Liz’s mom, along with a mutual friend, arranged a blind date for Liz and Cory to meet at a coffee shop called “It’s a Grind” in Mesa. The two immediately hit it off and coffee turned into lunch, neither wanted the date to end! Cory also proposed to Liz at the same coffee shop where their love story began!
“Regency Garden was AMAZING,” the two raved! “It was gorgeous and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Elements of the venue definitely reminded us of our favorite vacation spot, Disneyland, which was a major plus!”
Liz and Cory used black, white, silver, and light pink accents throughout their wedding to beautifully compliment the Disney inspired elements sprinkled throughout! Their head table showcased a scrabble sign that read “Mr. and Mrs. Todd,” inspired by their favorite attraction to ride together, “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.” Accompanied with mouse ears for their next trip and Mickey mints at each table as a treat for their guests!
Liz’s advice to couples planning their wedding: “Everything will be fine! Make lists, prioritize them, and ask for help when you need it. Be sure to appreciate those who help you during the planning. Make the boring stuff (like stuffing and licking invitation envelopes) into a silly, romantic date night with your fiancé—it makes it so much more fun! Don’t make choices for anybody else, choose what feels right for you as a couple and you can’t go wrong. Be present during your big day and enjoy every little moment, because it goes by in the blink of an eye!”
