Kevin asked Caroline to be his girlfriend. On the school bus. IN SECOND GRADE!
Sweet seven-year-old Caroline didn’t waste time answering…
Kevin spent of the rest of the bus ride feeling crushed, but recovered by recess.
They went back to being best friends.
They spent the rest of their childhood building forts together in the woods that separated their backyards. Sledding on snow days, playing together in a land of make-believe, celebrating birthdays and taking family vacations together. Even when his family moved across the country in 7th grade, they continued to be best friends. Their families traveled together. They continued to grow up exploring the world together. Their whole relationship was one of adventures.
Finally, two years after they graduated college, he asked her that same question from second grade one more time.
Spoiler alert: this time, she didn’t say no
Marrying your best friend. What could be better? It’s been twenty years since Caroline answered Kevin on the school bus. But, this time, in front of their family and friends, standing at the altar together, she gave her most important “yes.”
We loved every minute of their Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North wedding. Caroline and Kevin tied in so many sweet aspects of their love story throughout the day, like Caroline’s letter to Kevin written on lined, ruled, school notebook paper, tucked inside their second grade yearbook. Maybe our favorite was an epic photo wall documenting all TWENTY YEARS of their friendship! It was such a beautiful day from start to finish. With the help of an incredible creative team led by Kayla from Some Like It Classic and Sarah with Sarah’s Garden, the Four Seasons lawn was transformed into a gorgeous dinner party under the stars, capped off with a magical sparkler ending for the most fairytale of days.
Caroline and Kevin, we just love you two so much! You and your family made US feel like family for the day. It was truly an honor to be a part of it. Thank you for letting us document your biggest milestone of the first 20 years of your relationship. We can’t wait to see what the next 20 bring! Just remember, love is friendship set on fire.
