Real Mia Grace Bride: Daphanee and Justin
Congratulations to Daphanee and Justin on their beautiful wedding! Their love story is nothing short of perfect. They went from junior high best friends to falling in love.
My Mia Grace experience was amazing! The second I stepped into my Maggie Sottero gown I knew it was the one! Madison knew just what I wanted and she didn't stop looking for that perfect one for me!
Their Love Story:
Daphanee and Justin met when they were just 12 years old in junior high. Their goofy personalities instantly brought them together and they quickly became best friends. They dated on and off throughout high school, but lost touch a few years after graduation.
However, the story was just beginning! Justin messaged Daphanee and the two reconnected. They nurtured their friendship for two years before solidifying their relationship. They have been inseparable since!
The proposal was a complete surprise. Originally, Justin planned a day downtown which included a nice dinner and a carriage ride. However, Justin and Daphanee were invited last minute on a trip to Las Vegas with some family and friends. Justin couldn't pass up the opportunity. All twelve people on the trip helped Justin keep the secret from Daphanee; everyone knew except her!
The group was headed out to celebrate a friend's birthday. There was a nice dinner planned, a limousine ride to the Bellagio, and to watch a light show at the fountains. Daphanee's favorite Elton John song, "Your Song," began to play. Justin proposed to Daphanee after the song was over and she said yes! Daphanee's dad took a video of the proposal and they were able to take incredible pictures after the engagement. To make the moment even more special, Daphanee walked down the aisle to "Your Song" on her and Justin's wedding day.
