AN EAST BEACH LOVE STORY
Kelly and Brett met playing beach volleyball at East Beach in Santa Barbara, CA just yards away from where the wedding reception will be held. It was a summer day and Brett was playing on the court next to Kelly. It was love at first site, but they exchanged a few words and that was it. A week later, without any planning on either side, they were invited by a mutual friend to play in a co-ed beach volleyball tournament. They played together and had a blast. There was a co-ed tournament coming up in two weeks that was being put on by Brett's friend. Brett called and asked him to rig the tournament so that he could be put in the same pool as Kelly and get to spend the day with her. They were a team from the start and that has never changed. Over the last five years, they have continued to play beach volleyball together and co-parent three amazing kids!
