Beth & Kenny in San Francisco, CA
High school sweethearts Beth Brenneman and Kenny Fluharty met their freshman year. After Kenny proposed on a Maui vacation many years later, the couple planned a long engagement. Beth explains, "My sister got engaged three weeks before us and was planning on a fall wedding. I didn't want to rain on her parade, and thought, 'We've already waited this long -- what's another year and a half?'"

The extra time gave the twosome plenty of leeway when it came to planning their San Francisco nuptials. "We definitely wanted to get married in San Francisco, since that was the only place that we lived in together during the 15 years we'd dated," Beth says. Though their celebration was formal—it was at The Ritz-Carlton, after all -- Beth and Kenny imbued it with a sense of playfulness and fun that made it truly unforgettable.
