One day, he wondered what it might be like to ask her out. The Cute Girl Behind the Counter. What would she say? Yes? Maybe? No way Jose? What would they do? Go out for coffee? No, that's not quite right. She works in a coffee shop, for Pete's sake! It'd have to be dinner or drinks. But ... wait! Coffee! If she were to say no, that means he couldn't continue going to his favorite cafe for his daily coffee! It was a risky position to be in. He'd become quite dependent on his daily caffeine fix and, should she say no, he'll have to start the hunt for the perfect coffee shop all over again. But if she said yes...
Finally, he plucked up the courage, pushed his fears of losing his favorite coffee shop aside, and asked her out. Much to his surprise and delight, the Cute Girl Behind the Counter said yes! She said yes to a date with him, later she said yes to moving back to California with him, and most importantly of all, she said yes when he asked her to spend the rest of her life by his side.
Molly and Patrick were married on a beautiful sun-drenched day in May, surrounded by loved ones nestled in the sweet little urban garden setting at Stable Cafe. They walked down the aisle together, exchanged vows in front of their most beloved friends and family, shared kisses and snuggles during dinner, then danced the night away. And of course, at the end of the evening, all the guests went home with an aromatic bag of Blue Bottle Coffee, a little reminder of how it all began.
Molly & Patrick - thank you so much for inviting me to capture such a beautiful day. Your love for each other is beautiful, thoughtful, and inspiring, and I'm grateful to have witnessed such an awesome day in your lives. Much love and happiness to you both. ♥
