How They Met

Kharon and Jimmy met thirteen years ago in Southern California. They started talking in their apartment complex’s laundry room, and before they knew it, it was 3am! They decided to continue their conversation at a pancake house and kept talking until it was time for them both to go to work!

How He Asked

Jimmy told Kharon he wanted to take her to a nice restaurant near the beach. Little did she know, Jimmy had planned the evening perfectly. After dinner, the two took a walk down the beach to watch the sunset. Kharon says, “Right at sunset, he got down on one knee and proceeded to say some amazing things and asked me to marry him. I was in total shock! We turned and looked out over the ocean and there were dozens of dolphins jumping out of the water. It was like they were congratulating us. It was such a perfect moment. Jimmy still says he had planned for them to be there.”

Decor Details

The two wanted to elaborate on the beautiful vintage feel of the Virginia Cliffe Inn while also incorporating their own personalities. They chose champagne and chocolate brown, great colors for fall! Kharon made all of the bouquets for the wedding party and filled small mason jars with coffee beans and tea light candles to create a fresh coffee scent.

The Best Part

When we asked about her favorite part of the day, Kharon says, “Mine was walking down the aisle to my new husband in my dress that my mom picked out before she passed.” Kharon and Jimmy also love to brag about their great team at the Virginia Cliffe Inn who worked closely with them to make their day theirs.
