Lisa + Ian
How did you meet?
Ian and I met at a local live music venue. He just walked up, introduced himself to me and offered to buy me a drink. We hit it off right away, talking and laughing all night.
How did you know he was the one?
I knew Ian was the one after we survived a year of long distance due to Ian’s job and how much we made every day together count.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
His humor, affection and big heart.
Who proposed and how?
Ian proposed on our first day of vacation in Barcelona. He had hired a photographer to meet us in a park to capture it all. It was all so beautiful and special!
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
At a bridal store in Houston! I had been to several other stores and just couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. I tried on Riley and immediately fell in love with the detail. The stylist suggested I order it with a crepe skirt and I knew I had finally found the perfect dress!
What was the best moment for you at the wedding?
We had the unfortunate timing of having a wedding planned during Covid. We didn’t want to postpone our date, so instead quickly planned an intimate wedding. My father being able to walk me down the ‘sidewalk’ and seeing family and friends social distancing and watching from the street was the absolute best feeling.
What surprised you about your wedding?
How even though we had to completely cancel all of our plans and instead decided to have a very small wedding ceremony, we loved it more than we could have ever expected!
What advice would you tell other brides?
When life throws you a curveball, just figure out what is most important to you and make the best out of it! You don’t have to completely give up on your dreams and in the end it might be even more special than you had ever imagined!
What did you do differently?
We got married on the front porch of our new home. We could have chosen a local park or something similar, but we are so excited to be able to look back at our wedding photos and know it was at the home where we started our lives together.
