How did you meet?

We met through a mutual friend. Neither of us really excited for a set-up and resisting for a few months. Finally, we were both at the same BBQ and we started talking and hit it off. Later, my friend asked me my thoughts and I said, “if he calls me, I’ll go out with him”. The next day, he called and we went out a few days after. A few months later, we were living together and traveling and working together!

 

The Proposal

Happened at Social Costa Mesa. His brother, Andrew, is the owner and had a hand in setting up the proposal. We were all there on NYE and at midnight, he disappeared. A few seconds later, I see on the monitor, a video montage of everything we’ve done together. H was down on one knee with 100 roses and asked me to marry him.

Inspiration of Wedding Colors

I love rustic and romantic. Pelican Hill was our backdrop… it doesn’t get any more romantic than that! I told Melissa (Flowers by Cina) that I wanted purples with texture and greens. She flawlessly brought my vision to life. She is truly talented.

 

Planning Process

I hired Kelsey Connelly Events to help me coordinate the big day. Between her, Melissa and myself, we pulled off a flawless day!

 

Moments

Both Brian and myself ended up gifting each other almost the same exact gift, just in different mediums. Our wedding song was ‘My Best Friend’ by Tim McGraw. I put a few lyrics on some custom cufflinks for him, while he created a logo for our day and printed the lyrics and framed them!
