Real Couples | Christiana and John

Are you ready to meet the most adorable couple, ever? Christiana and John came into my life back in April looking for a wedding planner for their wedding in 6 months….6 months! Whew, it has been whirlwind finding them a venue and all other vendors! But through it all these two have stayed totally focused on the marriage and not just the wedding. It has been beautiful getting to know these two kind, Godly people and I can’t wait to watch them say “I do”!

1) How did you two meet? 
We met at church!
2) How did he propose? 
I came home from Florida for Easter weekend on a whim. John was picking me up on Good Friday to take me to breakfast . On our way he asked if we could stop by his house to check out the cabinets that he was getting refinished because the cabinet guy had a question on refinishing the inside of the cabinet . Knowing nothing about cabinets I said sure. So we stopped by the house and he asked me to look inside the cabinet. When I opened the cabinet door he had the ring in a box with 2 sunflowers ( my favorite ) crossed. And I looked over and he was on one knee. I was in shock but obviously said YES!

3) What do you think will be your favorite part of your wedding day? 
Getting married of course! I think I am most looking forward to the ceremony & being surrounded by family and friends that love and care about us.

4) Can you provide some planning advice to brides in the thick of it right now? 
Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Make sure to schedule dates and spend time with your fiancé NOT discussing wedding details and focus on building your relationship. Your wedding day is important but it’s only 1 day , it will be here and there before you it. Your relationship is more important. Also it’s your wedding ! Get what you want, make it what you love.

I am most looking forward to having a partner in life, to celebrate in the good times and support each other in the hard times. I’m excited to build memories and our lives together 🙂
