Just picture that young blonde couple as a Chinese + Mexican/White couple.
We didn't even bother looking anywhere else. It's perfect and you can't convince us otherwise.
The date is set for December 27th of this year. We were at first considering New Year's Eve, but that did not work out as planned due to Brandon's scheduling with the Army. The 27th is $500 cheaper too so it all came together perfectly.
We sign a contract and put down a 50% nonrefundable deposit next Monday. There's no backing out now!
P.S. I used the word "perfect" five times in this post. Can you tell how happy I am to have a venue and a date already set?

Bridesmaid 1: Tiffany S. was the first one to hear about my crush on the boy in gym class. She and I have known each other since the 5th grade, but we didn't start really getting to know each other until the 7th. At that point, we were doing sleepovers every Friday night at my house and talk to each other about boys, school, and family until we fell asleep. This brilliant girl attends UC Berkeley, and we don't nearly get to spend enough time together. Tiffany knows every aspect of my relationship with Brandon, and I don't know how she is not sick of hearing me talk about him after four and a half years. Perhaps she is just that patient of a person.
These five people will hear me blab on about the wedding for almost a full year. They probably can't wait for it to all be over with.
When he proposed, he pulled out the ring, and asked "Is it the right one?" I swooned. The first thing I said (or squealed) when I laid my sleepy 3am eyes on the ring was "Pretty!"
Can you blame me though? Look at that baby sparkle. The jeweler who sold Brandon the center diamond described it as "orgasmic". It has channel set princess diamonds and a squared off bottom. I believe it is 1.33 carats, far more than I need, but I'm not going to complain. The designer A. Jaffe did an amazing job, and so did Brandon!
