Tell us a little about you and your beloved:  Dan and I met in college at Stanislaus State in Turlock. Dan is a city boy from San Bruno, and I am a country girl from Linden. We both have fun personalities and are outgoing — when we first met, we just clicked.
We had been together for eight years when he decided to take me, along with some friends, to Northstar-at-Tahoe for the weekend. After a fun day of playing in the snow, Dan got down on one knee and proposed to me! I had no idea…it was such a happy surprise!!!
What was the most amazing part of your day?  Having all of our friends and family celebrating our special day with us was amazing.
From my photographer, florist, cake, etc…everything was completely amazing. The venue was BEAUTIFUL and exactly what Dan and I wanted. Angelina’s did a wonderful job with the catering and bartending all night for us!
What else would you like to share about your big day?  My dad had a tear jerker of a toast for Dan and me. Also, our wedding party did a roast on us. We want to shout out a special thanks to Pete for his hysterical roast! Also, we are so thankful to each have such wonderful parents who support and love us so much. The whole day wouldn’t have been possible without them.
