Tell about your love story!
-We met on a blind date set up by mutual friends. We are a perfect match because we complement each other's strengths and weaknesses. The question was popped at the same venue in just a different garden. He insisted that we have to see a cactus special greenhouse. I was surprised because it was raining when the proposal happened. We considered the rain to be our good luck charm
Describe your wedding planning process.
-We were engaged for about a year. I hired a day-of-coordinator,Venetta Petties (Pink Glitter Events), who ended up also being a great resource for all my needs a month before the wedding. We definitely utilized the knot website the most. The best decision surrounding the big day, other than marrying my best friend, was doing a brunch theme!

What about the details?
-We had a simple garden brunch theme. We wanted it to be casual and more of a gathering and less of a wedding.
