Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?

Get a planner early on!!

What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme:

Needed to be COVID friendly, with close family and friends, and intimate so we did a backyard wedding at my father in law’s home.

Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?

We met through a mutual friend who went to college with him and church with me. She showed him my IG, and showed me his… and she passed along our numbers. We talked on the phone the following week and went on our first date a month later in Redondo Beach. Food was bleh but the company was amazing. He is from CA but was living in Boston. I was still living in LA, so we did serious long distance dating for about 6 months, got married in 2020 and had our wedding in 2021. Cheers to forever!
