We knew when we first spoke with Vivian, she was our kind of girl. Charming, sassy, with vibrant energy and she sure loved her man. Vivian saw our planner Amanda on Tiktok and knew she was the planner for her, even though she didn’t actively have wedding plans yet. Following us for a while, Vivian and Walter finally decided to hold their elopement at Valley of Fire, near fabulous Las Vegas! And on 3-23-23 of all days!
But first, Vivian and Walter’s love story was pretty engaging and magical on how they met and fell in love. As Vivian explained, “We met on Facebook Dating back in January of 2021. I was swiping through people and I saw him and his picture and said, “Nice!” And he was a professional photographer as well! She clicked on the heart and waited and soon Walter responded and set up a marvelous 4 part date, involving golf, dinner at Cheesecake Factory, and a trip to the mall, and a special mini photo shoot. She was impressed! Friendship turned to love and they decided to tie the knot with us!
Vivian brought a few personal touches into her wedding such as custom champagne flutes painted with cute characters of herself and Walter, bedazzled shoes, and more. With Jacoba of Peachy Keen officiating, each said personal vows to the other. Included within the ceremony was a special touch, with the couple each mixing sand from Dubai, where Walter proposed, with our Valley of Fire sand into a lovely vase.
We wish our sweetest best wishes for Vivian and Walter! Congratulations and a long and happy life ahead for you both!
