Long before the day came when Chris proposed, Allie and Chris met by dancing at a friend’s going away party. Then one summer they took a trip together to Bass Lake, Palm Desert and The Mondrian in LA. The day he proposed Allie realized he was acting different and was really quite. She explained the day as: I remember coming back to our room after a day at the pool and Chris had gone to the lobby for some reason…so when I walked in the room there was champagne on ice and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. So Chris comes up to the room and I asked ‘are these from you?’, and he kept saying ‘I didn’t get these’. So anyway, we get ready and head out for dinner. Then we come back to the room and hang out on the balcony, and he gets down on one knee and proposes! And by the way he never ordered the champagne and strawberries apparently they were suppose to go to another room, but the guests never showed up, so they just randomly put it in our room. What a perfect coincidence for them on such an amazing day! When I asked Allie what their goal was behind their wedding (obviously aside from getting married!), she simply responded “enjoying time with family and friends, as it is so difficult to bring everyone together at once”. A true testament to their lovely personalities and how great they are as a couple!Instead of asking her bridesmaids to go with any specific designer for their dresses, Allie just asked they find a grey dress they loved. Which was amazing because you could tell how comfortable each lovely lady was in their dress!Allie’s gift to her bridesmaids was a custom necklace with their name created from their own signature! Check out all the vendors on Etsy who can make these necklaces for you!Congratulations Chris and Allie on a simply stunning wedding full of love and laughter!
