This Real Bride Series edition introduces Sara and Jason. Read about their amazing proposal!


Our Love Story:

What is your name and your groom’s name? Sara and Jason

What was your wedding date? October 7, 2017

How did you and your groom meet? We met at work.

The Proposal

We are dying to know, how did he propose?! We took a trip to London last year and visited Wimbledon while we were there.  Jason proposed as we were posing for pictures at Wimbledon.

What were your wedding colors and why did you choose them? Our wedding color was marine blue. 

The Dress

Where did you find your dress? Would you say that finding your dress was relatively easy or difficult? I bought my dress at David’s Bridal.  It was a painless experience because the consultant was amazing!

The Location

Where did your ceremony and reception take place? Was there any special meaning behind the choice of the venue(s)? We selected the Dream Manor Inn in Globe, AZ.  The ceremony was outdoors and the reception was indoors. 

What kind of flowers did you have in your bouquet and at the ceremony/reception?  I chose hydrangea and roses for our flowers.

The Cake

What was the flavor of your wedding cake? Our wedding cake was lemon with vanilla bean and it was amazing!  Who doesn’t like wedding cake?!

What details from your wedding that made it unique to you? We chose a nature themed wedding which tied in wonderfully with the views and wildlife around the venue.

Did you provide favors to your guests?  If so, what were they?  We customized wine glasses with our names and filled them with mints.  The kids each received a treasure box with a glow in the dark bracelet, super hero mask, chocolate, and emoji stamps.

Other than marrying your husband, what was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day? We loved having our family together for our wedding.  They all flew in from the east coast and being able to celebrate with them made the day so much more special.


The Honeymoon

Did you take a honeymoon? If so, where did you go? We are planning to visit Italy at Christmas.

What is one piece of wisdom you learned from your planning experience that you would like to share with future brides? Spending can get a little out of control so definitely prioritize what you want to be the most important and limit everything else. For example, food & open bar were more important than spending money on chair covers so we decided to forego the covers.
