Fall Garden Vibes

1. How did you two meet or what was the proposal like?: We met at a CrossFit gym and have a lot in common. The proposal was lovely. It happened on Valentine's day 2019 in Los Angeles, California while we were traveling. 

2. Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception: Fall colors and all credit for decor goes to Wood-n-Crate and my Etsy flower arrangements (Kochetova). 

3. What piece of advice would you give other couples planning their big day? HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER, there is no time to coordinate all the small details on your own as a bride (especially when it's a destination wedding).
