Same-sex wedding at UC Davis


Sometimes people come into your life and better it. I believe that Scott and Dave are amongst those kind of people.

Even though they worked within a block from one another, it took the internet to bring them together. It wasn’t long after they began dating when they realized they were, and I quote, “perfect foils” for each other. Dave told Scott that they had to wait 3 years before they were able to get married because that was a “respectable” amount of time to be together before making such a huge commitment. Hey, I agree! 🙂

I have so much love for these two guys and I wish them all the best for what their future has in store. Here’s a few favorites from their wedding day.

The ceremony took place in a grove of Olive trees at UC Davis and was filled with kind and encouraging words from both sets of parents.

Followed by vows that they wrote for one another.

I think once Scott started choking up on his, it was hard for me to keep it together.

But Dave was all smiles and so excited to spend his life with Scott.
