How did you two meet or how did he propose?:
We met at Best Buy, I was a new hire and he was training me. We got engaged at the Boulders. Rick said he wanted to take a picture of me, so I walked over by the window and when I turned around he was on one knee. He had hidden the ring box in our camera case.
Were you happy with the venue?:
We absolutely loved the venue. It has so much natural beauty. We loved the fact that it was away from the city. The sunset and night skies were absolutely amazing.
Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception:
We wanted our wedding to be beautiful and classic. We picked navy blue and different shades of coral for our colors. Our tables had an ivory table cloth and a navy blue runner. There were antique silver platters in the middle of each table with lots of candles and some coral flowers for a pop of color.
What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day?
My piece of advice would be don't dwell on little imperfections and take the whole day in. Remember what that day is for, it's to celebrate spending the rest of your life with your best friend!
