Holly and Jonathan • Engaged

March 24, 2014

Holly and Jon somehow just always knew this was “it.” When they first met it felt like a secret. They were just friends, but Holly would always find herself gravitating towards him out of everyone else in their group.  Laughing a little more, sitting a little closer, smiling a little longer. Hopefully he wouldn’t notice… Or hopefully he would.

She laughs when telling this part of the story, knowing how their love story really did start when they were just kids with so much of their life ahead of them.

They had gone their separate directions but found their way back to one another. At a friend’s wedding their just-friends-ship started up again. But in 2010 he finally did it- he asked her out on a date! From that moment on they walked hand in hand into a myriad of adventures. Moving in together, plenty of adventures around Southern California, adopting their sweet pug Murphy, and deciding on forever before a Django Django concert. (I’m telling you that these two were MEANT to be together!! 🙂 )

Holly and Jon’s engagement session took place at the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Palos Verdes on a perfect Sunday at the end of winter. (I use the term “winter” lightly since it was 80 degrees! California, I love you.) Here are just a few favorites…
