As you explore your wedding-planning options, consider infusing your celebration with décor influenced by the beauty of the great outdoors. Rest assured, just because an event draws from mother nature doesn't mean elegance, style, or luxury need be sacrificed.

We're excited to share their answers with you. These guys will melt your hearts and make you believe in true love all over again! "In February 2009, I realized I was ready to propose to Natalie. Every year, I would travel with my college buddies to whatever city was hosting the NBA All-Star Weekend. In 2009, the host city was Phoenix, but the weekend happened to fall on Valentine’s Day.
