We are so in love with Taylor and Billy’s stunning Palos Verdes Golf Club Wedding! The touches of glamour throughout this day and Taylor’s Martina Liana wedding gown still has us swooning. Taylor and Billy’s love story is one that will have you feeling giddy, too!
In 2013, Taylor graduated from Southern Methodist and Billy had just moved to Dallas after graduating from University of Delaware. They were connected by a mutual friend and planned to meet up when Billy got settled. Fast forward, six weeks later was SMU Homecoming. After a long day of homecoming festivities, Taylor’s friends decided to continue the fun by going out on the town. Cue Taylor FINALLY meeting Billy for the first time! From the first handshake Taylor gave him (that he will never let her live down), they hit it off right away and knew this was the start of something great.
Their proposal took Taylor completely by surprise! “I had just gotten back into town from a business trip and we were going to dinner with Billy’s family. We were ready to go and then realized it was only 4pm, so we decided to take a walk around the lake next to our apartment. It was pretty hot outside so Billy suggested we sit down on the bench that was conveniently ahead of us in the shade. This also happened to be a very sentimental spot for us over the past few years.”
“So there we were, sitting on the bench… I was taking photos of the lake, ducks and geese – not having a clue that Billy is about to ask me to be his wife! Billy asked me what we should do that weekend. I said, ‘Well tonight we’re going to dinner with your family.’ Billy said, ‘Oh yeah, where should we go? What about Neighborhood Services?’ I laughed at the fact that Billy really thought we could get a reservation for the same night at one of the best restaurants in Dallas, but still opened the OpenTable app to check. No luck. Billy then said, ‘It’s fine, we can just tell them we are celebrating. They’ll definitely give us a table!’ Confused, I said, ‘Celebrating what?’ Next thing I knew, Billy was on one knee asking me to spend the rest of my life with him! I said yes, of course!”
We love how much these two adore one another and make each other laugh. Wishing nothing but happiness and joy for these two newlyweds, we are overjoyed to share their love story with the Figlewicz Photo family!
