Some of the best love stories start with coincidences.  You can call them coincidences--or fate--or serendipity.  But whatever you call it, its a moment in time when all the right elements come together and something magical comes from it.  

That magic happened when Andrea and Brendon met on Tender.  I know I know a lot of people meet on Tender but this was different.  Andrea was living in California and Brendon just happen to be on a trip in California.  They both had set their radius to 30 miles.  As Brendon stopped for lunch, Andrea traveled through the same area on a work trip.  Just like that they pinged and started talking!  If they hadn't both been there at the exact moment, it would have never happened.  That's what I call magic you guys.  

We met up on a hot July day in Lexington, Virginia where Brendon's Aunt lives to celebrate their love with a small ceremony.  Little did Andrea know that not only was her Dad going to surprise her, but Brendon had coordinated with Andrea's best friends from CA for them to show up as a surprise as well!  It was such an amazing moment to see the look of surprise and love on Andrea's face.  

The whole afternoon was full of jokes, fun stories, and defining what family truly is.  Andrea and Brendon, thank you so much for trusting me with your love story.  You both give so much love to those around you and your happiness has you both glowing.  Cheers to many more years!
