Amber + Ron

How did you meet?

Ron and I had a chance encounter at work. I am a teacher in Los Angeles, California and Ron is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams, but fell into substitute teaching. This was not his calling, so the fact that we met was true destiny. I was a 5th grade teacher at the time and had challenging students that year. Needless to say he is no longer a substitute teacher!

When did you know they were the one?

Do you believe in love at first sight? I know it sounds so cliche, but Ron and I fell in love the moment we laid eyes on each other. When he walked into my classroom our eyes met, I think I blushed, and that was it! Since my class was so bad he know he wouldn’t be back so he decided to write me a note asking me out leaving his number. I called him the standard 3 days later and we went for drinks the following day. On our first date we joked about how our chance meeting would be a funny story to tell our grandchildren and as they say, the rest is history!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner

Ron is the funniest person I know! He has such a kind and caring heart. He is respectful and respects me for the woman that I am.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

Love and Lace Bridal Salon in Los Angeles. The day before I found my dress, I did the whole dress shopping event with my bridesmaids and mother. It went horribly and I left each salon feeling more and more frustrated. That night when I got home I went online and found the Made With Love wedding dress line. Made With Love dresses are only available at 2 locations in the LA and Orange County area, so I made an appointment at the boutique in LA for the following day. Every Made With Love dress fit me like a glove, but as soon as I put on Sasha, I knew it was “The One!” The fit was amazing and the detailed lace was everything I had dreamed my wedding dress would be. By the way, everyone loved it! I got so many compliments the day of my wedding. I hope one day to pass it on to my daughter!

Who proposed and how?

One day out of the blue I told him that if he wanted to marry me I was expecting a surprise proposal. He looked at me and walked away. I thought I scared him off, but he disappeared for about 10 minutes. Suddenly I heard a doorbell and when I answered, there he was on his knees with a makeshift ring in his hands. He said, “Surprise! Will you marry me?” I laughed my head off and I probably rolled my eyes, but I said yes of course!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, so we just extended our stay in Mexico!
