How did they meet?

We met in engineering school during our undergraduate studies. Studying Mechanical Engineering and ended up with similar classes towards the end of our junior year. We became best friends really quickly and we were dating by the time we began working on our Master’s degrees.

Their proposal stories?

We went to a wine and canvas class. We had been before and loved it so we booked a second-class months later near our one-year anniversary. Once we returned to the car Brian asked if I wanted to “paint the rest of our lives together”. However, since we were sitting in the car in close proximity and it’s not out of the ordinary for Brian to say really romantic things, I said “of course” and kissed him without noticing the ring in his hand resting on the center console. He then asked if I would marry him and that’s when I looked down and saw the ring. He definitely has made fun of me for it.

What do you love most about each other?

I absolutely love how caring Brian is, and how out-of-this-world smart he is. Not only is he good-looking, but he has amazing qualities that make me love him every single day even more.

I love how thoughtful Carolina is. She’s always coming up with little ways to try to surprise me and make me happy. Having her by my side is full of adventures and she makes everything fun.

Biggest challenge of planning the wedding day?

We disliked everything about planning a traditional wedding. Once we decided on hiring Sam, the biggest challenge was narrowing down all the possible locations to the perfect one for us, which was less of a challenge and more of an exciting task for us! Mostly the Covid restrictions and wildfires were a challenge in that process.

Favorite memory of the day?

The day was perfect in every way, but it’s hard to beat listening to each other’s vows while overlooking South Lake Tahoe during a stunning sunrise.

Advice for future couples?

For future couples we have one piece of advice that we follow, not only for wedding planning, but for all decisions we make together in life. Everyone around you will have an opinion about your choices. As a couple, the best thing you can do is ignore the outside comments and always make decisions that make the two of you happy.

We faced criticism when we decided to elope, but listened to what made us happy and hired Sam anyways. It ended up being the experience of a lifetime. There’s not a day that goes by where we don’t think back and are thankful for the gorgeous views, the beautiful pictures, and all the fun we had on our wedding day. We also got to save all the money that would’ve been spent on a traditional wedding and were able to invest in our first home. Only good things come when all your decisions are based on you and your partner’s happiness.

Another cute note about this couple and their killer Lake Tahoe Elopement: 

This is a dream elopement! It’s not every day that you will find couples that are willing to wake up at 3:30 to get ready and go on a 2.5 mi hike and climbing over 1700ft of elevation at 5 in the morning. Their adventure spirit and deep love that they have for one another made this a day to remember! I’m super honored that they put their trust in me. We are pretty much friends now!
