They have the kind of love that seems like they’ve been together for decades. It’s a classy slow dance in the middle of the kitchen kind of love. As you watch the way they interact with each other, you can tell they have beautiful relationship of love and respect, as well as playfulness and fun! Their first date was over coffee (Brian got hot chocolate) and they spent hours talking and getting to know each other, and they stayed until closing. And little did they know this would not be the last time they lost track of time with each other, and stayed somewhere till closing.
Chrissy is sweet, has a bubbly personality, and her smile can light up the entire room! She loves all things cheesy and Hallmark, and Brian is her better-than-Hallmark real life love! Brian is thoughtful and sentimental, and he spent 6 months working on Chrissy’s birthday present. He secretly created a website for her that started with the day they met all the way through current day, with images and blog posts about their journey together! And let us tell you, when we read it, we smiled, laughed and cried our eyes out! What an incredible birthday present, and what an incredible man, Chrissy you’re a lucky one indeed! My goodness these two are incredible! They have the kind of love that is better than movies, and a relationship that definitely inspires Hallmark cards!
And can we just talk about her gorgeous ring for a second? Wowza! She told him she wanted something different from every other ring she had seen, and he clearly went above and beyod and created such beautiful heirloom! We have never even seen a ring like this, and we are already looking forward to the next time we get to photograph it at their wedding!
They came down from the bay area for their engagement session in beautiful Santa Barbara. Jess and Chrissy first met at Westmont college, and because Santa Barbara is always gorgeous and Chrissy had spent years here before, they decided to make a weekend trip out of it! And they even got to celebrate Brian’s birthday while there were here too! We loved their classy blue snd white outfits! The second they walked into Good Lion for drinks beforehand we were absolutely smitten with their adorable outfits! And ladies, before you even ask, her dress is by Betsy Johnson! Isn’t it stunning!? We absolutely love the way her dress flowed int he coastal breeze, and he looked handsome in a white button down, blue pants, and a brown belt and brown shoes.
We love they way they whisper in each others ears, and can easily make each other laugh! They are absolutely adorable together and we are so excited for their wedding in Monterey this summer!
