Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?
He was the boy across the street, we never talked. At 13/14yrs old we had each other’s socials somehow, but never met. Then around 16yrs old we met by accident, with mutual friends, became super great friends for a year and a half or so, then he asked me to be his girlfriend, we dated for 2.5 years and he asked me to marry him!
How did he put a ring on it?
He took me on a roadtrip under the impression that our friends were getting engaged, turns out it was us!
Where did you draw inspiration from?
I never had any wedding inspo..it all kind of came together as I was planning!
What made the wedding personal to you?
It was with someone I knew for a great amount of time, I knew he was the one. All of our family and friends were a part of it and it was amazing to have them there.
What were you most nervous or excited about?
Tripping Down the aisle, LOL
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress?
The Rydelle gown by Tara Lauren. I had a photo of the dress saved from 2021 in my instagram just because it was so pretty. I never thought It was my future dress. So I remembered about it and looked it up online and realized this dress designer was originally based in different locations. Somehow around the time I was getting engaged, this dress magically was getting shown at a trunk show in my town, I signed up for it, and went to the appointment. It was the first dress I tried on and the one I fell in love with!
What stockist did you get it from?
Grace and White Bridal in Sacramento, CA.
What was your most memorable moment from your day?
When my husband began crying while I was walking down the aisle, it was so sweet!
