Several months ago, I met Candace and Josh to talk about their upcoming wedding and what they were looking for in a wedding planner. I loved chatting with them, and am excited for their November wedding! I asked Candace to answer a few questions so you can get to know her a little better :)

When did you know he was "the one"? Did he know before you knew? I knew he was the one when he stuck with me through the good and bad times we've had. I think I knew before he did, but he does take a while to make up his mind on things lol
How did he propose? Were you surprised? It was our last day in Cancun last year, and we took a walk around the beaches. He asked someone to take a photo of us by a palm tree, and then he got down on his knee and asked! After many tears and OMGs, I said yes!
When and where are you two getting married? What made you decide to get married here? We are getting married in November in a barn near our home town. We chose November because we both love the fall season. I wanted a rustic type wedding, and the barn was a perfect place for such a wedding.

Are you guys going on a honeymoon? Where? Why did you choose this location? What are you going to do? Yes, we are going about 2 weeks after the wedding. We are doing 5 days in S.
