Ariana and Michael first met each other while working at Rainforest Cafe when Ariana was the new girl and Michael had to train her behind the bar. Even though they worked together, they weren’t initially attracted to each other – yet they were destined to be together. Michael was worried she was going to take his shifts and Ariana thought he was rude at the time. Little did they know that they would soon become lifelong soul-mates.
When it came time to propose to Ariana, Michael took her to the pool hall where they had their first date and asked her to be his wife. Fast forward nearly a year, Ariana and Michael were married at a beautiful estate in San Juan Capistrano. The estate was truly like a page from a fairy tale with its storybook mansion nestled among the gorgeous landscape.
“The wedding was everything we could have imagined and some. If we could do it all over again, we would try only making it last longer, “ said Ariana.
Even though there was potential for downpour, the California sun shone through and kept the day dry. Everything about the day was perfect, from the weather to the ceremony. Family and friends came from New York, Arizona, and Mexico to witness these two begin a new life in marriage.
