Annie and Nino’s story began 12 years before their perfect wedding day on a crisp, clear fall day at a rustic farm in the mountains of Utah in 2019. As written on their “Walk Our Story” timeline dotting the side of the old, weathered barn that would host their epic reception party, Annie and Nino first met in the fall of 2007 at a bonfire on the beach in Carmel, California. They were kids at the time, he 14 and she 13. A few months later, as 2007 neared an end, Annie texted Nino to wish him a happy birthday and as they wrote it, “That text was the start of what became the love of a lifetime.”
As their guests walked the length of that old, weather wall, they marveled over all Annie and Nino have done and accomplished together since. That wall at Kelly Creek Farm was covered in 12 years of collective love, loss and memories created as one. On that day Annie and Nino continued on that long journey, joining together in front of all their family and friends as husband and wife. As Annie’s father walked her down the aisle, Nino wept at the sight of his beautiful bride. They stood together in the glimmering sun as a light breeze rustled through the trees, showering them in falling leaves and recited their vows to one another, pledging to love one another as much for the rest of their lives as they did on that day.
The love between them was obvious and palpable, as strong and loving now as it was 12 years ago. Annie and Nino are still young, but already their relationship has stood the test of time. This couple shares a rare type of love and no doubt, that timeline on the old, weathered wall will continue on as they age adding countless more memories … a lifetime of love!
