Samantha Nguyen, 28, and David Ye, 28, hit it off after being introduced by a mutual friend. A year later at Coachella, after a plan to propose on the Ferris wheel was foiled by sleeping in, David asked Samantha to marry him during her favorite DJ’s set. (Two years later, he reproposed on that Ferris wheel to make up for the missed opportunity. The couple celebrated their wedding with 160 guests at The Lafayette Hotel in North Park.
Right Match “We were having a rough time trying to find a place that fit our style and budget, but then I noticed The Lafayette Hotel on a drive home and looked it up – it was the perfect space for us,” Samantha recalls
True Colors “The color scheme came easy as my favorite color is blue and my wardrobe is mainly blue, white, and gray. Yellow was added to help bring in pops of color.” says Samantha.
