Tell Us Your Love Story

How did you meet?

We are high school sweet hearts! He approached me in high school during lunch and I was not interested at all, haha. He later messaged me online, we hung out and have been inseparable since!

How did he put a ring on it?

He had plans for us to go up to the Sequoia National Forest and he did it there. We had a beautiful scenery, I can’t ever forget!

Where did you draw inspiration from?

I’m a wedding photographer so I get to see a lot of everything! Mostly drawing inspiration from Instagram and working with a bunch of different vendors. I knew exactly what I wanted and just wanted it to feel spring romantic vibes.

What made the wedding personal to you?

We were actually already married and never had a wedding due to at the time my husband was in the military! So planning our dream wedding together was so special to us and to finally have all of our family come together.

What were you most nervous or excited about?

Two months prior to our wedding date we had to completely move our wedding venue locations. That was the most nervous thing for us, but I’m so glad on how everything turned out and wouldn’t have had it any other way! Everything was perfect! Alex was mostly excited to see me for the first time.

Now, the most important part – the Dress!

Tell us about your dress? 

I didn’t really know what I wanted going into looking for a wedding dress until I saw the KISMET gown. I instantly fell in love. When I had my first Bridal appointment it was the only dress I wanted to try on and didn’t wanna take it off, it was the only dress I went in for. The slit and embroidery are my favorite!

What stockist did you get it from?

Ivory Bridal Boutique, Clovis, CA
