She could barely contain her excitement during that first phone call. She told us about her guy – how they had been through the good moments, and through some of life’s hardest moments, and he always made her smile. He thought the world of her, and planned just the right moment to ask her the big question… It had to be special, romantic and epic, and in just the right setting to make the memory of a lifetime. Finally the day came, a special airplane carried the two of them to a remote island off the coast of Alaska, and with a view that made time stand still, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes.
Meet Casi and Evan.
When we got to meet them in person for the first time, and every time we’ve spent with them since, we have laughed until we’ve almost cried. They are the kind of couple who walks into a room and brings the joy to everyone with them. We knew immediately that their wedding would be a fun and memorable celebration, one that would also carry the beauty and meaning of the bride’s Greek heritage. It couldn’t have turned out more lovely!
How stunning is this Greek Orthodox cathedral? Love!
Casi was glowing on her wedding day!
Our bride decided to have a “first look” with her mom, and it was perfect. There were so many beautiful emotions, and love, when her mom saw her in her wedding gown, for the first time…
We love that everyone remembered the man who had made the biggest impact on Casi since the day she was born – her dad. Casi’s day brought a beautiful tribute to her father, and everyone both smiled and cried as they remembered him as a friend, a husband, and a father. We know he would have smiled as he watched his daughter walk down the aisle, and swayed with her as they danced into the night.
A stunning and beautiful ceremony…
Love this moment!
So happy for these two! Y’all are the cutest!
Wrapping up a beautiful day, with a surprise appearance by TCU
‘s Super Frog, and a last dance!
Casi and Evan, we are so happy for you both! Marriage is an adventure, and you two have already created something special. We hope you bring each other laughter and happiness for years to come, and that you both enjoy the adventure! We’re couldn’t be more happy that we got to know you! Y’all keep in touch, we can’t wait to hear from you down the road!
Matt & Ivy
Story from the bride:
Evan and I didn’t meet in the traditional way as our parents did with a formal introduction. In 2011, we both decided to sign up for Match.com and see where it took us. On August 1, 2011, Evan sent me a wink. So…I decided to wink back. 😉 After messaging each other, we started talking on the phone. On August 3, 2011, we talked all night – 9 hours! We even watched TV together! Everything felt natural and just meant to be. We decided to meet the next night at IHOP near TCU. From that first meeting on, we have been together ever since. We have been through long-distance (Evan moving to Corpus Christi, TX), family woes, and many other bumps along the way. We would not want to do this with anyone else and are blessed to have grown together this journey called “Life.” During a vacation to Alaska with my family in July 2014, Evan took me on a float plane ride through the Tongas Forest where he proposed to me on a little island. The way it all happened was very much us…not graceful! LOL! We had some different ideas of how to envision our wedding when it came to colors, favors, flowers, and some other things. We did decide to have pie for Evan since he doesn’t like cake, have our engagement session at the State Fair of Texas (we love to have FUN and had a blast doing it there!), Greek (my family) and Texas/Southern food (Evan’s family), our own wine courtesy of my mother, and décor which embodied Greek through real olive trees and colored coordinated pumpkins to represent the time of the year. We also had a surprise guest – SUPER FROG!! I went to TCU and this was the BEST surprise of the evening courtesy of my Mom. I probably danced with him more than Evan…LOL! When it came down to it, the most important vision was having our family and friends there to spend the day and enjoy with. We could not have asked for a better way of starting our journey through marriage.
Matt & Ivy – Thank you for taking the time to capture the best day of our lives. Every time we look at our pictures, it brings us back and makes us want to do it all over again. We couldn’t have done it without you and we are so thankful to have befriended you. Love you!
