Kaylan & Daniel: Meadow Event Park Wedding Richmond VA
Daniel & Kaylan
May 21, 2016
How They Met
Kaylan tells us, “Daniel and I both went to Longwood University but never knew each other during our time there despite having many mutual friends. It wasn’t until several years after college that we ran into each other at a mutual friend’s engagement party. We went out that night with a group of friends and have been together ever since!
How He Asked
The proposal was quite the surprise! We had gone to look at engagement rings, but I knew that we are just at the beginning of that process. Little did I know he already had a ring and had already began planning a proposal! One beautiful day in August, he told me we were going to Longwood University to go eat lunch and see how the campus has changed. At the time, Longwood had just created a new “Legacy Locks” tradition similar to the famous bridge France. Daniel had had locks made with our names on them for us to hang on the wall.
After lunch, we walked to the wall of locks and hung ours together and continued to walk around campus. Towards the end of our walk, we got to a large magnolia tree, which has personal significance to us, and he got down on one knee and proposed. I was not expecting it at all!”
The Perfect Place
Daniel & Kaylan used recommendations from friends and plenty of research to find a beautiful local venue: Meadow Event Park!
The bride says, “I wanted something very classic with a touch of glitter! I wanted our guests to be wowed by the details.”
The Best Part
“We both loved being surrounded by all our friends and family and seeing everyone having a great time. Getting married was great, too!”
