The slideshow that played at our wedding and introduced the bridal party is now online. Watch it here!
The "Photos" page is constantly
being updated with shots taken throughout the wedding, so make sure
you visit that page often to see the latest photographs.
We have also started a photo journal where Cheyanne takes a photograph
everyday of something that reminds her of her new married life. It
can be found at www.ourfirstyear.net.
The site is updated daily, and the photos can be commented on, so
there will always be something new on the site. Check it out!
If you took photos on your own camera over the course of the day,
and have an online gallery that you would like to share with the rest
of our guests, please send us a link. We'll post it on our website
for everyone to see when we return. So, we're off to enjoy Mexico,
but in the meantime, enjoy the photo booth photos. Thanks again everyone!!
Cheyanne Holton and Andy Sammons met in 2001 during their first year
of college at UC San Diego. They were living in the same residence
halls in Marshall College.
Andy noticed Cheyanne walking around campus all the time. He knew
that in between classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays he would see her
walking around Muir College, although he didn’t know her name,
or that she lived in the same dorms as he did. He started putting
the pieces together, when he saw her walking out of a DOC lecture
hall. DOC (Dimensions of Culture) was a core class for Marshall students,
so he knew that she was in the same college as him. He pretended to
wait for his friend who was in the same class, so he could see her
three times a week as she left class.
Cheyanne had seen Andy for the first time while she was studying on
“The Hump” (a grassy area in the Marshall Res Halls where
everyone hung out). He hopped over his patio fence, with his patchy
dyed hair, and skateboarded off. Cheyanne thought he was super cute
and pretty cool looking. She would see him randomly skateboarding
around campus and whenever she'd hear a skateboard she would turn
to see if it was him.
Andy’s roommate, a kind of awkward UCSD guy, came back to the
suite one day professing about this girl who he was going to be studying
math with. The suite asked him questions about her, and when he said
her name was “Cheyenne”, we couldn’t help but to
make the obvious city capital joke. The next day, he brought her back
to our suite to study, and Andy was shocked to realize that this “Cheyenne”
girl was the girl that he had being seeing around campus for the past
few months. He quickly hid in his room with the door closed and played
guitar, ignoring her completely, but hoping that she was still outside,
hearing him play.
The “official” first meeting occurred on a mutual friends
birthday. Andy was a bit shy, so Cheyanne had to make the first move
by asking, “So where are you from?” Later that night,
while Andy was in Cheyanne’s suite, he gave her roommate his
IM screenname: l3ofa. So Bgonky3 and l3ofa began chatting over IM,
since they were both too nervous to talk in person. They would spend
hours typing back and forth even though they were only 300ft apart.
After breaking the ice over IM, they began hanging out as friends.
They found out that they had both had a crush on each other. Which
eventually turned into more, when Cheyanne gave Andy mono.
Their next 3 years at school were spent together, playing Ultimate
Frisbee for the school teams, traveling around the country for tournaments,
coming up with awesome costumes for themed parties, cruisin’
around PB and making each other happy. After UCSD, Cheyanne moved
back home to Anaheim to go to school at the Fashion Institute of Design
and Merchandising in LA. Andy stayed in San Diego for the year until
he realized he couldn’t spend one more day without Cheyanne
and he moved up to the OC to be with her.
Cheyanne is now the Art Director for Jonathan Martin, a clothing company
in downtown Los Angeles. Andy is working as a freelance web designer
and graphic artist, using his website www.tincanstudios.com.
