This Bay Harbor Yacht Club wedding of Bianca and Aaron was so much fun! After meeting their freshmen year of college and living across the country from each other for a bit, they still made their love last from now till forever.

We always ask our couples some questions for us to get to know them a little more along with their favorite wedding moments. Take a look into what Aaron and Bianca had to say

Fun Questions from the Couple

The First Meeting

January of 2008 as freshman in college at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Through a mutual friend – a sorority sister of Bianca’s who was dating a teammate of Aaron’s.

Where the Proposal took place

Lake Tahoe, CA. Aaron flew his sister out from Michigan for 6 hours to set up a surprise picnic and take photographs. Aaron told Bianca they were going to a nice dinner, and making a pit-stop at one of the beaches to take a picture since they’d been in hiking clothes all weekend. Bianca was surprised by a gorgeous picnic setup… and Aaron getting down on one knee.

Fondest Moment Shared

Our dance floor! Our wedding was mixed cultures and the union of the two cultures and families was absolutely beautiful – seeing Bianca’s side arm in arm with Aaron’s side dancing to the Albanian music! Also hearing and pronouncing our self-written vows was very special and meaningful.
