Real Wedding: Stacia & Dustyn

On a day filled with laughter and happy tears, Stacia and Dustyn infuse glamorous and whimsical details into a summer scene staged beneath an aspen canopy.

A year and a half after meeting Stacia on Match.com, Dustyn surprised her with an engagement ring when she least expected it: on Valentine’s day. “I hinted to my girlfriends that I did not want to be proposed to on Valentine’s Day,” Stacia laughs, “but Dustyn somehow heard that I did not want to be proposed to on Valentine’s.” Nonetheless, Dustyn took advantage of February’s unusually warm weather to lead Stacia on a sunset hike to Ensign Peak where he proposed.

“I turn around to find him on one knee and I asked, ‘What are you doing?’ He said he had a ring and I said, ‘No. Get up, people are staring at us.'” Stacia, of course, said yes and now the couple has a funny engagement story to tell.

With the help of Fuse Weddings & Events, the Utah couple (who live in Herriman) hosted a summertime wedding at Deer Valley Resort’s Empire Canyon Lodge. A highlight of the ceremony was Stacia’s daughter Sami. “I put together vows to say to Sami and we had a birthstone ring made for her by my jeweler,” Stacia says. “It was so special. We wanted to make sure she didn’t feel like her dad was leaving her and that she knew she was an important part of this new family [with Dustyn].” The sweet family moment brought a few guests to tears.
