Richard and Chiakis’ Romantic Garden Wedding

The morning seemed like any other as Richard and Chiakis hiked around Lodi Lake. Upon spotting a deer, Richard took off saying he would herd it toward Chiakis so she could take a picture. Chiakis traced his steps, waiting for him to reappear. Instead, she was greeted by their friend, Hailey. Hailey handed Chiakis a long stem calla lily (her favorite flower), a gift bag, and a love quote written on a piece of paper. The gift bag, Hailey said, contained “something old.” Chiakis continued down the path only to find more of her friends, each possessing a love quote, another long stem calla lily, and that little something for her wedding day. Finally, when Chiakis had received her “something blue,” her friend hinted that Richard was not far. Chiakis ran up to Richard and there he asked her to be his wife.

“It was undoubtedly the most creative and personal proposal and really sums us up perfectly. We are both romantics who are a little dorky and take pride in spoiling each other. We are both very hands on and creative, and this is definitely reflected in our wedding plans. We hope that the personal touches to our wedding will create an eclectic and relaxed environment where our guests can have fun and be their own quirky selves!” – Chiakis
