Our Story

Kate and Andrew met in the spring of 2019 at the Coachella Music Festival. Amongst the thousands of people who attended the festival, the two found each and other immediately hit it off. Kate, who had not originally planned on attending Coachella, decided at the last minute to join her friend Amanda for the weekend. Amanda had rented a house with a group of friends, one of whom was Andrew. It wasn't long before Kate and Andrew's connection started to show, bonding over their love for music and the good food they planned to eat at the concert. The following day while Andrew was sunbathing by the pool, Kate sprayed him with a layer sunscreen. It was at this moment, Andrew realized he was falling in love. After a few weeks passed, Andrew was determined to take Kate out on their first date. He reached out to Kate to let her know he would be in Del Mar for work (he did not have any work-related meetings in Del Mar), and asked Kate to go on a date with him. Kate was still playing hard to get at this point, but eventually agreed to meet up with him. Andrew arrived at Death by Tequila in Encinitas for their first date 15 minutes early, and Kate arrived 15 minutes late. Despite their different definitions of punctuality, the date was full of laughter, good conversation, and two people that could not wait to see each another again. Their relationship quickly blossomed, having a storybook summer together in 2019. They spent their days going to the beach, sushi dates, and traveling. As Kate and Andrew continued to gush over their new relationship, the world came to a screeching halt in 2020. They quickly realized how easy it was for them to enjoy doing the simple things with one another. They bonded over cooking, long walks on the beach, and in general, doing life together. Although 2020 was not the year the two had planned, it solidified their relationship and love for each other in ways they could never have imagined. While the rest of the world seemed to stand still, their love for one another continued to grow stronger. Eventually, they knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Kate convinced Andrew to move to San Diego where they found a cozy apartment and adopted a beautiful golden retriever, Cooper. They loved spending their time together going to the beach, trying new restaurants, and traveling to tropical places. And now, as they stand before their friends and family, Kate and Andrew reflect on their journey and the love that brought them here. They exchange vows and promise to continue their adventure together, supporting each other through all of life's ups and downs. It's a love story that started at Coachella and has flourished into a beautiful life together.
