Brittany and Stefan grew up in the same town in Canada, but went to different high schools. They noticed each other at parties and were finally introduced by mutual friends in January of 2011, and hit it off instantly. Their first date was to see the movie, Paranormal Activity at Grand Prairie Mall. Both love scary movies and their date went great. Brittany was really nervous because she liked Stefan so much, that she really doesn’t remember much of the date, but definitely remembers sharing their first kiss outside her apartment when he dropped her off. It’s one of her fondest memories. She said that Stefan was a catch back then and still is! He felt the same way about her so they became an instant couple, but didn’t make it official until February 7th in 2011. She was driving them to a friend’s house and just as Brittany was making a wrong turn he asked her to be his girlfriend and she drove her car straight into a ditch! After the jolt from suddenly stopping passed, Stefan looked at her and asked, “Is that a yes?” That’s when they started the next chapter of their lives. The following summer they got to take a cruise around Europe with Stefan’s family. That trip solidified their relationship, walking along the streets of Barcelona and playing on the beach, head over heels in love with each other. In just a few short weeks they will be back there enjoying their honeymoon. They had talked about marriage quite frequently, but Stefan kept telling Brittany that it would be another couple years so she wouldn’t suspect anything… and in May of 2015 Stefan surprised her with a proposal.

Brittany was out with her friend when she received a text message from Stefan that said, “I miss you. Come home. I have a surprise.” Intrigued, Brittany made her way home to find a blindfold hanging on their door. She put it on and he led her downstairs where he removed it to reveal champagne, roses, and he was wearing a suit! Stefan dropped to one knee and asked, “Brittany will you marry me?” and she didn’t believe him so she said, “This is mean!” and he then said, “This is real!” and she then noticed how nervous Stefan was and she started to cry and of course she said “YES!”

After the excitement and shock of the proposal, the wedding planning began.  They travel to Phoenix from Canada often, and knew it would be the perfect location for their destination wedding.  All family and guests attending the wedding travelled from Canada (and left a huge snow storm behind!).  It was an absolute perfect day.  Here are just a few of my favorite images.
