Back in 2009, Kari Froehlich and Charlie Escobar both decided to go to the same houseboat party on Lake Powell at the last minute. Neither went with hopes of meeting someone, but both lucked out and hit it off. On the drive back to Phoenix with her friends, Kari was asked if they’d continue to see each other, at which point she smiled and thought that she’d never been more sure of anything in her life. They’ve talked to or have seen each other every day since, and after three-and-a-half years together decided to tie the knot.
Initially, a big wedding was in the cards for this duo, but then plans shifted to a more intimate affair. Venues kept falling through, but when Kari’s mom told that to a friend, everything aligned when the friend offered her home as the location. The only kicker? Time constraints meant the I Dos had to be exchanged within the next four weeks. And so, on May 4, 2013, Kari and Charlie got hitched, just one month after picking the perfect spot to start the rest of their lives together.
