Elizabeth and Michael have a story that could easily make for a script for a rom-com. Picture this: two kids who grew up in small town Pella, Iowa who attended the same church, mom’s worked together, ran cross-country together in high school and always had a little spark between them. They dated long distance in college for a bit and then…. it didn’t work out. Fast forward 3 years and then something happened. They grew up a bit, had hard conversations, laughed and knew they really wanted to make a go of it! I can hear the romantic music swelling right now in the background!
The Temple for Performing Arts was an obvious choice for Chloe and Kian to wed because of the architecture and the elegance it would bring to their formal affair. Plus with the help of White Willow Events they were able to incorporate much loved traditions from both of their cultures.
From L.A. to Nashville, then back to L.A., Carson and Julana have had a whirlwind of moves, personal and career highlights, and a wedding – all in the last 2 years! Originally, these two met at the local gym, which is totally not surprising. They love staying healthy and active, going on hikes and exploring and being in nature, and of course involving their sweet dog Willie in the mix. Fast forward to July 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, and Carson popped the question during their annual family lake vacation while playing a favorite song he had WRITTEN on his phone for her I’m guessing if it would have been me, I would have been too nervous to try to play a song live as well – so kudos to Carson for thinking ahead!
