Our story

Our first date was at a gourmet ramen place in Tacoma. We loved getting to know each other over the phone & chatting about everything. We enjoyed dating each other and decided to move in together around April 2022. We took a long road trip from Tacoma to San Diego in Sept of that year. We stopped through to sight see Yosemite, San Francisco, Big Sur, Los Angeles & ended in San Diego. While in Big Sur driving the coast we were stopping at different view points. Once we found one that was empty, James surprised me & proposed on the cliff side. I said yes & we were so excited. We continued driving down the coast & found a restaurant to each lunch & cheers with a beer. I had so much fun showing James my state and all my favorite areas. We came home and decided to have our official wedding a year from the day we got engaged. Sept 10th. As we started the wedding planning process we decided we just couldn't wait to get married a whole year. So we scheduled a Seattle courthouse wedding on Jan 3. 2023. We had a beautiful day with just a few folks. We still wanted to have our "regular" wedding & have a chance for a few more friends and family to attend. We want to have a small intimate day & enjoy making our continued commitment to each other. We are so happy to have the ability to bring both our families together on Sept. 10, 2023 and get some family photos in the process.
