Natasha and Steve met when she was studying abroad in Ohio; at 19 years old, they became friends, but they never dated. In the 13 years that followed, Natasha emigrated to Australia, and Steve joined the Navy based out of San Diego. While Natasha was on vacation in California with her parents, she and Steve met up again (after more than a decade), and from that moment, they knew they wanted to be together. They continued a long-distance relationship between Sydney and Los Angeles for a year and a half. During that time, they got engaged, and Natasha applied to become a U.S. citizen; a stipulation of her visa meant they had to get married within 90 days of her arriving in the U.S. After their courthouse marriage, they wanted a wedding celebration, so they chose a destination wedding at the Green Gables Estate in San Marcos. They loved the intimate, vintage feel of the venue, and they celebrated their love with their close friends and family! Justice Photography beautifully captured their day.
