Iowa Brides

Tell us your love story!

Tiff and I met through mutual friends. Tiffani had spent the last couple of years on bed rest while treating Lyme disease. She rarely left the house in the beginning, so we spent a lot of time watching movies and talking while she rested. I was blown away by her determination and drive through her struggles. She celebrated small accomplishments. She slowly saw improvements, and was able to get out and enjoy life more over time.

What about the proposal?

I proposed to Tiffani through a video that I made. I felt it would be a better way of showing her what she meant to me, than using my own words. We went and stayed in a little cabin that we liked to visit, and I showed it to her there. She said yes, of course.

When did you know that you were meant to be together?

I think I knew almost instantly that my life wouldn't be right without this girl in it. She was good at all the things I was bad at. She was encouraging and strong, and inspired me to be a better person. I've always looked at her with pure admiration from the first day I met her.

Going into the wedding planning, what did you know you wanted?

We knew we wanted a night wedding, after dark.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning?

I wish I had known that I didn't need to stress as much. I wish I had been more organized!

Any advice for couples planning weddings?

Try to enjoy the planning process! Take time to look around and tuck away little memories.

What was you favorite part of the wedding?

My favorite part of our wedding day was our lantern-lit ceremony. It was intimate, with only a handful of special people there. We were able to speak openly to each other and not worry about a big crowd, or timing, or any of the other usual stresses.

A La Jolla Ceremony

Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?

We knew we would have to have 2 weddings. One in San Diego (where Jason is from) and one in Längenfeld, Austria (Konrad’s hometown) so that our closest friends and family could attend. We also knew that we wanted to be outside and do something active with our weddings. So our wedding was near the Torrey Pines Cliffs in La Jolla (where we first met and did our first hike) We had it outside in a Spanish style hacienda hotel. Reflective of old California and Mexican culture and near the beach with a beautiful outdoor feel. We combined it with a day of yoga and running before the wedding, and a Torrey Pines hike the day after the wedding. Very much Jason’s roots.

In Austria we were married in a family hut up in the Austrian Alps above Konrad’s home town. We dressed in traditional lederhosen and had an outdoor wedding with dinner and music followed up inside the hut. We also combined the wedding with some outdoor hiking fun before the wedding, and an overnight hike after the wedding.

What surprised you during planning? What was easy, what was difficult?

During our engagement we moved to Toronto for Konrad’s job. So, our San Diego wedding became a destination wedding and proved to be a little more difficult planning the details with the hotel and rental services. With the time difference and communication, it took a little longer then we wanted.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?

Sometimes vendors like to suggest things that make the planning or execution easier on themselves and it may not be what you want. Take their advice and list the pros and cons, but if it’s something you really want don’t be afraid to push back and as the question of “why” if there’s something special you want to do or achieve.

Any advice for couples planning weddings now? Anything you would have done differently or anything you’d like to add?

Enjoy it, and don’t sweat the little things. When people offer to help, take them up on it. It’s helpful to you, and they feel closer to the big day by helping out. They’re offering because they mean it.

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

Looking at the faces of our parents and family. The smile on our parent’s face, and the words that were shared by our friends are hands-down the best moments of both weddings. I’m so happy our photographer and videographers were able to capture these moments, because we have them in our hearts and on our walls forever.
