Ariel & Joe

How did you meet?

8th Grade Spanish Class

When did you know they were the one?

When we got back together in late 2015 after being apart  for 5 years (we started dating for 3 years in 2006)

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His intelligence, loyalty & compassion.

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

Love & Lace Bridal Salon in Irvine, CA. I had been eyeing it on social and I loved how it was a perfect combination of classic and boho. I’m also a very petite girl and I wanted a dress that wouldn’t overpower me but still had those bridal qualities. Frankie was all that and more!

Who proposed and how?

Joe proposed at the base of a lighthouse in Laguna Beach (we had our first date here back in 2006)

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

Currently in Hawaii for our minimoon. Travelling to Spain & Portugal for our honeymoon in May 2019.
