Tell us how you met and all about the proposal. I pretty much got set up and tricked into a blind date! Our best friends at the time were friends and thought we would be perfect for each other. It’s safe to say they were right!
The proposal was private and heartfelt. Ben is a private and quite person so anything else wouldn’t have been authentic. After the restaurant closed, he reminisced on our love story and asked for it to never end.
Describe your engagement session. We had our daughter with us so we had to keep it simple. But that is what we wanted; lifestyle photos.
What did you do on your first date? It took us about 3 months to go on a proper “first date” but I would honestly say ordering a ton of wine at the movie theater counts.
How has wedding planning been so far? It's been stressful since I’m miles and miles away from California but my wedding planner has been such a huge help!
Tell us what you're looking forward to most on the wedding day. I'm most looking forward to seeing Ben standing at the altar. I just hope he doesn’t cry because I would probably lose all control.
