Regan and Ben’s Stunning Stockton Wedding~10-28-18

How and or where did you meet?

Through church

How did you get proposed to?

Ben proposed on May 11th, 2018 during our vacation to Disney World. Ben told me he wanted to take some nice pictures on the beach when we stopped in New Smyrna on the way to Orlando. When we arrived at the beach we walked down to the water with my cousin Bailey Deem tagging along with the camera. We started to take some pictures and after about 5 minutes Ben reached into his back pocket, pulled out the ring, and got down on one knee (in the sand with jeans on!). I was very surprised by the location and timing of the proposal. He didn’t give it away that he would do it at the beach at all! We finished the day by traveling the rest of the way to Orlando and enjoying the night life at Disney Springs that evening. It was such a fun and exciting day!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?

The ceremony! The ceremony was outside and it was a perfect fall afternoon, just what we were hoping for. Everything about the ceremony was perfect, from walking down the isle to exchanging vows.

Normans Bridal Experience:

My experience was great! I went three times total to make sure the dress that I picked was “the one.” The consultants were patient and listened to my wishes. Katie was my favorite!
