The Couple: Monica Escajeda and Shane Trimmer
Wedding Date: July 24, 2010
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We first met while working at Borders together in 2006. I worked the opening shift while he worked the evening shift. We often heard of one another mentioned through coworkers but it would be a full month before we would actually meet each other. Our first date felt so natural, as if I was meeting up with a friend I had known for years. We both knew instantly that we had met someone incredible. Not a day goes by that I don’t feel like the luckiest girl to have snagged myself such a great man!
What was the most amazing part of your day? First off, being able to share our special day with all of our closest friends and family. Second, complete amazement that we were able to pull off a wedding that took four weeks to plan. Third, being fortunate enough to book The Firehouse Restaurant and Kris Holland Photography!
What else would you like to share about your big day? Our wedding was beautiful! People still say that it was by far the most magical wedding they have ever been to. The Firehouse was the perfect location. The food was incredible and the special events coordinator at The Firehouse made sure everything went smoothly. I also couldn’t imagine a better photographer on one of the most important days of our lives. Kris Holland arrived calm and collected ready to capture every precious moment for us.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Don’t stress over the little things. Have fun in the planning stage because before you know it you are saying goodbye to your very last guest. Another thing, eat dinner before because you won’t have time to eat during the event. Sad but true.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Nope. Most amazing day of our lives, so far!
