Natalina and Tony have one of my favorite “how we met stories.” These two were in the middle of their busy work weeks. Natalina being a sales tycoon for tech companies (maybe not a tycoon, but she pretty much kicks-ass at sales)… And Tony is sneaking his way into everyone’s lives by being an engineer for Apple (the coolest kids all have Apple products! ;D). One day Natalina was sitting at the bar in Outback steakhouse and saw a dapper gentleman sitting just down from her. She asked him about the new iPhone coming out, and BOOM! They just started chatting… and chatting… and chatting! After an hour they both realized they forgot to order food and had to leave back to work. Whoops… So much for lunch! They exchanged numbers and the rest is history. For this reason I’m going to start eating solo status down at Outback. You’ll see my check-ins on FB. You’ve been warned!
Their wedding was down at Carmel Valley Ranch, which is an insanely gorgeous place. I’m totally blown away by the crazy vacation destinations just around the corner from our Bay Area homes. People come from all over the country to visit this area, and we’ve got it just chillin in our back yards. Grab your keys… clear your Saturday… go down there. Seriously. I can hear it saying, “Hey! Hey you! I’m here… come get me!” Yes. I. Will! Please and thank you. Just as soon as wedding season is over. 😉
