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!



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!
