Jennifer Yamada & Aulstin Gardiner

When Aulstin Gardiner recreated his and Jennifer Yamada’s first date on their one-year anniversary, Jennifer knew there would be surprises. Like the scrapbook Aulstin gave her, the second-to-last page of which read, “Life is a story, with a big plot twist to come.” The next page was blank—a placeholder for an engagement photo. Suddenly, Aulstin was on one knee, and on February 28, 2015, at Thistle Springs Ranch, the couple began their next big chapter together by saying “I do.”
