Our story begins where all great love stories begin....at a family party betting on our siblings in beer pong! Despite growing up a block away from each other and a close relationship between our families for years, our quality time together didn't begin until COVID. With the Friday night ritual of family parties, we were able to get to know each other over endless hours of games and fun. Craps tables, hot wing challenges, musical flip cup, pizza nights, Frozen Two (dont worry, Simon had a beer when he watched), and a trip to good old Shellback quickly turned into the beginning of our love story. We started dating and navigated long distances for about 2 months. When that wasn't cutting it, it was time for Annie to make the move to Oregon! We spent a year in Portland exploring the city and the beginning of our relationship together. Trips to Mt Hood to ski, drives to the coast to watch Simon surf, trying lots of different foods, and trips back to LA quickly showed us how easy it was to share our new life together. Combine our lives and become best friends. After a year in Portland, we made the move to Bend! We were excited to start a new chapter in this beautiful town, and have enjoyed the time we have spent here together. Throughout 2022, we experienced apartment moves and weddings, concerts and skiing, and lots of travels in and out of Oregon. We were lucky enough to make it official with our families present on September 18th, in the same place our relationship started. Through all the moves, the seasons, the adventures, we are most excited for this next chapter together. We are so excited for you to be a part of our love story and future. See you on October 28th!
