Opposites Do Attract

Samy and Heath met through mutual friends in 2011. He is from Brazil and she is from Kansas. Although they came from very opposite backgrounds, the two were inseparable and had one of the best times of their lives when vacationing to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico on New Years Eve 2014.  Fast forward to June 30, 2016, the couple started their new life as husband and wife. Let’s take a look at their photos below and wish Samy and Heath the best of their married life!

The Engagement

They were on the beach counting down the seconds until midnight with fireworks and champagne bottles popping everywhere when Heath got down on one knee and poured out his heart. The groom later stated he couldn’t imagine starting another year with Samy just being his girlfriend.

Samy handcrafted drinks for the cocktail hour.


Words From The Bride

“Spend the money on a wedding planner from the beginning. It will be the most well-spent money you will spend. I did it and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way. Also, on the day of the wedding, stop what you are doing for a minute and just look around and pay attention to what everyone is doing and how beautiful your day is. Take in every second of it because it will fly by and that will be the one moment you will remember forever. “

Money Matters

Wedding Budget: $10,000 – $20,000
