From the bride, Kristen: Our story began in high school. Not quite a Hollywood story, but nonetheless, I got to marry my high school sweetheart. Chance and I met when we were freshmen in high school. It wasn’t until two years later that we realized our friendship was a little more than we expected. We realize it’s a bit unusual to marry your “first love,” but, for us, it just worked. He has been my best friend since, and I do not know that anyone can make me laugh like he can. Our relationship has always been a little bit spontaneous, and we never felt the need or want to have a traditional wedding, which is why we decided to elope.
