By  0 Comments

Tied the Knot: September 7, 2019

Samantha Golston, 27, grew up Valley Springs, California, and went to Calaveras High School. She earned a degree in political science at University of Nevada, Reno, and now works as a paralegal for a law firm. “I enjoy staying active and spending time with my friends and family,” she shares. “I was lucky enough to find a man who shares my values and is up for any adventure!” 

Kyle Gaskin, 29, grew up in Moraga, California, and went to Campolindo High School. “I eventually went on to the University of Mississippi, where I received a degree in criminal justice,” he notes. “Samantha and I now live in Fairfield, California, and I work as a police officer in Oakland. In my spare time I’m an avid hunter and enjoy any outdoor sport. I was lucky enough to find a woman who I can share my passions with.”  

Samantha and Kyle met in Reno when she was in college. “I was out at a bar with my friends and Kyle was there with his,” she remembers. “When I saw him trying to leave the dance floor, I hopped in front of him and started showing off my dance moves. Kyle was hooked! He had just graduated the police academy and he would drive up every weekend from the Bay Area to see me.” 

Kyle has always been a Harley Davidson rider, and Samantha started riding with him. “Kyle and I planned a Sunday motorcycle ride to Muir Beach,” she smiles. “When we arrived, we walked down to the lookout point where he got down on one knee and had photographers waiting to capture the moment.”

The blissful couple tied the knot September 7, 2019. “The 185 guests were family, close friends and people who have shaped and influenced us to be the people we are today—teachers, coaches and other role models,” the couple agrees. 

“Kyle and I are going to Sandals Ochi Jamaica in January,” Samantha shares. “I have always wanted take an all-inclusive vacation. My brother and sister-in-law tried this particular one and gave it five stars, so I was hooked!”
