Tell Us Your Love Story

How did you meet?

We were best friends for years through college and basically inseparable. I never thought of Chase romantically, but he had been secretly crushing for years. While I went away on a 3 month study trip to Italy, we Facetimed almost every day. He told his mom after hanging up one time that we’d get married one day. When I got back, I went as his date to a party, he pulled me aside after we danced and told me that he loved me! The rest is history

 

How Did He Put A Ring On It?

Proposed with a redesigned family ring in a beautiful white gazebo with orange autumn leaves all over the ground!

Where did you draw inspiration from?

I was torn between three aesthetics – Tuscan, coastal, and garden party, so I just combined them all!

What made the wedding personal to you?

Every detail was meticulously planned. It was so much hard work but every last minute was perfect.

What were you most nervous or excited about?

Our first look and private vows! Chase broke down immediately and it’s one of my favorite photos from the wedding. He said when he turned around I looked like “pure love.”

Now, the most important part – the Dress!

Tell us about your dress? 

I have the Kismet in Ivory! It was the first wedding dress I tried on. I loved it, but I thought I was just overwhelmed by trying on wedding dresses for the first time. I went to FIVE dress appointments, then went back and tried it on again and immediately knew. I had the full tears, this is my dress, moment.

What stockist did you get it from?

Lovely Bride Atlanta!

What was your most memorable moment from your day?

Definitely our private vows! It was so special.
