Raquel + Brendan met on Tinder (yay modern technology!) and went on their first date on August 11th, 2017 and have been inseparable ever since. You know that feeling when you truly believe you’ve known each other for ages? Yeah… that happened instantly. They love being around each and they are not ashamed to say, they love each other quirkiness! They enjoy traveling, going to the movies, trying new places to eat, cooking together, and relaxing at home together.


Brendan made the bold move of proposing to Raquel at the ever romantic Ca’ D’Zan Museum in Sarasota, Florida. He even bought out the tour so he could propose in the Great Hall. So selecting Powel Crosley Estate was no brainer as it resembles the Ca’ D’Zan Museum where Brendan proposed. Their wedding day was romantic and elegant yet non-traditional. The classic neutral colors with the boldness and pop of burgundy and fuchsia were pure (beautiful) drama.
