Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?
Kevin and I met in 2014 when I visited my friend at her house. I didn’t expect anyone else to be there, so I was very surprised when I saw Kevin sitting on her sofa! Kevin was there to meet her boyfriend and we hardly talked to each other that evening, but I liked his calm charisma. Shortly afterwards, we wrote to each other on Facebook and before too long, we fell in love.
How did he put a ring on it?
In August 2020, we went on vacation in the German and Austrian Alps. It was our first vacation with our dog, Gringo, and on the third day we hiked to Neuschwanstein Castle. When we got to the top, Kevin asked if we could take a picture with a self-timer but instead of taking the picture, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! That moment was so special because I didn’t expect it at all!
Where did you draw inspiration from?
I found most of the inspiration for our wedding on Instagram and Pinterest. I always had the vision in my mind of having a classic wedding that celebrated the simplicity of small details and ivory tones, and our vendors helped bring that image to life.
What made the wedding personal to you?
Our wedding truly embodied the way Kevin and I live, and love each other. From the wedding to the reception party, the day was as carefree and laid-back as we are! We could relax and truly enjoy every moment of the day celebrating our wonderful love. Also, our dog, Gringo brought us the rings, which was incredibly special for both of us.
What were you most nervous or excited about?
I was both nervous and excited about seeing each other for the first time as I walked down the aisle! I knew it was going to be so special, and it was a very beautiful kind of anticipation that I had never felt before.
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress?
I was in love with the simple elegance of GILES from the moment I saw her. No matter which wedding dress I tried on afterwards, I always kept coming back to GILES. I had never felt that beautiful before.
What stockist did you get it from?
What was your most memorable moment from your day?
The most memorable part of the day was walking down the aisle towards Kevin. The way he looked at me and hugged me was unforgettable. I felt loved unconditionally, and it was also wonderful to see how happy our family and friends were for us!
