Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal. We met at the barbershop, introduced to one another by mutual friends. Now Gary is the only barber that touches my head!
Describe your engagement session. We wanted to be ourselves and comfortable, so we went shopping together – and coincidently ended up with similar outfits.
What did you do on your first date? We went to a famous restaurant in Tampa called Ruth Chris. We both enjoy great food, but we also wanted the calm ambiance the restaurant had to offer so we can continue to get to know one another.
What’s your favorite thing to do as a couple? Traveling, exploring new cities, cultures and of course beaches! However, we also love to be snuggled up in bed watching movies or reading books
How has wedding planning been so far? It has had its challenges but it has also allowed us to lean on each other even more. We know now more than ever that anything great comes with difficulties.
Tell us what you’re looking forward to most on the wedding day. We’re
excited to see everything we’ve been planning all these months to come into full effect and see our families come together to celebrate our love and our union. We just want to have an awesome day. I can’t wait to see my husband at the alter waiting for me to steal his last name, and to have my girls at my side! It’s a blessing to have come to this place to find love in someone who is just like you!
