Tell us a little about you and your beloved:  We met during our first year at UC Davis.  We were lucky enough to be in the same dorm — I’m from the San Jose area and Michael’s from Bakersfield.  Little did we know, the connection that we made our freshman year would last eight years plus, with many more to come!

What was the most amazing part of your day?:   We loved bringing our very different families together to help us celebrate along with our close friends. It was a real big party!

What else would you like to share about your big day?: Our big day really wouldn’t have gone as well as it did had we not had the help of our family and friends. We are truly blessed.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now?:  Plan as much as you can as early as you can — time really crept up on us. A lot of things can be started at soon as your have your venue. Trust me, it will be less stressful when you don’t have as much on your plate during the last couple of months!

Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance?:  I wish we had had more time to dance with everyone!!!
