Spencer & Linda

Sara
Sara started out dreaming about Monet while learning to dodge line drives and linebackers with long camera lenses in tow. Her skills were born at SF State and refined amid cleats and referees. Her unwavering commitment to GPS may drive her into a river (The Office, anyone?) and friends says she's like a real-life Seinfeld episode with her "Kramer-entrances" and her "Elaine-dancing". Call her a crazy artist; continually experimenting with variations of light, color, and movement. She is fiercely driven to stretch artistic boundaries at every turn. We think there's a method to her madness, and the secret may just be those sparkle TOMS. Learn more about Sara or the rest of the team

It's always so beautiful to me when love comes full circle. Spencer and Linda were the best man and maid of honor at Brendon and Sarah's wedding in 2013. Now three years later, I am so thrilled to be capturing their own wedding day. The story of how they met is any girls' dream come true. Seriously, they could not be more adorable. Linda shared it with us below: 
 
"Spencer's band Panic! At the Disco was playing a show at The Willtern in Los Angeles in June 2011. I met Sarah Urie (now wife of Brendon Urie) backstage that night through mutual friends. I met everyone in the band that night EXCEPT for Spencer (he was busy talking to people at the label). A couple months later, I saw a house I thought would be nice to live in, but it was too big for just me; Sarah said Spencer wanted to move out of his house in the Valley and over to the West Side, so she suggested we live together as roommates. He and I sent each other emails telling the other about ourselves, and we agreed to meet up to go see the house. We ended up not liking the place, and the next day he left for tour. A couple months later, while having dinner with Sarah, she said, 'The guys got back from tour last night, and their bodyguard said Spencer kept talking about some girl named Linda.' I told Sarah that was funny because I had a dream about Spencer the night before. She told Spencer, and he said, "If she's dreaming about me, then I have a chance!" He texted me at 2am asking if I remembered him, and we ended up talking for five hours until I had to leave for work. We went out on our first date later that week, and he asked me to move in with him two months later. We've been together for nearly five years now!"

"I had been staring at this vintage emerald ring from Berganza in London for about two years. One day in January 2015 I went to look at it online, and it was gone. I was so sad, and Spencer pretended he was bummed about it ("Awww, that's too bad."). A few weeks later he flew me to San Francisco for my birthday (I had never been). The night before we left, he went outside to take a call, which I later learned was him asking my Dad if he could ask me to marry him. We arrived in San Francisco, dropped our things off at the hotel, and immediately went exploring. After walking around for a few hours, we ended up on Pier 39 with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. No one else was around, so he asked me to face the bridge so he could get a picture of me looking up at it. When I turned around, he was down on one knee holding a closed little black box. He said, "I love you so much. You are my best friend, and I would love to spend the rest of my life with you. And I wanted to know if you would marry me?" I managed to say, 'YES!' through tears, and when I hugged him, he said, 'I have to show you the ring!' He opened the box, and it was the emerald ring from 1935 that I had loved for years."
