Stephanie and Emmitt met online dating while Stephanie was living in Oregon, and Emmitt in San Diego. They took some time to get to know each other before Stephanie made the trip to San Diego to meet Emmitt in person.
They had an instant connection and continued their long distance relationship for about 7 months before Stephanie packed up and moved to Southern California to be closer to him. About a year later, Emmitt threw a surprise birthday party for Stephanie and asked her to be his wife in front of all of their closest friends. Emmitt actually heard of SEVEN4ONE through a friend who had hosted his Super Bowl party there one year, so when he and Stephanie looked at it online, immediately they knew it was where they would get married.
They both love the beach, and had spent a lot of time in Laguna while getting to know one another. Their wedding was small, personal, and absolutely magical.
