We are thrilled to see this Newport Beach wedding featured on Tacari Weddings!
How did you meet?
We met through a mutual friend. Neither of us really excited for a set-up and resisting for a few months. Finally, we were both at the same bbq, and we started talking and hit it off. Later, my friend asked me my thoughts, and I said, “if he calls me, I’ll go out with him” The next day he called, and we went out a few days later. A few months later, we were living together and traveling and working together!
Happend at Social Costa Mesa. His brother Andrew is the owner and had a hand in setting up the proposal. We were all there on NYE, and at midnight he disappeared. A few seconds later, I see on the monitor a video montage of everything we’ve done together. He was down on one knee with 100 roses and asked me to marry him.
Inspiration of wedding colors:
I love rustic and romantic. Pelican Hill was our backdrop, which doesn’t get more romantic than that. I told Melissa (Flowers by Cina) I wanted purples with texture and greens. She flawlessly brought my vision to life. She truly is talented.
I hired Kelsey Connelly Events to help me coordinate the big day. Between her, Melissa and myself we pulled off a flawless day!
Both Brian and myself ended up gifting each other almost the same exact gift just in different mediums. Our wedding song was “My Best Friend” by Tim McGraw. I put a few lyrics on some custom cufflinks for him, while he created a logo for our day and printed the lyrics and framed them!
