The couple exchanged vows at Mt. Olivet United Methodist Church -- they worked with the reverend to really personalize the ceremony. Lani’s father walked her down the aisle and one of her friend’s played piano.

Lani loved the look of the dark wood tables so opted out of tablecloths. The tables were topped with simple centerpieces made up of blue hydrangeas and votive candles.

The wedding cake was three classic, round tiers decorated simply with gray ribbon bands and dots. Fresh pink roses topped it off.

Lani & Matthew in Arlington, VA

Just less than three years after their first date, Matt’s parents invited the couple to vacation with them at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. As the two were hiking along Lake Moomaw, they approached a scenic overlook. They sat down on a bench and when Lani turned to grab the snacks out of her bag, Matt got on one knee and proposed.

Picking the city to marry at was one of the toughest parts –- they eventually picked Arlington (where they live now). It was a destination wedding for most of their guests and the perfect spot for a Memorial Day weekend celebration. When they met the coordinator at Le Meridien in Arlington, they knew they had found their venue.
