Cris and Bud first met when Cris would constantly come over her blockmate's house to finish their group projects. Her blockmate was Bud's cousin, and Cris and Bud would run into each other because Bud also lived next door.
It wasn't until six years later that romance blossomed between Cris and Bud. The two shared a strong bond, and two years into the relationship, Bud felt that it was time to take their relationship to the next level.
Bud took Cris to the peak of Orford Castle in Suffolk, England. Bud's sister pretended to take photos, but she really was capturing the couple in a video. The rest of Bud's relatives hid in different spots in the area. As the castle's closing time neared, Bud mustered the courage to get down on one knee and pop the question. Taken by surprise, Cris finally realized what was happening, and she started protesting. However, she finally got over the shock, and said yes to Bud.
For their wedding, Cris and Bud opted for a regal theme, which they dubbed as English Royalty. A red and blue motif complemented their chosen concept.
While the couple's celebration was a formal one, Cris and Bud still allowed their affair to exude warmth. The bride took on several DIY projects in order to inject her and the groom's personalities into the details. Among the specially crafted details were the emblem, the invitations, the napkin holders, the place cards, and the banners. The bride's friends also helped her carry out the projects.
Cris and Bud were hands-on with planning their wedding, but they turned the reins over to their coordinator when their big day came. Shares Cris, "Get a really good wedding coordinator. If you can afford the established ones, better. Spend extra, as long as they are really efficient and professional." By doing just that, the couple was able to enjoy the fruits of their labor on their wedding day.
