Congratulations to Kristin and Brian, married May 13th at The Citizen Hotel! Kristin and Brian technically met in high school (him: a freshman / her: a senior), but were reacquainted a few years later over drinks at a bar. In Kristin's words, "Our first date we went on a long drive where I discovered he was more than just a pretty face."

Five months later, Brian proposed to Kristin in prison. Well, sort of. He proposed to her on Alcatraz, with a gorgeous view of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge behind them. It was a fitting scene, seeing as how they both share a dark sense of humor. After all, they got married on Friday the 13th!

The best part of their wedding day? Sneaking away to enjoy a few Kobe sliders before the reception began. Kristin took one bite of her slider and her dress RIPPED all the way up the back. Beth and Sarah (the photographers) ran to go get help, leaving Kristin and Brian completely alone, laughing hysterically.

In Kristin's words, "We looked at each other, and even though my dress was ripped up the back and my Spanx were showing, we started laughing. We were completely alone and it was super quiet and we looked at each other and realized that we were MARRIED. It felt like the universe's way of giving us a quiet moment alone together to just take it all in! I will always remember that moment alone with Brian."

We loved hearing Kristin's reaction to what most brides probably would have cried over (and rightfully so!). Luckily, Matt of Extreme Productions swept in as Wedding Superhero and saved the day with his mad sewing abilities.

Thank you Kristin for sharing your special day with us, and thank you to Beth for these amazing photos!
