We loved working with Carolina and Carlos to create the wedding day of their dreams! From the mariachi band to the ice cream truck, their day was a hit from start to finish. We hope you enjoy the week of love (happy early Valentine's day!) while reflecting on this couple's special day and their love story leading up to it.
How long have you and your spouse been together?
How did you two meet?
We met in undergrad at Sacramento State at a sorority & fraternity event called serenades. That evening we both must have met hundreds of people and in the midst of it all we briefly spoke and exchanged phone numbers. Shortly after that we ended up reconnecting and made plans to meet each other for lunch in between our classes. We became great friends and continued to spend a lot of time together and after a year of "hanging out" together, we both hit a turning point in our relationship and decided to make it official and begin dating.
How did they propose?
Carlos set up a surprise private and intimate wine tasting at Heringer Estates with our immediate family. It was perfect and incredibly memorable. We still get butterflies and giddy just thinking about it!
What was your wedding style?
Bohemian, Elegant & Romantic
When it came to planning your wedding, what was most important to you?
We both wanted to feel stress free the day of and have the best time of our lives!
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
Our favorite part was our first look and seeing the design aspect come together.
What was something that surprised you about wedding planning?
How many little details there actually are! It takes a great deal or coordination the day of with the venue, the vendors, and the wedding party.
What made you choose Tan Weddings & Events to be a part of it?
It was really important for us to have a fun and care free day. The Tan's were a fountain of knowledge, very responsive and attentive to everything we needed. Planning a wedding is extremely complex and the Tan’s helped us navigate through it all and referred us to our wonderful vendors and ensured our day was perfect!
When it came to your venue selection, why did you choose to get married there?
The grounds at the venue are immaculate and everything is very well taken care of. It was really important for us to have two separate places for the wedding party to get ready and Wolfe Heights had two homes on the property that gave us ample space to get ready.
If you could provide a tip to another couple planning their wedding, what would it be?
One tip would be to hire wedding planner :) and the second would definitely be to soak it all in, be present and enjoy ever bit of it because it does fly by. To the TWE Team, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It was lovely working with the both you both and rest your team.
