Another fabulous Simply by Tamara Nicole couple . . .
is ALREADY married! BUT this summer with having a baby and working so much, time got away.  However, I'd love to share this because this couple truly is so sweet and just perfect for each other:)

Simply Engaged

Here's a glimpse into the sweet couple that is
{Jennifer & Dustin}
. . . 

Wedding Date: August 16th 2014
Wedding Location: Swiftwater Cellars

{How did you two love birds meet}

"We both met randomly on February 23 of 2007 at the Longhorn in Auburn, WA. We both were persuaded to go out by our friends. Once at the Longhorn, Dustin and one of his friends came over to our table because they knew my friend Britt who had went to school with one of his sisters.  
Dustin and I connected right away and have been together ever since."

{How did he pop the big question?}

Every year a big group of friends plan a winter vacation for Presidents Day weekend. Typically, we rent out a lodge in Sun River Oregon and go skiing/snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor. However, this year was different because of a big special surprise. We decided to go to Whistler, Canada a world renown ski resort where the 2010 Winter Olympics was held. This was no ordinary place to go skiing/snowboarding. It has a beautiful village with shopping, restaurants, plenty of night life, and fun things to do. This happens to be the first place Dustin & I took a vacation together so it has special meaning. Dustin planned an extravagant night out for everyone to go snowmobiling to the top of Blackcomb Mt. to a lodge named the Crystal Hut where they would be dining over a Fondue dinner with live acoustic music and singing. Dustin asked me to come with him out on the balcony in the middle of a snowstorm and proposed. He stuttered for a while, but finally mustered up the courage to spit it out! After returning to the cabin everyone was clapping and cheering. The musician then began to play Wonderful Night by Eric Clapton. It was indeed the beginning of a wonderful night and life together where we shared, adventure, family, friends, and happiness.

{What is your fave date spot/activity?}

We love to snowboard, hike, work on house projects together, crossfit and our favorite date night is a dinner out on the town sharing a bottle of wine.

{What is your fave part about the wedding planning process?}

When we picked our wedding venue. We both feel in love with Suncadia and Swiftwater Cellars because of the serene views. It was the perfect venue because it reminded Dustin of the outdoors where he grew up and it also had the winery feel that I was looking for our big day.

{Advice for planning a wedding to other couples?}

Even though wedding planning can be extremely stressful, enjoy the process together, include your fiancé in the decisions, delegate tasks and most of all relax because everything will all fall into place.
