Lorra and Daylen’s Christmas morning proposal 9~26~21

How and or where did you meet?
We met in Highschool! I was a senior and he was a sophomore. We had always been around each other with having similar friend groups. When we first started talking, I was working at Subway, and he would come by and sit with me in the back to keep me company. Our dating anniversary is 3/12/2015.

How did you get proposed to?
It has always been our tradition to go over to his Nana and Poppas house on Christmas Day and hang there all day. I didn’t know this at the time (obviously) but he had been texting his family and they where all in the know! I was a little sad because I thought he might propose Christmas morning at our house and it hadn’t happened yet. I walk in and sit down and next thing I know he is down on one knee in front of his whole family on Christmas morning. It was such a special moment!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
The whole thing! Can I say that? We truly had the best wedding day and that is because we had some of the best wedding Vendors in the business alongside us for the ride. If I had to pick just one thing, it would be the night before when we rented out a whole cabin for the entire bridal party to stay in the night before. It was such a fun time to sit around and chat and relax before the big day and have one big sleepover.

What vendors did you use at your wedding?
Dylan’s Backyard Captures! He is SO talented and such a great photographer to work with. He is kind, caring, compassionate, a true champion of his craft. Any bride that books him will not be sad with how her wedding photos turn out.

Videographer-MOVE weddings did such a great job with our wedding video. They captured all of the special moments of our day and you could hardly tell they were even there! They are very stealthy.

The Venue at Stockton Lake is where we had our ceremony and reception, and it was beautiful. Daylen and I have spent many summers out on his boat at Stockton Lake, so it was very special to us to get married there as well.

Shannon’s Custom florals did our flowers, and she was awesome to work with as well! She always listened to my ideas and was able to make the most beautiful arrangements out of my craziness!

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
My experience was fantastic! I had a large wedding party (6 bridesmaids, I’m crazy) and they were able to accommodate all of us plus my mom, little sister, and grandma! I was able to try on so many beautiful gowns and was over the moon once I found the one!
