They say when you know, you know. And when Sara and Adam first met in their Reagan High School geometry class, they knew.

Just this past June, the happy pair celebrated their longtime love at a dreamy beach wedding, with the help of Susan from HoneyFitz Events. Scroll on to read more of their love story and to get a glimpse of their gorgeous big day:

After their real life math class meet cute, Adam and Sara’s first date was on Valentine’s Day 2008. They were pretty much inseparable from the start, and by April, they had made things “official.” At just 15 and 17 years old, they knew they were in it for the long haul.

When it came time for college, Adam and Sara made the difficult decision to tough out long distance so that they could both attend their dream schools — with Adam heading to Texas Christian University, and Sara to the University of Southern California. Each day they were apart, Sara wore the promise ring that Adam gave her to signify “their eventual marriage,” knowing they would do whatever it takes to be together again.

Through three years of constant Skyping and frequent visits between Ft. Worth and LA, their love only grew stronger. And finally, fate brought them back together in Southern California, when Adam landed his dream job with the Anaheim Ducks and Sara was accepted into a Masters program at USC.

After seven years, the pair moved in together and Adam knew it was time to pop the question. One Sunday morning, he surprised his bride-to-be, standing beside a display of fruit, mimosas, Mickey Mouse pancakes, and a blue Tiffany’s box like Sara had always dreamed of. They celebrated Sara’s “yes” literally in the clouds, on a romantic hot air balloon ride over Orange County.

Adam and Sara were married at the stunning Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California, in a beautiful ceremony at the resort’s Botanical Gardens overlooking the ocean. Later that evening, guests danced the night away at Club 19.

The couple’s color palette consisted of soft pinks, whites, creams, and gold accents. And they brought their love of the water to the celebration with sand dollars and sea shells!
