Sarah and Brian met about 10 years ago. They became friends and stayed in touch over the years, until Brian left the Navy in 2017 and moved to Chi town, nearer to Sarah. After a year of bugging Sarah to go out with him, she finally caved, went on a date, and the rest is history.
Brian and Sarah were married within the quaint wood-covered walls of the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas, just like her parents.
After the ceremony, they raced out to Valley of Fire for their ceremony. This couple pulled out all the stops with Popsicles from Joypop, since it was so warm outside, and Yukon pizza, desserts by Caked, and a beautiful Charcuterie board from Sweet Sauce Coffee as well!
As Sarah walked down the aisle, the beautiful strains of guitar music, played by Joshua of Six Strings could be heard in the still silence of the desert. Her lovely gown was covered in exquisite lace floral patterns, and her shoes were amazing, with matching florals winding up the back of her shoes. She also had some sparkling tennis shoes to wear in the desert that had glitter all over for a cute pop of sass.
Brian had some amazing cufflinks with their dog’s picture on them. They were pretty cool!
This couple was pretty funny, cutting little jokes quietly on the sly, but we still heard them! The groom told Sarah to “cut the cake, not the cheese” while they were getting ready for that. They were a quiet couple but had glowing smiles the whole time. We loved this pair, and it was obvious Sarah had picked a great guy. Both Sarah and Brian’s sisters remarked about what a great guy he was, and this brought a few tears to his eyes. (We love it when a groom cries, especially tough service boys)
It was great to see this couple and their loving family and friends celebrate with them. Congratulations, Sarah and Brian! All our love to you!
