if he tried to kiss her. haha! Regardless, they continued spending time together and hiding their true feelings for one another became more and more difficult. One day Steve decided to take his chances and pulled Ana aside and kissed her…AND, she kissed him back! On March 31, 2013 they made their relationship official and Steve transferred job locations so they could date openly. A few years later on their anniversary they got engaged! And even more amazing, on March 31, 2017 they got married! I think it is safe to say that 3-31 are their lucky numbers 😉
I had so much fun shooting this wedding! There were 3 couples in attendance whose weddings I had previously captured including Ana’s brother, Franky! It’s always fun having friends at a wedding cuz I feel so very welcomed and no one is as shocked when they see what a goober I am. After their gorgeous wedding at Seascape Golf Club in Aptos, they were greeted by a mariachi band which set the tone for a fun night to follow! I especially loved our time at the beach down the street which we practically had ourselves! Congrats Ana & Steve! I am so excited to see what other exciting things you have in store, especially on the last day of all your Marches.
