This week we wanted to feature one of our clients who we have the honor of wedding coordinating for next summer! We first met Danielle when she came in dress shopping. We are always asking our brides about their stories; how they met, how long they’ve been together, their proposal, etc. and this story we found so special and unique.
Bret and I met through our mutual good friend Jen. Neither of us were at all looking to date or be in a relationship, but unbeknownst to us were being set up by Jen. Bret and I both have fairly feisty personalities, so it made for interesting banter. He was very much a gentleman opening all doors (including the car). After that we spent every opportunity we had together. I worked in Beaverton and lived in Keizer, so needless to say I had quite the commute and he was busy running his trucking company and being a great dad to his two amazing little girls. So in between our busy schedules we tried to find as much time as we could together. Over the next few months things progressed pretty quickly. I met and fell in love with his precious girls and even more with him after watching how he loved them. Over that holiday we chose to live together and shortly after shared a great vacation to the Bahamas and seriously discussed our future. A short 2 months after that I left my career in banking to manage the office of his trucking company! In July he proposed and in August we chose to have a quiet courthouse ceremony. We look forward to celebrating with our friends and loved ones this coming August in a larger outdoor ceremony.
Danielle & Bret will be holding their ceremony and reception next August at the lovely Yellow Gold Farm. We can’t wait to be there to see Danielle in her beautiful Alfred Angelo dress from Merrime, and to ensure their day is everything they dream it will be! Congrats to you both and we wish you love and happiness always!
