Aaron planned to propose in a hot air balloon, but after the flight was cancelled for bad weather, he ended up proposing in the back of the shuttle instead. After a second cancellation, Diana and Aaron eventually took flight on their third attempt and Aaron proposed again before changing winds forced a rapid descent. To slow down, the pilot brushed the balloon against a large eucalyptus tree then gave Diana and Aaron last-second instructions to brace themselves. They bounced to an abrupt, hard-landing and although bruised and laughing, it became an adventure to remember.
Celebrating their marriage on the first day of fall inspired a harvest moon theme, perfected by maple leaves and an autumn color-palette woven throughout their decadent decor.
