They lived two doors down from each other junior year of college, but it wasn’t until a mutual friend introduced them that the finally met. As fate would have it, they both changed plans last minute to join the group at a college bar where they met, danced all night, and flirted over cheesy bacon fries and milkshakes at Steak n’ Shake! A couple weeks later, Becca invited Julio to her birthday party at her apartment. They talked all night, and ready for this? Julio offered to help Becca clean up the next day. <3 Of all the details Becca shared about their meeting story, *that* is the detail that stole my heart!!
Their proposal story couldn’t be sweeter or more “them!” It was Becca’s 30th birthday trip to Disney and they were staying at the Boardwalk. They usually end the night sitting on the patio at Atlantic Dance Hall or play some Boardwalk games. Julio suggested they play the water gun game and when Becca won for once, the game host handed her an iPad. It was a video compilation of her family and friends wishing her a happy birthday! The last video was Julio saying her birthday gift was hidden in the bushes of the Sea Breeze Point gazebo, and she needed to go find it! They hustled over and while Becca started looking through the bushes, she turned around to see Julio on one knee.
Now that you know their story, you can truly appreciate details of their day, like a wedding reception at the Dance Hall and sneaking out from the reception to play some Boardwalk games!! :)
Huge love and thanks to this team for making the day so seamless!!

Cannot stress enough the value of a suite when getting ready. Having one room to stage/ photograph details while one room is your hair and makeup salon is priceless.
It was supposed to poooooour all day, but lucky for us, this was the worst it got! And as far as venues go in the rain, you can’t really beat the Grand Floridian!
Married and off to the Boardwalk!! <3
Part Two here! :)
