From Dating App to Exchanging Vows

Some people use dating apps in hopes of finding their match. But for Larissa and Brittany, it took more than just a “swipe right” or a “like react” to get to the moment of tying the knot.

Larissa and Brittany did not just start talking on a dating app; they also had a common friend and were enrolled in the same bachelor’s program. Romance did not easily start between them, especially with Larissa’s “are you gonna do your homework” retort to Brittany.

Fate had its way and eight months later, Larissa and Brittany met at a bar. This was the time they really got to know each other better and share their personalities. As the song “Take It Easy” by Eagles came on, the couple also took it easy and let their personal charms bring them closer to each other. From that night on, the two have been inseparable.

 Two years into their relationship, both of them felt it was time to seal their fate together. Each of them made a plan, but Brittany was lucky to have executed hers first. She got down on one knee and asked Larissa to “be her gypsy soul forever.”

The ambiance that the desert gives off made the couple decide to have their wedding in Las Vegas. The landscape of the Red Rock Canyon did not only match their personalities; it also captured the feel of their relationship. Their destination wedding enchanted their guests, and Larissa and Brittany especially enjoyed their dreamy first look and the exciting champagne spray. The day was fun, romantic and unforgettable.

Love comes in many forms and in different ways. Some come easily, some take time. But in the end, it will always be worth it all.
