From the Bride and Groom
How did you meet?
We met when Daniel's brother and Brittani's best friend started dating. He lived three hours away, but he started taking trips to "see his brother" as an excuse to see me. He asked me out to coffee and told me he'd like to pursue a dating relationship; we prayed about it and God did the rest!
How did Daniel propose?
On one of his weekend trips to see me, he called and asked if I wanted to have breakfast with him. He picked me up and we drove to a spot in the desert overlooking the hills and shared homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh coffee. He got up to dump out the coffee grounds in a nearby bush and returned with a small ring box, of course I said yes and cried. It was small and beautiful. It was us.
Tell us about your wedding day
We wanted to take a personal approach to our details. The gears and the ranch were for Daniel; the lace and the colors were for Brittani. We handmade the men's boutonnieres, the invites, and the centerpieces. Our friends and family played a huge role in making our day what it was, we were both overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support for our commitment to each other.
Do you have any advice for couples planning their wedding?
Enjoy the process! You will never get this time back, cherish it and have fun. Make your wedding what you want it to be, but remember you are ultimately planning for a marriage.
