Julie + Nash’s Wedding

I had the privilege of not only being able to attend two of my good friends’ wedding, but I also got to coordinate! I already love planning weddings, but when it is your friends’ event,  it is an added bonus! Their ceremony was held at Laguna Beach Presbyterian Church.  The church, newly remodeled, was stunning in its old world charm. After the ceremony, the couple  ventured down to the Montage with their wedding party and fabulous photographer Sara Wolfram of One Love Photography.

The reception was held at the Dana Point Yacht Club. My favorite moments of the day, by far,  was when Julie and Nash along with their bridal party, arrived at their reception via a sailboat. They looked like they all could have been on the cover of a magazine! With an amazing meal, floral arrangements of white ( all fashioned by the bride herself), a photo booth and a night of dancing, the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Robertson enjoyed the night of their dreams.

Birthday Wishes

A marriage proposal is significantly transformed by the atmosphere and the people who fill the room. John knew Tori secretly wanted her family and close friends near when he proposed. That’s exactly what he did.  John is on the shyer side, so declaring his love in front of others was a simple yet unbelievable testament to Tori.  This is why I love proposal stories because gentlemen reveal just what they will do and how they’ll step out of their comfort zone in the name of love! Over at Simply U Proposals, we put together a proposal inspiration board to show how it all unfolded since John was unable to get photos himself.

It was Tori’s birthday and John invited friends and family over to celebrate. Tori was opening gifts when she came across a small box from her boyfriend, John. Moments before she got to John’s gift he snuck out to the backyard. When she opened the gift box there was a note saying her present was in the backyard. Tori walked outside, family following, and saw a huge gift box adorned with a big white bow and a string, that was tied to the top of the present. There was a sign with an arrow directing her to pull the string. John hung the string over a tree branch so when Tori pulled the string, the entire box began to lift up. The music cued, and “their” song began playing, thanks to her mom who was in on the whole thing.  When she pulled the box up, John was on his knee, engagement ring in hand, and surrounded by lavender flowers (her favorite)!  They danced together, a newly engaged couple, in the middle of all their family and friends. I love this simple yet beautiful proposal because he stepped out of his shell to make her proposal a dream come true. Now that’s love.

Love,

Carrie Underwood Engagement + “The” Ring

We are big fans of country music and Carrie Underwood’s voice. Recently Carrie Underwood took home the award for Entertainer of the Year at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Before that event, Carrie already started this year off great with a gorgeous yellow diamond ring from her hockey playing beau, Mike Fisher. Not only did Carrie find a pair of pink warm fuzzy socks under her Christmas tree this past December, but a fiancé as well. Thanks to jeweler, Johnathan ArndtFisher beautified her finger with a five-carat yellow round diamond with diamond sidestones engagement ring costing over $150,000; we sought out similarly beautiful ring settings and yellow diamonds at budget-friendly prices. There are some gorgeous rings out there!

According to Allure, Carrie stated, “He could have put a twisty-tie on my finger and that would have worked.” The laid back couple has not yet rushed into the wedding plans and is trying to keep everything simple. We just love her! For those of you getting ready to ring shop, have fun and don’t overlook the stunning yellow diamonds!

All About The Deets!

It’s all about the details! This is what makes girls hearts melt. We shared Chris and Jaime’s marriage proposal in Rome last week, but I wanted to zoom in on the details to show how it truly made a picnic in Tivoli go from cute to “WOW!” If you haven’t already, you can read their whole proposal story and see all the beautiful pictures in Rome.

Envelope #1: His aunt, a gifted artist, hand painted a frame that shared inside jokes and a found memory. Recognize those names NY152 and Shopgirl? It’s from one of the best romantic comedies You Got Mail, which was the first movie Chris and Jaime watched together 7 years ago!  Gentlemen, take advantage of any resources you have to add the little touches.

Envelope #2: Where they met! He wrote a letter as if it were from Match.com to prepare her for the video he put together, which consisted of him and her family sharing all the amazing things about Jaime and why they loved Chris and her together.

Envelope #3: He printed out a menu from their first date together.

Envelope #4: Jaime’s ultimate love (besides Chris of course) is ice cream. He made her a gelato coupon so he could treat her to one of her favorite things. So thoughtful!  photo4

All the surprise filled envelopes were hidden inside this fabulous Italian linen, which went superbly with their picnic theme proposal! The champagne, fruit and paninis were flavorful additions for her dream picnic.

Think about all the extra touches you can add to show just how well you know her. This is why it’s so important to give yourself time to plan your proposal, so you can think about the deets! They are the icing on the cake. If you are searching for a thoughtful idea or need help thinking of the little details you can send us an email over at Simply U Proposals.  Good luck and have fun with it!

Love,
