Destination: LOVE

We're so happy you stopped by our little corner of the web to hear about our beautiful bride Abbie Fronk.  

Abbie and Kevin met while attending school in Hawaii.  They were both on soccer teams, and had a class together.  Kevin asked Abbie out and their first date was a scavenger hunt.  They had to complete tasks that were worth different points based on "difficulty".  Things like eating a spoon full of cinnamon, getting a stranger to dance with you, and other indiscretions involving your dates nose!  These two are a riot!  Active, happy and always having fun!   

Apparently Abbie had too much fun, as she ended up banned from a certain grocery store.   Meanwhile, Kevin ended up getting off scott free!

The fact that Abbie had been banned from the store didn't seem to have a negative effect on how Kevin felt about her, because a few dates later they were kissing underneath the stars on a pristine beach in Hawaii.  Abbie and Kevin continued dating, till one evening he took her to a beach to see giant sea turtles, but upon arrival, there were absolutely no turtles to be seen.  Right Kevin! "Turtles" So his next idea was to stargaze, and while they were both standing there, Abbie decided that Kevin had already wasted enough valuable time!  Abbie kissed Kevin; her best first kiss ever!

Kevin's proposal was an all day event! While in Huntington Beach California, Kevin started out by surprising her with a picnic and roses under a quaint gazebo.  After the picnic they went horseback riding for a few hours, followed  by a gondola tour of the Newport Harbor at sunset.  While on the tour the guide conveniently found a bottle with a message in it.  Can you guess what it said?
"Abbie will you marry me?
Love, Kevin."

Abbie was still living in Hawaii and felt limited in her choices there.  She knew she wanted a dress with a fitted bolero jacket, and knew she loved the wedding gown designer, Maggie Sottero.  That's when she called us!  She explained to us her situation, and that she needed to do everything long distance.  "They were able to get my dress that fit perfectly the first time I tried it on, and custom create a jacket that looked perfect without me ever stepping foot into the store!  I could not have been happier and everyone was so impressed with how perfect it all turned out.  It was amazing."

Abbie and Kevin were married December 29, 2011 in the Laie, Hawaii L.D.S. Temple.

Abbie's dress was simple and elegant, and set the tone for the rest of her wedding.  Her reception was held under a white tent on the beach of Turtle Bay Resort.

"Kevin absolutely loved my dress.  He still tells me how beautiful I looked and how perfect the dress was."

Abbie's Advice:  "I would tell brides to find a dress you can't stop thinking about.  When I found my dress I think I looked at it everyday online until it was sent to me. Be open and willing to try new ideas and styles, and lastly, find the one that you're in love with, no one else's opinions matter, you're the one who is going to feel special in it that day!"

Congratulations Kevin and Abbie! Keep having fun!
