Our Story

Love finds you when you least expect it. Larissa and Joe met on a surprisingly warm night in late fall of 2012. Earlier in the night, both Larissa and Joe had resigned themselves to a quiet night in. However, fate intervened in the form of friends, both of whom insisted that a night out was exactly what each person needed. Unbeknownst to them, the simple decision to go out with friends would lead to crossing each other's path. Larissa did her best to conceal the glances she threw in Joe's direction. And Joe was drawn in by the girl with the pretty eyes from across the crowded bar. Eventually the two found one another and hit it off. They have been together ever since.

In March of 2019, Joe took Larissa to the Fire Wave Trail in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, to visit a red rock formation that Larissa had always wanted to see. With no one else around, Joe got down on one knee to propose. Larissa, distracted by the natural beauty of the rock formations, would not turn around. So Joe said "hey, how about this rock?" gaining Larissa's attention. When she finally turned around, Larissa saw Joe with the ring in-hand. and Larissa said yes before Joe could even finish asking the question. The two embraced and captured the moment in the picture above.

We are so excited to share our story and our love with you! We cannot wait for our big day with all of you!

All our love, Larissa & Joe
