How did the proposal take 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.
What was your fondest wedding moment?
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!
