The Couple: Diana & Rodion
Wedding Date: August 4, 2012
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Our families were friends since we were little, so we knew each other for a while. Our families lost contact later and then we happened to spot each other at a church that my family had started going to about 5 years ago. We ended up attending the same college, and he would walk me to class and things just rolled on from there. Two years later we were planning our wedding!
What was the most amazing part of your day? The first look was definitely the most amazing part of the day. I wanted to keep my dress and look a surprise until the wedding day and his reaction was priceless and oh so worth it! Sweetest memory.
