When you know, you know. That’s how Caitlin Watson and Tanner Boyes characterize the nine months between meeting and marrying. The bride and groom both grew up in San Clemente, California. She was friends with Tanner’s older brother, but because of a small age gap, she never went to school with her future husband. They went away to colleges in different states. It wasn’t their time to meet. But then it was 2012 and there was Facebook.
Caitlin clicked the “you might know them” button on the social media site and befriended Tanner. He accepted, they messaged, and the connection was made. It flourished, and on July 20, 2013, they made it more than “Facebook official,” becoming husband and wife in their hometown, bringing their creativity to the forefront with a plethora of personalized and DIY details.
