Happy Monday loves!
Hope you all enjoyed the last few days of Summer! It’s officially Fall and I am so looking forward to some more fabulous weather!
I have a wonderful and romantic wedding to share with you all today. I think all women find a man wearing a uniform one of the most attractive sights. So gentlemanly, heroic, and dreamy. Our groom today checks off of these boxes! (I openly still have a crush on Richard Gere in An Officer and a Gentleman)
Jacqualin and Larry were married on May 11, 2013 in Gilbert, Arizona. With bagpipers, a Groom in uniform, a chic black and white color scheme, and elegant and traditional elements, this wedding is a dream.

Jacqualin and Larry met on Match.com about three years ago. When Larry asked her out, she originally said no because he was a handsome firefighter that lived out of the area (Tucson). However, Larry continued to request a date until she just couldn’t resist any longer.
When it came time for Larry to propose he made sure Jacqualin felt like a princess when he popped the question in front of the castle at Disney Land! Even though he was very sick (turned out to have bronchitis and a collapsed lung), he was bound and determined to make the proposal of both of their dreams a reality.
On March 3, 2012, Larry and Jacqualin arrived at Disney Land bright and early. Unfortunately, there was a bomb threat and Disney closed its gates for the fourth time in Disney history. Since Larry had not been feeling well, they went back to the hotel, had a nice breakfast and rested until Disney opened back up.
Once the gates opened, Larry and Jacqualin hurried to get back. While waiting to enter, Larry text Jacqualin (since he could not talk) “It is a tradition for me to go to the princess castle first”. Since Jacqualin loves the princess castle she just smiled and said okay. While sitting in front of the princess castle Larry got down on one knee and said “Will you marry me?” Just to make sure there was no confusion (since his voice was gone) he also sent her a message saying “Every princess deserves her own castle and maybe one day I can buy you one. But, until then, can I be your prince?” She began to cry and said “Of course!” Her family then arrived to find a crying Jacqualin with a beautiful ring on her finger and a relieved Larry who was glad he made it through the entire ordeal. They then celebrated by having a romantic dinner inside Pirates of the Caribbean (Jacqualin’s favorite ride) at the Blue Bayou. It really was the perfect proposal.
With a waterfall in the back ground, a bagpiper, and firefighters… you know it had to be awesome!
Yay to online dating! It’s the modern way to meet your Prince Charming!
Congrats to Jacqualin and Larry on their wedding and wishing you all the happiness in the world. Thank you to Brian Minson Wedding Photography for this beauty and for a job well done.
