Our Story

After almost 6 years together --it's time we make this official.

We met in Vegas- as we ALL know- what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas... so we decided we would give our blooming attraction a chance. Enjoying our long distance relationship from LA-SF for a few years, until Kirk made the move up to San Francisco beginning of our lives under one roof.

As we grew older our priorities began to shift . We felt a strong need to be closer to family and friends and after 4 years living together in SF we decided to move to San Clemente. ((Woah)) And wouldn't you know.. not long after that Mr.Watson decided to put a ring on it!

So here we are, fixing to host one grand party in the middle of the magical Santa Lucia Wildlife Preserve, home to Paradise - beneath a FULL MOON- so that we may celebrate our love with those closest to our hearts.
