Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?
I honestly never thought that I would find my husband on Tinder, but I did! Patrick and I decided to meet after talking for about two weeks and the rest is history. A real Tinder success story!
How did he put a ring on it?
We had a family trip to Big Bear in December 2020 and one morning, Patrick and I went into the town to get coffee. After coffee, we returned to our beautiful cabin and I opened the front door to find both of our families and white rose petals leading the way to a beautiful setup on the deck overlooking the beautiful snowy mountains, and that’s when he asked me to marry him. It was beyond magical!
Where did you draw inspiration from?
Patrick comes from a water loving family. Whether it’s swimming, diving or fishing, they all love the water! So we knew Kauai in Hawaii was the perfect spot to get married and honeymoon. Patrick and I had actually never vacationed together due to COVID getting in the way so this was perfect.
What made the wedding personal to you?
The island of Kauai was actually the last place where Patrick and his mom visited before she passed away so that made the island an incredibly special place to honor her, and have her with us. Having our families with us on the island for our wedding was also very special as we didn’t think it would be possible to have our loved ones there due to the pandemic.
What were you most nervous or excited about?
I was nervous about someone coming down with the virus! Thankfully that was not the case for any of our guests.
We were super excited about the whole thing, the wedding and honeymoon with our families in paradise – not to mention the picture perfect sunsets!
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress?
I wanted my wedding dress to be flowy, fun, and magical. The GIULETTA gown by Tara Lauren was the perfect fit!
What stockist did you get it from?
Mary Me Bridal, CA
What was your most memorable moment from your day?
Seeing Patrick waiting for me at the end of the aisle was THE moment.
