Location: Monte Verde Inn | Foresthill, California
Adventure. That is the word that comes to mind when I think of Ali & Matt. Their lives, their love, and their connection all revolve around that one word. Their story began in way not uncommon in this day of age, online---but the incredibly ironic part of their meeting was that it was on "Plenty of Fish" and she worked for the Monterey Bay Aquarium and he is in natural resource protection and once managed a fish shop. I mean you guys, I can't make this stuff up---it really is that cool of a coincidence!
Throughout their relationship, they have always shared a love of back packing, being in the great outdoors, exploring our beautiful country side by side. It was only natural that when planning their honeymoon, they decided to do just that. I know these two are enjoying and epic first adventure together as I type this very post. Ali & Matt, I know that your lives will be filled with amazing stories, places you will visit and lives well lived. Thank you so much for inviting us to document the first day of your forever and we can't wait to see you when you return in a few weeks! xo
