March has come to be one of our busiest wedding months, and we couldn't be more excited to share another Lighthouse couple with you all! Bambi and Chad booked with us back in October, and it was like we blinked and their big day was here! Tomorrow, these best friends become one, and today, we share their sweet love story, as told by Bambi!

How did you and Chad Meet?

(By Bambi)

Chad & I met when he was supporting himself through art school as a school bus driver & I was a teacher at one of the schools on his route. We would make casual small talk until one day I gave him my business card with my personal number written on it & told him, "you should call me." The rest is history. 

What's the proposal story? 

On one of our regular Thursday night dates, Chad told me to meet him in Walnut Creek at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. This was quite a bit fancier than our normal pizza dates. We met on the roof of a nearby parking garage and walked to the restaurant. I was suspicious but each course came & nothing happened. I thought maybe he was going to propose at dessert, but the plate came with no hoopla. So, when we walked back to our cars on the rooftop I thought nothing of it when he told me to look over the edge at the sidewalk. When I turned back to him, he was on bended knee & asked me to marry him. I began to cry but said yes.

What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day? 

Chad & I were determined to plan our wedding using local & small businesses. We value the community & want to give our money back where it it is needed, rather than book our wedding with a hotel chain or winery. A quick search for local venues in Vallejo provided this beautiful location. 

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? 

Marrying my best friend. & maybe the first dance as husband & wife because I love our song!

We are so happy that Bambi & Chad decided to host their special day at our gorgeous venue! Here's to a lifetime of happiness!
