Michele and Brad’s Palos Verdes Golf Club Wedding was a stunning, classic affair! This day was non-stop glamour, and we are so excited to share!
This beautiful couple met during their freshman year at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. They spent their undergraduate years as close friends, and didn’t begin to date until after graduation while Brad was working on his MBA. It is their long friendship turned love that they site as the perfect foundation for their strong and loving relationship.
You can find this sweet couple out and about town trying new restaurants, taking an early morning walk around their neighborhood, or cheering on their SMU Mustangs to victory! Michele knew that Brad was the one not only because of their shared values, but because of his easy going attitude and his ability to make her laugh at any time. Brad admires how hard Michele works, as well as her fun spirit and beauty!
After years of friendship and dating, Brad knew it was time to ask Michele to be his bride. Michele’s recollection of the day has us giddy! “I walked into my apartment after the gym on Friday and noticed the apartment was perfectly clean. The counter had a big bouquet of lilies (my favorite flowers) and a bottle of champagne laid out. I remember looking at Brad, who was impeccably dressed, and asking him why the apartment was so clean. In mind I knew what was happening but my body couldn’t react. I remember Brad saying, “you know what’s happening, Michele” and he told me to look on the counter because there was a present for me. I saw the ring box hidden behind the flowers and immediately started crying happy tears. Brad got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and of course I said yes!”
After celebrating together, Michele and Brad met up with some friends for dinner to share the news. Little did Michele know, there was another surprise in the works for her! While retelling their proposal story over drinks with their pals, Michele’s sister Katie walked up! Brad had flown her in from San Francisco to Dallas to be part of her sister’s celebration. Michele, of course, shared many happy tears with her sister, and the celebration went on into the night with their nearest and dearest!
We love how close Michele and Brad are to their friends and family. Their Palos Verdes Golf Club Wedding incorporated so many fun details to bring joy to their favorite people. The whole day was truly a party to celebrate the love of this wonderful couple! Thank you so much to Michele and Brad, from the bottom of our hearts, for letting us partake in such a gorgeous day!
