Let’s meet our main characters…
Megan [35, manic pixie dream girl-type] was born and raised in LA. She spent her childhood attempting to read every book in her parents’ library, writing alone, performing musicals alone, and binge-watching Comedy Central alone. Basically solidifying her life-long position as a total nerd.
After graduating from USC (yes, this is a house divided situation) and not knowing what to do with her Literature degree, she started blogging for fun. Blogging miraculously turned into a career! And now she gets paid to dork out about offbeat lifestyles and awesome weddings!
Megan’s spent most of her adult life living behind a porn shop in West Hollywood, being in long-term relationships, writing, taking photos, not cooking, and being the happy precocious nerd she was born to be.
Mike [42, LA writer-type] grew up all over California. He spent his summers at Redwood House, losing his social skills and pretending he was on Endor. He tried not to be a dork, but juggling and making video movies with his friends didn’t help. After graduating UCLA (the best university in the world), he spent a Long Dark Period (his twenties) writing screenplays and transferring his debt between credit cards (the juggling skills paid off!).
Finally, he landed on a TV show called Burn Notice, blew up a wide variety of vehicles in Miami (mostly for the show), bought a nice house in LA, and went on a thousand first dates.
Mike’s friends and family were deeply skeptical that he would ever settle down, but he insisted that he was looking for love. He was right. This wedding is his chance to rub that fact in their faces.
