ENGAGEMENT: 22 Months WEDDING MONTH: June STARTING & ENDING BUDGET: $20,000 STARTING GUEST COUNT: 150 ENDING GUEST COUNT: 200 FIRST LOOK: With my Dad! FIRST DANCE SONG: “Thinking Out Loud”- Ed Sheeran FAVORITE PART OF THE PLANNING PROCESS: Tours and tastings! LOVE STORY: Ryan worked for my father for several years and every month or so my dad would tell me, “I have someone I want you to meet.” I kindly replied, “I’m currently seeing someone, dad.” “Well, when that ends.” He was right. I gave in and let Ryan take me on a date. We’ve been inseparable for almost six years. PROPOSAL: Ryan took me to Talon Winery. He handed me a piece of paper, which turned out to be a clue. Each clue was a memory of the times we shared. The last clue was hidden in a scarf that he had tied around our dog’s neck and it said, “Will you marry my dad?” IMPORTANT ELEMENTS: We wanted a venue that allowed us to get ready on the property, included great spaces for photos, a big dance floor and a sparkler send-off!
