When I asked her sister how they had met, she answered…”Travis traveled through valleys and mountains to be with Karisa.” This was so true. They have a story of love found and love conquered. Travis drove from his hometown of Michigan to Long Beach, California to be with his soul mate and they have been together ever since. As they day progressed, I even heard about Travis’ first attempt at wooing his true love. He called her best friend to ask what Karisa’s favorite flowers were (how sweet is that!) and like the true romantic Travis is, he sent her favorite flowers to her on Valentine’s Day (awww!).
I spent the day with the cute pair playing around The Westin in Long Beach. I love when my couples have awesome stories about how they ended up being together. The journey is the best part (next to the celebration, of course!). You can’t help but have this ear-to-ear goofy smile on your face (well, my face) when you’re with these two. I’m so happy for them, these two long distance love birds…and now it’s official! Congratulations you two…you truly are soul mates.
