Rebecca and Greg’s wedding at the Prado is full of soft, romantic details and plenty of glamour.
grand surprise. So when she jetted to Hawaii for her family’s annual trip, little did she know that Greg, who was supposedly in San Francisco, was secretly following her with a ring in his pocket.
One evening, Rebecca’s sister, feigning an argument with her husband, asked her to go on a beach walk. Suddenly, a sweet-smelling tuberose lei slipped over Rebecca’s head from behind. She turned, and there stood Greg. “I was in shock. He led me to a gazebo decorated with plumeria flowers, got on one knee and said, ‘Rebecca, will you give me your forever?’”
After a big “yes” and lots of happy tears, Rebecca discovered her brother-in-law had been filming from the bushes and that her entire family was watching from their balcony above. “I wanted the proposal spot to be a place where we could always return,” explains Greg.
“It was a night that I will never forget, and that he chose such a meaningful place confirmed even more that I found the love of my life,” gushes Rebecca.
When it came to planning the wedding, Greg deferred to Rebecca, who happened to be a wedding designer at White Wedding Day Events. “Being that Rebecca had been planning her wedding since she was little, I knew I was just along for the ride,” laughs Greg. Rebecca and her best friend, wedding designer Bradley Dean Snyder, went to town, creating her childhood dream wedding.
