Arizona Real Weddings
How did you two meet or how did you propose?:
Kendra and I met through our mutual friends Katy and Mike. We went to lunch for our first “date” to YC’s Mongolian grill, of all places! In October 2013, I took Kendra to Hawaii to our little beach house that we rent nearly every year (Kendra has family on Oahu). On our second night, I went down to our private lagoon and wrote “Will you marry me?” in the sand. I took her down and she said “Hell yes” and also wrote it in the sand!
Were you happy with the venue?:
Bella Rose Estate was absolutely AMAZING! Chad and Leslie did an amazing job to make the happiest day in our life pure bliss!
Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception:
We didn't have a theme but our colors were silver/ivory and our whole wedding was very simple and intimate. Kendra and I are definitely not into the pomp and circumstance of formal events. We are very simple people.
What piece of advice would you give other couples planning their big day?:
Kendra and I truly live by the KISS principal, keep it simple stupid. The biggest thing that kept me calm, as I did most of the planning/negotiating, is to remember that this event is for you. You make it the way you want. But keeping our wedding small, intimate, and simple kept the stress to a minimum!
