Anthony and Sarah met in school, at the Art Institute of California in Santa Monica. They had the same circle of friends, but somehow managed not to meet each other for three months. Then, late one night at the tail end of a party, Sarah showed up and Anthony was smitten. A week into dating, Anthony asked her to marry him to which she promptly said "no." After 3 ½ years of asking, Sarah finally said yes!
January 31st is Sarah's grandparents' wedding anniversary. They thought it'd be a nice tribute to have the same wedding day since they are still married after more than fifty years. They wanted to keep things relatively low key, so they only invited a selected group of close friends.

Sarah and Anthony wanted to get married outside, and the botanical gardens with it's natural beauty and setting seemed like the perfect place.

The florist came highly recommended and could do the succulent bouquet that Sarah wanted. The wattle in the bouquet is an Australian plant and yellow is her favorite color.

Says Sarah about the talent of photographer Rebecca Wilkowski: "Rebecca is awesome and sooooo talented!!! We just loved her great composition and lighting skills. She captured the moments that were the most important and memorable. Within a couple hours of meeting everyone, Rebecca was able to capture all of their little nuances, expressions and mannerisms that make each of them so special. . . ."
