Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
“A lot of couples have a song,” says Trevor Arnett. “We have a place.” That place is Marco Island in Florida, the site of Laura and Trevor Arnett’s first vacation and the spot Trevor chose to pop the question.
“Traveling with Laura is always special, but this place hold such a special place in both our hearts. I knew this was the location [to propose],” he says. On the last night of a summer vacation there in 2017, “there was a beautiful sunset, and I took advantage of nature’s gift to us.”
When the big day arrived 10 months later, Laura was hard-pressed to find a moment that wouldn’t be memorable for her. “My favorite moment was our ceremony,” she says. “It was a dream come true, even though we forgot the rings and did not realize it until we were at the altar.” Fortunately, the rest of the wedding went off without a hitch.
