As the two sweetest and smartest cookies around, the verdict is no surprise: Christie and Andrew win the adorable prize! They met on the first day of law school at USF in 2007. Not long after, Andrew began reserving a seat for Christie next to him in class. With these two working together, puzzling legal concepts (remember the "rule against perpetuities"?) were unraveled with the ease of kittens chasing a ball of yarn. When their eyes grew tired of squinting at hornbooks and treatises, no doubt they would look up and rest their eyes on each other for a much needed reprieve. The benefits of having a cute study buddy!
We started their engagement photo session with a visit to USF for a lovely reunion, running around the green campus lawn, and sitting down in Kendrick Hall's foyer to read the USF law journal. Coincidentally, just after Sam was reminiscing about the legal writing class they shared together, their professor strolled into the room, and we got to let her in on the story of their romance too. (She joked that her class was so boring that the setting provided the perfect relief for a romance.)
Afterward, we headed to San Francisco's Ocean Beach, where it seemed like the whole city was out working on their tans, walking their dogs, and surfing the waves. Andrew and Christie had fun revisiting the place where he proposed on the beach, and we got some great images of them walking hand in hand on the shore.
Christie + Andrew, you two are so wonderful! We had such a great time hanging out with you, remembering our law school days, and talking about your upcoming wedding this summer!! You are so perfect for each other, and we couldn't be happier for you!
