Wedding Update #2

August 31, 2020

Family & Friends, We are now days away from our wedding day, and we are so excited to celebrate with you! We wanted to inform everyone that has accepted our invitation that our wedding is still happening. If you do not feel comfortable attending anymore and would like to change your RSVP, please let one us know as soon as possible. We need to get an accurate headcount to our vendors. We also would like to put as boldly as possible, that anyone attending our wedding MUST be feeling 1000000% healthy. IF you feel even the slightest bit “off” or unwell PLEASE! STAY! HOME! We cannot emphasize this enough. The health of our guests is far too important for you to show up because you want to get out of the house. Temperature checks will be taken as people arrive, and masks are strongly encouraged. Please also know that if you are more comfortable just attending the ceremony, and not the reception that is perfectly okay too. Please just let us know what your plans are.

Wedding Update

Family & Friends - We are so excited for our upcoming big day! We wanted to let you know that our wedding will proceed as normal on September 20th. With all that has been happening this year with COVID-19, we fully understand if you choose to not attend. Our venue is large with lots of space, so if you feel the need to socially distance yourself it will not be an issue. If staying home makes you feel more comfortable, that's okay too! Your health and well being is our main priority. Our wedding coordinators and venue staff have assured us that all precautionary measures will take place throughout the event. If anything changes between now & then, we will let you know!

How We Met

05.2016

We met on Match.com. Crazy, right? After a few failed dates leading to nowhere, Brianna logged onto Match.com to deactivate her account. But before doing so, noticed she had a new message. It was from Andrew. He looked pretty goofy in his awkward selfie with his bright blue Cubs hat, but she couldn't help but open the message to see what it said. "What kind of music do you like?" was what he wrote. Little did he know, music was a sure way to Brianna's heart. Our text messages were long and lasted all day and night. It was like we'd known each other forever. From that point forward, we knew this was something special.

The Proposal

09.01.2019

After months of telling each other we needed a weekend getaway, we finally decided on Labor Day to spend a night away from home down by the beach. We drove out to Dana Point early Sunday morning and spent all day at the beach relaxing and enjoying time alone with one another. Our hotel was right across the street from the beach, so after being in the sun all day, we walked back to our room to change and get ready for dinner. The plan for the night was to have dinner at the Italian restaurant next to the hotel, and then walk back to the beach to watch the sunset. Brianna is the biggest sucker for sunsets, so surely she wasn't going to miss an opportunity while near the beach. After dinner, we walked back over to the beach and found a spot where not too many people were. There wasn't much of a sunset due to clouds, but it was still a beautiful night. Andrew was fidgety and kept complaining about people walking by. Brianna was unsure of why Andrew was acting so weird, so when he got up and asked her to get up too, she thought he just wanted to move to somewhere more secluded. To her surprise, Andrew told her how much he loves her, and got down on one knee asking her to marry him. Brianna of course said HELL YES!
