I met Jamie the last semester of senior year in high school, and although we only knew each other for half of a year before going our separate ways for college, we became close friends and have remained close throughout the years. I played softball competitively for a good 12 years of my life, and before going to UNC on a softball scholarship, I transferred the last semester of my senior year of high school from a private all-girls school in Pasadena to a public school with a top softball team in Tustin (all southern California). Jamie was my catcher at this new school, Foothill, so we quickly got to know one another really well and, along with our good friend Jess, became inseparable. Her family kind of adopted me for those four months so that every time I go for a visit, I feel right at home.
Jamie started dating Steve after college, and he oh-so-romantically whisked her off to Paris for half a year. His love for and devotion to Jamie have never wavered, and I can’t wait to have new adventures with the Cruzes.
I feel so privileged to witness the weddings of my clients, but it was so special to see so many familiar faces show their love and support for one of my dear friends and her husband. Here are a few photos from their day – it’s not easy to take lots of photos as a bridesmaid, but I managed to capture some. They had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda.
