The Couple: Valerie & Sean
Wedding Date: September 29, 2012
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We were introduced through mutual friends during the summer of 2009 in Sacramento. We were inseparable ever sense that first meeting! After dating for 3 years, Sean proposed to me on a beautiful beach in Mendocino.
We are now happier than ever, living in Carmichael with our new little puppy Jessie. We recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary- that first year sure does go by quick!
What was the most amazing part of your day: Just seeing everything that we had planned for come together and be brought to life. It was amazing to spend the best day of our lives with all of our closest friends and family.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? We were engaged for a little over a year, so it was great to be able to have all of that time to plan our wedding. Spacing it out helped us from getting overwhelmed! My advice would be to relax as much as you can the few days before the wedding, and especially the day of! Do not spend time worrying about every little detail, because it will all come together in the end. If something goes wrong, no one will notice. And if they do, you will laugh about it later on.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? We honestly would not change a thing!
