Girl meets boy!
We met at Cal Poly during our freshman year. We were in the same dorms and Nick approached me in the study lounge one day because he was "struggling" with calculus. We dated through college and moved to the Bay together after graduating. One of our favorite things to do on the weekends was to go dirt biking together. He planned a trip early one morning and we stopped at this beautiful spot as the sun was coming over the hill and he proposed! He had one of our friends hiding in the bushes to take photos, and our family and friends were waiting at a nearby winery to celebrate. It was perfect!
Wedding Planning Inspiration
We wanted something easy going and not super traditional, where everyone (us included) could relax and enjoy the day. We loved the intimate, family feel of the venue since we could have both the ceremony and reception in the same space. We went for a modern boho theme, with macrame pieces and succulents to accent the beautiful landscaping. We looked for opportunities to keep things laid back, like having a salsa bar and family style chips on the tables during cocktail hour.
Neutral colors with gray and turquoise accents
We knew everything was going to go by so fast, so we chose a venue where we could stay there for the weekend with everyone in our wedding party. Our favorite part about going to weddings is the dance party, so we put extra focus on the playlist for our DJ to get everyone out on the dance floor with us.
One of our best friends was our officiant, and during the ceremony he asked us to take a moment to look at our everyone that was there. It was so powerful to see all of our family and friends together in one place.
