Katie + Brendan




Katie: “One of my favorite places is The Rooftop in Laguna Beach; the view is incredible and their drinks are delicious. Brendan randomly suggested us going there for breakfast on a Saturday morning, which is weird in itself because he NEVER makes plans; plus we already had plans that weekend for his dad’s birthday. The whole breakfast was kind of comical looking back because he was so weird and fidgety. After we finished our yummy breakfast and drinks, he asked me if I wanted to take a walk on the beach … again, WEIRD! I, of course, said yes and we strolled the sand barefoot. We ended up walking through this beautiful rock cave and landed on these huge rocks that went out into the ocean. He wanted to walk out to like the furthest rock, later finding out he was trying to get away from other people because he didn’t want a crowd. Out there in the middle of the peaceful ocean, just the two of us, he dropped down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I was in awe, to see him so raw and actually be in this moment with him I had been thinking about forever. With tears rolling down my face, I couldn’t even get the word “yes” out of my mouth – I kept laughing and crying, the perfect mix of emotions. It was the most intimate, magical and surreal moment. I still get chills thinking about it. Oh, and the ring … exactly what I wanted!”


Over five years ago, when we first met, I never thought we’d be where we are today. We have grown so much together and I love that we continue to grow. I can’t wait for the future and what it holds. I am so excited to adventure with you and create memories as we travel, buy our first home and start a beautiful family. Throughout the years you have always been my rock. You have stood by my side through my ups and downs. You have never given up on me and you’re always there to make laugh when I need it most. I promise to love you unconditionally and always be there no matter what life throws at us. I will always stand by your side and support your decisions. I love you more than words can describe.


When I first met you, I knew there was something special about you. Five short years later we are married. You have always brought out the good in me and given me the strength to become a better person. I look forward to the years ahead. I can’t wait to travel the world with you, enjoying new adventures together along the way. I also look forward to the day we make a house our own, and start a family. Hopefully we can add a couple more dogs on the way too. One thing I will always strive to do no matter what obstacles come along is grow with you as a couple. I promise to support you and stand by your side no matter what. You will always be my priority even if it seems life is getting in the way. You’re my best friend, and you always will be. I love you with all my heart.
