They met in college. In the days of newfound freedom and dorm life, in the days of late nights and early mornings. They were just friends.

Andrea was a nursing student, and Cody was an athlete. He always had his eye on her, but when Andrea left their school in Washington to pursue a prestigious nursing program in Arizona, it just seemed like fate had other plans for them. Because as soon as he graduated, his baseball career took him to the very place where she was. Took him right to the heart of the desert. Took him right back to her.

And before they knew it, they had picked up right where they left off. They fell hard and fast for each other, and even though Cody’s travel schedule with the Atlanta Braves was going to be tough, they committed to doing life together on opposite ends of the country. Their love was magnetic. They were best friends, and there was nothing, not even thousands of miles, that could separate them.

The two strolled hand-in-hand along the shore line.

They relished the time they had together, and made every effort to see each other as often as they could. On New Years, Cody brought Andrea on a family vacation to the beach, and as the two strolled hand-in-hand along the shore line, he

paused as he spotted something in the distance. He pointed it out her, suggesting he might’ve seen some dolphins, but when she turned around what she saw was his parents and her parents holding a homemade sign: Will you marry me?

Eleven months later, there she was, a beautiful, joyful bride marrying her sweet, kind-hearted groom — and what a true honor and pleasure it was to be the ones to capture it. Andrea and Cody, even though we’ve only seen each other a few times and you live so far away, we feel so close to you. To your story. Two hard-working people who’ve faced and fought adversity in pursuit of big, scary dreams and come out the other side. Together and stronger than ever. Your love is the inspiring kind, the look-up-to kind, the we-want-that-too kind, a true testament to what happens when two people become something that easily shines but isn’t easily broken: a three strand cord.

We loved everything about your Country Club at DC Ranch wedding. How could we not? With the incomparable Jenn Thye from Imoni Events producing the event and the inspired floral design of Petal Pusher, it was destined for success… just like you two. Every single one of these images has our heart and soul. We hope that you love them as much as we do. Which is more than just a little. It’s a whole lot. We’re already counting down the days to Spring Training 2016 when we can see you guys again. For you, we’ll even be Mariner fans for the day, as long as we can get matching Martin jerseys 😉
