Backyard weddings get me every time. Brittni and Ben's gorgeous summer celebration at her best friend's house in Los Gatos, California, is one of my favorites! Their wedding had so many thoughtful, beautiful details, ranging from olive oil favors that were produced and bottled by Ben's family, to the “flash mob” dance that took place after the couple's first dance. Adriana Klas Photography captured their stunning wedding!
In 2008, Ben and I were living in Campbell, both focused on our careers when our roommates started dating. Naturally we were introduced, and Ben continually asked his roommate to involve me in more group activities but was slow to do so. Eventually, Ben took it upon himself to reach out to me via Facebook (since he didn't have my number). His witty charm convinced me that he was worth one date, or at least a free meal. His witty charm proved to be irresistible, and we immediately fell in love. We moved in together after just three months of dating, which by our grandparents' standards was moving just a little too fast – but as Ben always says, “It doesn't take a whole day to recognize sunshine,” (which is why my Dad called Ben “Eddie Haskel” at first).
As we moved forward in our relationship, it was brought to our attention that we have been linked since birth. Our parents are in the same circle of friends, Ben played T-ball with my brother Aaron, and I went to Santa Clara All Sports Camp with Gus when I was 9, just to name a few.
We have been destined to meet and are happy to have found each other. Both of us have grown into the people we are today because of our relationship. We motivate one another to constantly evolve and improve ourselves. We are the loves of each other's lives and are blessed to not only have each other, but the amazing families that come along with it. – Brittni
