Say Hello to YLE Bride…Charnele

Orlando Wedding Planner

 

How did you two meet:

Carl and I both met in 2009. We both worked at Taco Bell. Taco Lovers! I don’t know why he worked for Taco Bell as much as he loves Burgers. I call him Junior Bacon Cheese. Plus his real name is Carl Baker Jr so it all just goes together lol.

When did you know he was going to be your husband, did he know before you:

I knew that he was going to be my husband because of who he was. Carl and I are a match made in heaven. The sacrifices that I have witnessed Carl put in for this relationship is a beautiful thing. He has always made me feel special in every aspect. He has helped me become a better person and whenever you can bring someone into your life that can change your stubborn ways you definitely have a winner. We complete each other. Many of our family and friends refer to us the Power Couple!

How did he propose, when, where:

Well Carl is a very shy person rather he will admit it or not. Carl proposed on Sept 15, 2012! Yes it’s been a long time lol. I was asleep and Carl woke me up but he was sitting on the Floor beside the bed right next to me. He told me happy birthday and asked me to marry him. I honestly thought it was just one of my many dreams about us being engaged but it was reality. I immediately cried and said “Yes!” I called up my entire family! I must admit he has good taste. lol

Say Hello to a YLE Bride…Wendy

Orlando Wedding Planner

When Wendy first contacted me I could hear the excitement in her voice, she was so ready to be married and her heart was just contagious! Later on I found out that Wendy and one of my other brides were sorority sisters and they were both getting married the same month….and they are both YLE Brides! Seriously, how cool is that!!! It’s such a small world but I’m so thankful to have someone so sweet become a YLE Bride.

How did you two meet:

We were set up on a blind date, we were both so nervous meeting each other for the first time, but we hit it off the moment we saw each other. We talked for hours that evening and from there our romance blossomed.

When did you know he was going to be your husband, did he know before you:

From the start we both knew that this relationship was different from anything we had ever experienced. He says he knew from the start that I was going to be his wife. I knew the weekend we celebrated our first anniversary. We had just arrived to Key West when I received an e-mail that I had to be in Orlando the following morning to take an exam to fulfill a requirement for grad school. He drove back 9 hours through the night so I could make it back in time for the exam that morning. He never once got upset or angry and was nothing but supportive and encouraging the entire ride back, telling me that we were going to ace that exam. It blew me away and brought me to tears. The amount of love and support that he showed to me that day was amazing. I knew then that this was my husband and the future father of my children.

How did he propose, when, where:

He proposed on June 24th. I actually foiled his original plans for a proposal, lol!! He had plans to take me out to a fancy dinner when I got home from class. I came home from class very late and didn’t feel too well so I told him that I wasn’t up for dinner that night, he had to think fast and went to get us some takeout. He hid the ring in the bag and told me that he heard that there were surprises hidden away in the bag. I was very confused and thought he was just being silly, when I looked in the bag and saw the box, it still didn’t hit me, I thought it might be a pair of nice earrings since our anniversary was coming up soon. When I looked up at him he was down on one knee, I started to panic, he grabbed the box and told me he loved me with everything he had and wanted to start I lives together. Everything was a blur through all the tears; he completely caught me off guard. He told me that he wanted us to start our second year together as an engaged couple. We went down to Key West the next day to celebrate. It was one of the best weekends of my life!!

Say Hello to a YLE Bride…Stephanie

Orlando Wedding Planner

I am so happy to introduce a new YLE bride, Stephanie! I can’t wait to work with these two and not just because David is a Gator fan (!!!!).

How did you two meet:

We met through a mutual friend when I was 13 and he was 14. We
stayed friends through high school and then lost touch when I went to college. We reconnected in 2013 and the rest is history.

When did you know he was going to be your husband, did he know before you:

He says he knew before I did so I’ll let him have that one lol but I think I knew when he dedicated Bryan Adams’ “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman” to me one night. I heard the line about him seeing the unborn children in her eyes and I realized that I wanted that, that I loved that he saw that same future with me.

How did he propose, when, where:

He proposed on August 26th in Puerto Rico. We went on a hike down El Yunque, a rain forest in Puerto Rico, to La Mina Falls, a waterfall where visitors can swim. He told my sister to take pictures of us before we got wet so we stood in front of the falls and posed. I started to walk away and he says “wait one more” and starts to kneel as he reaches in his pocket. I saw what he was doing. I knew what he was doing. But I panicked slightly and asked him what he was doing lol. I don’t think I ever really SAID yes but my tears were flowing (heavily) and I nodded and hugged him. I was taken by complete surprise. As were my sister and niece who were screaming and crying too lol. I want to add that he actually asked my dad for my hand. Which happens like never nowadays. He took him out to lunch and asked him. It was a big deal for me that he did that. He was the only one that knew about it. When I called and told my mom she freaked out and dropped her phone and started crying. They did good at keeping it secret.

Describe your wedding in three words:

Love, Family/Friends, Fun. I want our day to be about those 3 things. It sounds generic but we both love each other and our families and having fun. And as much as it is our day, our families/friends have played a huge part in our relationship and in who we are. We want traditions and the romanticism of it all with fun details about us.

What are you looking forward to the most on your wedding day:

I have to pick one thing?! Probably seeing the looks on people’s faces. From my parents’ first glance at me in my dress, to him seeing me walk down the aisle, to our closest friends seeing that we’ve made it. Just being surrounded by love.

 

What do you two do in your free time:

We love movies and music and are frequent AMC goers as well as concert events. We try to spend as much time as possible with our 2 year American Pitbull Terrier Stark (named after Lord Eddard Stark from Game of Thrones, as in his registered name is Lord Eddard Stark lol). Football is a HUGE deal for us. From arguing about Seminoles v. Gators to watching our NFL teams play. And spend time with each other. We love eating at new
restaurants and seeing what our city has to offer. He was born and raised in Orlando and I’ve been here since I was 6 but we love discovering new things.
