To Have and To Protect

Bella and Daniel

Man and woman embrace in front of wedding venue

Bella and Daniel were recently married, and their story is as romantic as they come. The two met when they both generously offered to help a mutual friend move. Months later, Bella learned that Daniel had inquired about her ever since. The two planned a lunch date. Immediately after lunch, Daniel sent Bella flowers to her office! The rest, as they say, is history.

Saying Yes!

Daniel planned a Friday proposal, but Bella was dealing with inconveniences at work. The weather was rough, and the two decided it was best not to go through with a fancy date night, which Bella thought was nice, but unnecessary. Daniel was forced to push his proposal one more day.

The next day, the two were set to go on another fancy dinner date. Once downtown, Daniel insisted Bella and him take a scenic walk near the famous Alamo. He explained to Bella an analogy about the Alamo. The Alamo was built to protect and, in the same way, Daniel intended to protect her; forever.

The Big Day 

The couple chose Allen Farm Haus for the setting of their big day! Bella’s father officiated the wedding and made it all the more special. Mitzi, owner and coordinator of Bride on a Budget Events, planned an exceptional day. According to the bride, she was the couple’s saving grace as she adjusted to an unforeseen cold front and kept the day flowing seamlessly. Other vendors that helped make the couple’s day special include Power Sounds DJ service and Heavenly Gourmet catering.
