Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Corey and Leann met through friends. Although they had each been friends with this couple individually for many years, it was perfect timing when they finally met and they immediately started dating. The proposal took place at a bed and breakfast in Napa on the private porch of the cottage. It was a complete surprise because the trip to Napa was for Leann’s birthday so a proposal was completely unexpected! It was a private and beautiful moment between the couple that brought many tears of joy. Our engagement was a little over a year long and during that time we grew individually and as a couple. We love to explore, travel and do any activity that includes the outdoors. And we are so excited to continue to explore for many more years together.

What was the most amazing part of your day? The whole ceremony and especially our personal vows to eachother.

What else would you like to share about your big day? We also loved the toasts and dancing at the reception with everyone.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Remember when things get stressful, at the end of the day you will be married to your best friend and that is all that matters. Also, pre-marital counseling made the engagement period an amazing way to grow as a couple and start off the marriage strong.

Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? No
