Becky and Charlie are a romance that didn’t plan on happening. They were best friends that often insisted that they were “just friends”. Eventually, and happily, that friendship grew into something more as Becky says they decided to “explore the unthinkable; dating”. Moving from friendship to romance can be pretty tricky, but that is where knowing each other so well comes in handy.
Their first kiss is just one of many examples of why being so in sync makes all the difference.
The First Kiss
“Going into the night, I had no intention to kiss him. We weren’t even on a “date.” But as we were watching “The Guardian” together at my house, it became apparent he wanted to kiss me. I decided to make it easier on him and make it known I was okay with him kissing me. He says I made the first move when I touched his ear, but I knew we’d start aging if I waited for him to do anything. He went in for the first kiss for sure….but don’t ask him about it ;)”
While being in love was not in their original plans together, Charlie certainly had big plans to make Becky his wife. After a few things fell through and Charlie could not wait another day, he made reservations at Cecada in LA to set the mood. At the end of the romantic meal, they ordered dessert. Becky had asked for a small chocolate cake, but was instead presented with a large platter with an assortment of deserts and a chocolate heart swirled on the plate. Charlie, nervous and slightly mischievous, let Becky sample some of the desserts until she discovered a little white box hidden in the mix.
“I was so excited when I saw it and he was equally as nervous. He got on one knee and I couldn’t tell you what he said, but I do know I said “yes!”
Their Engagement Photo Shoot
Because they both love sports (can you tell?) and are playful in nature, they decided to have a two part engagement shoot; one being more traditional and the second…with a little bit of spunk and a slam dunk.
Their photographer for their engagements and wedding photos was Double Take Photography.
Their relationship is a perfect example of how wonderful it is to find someone whom you can be yourself with.
