How did you meet?
Scott and I met on a camping trip through mutual friends while we were in college in Washington 7 years ago.
How did the proposal happen?
This past March we went on a trip to Cabo San Lucas. Scott sailed from Newport to Cabo along with his cousin and his wife and I met them down there. Our last day was very special, we had a couples massage, dinner, and then watched the hotel show together. Later that evening around 10, Scott asked me to go on a walk on the beach with him. I thought nothing of it because that is a typical thing for us to do. We were walking along the beach with the waves crashing and the city lights shimmering. There was a full moon with the reflection on the ocean. Holding hands and talking Scott said that he loved me and of course I said it back. He then proceeded to bend down on one knee and tell me that he loved me so much that he wanted to marry me. I was shocked!!! I said YES with enthusiasm and then couldn’t stop jumping up and down. He had a ring box that had a light built in so that I could see the ring in the dark. We stayed down on the beach and walked a little more. When we were walking back to the hotel fireworks started to go off. It was a perfect proposal.
What made you choose Wiens?
Wiens was the first venue that we looked at and we knew right away that it was the place for us. We liked the elegance yet simplicity of the winery and loved the gorgeous barrel room. We viewed several other places but we knew from the beginning that Wiens was the perfect fit for us. Jamie made us feel welcome right away and was always so helpful.
Wedding Date: March 31, 2010
What made your wedding unique?
Our wedding was unique because of all of the people involved in it. Our photographer was a friend of the grooms from high school. Liz, one of the bridesmaids is a talented graphic designer and helped with the programs and coasters as well as the envelope address bands for our invitations. The pastor was the brides high school religion teacher. All of these people helped make our day so special and unique to us and have known us both during different parts of our lives.
What was your favorite part of the day?
Once the ceremony was complete and we were husband and wife we could sit back, relax and enjoy the evening and life ahead of us.
