Traci + Brendan | July 21, 2018 | Glen Annie Golf Club


“They say that when you find love, you’ll know. It will hit you hard like a fire truck on duty, like freshly made coffee on an eager tongue, like a sudden downpour just as you’re leaving the building.”


Traci + Brendan met working for the same recruiting firm.  They both were so shy to make the first move, until a co-worker invited them out to lunch with margaritas! After some liquid courage, they exchanged numbers, danced the night away that following Saturday and the rest is history!  Fast forward 9 months and Brendan popped the question!

Traci says:

“We decided to end the work day early on a Friday and go out for a nice lunch at our old stomping ground, The Strand House in Manhattan Beach (my hometown). Ever since we started dating, it was tradition to walk off the food/drinks and head to the pier to check out the waves since Brendan’s a big surfer. We got about halfway down the pier when Brendan asked me to grab his floss out of his pocket (he ALWAYS has it on him and it’s something I tease him about). I pulled the ring out of his pocket as he got down on one knee. Of course I said YES and then we went back to our favorite restaurant to celebrate with some champs!”
