Their story.

Usually people enlist the help of their best friends when pulling off an awesome wedding proposal but most people don’t think about using “Man’s Best Friend” which is exactly what Andrew did. Sandra came home one day after 3 years of dating Andrew to find all 3 of their dogs wearing tee-shirts that spelled out Will-You-Marry Me and of course, how can you possibly say no to that?? 

Sandra and Andrew chose the beautiful Eldorado Canyon for their special day and chose to be surrounded by a close circle of friends and family. They said their guests loved the venue and got to even explore a little which made it extra magical. The couple stole away a meaningful “first look” before joining loved ones which they described as “perfect” because they couldn’t wait to see each other!

Sandra donned a gorgeous strapless lace gown with a cascading train that she bought from a quaint consignment boutique in Guelph, Canada called Six Pence Bridal and complimented it with long wavy hairdo for a classic vibe. Sandra gushed over the amazing hair and makeup job by Joanna and Brie from Amelia C & Co and also Gaia Flowers for completing this look with a stunning bouquet.

The couple chose to personalize gifts for their wedding with the help of Etsy and custom-made everything from the invitations, to welcome cards and menus, to personalized tote bags.

After the ceremony the newlyweds headed with guests to Firefly right off the strip which is known for their great service and striking decor. They credit Ana Hernandez, their wedding coordinator, for not only making their big day run smoothly but also picking out the most delicious food for their menu. Friends and family are still raving about it apparently! They chose a cake from Freed’s Bakery that was so amazing there was none left which is always a great sign. Here’s to many more years of perfect celebrations for these two lovebirds!
