Beauty & Brains

Kelly and Zef met while Kelly was finishing Med school and Zef was finishing his PHD in Molecular Science at the University of Irvine. The two met with friends one night while out on the town at the local schools pub and were instantly smitten. Last fall, while one a hiking trip, Zef got down on one knee and asked Kelly to marry him, her answer was a thumbs up.

They will be married at the Mission Basilica in San Juan Capistrano June 9th with a reception at the Villa, San Juan Capistrano to follow! 

Thank you again to Jessie Schultz Photography for the lovely photos and Kelly’s mom Lila for this wonderful video of their lives together!
