From The Bride:

I was a Midwestern girl wanna be Californian and had freshly relocated to San Diego from San Francisco. Paul was a 10 year SD resident surf addict with a Tinder profile that I just couldn’t refuse. Needless to say being that I was anxious to make new friends (and perhaps hoping to score a nice dinner date in a new city) I swiped right.

Things went from an opening line to endless texting to a first date in a matter of a few weeks. We both knew even before we met that something about each other was “different”. Paul was someone that could keep up with my witt (and more importantly odd sense of humor). He didn’t even get scared away when I sent him a fruit basket to his work as a joke the morning of our first date.

Our first date was one of the best nights of our lives. We realized quickly that we both just “got each other” and it was very easy conversation. We knew there is that saying “when you know you know”… and we’ll be the first to admit it’s 100% true. Anyone who wants proof could resort in me digging up an old email I sent my mom once I got home that night. It just may have read ….”Mom, this sounds crazy but I think I just met the man I’m going to marry.”

Before Paul and I moved in together, he used to live in Solana Beach. Solana Beach is home to the gorgeous Fletcher Cove where we dubbed the self proclaimed nicknames “wolf & moon”.

We found ourselves at Fletcher all the time whether it was for surfing, pretending we were merpeople, or sunbathing till there was no more light in the sky. After numerous proposal idea sessions amongst his friends, Paul landed on the idea of popping the question at the cove. With Fiesta Del Sol around the corner (a local music & art festival) it made the perfect excuse to cruise from our home downtown to our once old stomping grounds. We met up with friends, had a few cocktails, cruised the vendors and then went to check out the surf. To aid as a distraction while our friends stood back and began filming, Paul’s best friend called as we were standing on top of the cove.

He asked some random questions and then ended the phone call with “Callie I want you to know Paul is all yours”.

Paul then dropped to his knee gave a speech and stated “If I’m a wolf….then you’re the only moon I want to howl at.”

He then presented the most stunning ring I’ve ever seen. I wanted to shout from the cliff tops “YASSSSS!!!!!” but all I managed through the sobbing was a faint pipsqueak “yes”.

Our wedding was 100% Paul and I. We wanted a non-traditional, unexpected, whimsical and a wolf & moon themed wedding. We wanted our day to scream us – so we customized everything from the ceremony, to decorations, to the event space itself. We decided to break all the wedding rules and make the day all about us and our love. We had multiple Best Men and Maid of Honors. We had a friend get ordained online to marry us, and we wrote our own wedding poem to read in the middle of the ceremony. We wanted each guest to leave and say “Wow I have never been to a wedding like that” – which I am pretty sure we accomplished just that!
