Haley and Brian Golston

By  0 Comments

Haley (Almanza) Golston, 23, graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, in May 2018 with a degree in human development and family studies. She’s currently in graduate school at UNR pursuing a master’s degree in counseling and educational psychology with a focus in school counseling and marriage and family therapy. 

Brian Golston, 23, graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in business management. He works for Cintas, where he interned during college. Haley and Brian live in Sparks, Nevada, with their goldendoodle puppy, Lady.

Haley and Brian attended Delta College in Stockton and met in December 2013 at a party. “I was waiting for my friends to leave and ‘Stand by Me’ by Ben E. King started playing,” Haley recalls. “Brian walked up to me and asked me to dance! We started dating about a week after and have been together ever since!”

Brian chose Haley’s favorite place for his proposal. It also happens to be the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. “We were there with our families and I even mentioned to Brian our first day that I wanted him to propose soon,” she laughs. “I told him that if he did it at Disneyland, he should choose the morning because I looked like a mess by the afternoon. He shot that thought down fast! Little did I know that the next morning, I was walking into one of the happiest moments of my life. We all were gathered to take a group picture in front of the castle at about 8:30 a.m. and I couldn’t find Brian. Shortly after, everyone backed away and Brian came out from the castle in a prince costume, walked up to me and got down on one knee. It was such an amazing moment with both of our families present!”

The blissful couple tied the knot September 8th, 2018, in an outdoor ceremony. Haley’s Maid of Honor was Brooke Clever; bridesmaids were Hollee Yerian, Gianna Morelli, Christina Spiers, Samantha Golston, Lindsey Bryden and Shelby Golston. Brian’s Best Man was Nicholas Mikovich; groomsmen were Christian Almanza, Madison Riddell, Michael Mikovich, Kyle Gaskin, Jarrett Bryden and Adam Lapidus.

“Our wonderful ceremony made our wedding special,” Haley describes. “We had such an incredible pastor, Dan Lambdin, marry us, and his ceremony was light, fun and intimate. I was told that there was not a dry eye in the house during our vows. It was so special to us to be able to share our funny and loving vows with our loved ones present. Our premarital counseling sessions with Dan and his wife, Beth, truly helped our marriage start on a solid, steady foundation; we strongly believe that they played a huge role in making our wedding day special.”

Since Haley is in graduate school, they postponed their honeymoon and will depart for Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on New Year’s Day, 2019.
