Outdoor wedding, ballroom reception and Jamaican Honeymoon!
How did you meet?
Ryan worked at a popular bar in Newport Beach, which my friends and I use to go to on the weekends. After months of us running into each other, he finally got the nerve to ask me out. Of course I said YES and the rest was history.
Ryan proposed to me on a romantic cruise across the Pacific Ocean, which gave us a few days to enjoy our engagement and the rest of our vacation before we got busy planning our wedding. The morning we got back from our cruise, Ryan secretly planned an engagement brunch with our family at one of our favorite brunch spots and my dream wedding venue- The Monarch Beach Resort. After brunch ended, I jumped at the opportunity for a walk through with the event coordinator.
Difficulties planning the wedding?
We were very blessed to have such an easy time planning our wedding, however, some difficulties we encountered were:

We had so much fun planning our wedding. The top 3 most fun/easiest:
Something fun/unique we added to the wedding?
Suggestions/Ideas for other engaged couples?
Looking back on our special day, it was absolutely perfect, but the only thing my husband and I kept saying is “I wish it was longer”. We even added an extra hour to our reception, but 1:00 am still came very quick. Our advice to brides and grooms is making sure you schedule time to say hi to guest. As odd as that sounds, everything else is scheduled that day from your first dance to the last song played, from dinner being served to the cake cutting. So why not schedule a time for you to say hi and thank your entire guest for coming. If it’s something import to you, I highly recommend putting time aside in the itinerary, as our time slipped away.
