Brace yourself, this wonderful love story is 7 years in the making and Brittany could not wait to share it with us so we can share it with you! Brittany and Paul met online when they were in high school in South Phoenix. Coincidentally, both of their families are from South Phoenix so it worked out perfectly! After being together for seven years, Paul popped the question. He did so at Carabbas, the very same place that the couple celebrated their first anniversary together at. On their one year anniversary in 2009, Paul presented Brittany with a promise ring and six years later he replaced that one with an engagement ring!
Brittany took the reins when it came to planning the couple’s wintertime wedding! She said that although it was a challenge, she loved being heavily involved with the process. The theme that they had decided to go with was classic and traditional. A perfect theme to represent a couple that had met young, has grown together over the years and will continue to grow. Although the décor and setting had a traditional feel to it, the atmosphere of the day was fun and lively with StepOnMe Photography capturing every second!
The ceremony took place at San Marcos Golf Resort Fountain Courtyard and was filled with laughter and love. The reception that started out with a bang! As Paul is usually a laid-back kind of man, his entrance into the reception was energetic as he put on a show with his dance moves. To add to the excitement of Paul’s dancing, the couple’s two-year-old also joined in with the dancing to really get the party started! The reception continued with more dancing and heartfelt toasts to the bride and groom. One toast was particularly special as it was a serenade from Brittany’s sorority sisters, a tradition that puts emphasis on milestones within a member’s life such as graduation and, you guessed it, weddings!
