Basically I saw Nannette’s picture and decided we were going to get married! After about 4 months of convincing she finally agreed to go out with me.
What about the proposal?
Nannette completely surprised me with a proposal under a gorgeous tree, in a park. A friend lured me there for a walk, and she came up the hill seemingly out of nowhere after I watched a video she made set to XO by Beyonce. After wards we went for “a drink” and 60 people were waiting for me on a rooftop.
When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?
It was probably two weeks after meeting. We went to a wedding together and spent the weekend together, and I think we both just knew. We did long distance for 6 months and then we couldn’t do it anymore.
Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?
We definitely knew that we wanted a big wedding, and a fun party. Nannette said every day she would marry me in a courthouse and then go to taco bell, but I wasn’t into that. Hahaha
What surprised you during planning? What was easy, what was difficult?
Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?
We were so fortunate to have so many talented friends, they made it all so easy. We trust them all so much, and they all were perfect. Their expertise made it so fun and stress free!
Any advice for couples planning weddings now?Anything you would have done differently or anything you’d like to add?
Make it about you!! That’s what people want to see. They want it to be very personal, so don’t focus on doing what’s hip or in. Do what best expresses who you are as a couple. They will genuinely appreciate it.
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
I think the video was OUR FAVORITE, and basically everyone’s favorite part of our day. I also loved our ceremony. It was very personal and touching, but also light hearted and fun all at once.
