Erika & Rob in Los Angeles, CA
Although Rob stares at leading ladies all day, it wasn't until he met Erika that he truly fell in love. When they met on a movie set there was an instant connection.
The Bride Erika Garcia, 33, makeup artist
The Groom Rob Kraetsch, 31, cinematographer
The Date August 18
After three years of dating they took a vacation in Argentina. Two days after they got back, Rob completely surprised Erika with an engagement ring he designed with the help of Erika's sister. The two knew they wanted to be married in a space that reflected both their modern and romantic sides, so they picked a gorgeous garden with lush greenery surrounded by city skyscrapers. Their signature colors -- burnt sienna, chocolate, champagne and olive -- reflected the summer's fade into fall.
