Ann and Jensen are a joy to work with. I love how they are honest and not afraid to share their feelings or thoughts as we plan the wedding details. I am excited to see them start their married lives together here in the Bay Area as they have been living across the nation from each other.

Below are their answers to my 8 questions that I love to ask my clients… 

1. How did you meet?

We met the summer of 2016 at an Indian catholic convention in Texas.

2. Describe the proposal.

Ann went to California to spend her birthday weekend with Jensen. He told her that they were having a double date with one of his best friend’s and fiancé and that they were going to some kind of dinner event with the Mayor of San Francisco. So she took an uber to his friend’s event place to meet up with them. The door was left unlocked and as soon as Jensen opened the door, Ann knew what was about to happen. There was a trail of rose petals on the floor leading inside and as she walked in, there were candles everywhere and some of her favorite Disney love songs playing and of course the photographers capturing every moment. She kept walking and he brought her to the roof where there was a violinist playing “A Thousand Years” and a huge balloon sign saying “Will you marry me?” They walked to the middle of the rooftop and there was a small treasure chest sitting on the table (which is something she has always wanted). He hands her the key and asks her to open it. She tried to unlock it but her hands were shaking so much from excitement that he had to unlock it for her. Then Ann opened it up and there was a small box sitting on top of a bunch of jewels. He took out the box and got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Ann said “YES” and gave Jensen a huge hug!! He turned her around and a whole bunch of their friends and family were standing at the other end of the rooftop and they all started cheering!

3. How are you feeling as your wedding is drawing near? How many days left?

We are stressed and excited at the same time. It will be in 54 days!!

4. What are you most nervous about?

Honestly, we are most nervous about Ann moving to the other side of the country the week before the wedding.

5. What are you most excited about?

We are most excited about the fact that we will no longer have to deal with a long distance relationship and we will get to spend all of our free time together.

6. What vision and/or theme do you have for your wedding day?

Elegant and fun. Our color theme is pink, gold, and white.

7. Why have you hired “Ah… New Beginnings”? What do you like about Arlene?

We met Arlene almost a year ago when she coordinated one of our close friend’s wedding and we thought she did an amazing job. She was very thorough and kept track of every detail and made sure their wedding went super smoothly and they didn’t have to worry about anything. Our friends highly recommended her after their experience.

8. What do you hope to accomplish with “Ah… New Beginnings” as your wedding coordinator?

We hope to have everything run smoothly and according to plan so we can also have fun on our wedding day and not have to worry about things going wrong.
