TELL US THE PROPOSAL STORY…
Cody had asked Kylie a few days prior if she wanted to go hiking or to the Botanical Gardens the coming weekend and being the avid hiker Kylie was, she chose the Botanical Gardens. That Saturday they got ready, went to Starbucks and headed to the Botanical Gardens. Looking back now, Kylie should have known something was up because Cody was super on edge about leaving his truck parked in the Starbucks parking lot while they waited for their coffee (the ring was in the truck). Cody then ducked out and told Kylie he would wait in the car. They got to the Botanical Gardens pretty early and started wandering through the gardens when all of a sudden, someone else was proposing in the exact same spot that Cody was going to, (and eventually did) propose. They both looked at each other and were completely shocked since they had never seen that happen in real life! They walked around the gardens some more and Cody kept asking Kylie if she wanted to go take a picture back at that spot where someone else proposed. Kylie told him they would get back up there eventually and to just take their time. When they finally made it back up to the pond with the lily pads, Cody asked a random stranger to take their picture. They took a few pictures and when they were done Cody asked the guy to take one more. Kylie slowly realized what was happening and what felt like 45 minutes of silence to Cody (whoops!), she finally managed to say yes! Kylie is not easy to surprise but Cody managed to do so and it was one of the happiest days of her life!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING MEMORY?
How can we choose just one! I think seeing all of our family and friends in one place was a really special moment. There were guests that we hadn’t seen in a very long time, so seeing everyone in one room definitely made our wedding memorable.
where did you go on your honeymoon?
We enjoyed a trip to Negril, Jamaica! We stayed at Couples Swept Away and had a great time. We had a private candlelit dinner on the beach, went on a catamaran cruise, and went snorkeling! It was so great to just relax after wedding planning for about a year.
how was your experience with allegro?
Working with Allegro was a dream. We enjoyed working with Dori throughout the planning process and she was always able to answer our many questions and she did so with a smile. Our DJ, Eric, was great! He called us a couple of days before the wedding and we went over the timeline and the songs that we wanted played. The day of went exactly as planned and DJ Eric played all of our “must have” songs and much more!
