While Michele was checking to see if there was a full moon on their wedding night, she found out that on that date, on May 20, 2012, there was going to be an Annular Solar Eclipse. We moved the ceremony back a half an hour, since the height of the eclipse would be in the middle of the ceremony.
We weren’t sure what to expect, what is going to happen with the light during this unique event, but we were ready!
We didn’t notice much from the Eclipse, just the light, the sky was a little more interesting, more vivid around Lake Las Vegas. ☺ They will always remember for sure, that they got married on the day of the Annular Solar Eclipse!
How did they meet?….
Johnny first met Michele back in 2007. She was a friend of his sister Heidi. Johnny moved away for a while and moved back to Vegas. Soon they ended up getting together by taking a trip to Venice Beach California. They connected right away…
How did he proposed?…
He proposed on the gondola at Lake Las Vegas in Feb 2011. He told her it was a Valentines Day surprise so she wouldn’t get suspicious. The proposal was in a note in a wine bottle floating in the lake. (the gondola company helped Johnny with this) and she plucked it out of the water and opened the note in the bottle. She was beyond surprised!!
What they love to do together?
They love to watch movies together, try new restaurants and travel together.
Why did they pick Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort to get married?
They picked Lake Las Vegas to tie the knot, because they got engaged there, and because of the beautiful scenery.
Their ceremony was at Lotus Court and their reception at the Rick’s Café at the Westin Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort.
