David and Yuri met and began their love story in 2019. David lived in Ruston, Louisiana, and Yuri lived in Tenaha, Texas. The couple met in Shreveport, Lousiana, to make things easier and claimed that city as their “dating spot.” They always found fun things to do in the city. After two years of dating, David proposed to Yuri during a family trip to Sapphire Point Overview in Dillion, Colorado. After the proposal, their creative adventure began as their goal was to add special touches with their own time and talents to the upcoming wedding.
David and Yuri wanted their family and friends to have a good time at their wedding and to carry home a treasure they had created. They chose a natural bohemian style wedding and handmade all the details. David, alongside his recently deceased father, made the arbor out of an oak beam. Knowing it had been made by David and his father made this an extremely special part of their wedding day. He also made the aisle signs, unity cross, and coasters with each of the guests’ names. Yuri made all the centerpieces, floral decorations, favors, boutonnieres, and bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids. Their families helped bring all this together for their wedding day.
As David and Yuri were looking for a natural setting for the wedding, their first wedding venue tour landed them at Garrison Gardens. They instantly loved the beautiful setting, accommodations, and natural surroundings. They knew this would be a place for their families and friends to meet and celebrate their wedding day. “We are so thankful to Karen and Chuck Gilbert for their help and collaboration; they made the most important day of our lives go as planned and dreamed,” Yuri says.
