S: THE JEN AND WALL ENGAGEMENT YEAR
FC: An Engagement Year | T T | &
1: Before the Big Day for... | Tiffany Jen | Tanner Wall | A gift from the Bridal Party.
2: Tanner and Tiffany met in college as neighbors. Tanner knew Tiffany was the one, but before he could pop the question, there were some things that needed to happen first. This included Tiffany graduating from U of A. Tiffany's graduation was in the winter of 2010. Although she wanted a new watch for her graduation gift, she speculated that Tanner might be getting her a ring. | It all started with a proposal.
3: After Tiffany's graduation, the families met for the first time and celebrated. It became obvious very quickly that the two families are a great match!
4: Tanner still had to wait patiently for a few more things to happen before bending down on one knee. | He wanted to wait for Taite and Alex's wedding. to keep all eyes on their engagement. | He of course wanted to take Tiffany ring shopping, and he wanted to meet more of her family. Luckily, Tanner got to know her cousins better on their Vegas cousins trip!
5: After months of anticipation, Tanner did the last thing on his list: ask Mr. Jen for his blessing. With a little help from Vivian, Tanner was able to see Mr. Jen without Tiffany knowing. Actually, she might have been a little suspicious when Tanner's flight number and time didn't match...but let's just say she had no idea...Then in late August, it officially happened!
6: Soon after the engagement, Tiffany had a family trip and had to part from Tanner. Luckily, their long distance relationship would finally come to an end because Tanner landed a great job in California! | As soon as she got back, the planning started. An open pinaholic was in the making. She was lucky enough to find her venue incredibly quickly. | Time flew fast, and fall was officially in motion. They made trips back and forth between AZ and CA to see friends and family. Lucky for the both of them, they enjoy their road trips together. | T&T
7: The holidays finally arrived. | They were able to see both their families for a jam packed week!
8: Tiffany chose her bridesmaids, and she made them adorable gifts. Two of her bridesmaids were able to help her on her first dress hunt. The first weekend of December, Angela and Tracy camped out with Tiffany in her car for the Monique Lhuillier sample sale.. Although she didn't find a dress to buy, the girls had a blast staying up a ll night and chatting about high school, celebrity gossip, and future weddings. | Vivian took Tiffany shopping again when there was less pressure. She was able to find something she loved - and that was in her budget - but here are some of the ones she tried but didn't make the cut. | Say "Yes" to the dress.
10: The start of the new year meant that their wedding was approaching soon. Since, they had already taken care of the big items, they took advantage of weekend getaways when given the opportunity.
11: The took trips to Mammoth and wine tasting. They also went on dates whenever they could to forget about wedding planning for a night. One big trip for Tiffany in February was going to NOLA for Mardi Gras. For Tiffany's late birthday gift, Tracy got dinner and balcony tickets on Bourbon Street. They called it Tiffany's pre-bachelorette party.
12: Earlier that month on Tiffany's birthday, their photographer -Jerome Park - gave Tiffany an awesome birthday present: a fun day of engagement shooting. Their first stop? Los Angeles Union Station.
14: Later, they went to take casual engagement pictures that reflected their lay back style at a nearby park.
