Christie + Jordan | Sandy Paradise Wedding

Let's go back to about a year ago when I first met Christie and Jordan. We met at Eclipse Chocolate to bond over some BOMB lattes and drinking chocolates. Within a few minutes of quick bonding though, we unanimously agreed to order appetizers... and then dinner... and then dessert (or maybe that last one was just me). These two made a solid impression on me over delicious foods. Christie is this tiny person full of excitement and wit and just so.much.energy. She gives a damn about many things, and it's glorious to see such passion. And Christie, have you ever seen the way Jordan looks at you when you're talking energetically about something you're into? All the heart eyes.

He is slayyyyyyed by his lady. It's much like how I look at my favorite strawberry ice cream (Breyer's... duh) after a long day. Like, "Could you BE any more amazing? I can't imagine my life without you. No, but really. How are you so awesome?!"

He's just one of those insanely intelligent observers of life. No big deal. Together they are a light to be around. The world needs more Christies and Jordans. They offer so many laughs and a refreshing sense of authenticity to those around them.

They held the biggest party of their lives at Catamaran Resort and Spa in San Diego and went all out with the luxurious beach theme. I could not stop gushing over the ocean blue accents, peachy corals and dusty pink florals by PEP Creative, and the small details like the starfish in the ladies' updos. And can we talk about the toasts? One minute I'm crying, and the next I can't catch my breath from laughing so much. Best. EVER.

Christie and Jordan, what an honor to have been asked to be a part of your day!
