Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met on the first day that Kevin started working at the California Energy Commission. At that time, we worked in the same office. My co-worker and I thought it’d be nice to introduce ourselves to the new guy.

Kevin decided to pop the question as we were on our night walk with our dog around The Promenade/Crocker Art Museum. He thought it’d be nice for our pup, Abby, to witness her parents getting engaged.

We like to think of ourselves as fun, casual and practical people. While our wedding day is important, we did not want to spend a whole lot of money on this one day of our life, so we tried to get the best value possible out of all the things we did.

What was the most amazing part of your day? Seeing our moms enjoying themselves and happy that we are finally tying the knot. In our minds, our wedding was dedicated to them for their hard work in raising us.

What else would you like to share about your big day? Every single vendor I worked with was absolutely fabulous. I would recommend each and every one of them!

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Don’t sweat the small stuff. Nobody but you will notice. And if you give yourself enough time, DIY and buying online can save a good chunk of change. Our event was also on a Sunday during the day, which also saved a lot of money.

Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? No. Diana did everything she could within her control before and during the wedding day (she was the main person facilitating everything wedding day related).
