2 6 Fa l l | Wi n t e r B R I D E 2 0 1 5 Sarah Camfeld & Omar Ventura A Working Proposal April 12, 2015 The Wedding of Sarah and Omar had been working together at Mussel & Burger Bar for a few months when Sarah decided to ask him out. "I told him, 'We're going out tonight. I'm going to come get you, and we're going to go to a bar.'" The romance blossomed from there and they moved in together. The proposal story also involves work. "I was supposed to go home frst, and he was like, 'You have to stay tonight.' So I was super pissed," says Sarah. "I fnally got out of there and I'm in my work clothes and I call him and I'm yelling at him on the phone. Then I pull up to our house and walk in the front door and he has our friend playing John Legend's "All of Me" on the guitar and singing it and a few of our other friends there videotaping. He comes around the corner with a ring and he does his little speech and I say yes. Then I'm like, 'OK, turn of the cameras — I look horrible.'" Sarah wanted her wedding to be fun and stress-free. She decided to do a small ceremony, performed by a former co-worker, with about 50 guests at her mom's house in Jefersontown. Omar was born in Mexico, so they included a Mexican tradition in which the mothers of the bride and groom put a lasso around the couple and say a prayer. Afterward, everyone went to dinner and a reception at Cena, which shares a building with Mussel & Burger Bar. It turns out Sarah had the dress and fowers planned for years. "I stumbled across this notepad from when I was, like, 11, and it was the one time in my whole life that I had planned a wedding for myself. I wrote down that I wanted my colors to be lavender and white (the color of the fowers in her bouquet). I had drawn a picture of a dress and I ended up picking a dress that looked like that." Sarah's advice for brides-to-be: • Photography might cause some initial sticker shock, but it's worth the expense. "(The photographer) took some pictures that make it look like we're in some forest wonderland," she says, "but we're just in front of our neighbor's fr tree." • "Try not to stress too much. Nothing is ever going to be perfect, especially if all of your focus is going into trying to make it perfect. Set the groundwork and let the day just happen."
