Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met in college at Chico State. He completely shocked me. He knew where to trick me, asking me to grab food. Instead he romantically took me to a cliff in Del Mar San Diego and proposed.

The planning of the wedding in the beginning was bitter sweet since we moved a month ago to the opposite sides of California and it’s HARD planning a wedding in Nor Cal when your in So Cal. ( I feel for destination weddings)

What was the most amazing part of your day? My spouse, seeing him at the altar, the true definition of “being the only ones in the room”.

What else would you like to share about your big day? I am so thankful to Courtyard D’ORO for Greg and especially Sandi for helping me on site for destination, flowers, and catering!
