Matthew and Kiera originally met in 7th grade, in Physics class. They sat near each other, but never really hung out. They ended up going to different high schools. Matthew went to Mission and Kiera to El Toro. Kiera's friend (that went to Mission) had a picture of her in her binder and Matt saw it in one of their classes. He told her friend he had to (re)meet her and showed up at a party she was throwing at her parents house. They hit it off right off the bat and ended up having their first kiss that night! They dated for the next 6 months where they both experienced ''first love'.' True high school sweethearts. They even went to homecoming together.
Over the years, they dated off and on. Something kept pulling them together, over and over and over! They spent summers together at the river, took family trips together, and spoke every day.
Both of their families knew it was meant to be, but it took them until September 2009 to really figure it out for themselves. It took many years for them to truly get it together, but the love has always been there, and the friendship never ended, only growing stronger over the years. Now they couldn't be happier and intend on having a long, healthy, loving life together.

We love their wedding pictures and you can tell from thier smile, their day was all they had dreamed about and more...

Kelly and Travis 9-1-2012

It took less than one minute to instantly fall in love Kelly and her mom Kim. Kelly’s mom had attended a wedding here a few years prior so when her daughter got engaged she knew just where to bring her. Kelly fell in love with the estate right away; her joy and enthusiasm made us smile from ear to ear. We loved the classic feel with a color pallet of black, white and a touch of Tiffany Blue. We incorporated lots of rhinestones, hanging chandeliers and rhinestone broaches on each napkin to up the elegance factor.    We truly believe that no two brides are the same, and every wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event and this was no exception... check out the prettiness...
 Kelly and her maids arrived bright and early for hair and makeup

We just love Kelly's expression, so full of joy and her smile says it all

 Kelly wanted a classic garden feel for her centerpieces.  Her special request... one grass ball in each one and of course a little bling
 A little more bling...
Lovely little details
