The Couple: Tania & Raul
Wedding Date: September 29, 2018
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met in a church youth group. We dated from High School through colllege for a total of 7 years. Both of us are Chico State grads. We waited until we were both able to get our careers started. The proposal occurred on a sunny day that we went horseback riding on the beach. It was near Tania’s birthday, so she had no idea. The planning of the wedding was a little chaotic since we left many things towards the end, but once family started arriving from out of state everything got better,
What was the most amazing part of your day? Seeing each other for the first time in the altar and seeing all our loved ones.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Dance, drink, and enjoy the company of all of your loved ones.

Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out that we missed in the above questions? Bartender, Alvey Jamezcua. They were very professional and did an splendid job with 200+ guests.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Have someone in charge of getting breakfast for all your bridesmaids as you will start getting ready for your big day very early. Do not change anything in your skin care routine days before the wedding.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? We would have started the ceremony earlier. We didn’t enough time to take pictures since we needed to start the party.
