The story of Ciarra & Michael
The Engagement: Where it all started
In August of 2019, Ciarra and Michael took a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to celebrate their Two year Anniversary. The couple was excited to relax by the beach and enjoy some time in the sun. Prior to the trip, Ciarra explained that she had no idea what Micheals’s intentions were and was completely shocked in the moment of their engagement. After getting situated and ready to enjoy everything that vacation had to offer, Michael asked Ciarra to take a walk on the beach. He had arranged a very romantic proposal on the shoreline and made sure to include chilled champaign. The evening became even more special when Michael had included one of Ciarra’s best friends on the vacation. After that night, they knew they couldn’t live without each other.

The Bishop was able to match both Ciarra and Michaels’s “Wedding day look” by setting a very romantic tone through the decorations and theme of the ceremony. They decided on their Wedding colors by incorporating some simplicity and having a “clean look”- grays, silvers, and ivories with a hint of blush. Some factors that made their wedding more special were some big & little touches to make the overall experience more unique. The couple arranged an informal “mix and mingle” at the Hotels rooftop bar for Friday night.

These events were perfect because everyone all got to interact and get to know each other. In just six months, The couple was able to pull off a stunning wedding after the craziness of Covid-19 and were fortunate to have it be in one of their favorite destinations!
Helpful Tips/Advice for Future Brides & Engaged Couples
Ciarra emphasizes the importance of “Enjoying every minute of the planning process, even the annoying parts!”. The Wedding day itself goes so fast and you should take it all in. “The most important lesson I can give any bride is to give the person you trust most and truly knows you the best, your vision and important details you want for your wedding and let them “take over”. Stay out of as much of the last-minute details as you can so you can truly enjoy every single moment.”
- The whole experience is so special and every detail counts!
- Staying positive and trusting the process is also a great piece of advice for any engaged couple
- Deciding what YOU want.
