I liked Ariana right away thanks to our mutual love for all things furry. We spent our first meeting chatting quite a bit about our pets, but of course gabbed about her and Matthew and their wedding plans too. They had a gorgeous Persian-American ceremony on the lawn at Gaillardia Country Club, but chose to say their vows privately beforehand. They did so, though, without seeing one another… and believe me, you could tell Matt wanted to glance at his beautiful bride. We so love moments like that. A belly dancer entertained guests during cocktail hour, and then everyone partied the night away.
p.s. Ariana is a wedding planner herself, and I have to give her credit for enjoying her own wedding day rather than trying to run it.
