Julie Meyer and Robert "Max" Lavie first spotted one another on the popular dating app Tinder and, once they both swiped right and conducted a full background check that included vetting one another through mutual friends, the two went on their first date. "And we've been inseparable since," says Julie. But despite their close bond, Max was able to throw Julie off his scent when he was ready to propose. "He put a lot of effort into making me think an engagement was a very long way off," the marketing director bride says. How much effort? The pilot secretly sneaked off from their Dallas home and flew to Kanas City to ask Julie's father for permission to pop the question, never once revealing his flight plans. So when he dropped to one knee days later, "I was shocked to say the least," Julie says. "But it was the happiest surprise of my life."

"Where to get married was a no-brainer," Julie admits. The couple looked to Palm Springs, California, for their May 9, 2015 nuptials since it was the city where they first vacationed together and where Max proclaimed his love. Julie and Max ultimately booked Toscana Country Club, in nearby Indian Wells, which boasted mountain views and manicured lawns, and lent the ideal setting for the couple's romantic blush- and gold-hued party, photographed to perfection by Sara & Rocky Photography.

While the couple didn't have a theme for the wedding, Julie says, they did use a monogram that has been passed down through the family — a swirling M and L — throughout their event, including on their ivory, gold and pink invitation suite. "We carried it through our welcome bags, napkins, party cups, paper fans, and even the dance floor," Julie says. "I think we pretty much monogrammed everything we could."
