Autumn is my favorite season, and our bride this week, Miss Autumn B., just so happens to be one of my favorite people! I know Autumn from our association in the wedding industry--this girl knows her stuff when it comes to all-things-nuptial. I did the florals for her sister's wedding earlier this year, and I couldn't feel more honored to create the florals for her own wedding which will take place later this week. So a huge congrats and best wishes to my friend and client as she marries the love of her life in just a few short days. Every happiness in the world to you both!
And now, enjoy getting to know a bit about this cute couple's love story.

How did you meet?
Nathan and I met in our singles congregation at church.
What did you do for your first date?
I actually asked Nathan out on our unofficial first date, I invited him to a BYU volleyball game and was so nervous I talked the entire time.
Who said “I love you” first?
Nathan said it first, but only by about 1 second, I couldn’t return the sentiment fast enough!
What is the most unique thing about your relationship?
One unique thing about our relationship is how much we learned about each other before we really began dating. Even before our first date Nathan and I would stay up until 2 a.m. asking each other questions, not wanting to be the first person to end the conversation. For several weeks I fell asleep with a smile on my face and my phone in my hand.
What are your favorite qualities about each other:
She says: One of my favorite things about Nathan is how takes care of me and those around him, I feel very safe and at home with him. I love his intelligence and work ethic, his silly side, and how he is consistently, authentically kind to everyone.
He says: I love Autumn’s fierce passion for life
How did he propose?
Nathan and I have a running bucket list of activities and adventures. One of the items on this list was our desire to carve our names into a tree. So on July 2 we went up the canyon to find the perfect tree, and when we came across a tree where two trunks merged into one we knew we had found our tree. After we carved our names into it Nathan dropped to one knee and proposed.
Where will you go for your honeymoon?
Nathan and I share a devoted love to Southern California, so we will be spending our honeymoon there.
Tell us a bit about your event concept:
Nathan and I are looking forward to our small, intimate dinner at Trefoil Ranch in Provo Canyon. The event is rustic chic, it is elegant comfort. It was very important to us to be surrounded by those we are closest to in a warm, cozy, approachable setting. We chose warm autumn colors and incorporated moss, which we both love and which adds certain natural softness.
