I knew that I wanted to ask my wedding attendants to be in the wedding in a cute and special way. Something memorable. So, my first DIY was born. I decided to make cute little cards for each girl with a picture of the bride on front saying Will You.... and then a message inside, which I specialized a little note to each girl. I also ordered a cute bridesmaid book that tells the girls about their duties as a bridesmaid in a cute fun way!
The proposal: Mike and I went to San Diego for our annual New Year's Eve trip. Well on Friday, January 2nd, after spending the day driving around all the parts of San Diego, Mike told me that we were going to meet our friends. Since I am not very familiar with the area I had no idea where we were going. Once we got to the beach at Del Mar, we got out of the car and started walking on the beach. You would think this would raise a flag, but I was still oblivious to what was about to happen. While we were walking on the beach Mike continued looking around for which I thought was our friends, but in fact he was looking for the sweet proposal written in the sand. Once we found it, he got down on one knee and recited the sweetest proposal a girl could ask for. It took me a few minutes, but when I came back to reality I finally said YES!
My Ring: My ring was designed by a jeweler in Los Angeles. It is styled after a Michael B type setting. It is absolutely beautiful and looks perfect on my hand. I am in awe of it every single day!
Mike and I met about 4 and a half years ago. Our story isn't my favorite, but we met at a bar/resturant that I was working at. My current manager was Mike's roommate, so he tended to come in quite often. I waited on Mike the very first time he came in, and we just ended up talking from there. One day he asked me out, had a great date and the rest is history!
Mike and I reside in Scottsdale, Arizon, we live in our new house that we moved into about a year ago with our 5 year old puggle Milo. We have been in constant remodel since we have moved in, and now we have wedding planning to add to it!
Besides working on our house, spending time with our adorable dog or hosting bbq's with our friends, we have our busy jobs to go to as well. I do marketing for a shopping center company and Mike is a realtor as well as a bar owner.
I guess that sum's up our life in a nutshell!
