The Couple: Monica Alcala and Nicholas Kreig
Wedding Date: October 9, 2010
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met at work in June of 2004, where we had a mutual friend who would jokingly suggested that we should go out with each other. Shortly afterward, we became friends and have been together ever since.
In December 2004, Nick surprised me with a trip to Lake Tahoe where he proposed to me on the beach. I found my best friend and life partner, the person who loves me for me. Fast forward six years later and we are married! He’s my friend, my soul mate, the person who completely understands me and loves me for me, and I love him.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Sharing this special memory with our family and friends.
What else would you like to share about your big day? The vendors we selected were great to work with and their services were above and beyond what we expected: delicious food, great music, beautiful floral arrangements and amazing pictures.

Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out? A very special thanks to Liz and her staff at De La Rosa’s Bridal and Tuxedo who went above and beyond what I expected.. Liz and her entire staff were very friendly and very helpful.
Mike at the Croatian American Cultural Center for being very detailed orientated at the small details and making our wedding very special.
Katie Edwards at Ambience Floral Design for her beautiful arrangements and for being flexible when we had last minute changes.
Mike Anderson from Creative Memories Entertainment made our choices much easier and even was kind enough to bring the football for the garter toss, we owe you.
Mike Shelton for a delicious wedding cake.
Also, another special thanks to Paulette from Forget Me Nevers. She does beautiful custom floral preservation. I have received so many compliments from friends and family telling me that my bouquet looks just as beautiful as the day I carried it.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Be patient, be organized and be open minded. And, start as soon as possible selecting your vendors and paying off purchases. (So it’s not so overwhelming with one huge bill in the end).
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Being on time and prepared (ladies make sure to have your stuff together and ready to go). I forgot so many little things but was able to pull it off with the help of the great vendors, family and friends.
