Paradise Cove was the perfect location for Karly and Aaron’s destination wedding. The couple envisioned a laid back waterfront wedding with their closest family and friends. Aaron arrived to the ceremony in style on a speed boat and Karly’s adorable niece served as the flower girl. The couple said their “I Dos” lakeside under large palm and beautiful Cypress trees. After their formal photos, Karly and Aaron joined their wedding guests at the venue’s pavilion to celebrate their union.
How They Meet:
Just out of a Nicholas Sparks novel, Karly and Aaron were destined to be together since kids. Each of their fathers played a part in bringing them together through playing on the same football team. Bringing their kids to practice, Aaron and Karly met when Karly was 10 and Aaron was 11. They quickly realized that they lived just right around the corner from one another and became the best of friends. Growing up together and maturing into beautiful adults, they realized that their friendship was much deeper and started a relationship together. During each of their father’s toasts, you could feel the love in the room by how proud they were to have each other’s child in their life. A long time coming, these two were truly destined to be together.
How He Proposed:
Engaged in March of 2015, Aaron knew that his proposal had to include Rose, Karly’s niece who she just adores. While babysitting Rose together, Aaron stepped away for a moment to put out flowers, champagne, and Karly’s favorite cupcake on the table in the kitchen. Walking into the room to see what Aaron was up to, she was surprised to find such a lovely display of all of her favorite things. Of course, the most special trinket on the table was the engagement ring Aaron had purchased for Karly and of which he proposed to her with. Rose being a part of such a monumental moment in their lives made it even that more special.
