Copperton Park



BEFORE THE WEDDING
Occupations: Bride- Service Admin at H&E Equipment. Groom- Electrician at Cache Valley Electric.

How the couple met: We use to work with each other at Cache Valley Electric. I worked in his division as an admin. One day he called for some supplies and I told him I had to order them and they take a while to get in. He didn’t believe me so once they actually got in I told him he owed me. I was thinking he would just bring me a candy bar or something else. But nope he asked me out on a date and we have been together ever since.
How he proposed: We went on a cruise last Sept, we had decided to stay the night before our cruise at the Queen Mary. So that night we were lying in bed and he held up the ring and asked me if I would marry him. I asked him if he was serious five times before saying yes. He is a joker and I didn’t believe he was really asking me.

Bridal shower/Bachelorette party: My maid of honor and his best man planned a group party to a local bar called Lumpy’s.

Bachelor party: Stated above

D├ęcor elements: I printed some of our engagements and my bridals and put them on the tables with memo holders I had found that the bases were heart shaped and silver.

Unique details: The cake, it was a different cake.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
Bride's answer: Walking down the aisle and seeing the smile on Larry’s face and knowing how happy I was that this day had finally came. He looked so good in his tux!

Groom's answer: Seeing her walk down the aisle in her dress. It was the first time I got to see her in it and it was worth the wait. She looked amazing.

HONEYMOON

Place: NFL game in San Frisco the 49ers and Giants game in November. Our teams are actually playing against each other so we will be attending the game if they have a season this year.

A memorable moment of the honeymoon: Well since we haven’t gone yet we can’t really say, but I the bride already know it’s going to be the Giants kicking the 49ers butts.

WEDDING ADVICE
I would say to relax and let it be your wedding and not everyone else’s. Everyone wants to put their 2 cents in which is fine but you don’t have to do everything everyone says. It’s your guys day and it should be always about the two of you and the love you share for one another. The money that you spend on it isn’t going to matter ten years down the road so do it cheap and nice and have FUN!
