Both born and raised in Sacramento, Sophia and Kevin met as young children whose families were connected through various inner circles. While Sophia and Kevin were never close acquaintances as children, fate would bring them together.  

Sophia attended the University of California, Berkley, majoring in Business with a minor in Journalism. Kevin also attended Berkley with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Business. Luck would have it that the two met in their Junior year during a mutual Business class on campus. The two were assigned on the same group project, where they quickly discovered their connections. Months following their first interaction, they began dating and fell madly in love. The two loved the outdoors and often loved spending weekends in Napa and Sonoma. 

As graduation approached, each of them took jobs in entirely separate parts of the country. Kevin moved to Silicon Valley to work for a new technology start-up, and Sophia moved to Austin, Texas, to be a writer for The Daily Dot. Both Sophia and Kevin took great pride and passion with their work and were each wildly successful. After only one year of being in the workforce, Kevin relocated to Austin to be with his love. Kevin soon began working as a software developer for another Austin tech start-up. Sophia started her own company specializing as a freelance writer for major blogs such as Vogue, Martha Stewart, and Cosmopolitan. The two of them loved Austin, as it reminded them much of their home state.  

After six years of dating, Kevin proposed to Sophia during a weekend trip back in one of their favorite spots together in wine country. While they loved California, they decided to host their big day back in their new home state of Texas. During many different venue tours, they couldn’t find the right venue for them. They wanted to marry outside and were looking for a venue that embodied their love for the outdoors and nature.  

After weeks of putting wedding planning on hold, Kevin had to make a trip to Dallas for several work meetings. Because Sophia was a freelancer, she joined Kevin on his trip and decided to stay the weekend and explore the city. Their love for the outdoors led the both of them to the Dallas Arboretum. While there, the two of them fell in love and knew then this was the place they would marry.  

Their shared passion for wine, the outdoors, gardening, fashion, work, and live music are all contributing elements to their overall wedding design.
