Back in April of this year I received a message on my LinkedIn profile from a college friend who had just got engaged. She wanted me to send her pricing on our wedding packages to possibly hold it at Sycuan Golf Resort. I was so excited for her and for the possibility of being able to host her special day… and then she booked Sycuan! I am constantly reminded of why I am in this profession by the wonderful couples I meet and the brides who turn into friends; but it is even more special when it is someone you already know and now they have trusted you with the biggest day of their life! Whitney is just like me (hence why we both work in this industry) with great attention to detail, very organized, and knew exactly what she wanted (and didn’t want). She was such a pleasure to work with and it was a very special moment seeing her walk down the aisle to the love of her life. (And it was like a mini college reunion seeing some of my old classmates!)
Here is the story of Whitney & Joey, as told by Whitney:
Joey and I met through my roommate, who was Joe’s coworker. My roommate invited me to a work function at a bar they were having. Joey stood out to me that night as he had the prettiest and most mischievous looking eyes behind his full bearded face. He barely said anything to me but was friendly. I learned the next day he was in a relationship but in all honesty I just got out of one and wasn’t looking or interested in dating. Over the following year I’d occasionally tell my roommate to tell him hi for me and vice versa. Or we’d bump into each other when out with friends at the bar. It was a year later that Joey asked me out. We dated a year and a half before he proposed. We were spending a long weekend with our neighbors in Vegas. Joey is a big meat lover so we had dinner Delmonico at The Venetian hotel. After dinner, on a whim, we decided to take the gondola ride through the hotel. I was surprised Joey was game to do it because he’s not into that kind of stuff. And by that, I mean romantic stuff. When the gondolier asked us if we were celebrating anything I shrugged it off and casually said ‘no, we are just in town having dinner.’ And then Joey added “Well actually, I am about to ask this pretty girl to marry me” as he proceeded to unbuckle and get on one knee. I was floored! I couldn’t believe he had planned this out! Turns out he was so nervous the entire ride out to Vegas because he didn’t want me feeling the ring in his pocket. He got all dressed up for dinner when the rest of us wanted to wear jeans. And he only had one beer at dinner, which is very unusual! My neighbors were in on it too I learned. The husband had known for weeks but Joey only told the wife that day when we stopped for breakfast in Barstow and I used the restroom. She didn’t believe him at breakfast and shared that when he agreed to the gondola ride she knew he was serious, because she also knew that he’s not a romantic guy. It was one of the happiest days of my life besides our wedding day. I married a hilarious, sexy, kind, and generous man who absolutely adores me. The gondola proposal was even more special when we rode a real gondola in Venice for our honeymoon.
