Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met seven years ago in Sacramento and have been inseparable ever since. He was a country boy and I was a city girl, and he has done his best to make me a country girl… but a girl needs a mall or at least Internet access. Knowing that I still live to be a princess he took me on a secret trip to the magical world of Disneyland where under the winter wonderland of fireworks he proposed to me. We have always had the same goals and dreams in life, and marriage was just the beginning of our next adventure and to our happily ever after.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Saying I do… and being surrounded by loved ones and friends… and how Kelly, Doug and Annette from Monte Verde Inn made our dream wedding come to life while making the whole day seam effortless.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Enjoy it… Don’t sweat the small stuff… Make sure you have the best people in place to take on every task so that you can just cherish every moment of the day that is about you and your significant other.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Don’t settle and rush into things. Take the planning process slowly and make sure you are 100 percent sure of your choices. Take time to check your options and reviews/references. Make sure you choose vendors that know the wedding site well so that they know the scale, layout and timing to bring everything together.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? We had a 70 degree day in November, and the wedding was everything we dreamed of and more. We would have not changed a thing… We consider ourselves very lucky!
