If you sat down & asked Sarah how she & Stuart met, she would without a doubt give all the credit to one simple thing: serendipity. And she’d maybe give a little bit of credit to Eharmony, as well. And she’d even give some credit to her friend who bet Sarah that if she couldn’t find love that year; she would buy Sarah dinner at a fabulous restaurant in the city. There were many different things that lead to Sarah & Stu meeting & falling in love but one thing is for sure: serendipity definitely played the largest role in their love story.
As fate would have it, Stuart messaged Sarah through Eharmony the same night she had made the bet with her friend. In Sarah’s words, she was, “instantly attracted to his kind eyes and easy going spirit.” But there was a catch. Stu didn’t live in California. He was living in New York but staying in California for a long project. They decided that it didn’t matter that he was a local & decided to meet up for drinks. At the end of the date, Stuart suggested that they should get together again. And again. And again. After every date, Stu made sure they had plans to see each other again. They dated in San Francisco for the next eight weeks until he had to return to New York. Although they were living on different coasts, they would travel back & forth to see each other regularly. After a year of dating, they decided that it was time to make official what they already knew in their hearts for such a long time: that they are a perfect, serendipitous match. They are tying the knot in November at Cavallo Point & I couldn’t be more estatic to be part of their special day!
Sarah & Stu- I had a great time wandering around Pier 39 & Cavallo Point for your engagement session. I am soooooooo excited for your wedding…for you to start your life together & especially excited that you will finally be able to live in the same city-for forever! xoxo, marielle.
I’m definitely a happy camper when an engagement session starts here…I <3 you, San Francisco.
And I’m an even happier camper when I get to photograph people like this…
I’m basically obsessed with this photo…
