“Ana and I met on the job at the daycare we both work at. Ana immediately caught feelings, but I took a little extra time to warm up to her. After interacting with her and seeing just how big of a heart she has and how amazing of a person she is, I fell just as hard. After only five months of being together, Ana left for basic training and we had to endure a long-distance relationship for quite some time. To propose, Ana created a scavenger hunt with clues given to me by important friends and family in our lives. The stops ranged from getting my hair and nails done to the daycare, to the final stop- a local beach. Our friends and families each gave me a flower leading up to Ana. Did we have plans to enjoy a nice, fancy dinner following our engagement? Yes. Did we end up on the couch with our cats and eating McDonald’s? You bet!
One of the easiest choices in our wedding planning process was choosing our venue. As soon as we walked into the Grand Ballroom at The Villa, it was a no-brainer. The room is so spacious and gorgeous, and it was exactly what we envisioned for our wedding. The fact that we had our own side to the venue and our own outside ceremony space played a big factor in choosing The Villa. Ashley, who gave us our tour, was nice and welcoming. She answered all of our questions without telling us we needed to alter our wedding vision, unlike what we had been told by other venues. Our initial steps into the venue told us that this was where we were going to get married.
Our favorite part of our wedding day was getting to enjoy our reception and also seeing everything that we had planned out for years come to fruition. Dancing the night away on the dance floor, enjoying time with our family and friends, and taking sunset photos on the bridge were the best parts of our day. Also, THE FOOD.
