Wedding date: June 15, 2013


When did you first meet: College 2 1/2 years ago

Where did you first meet: His Fraternity

When did you know you were going to marry him: after we moved in together

How did he propose: Took me to Nagshead, NC and we went to a romantic dinner and walked out to the gazebo at our resort to look at the stars and when I turned around he was down on one knee.

Favorite thing to do together: Watching our shows every week and watching movies.


Wedding colors: Aquamarine and black

Number of guests: 160

Number in wedding party: 10

Wedding Style: whimsical or how I told my florist and everyone else I wanted it to be as if Katy Perry and Tim Burton had a baby.

Beauty style: Side pony tail and curls

Dress style: Sweetheart strapless. Alfred Angelo Disney collection Princess Jasmine.

Most unique wedding personalization: Butterfly release and T-Bird getaway car in honor of my parents. Also, had my St.Bernard and Lhasa Apso dogs walk down the aisle.

Something you did very different: Love and Wine box instead of unity candle. This box contains 2 wine glasses and our favorite wine and 2 letters that we wrote to each other about why we fell in love neither of us get to read them until our 1 year anniversary.

Something you did very traditional: Didn’t see each other before the ceremony.

Something you would do all over again: I wouldn’t change a thing. Even though it almost rained.

Something you would never do again: Have an outside wedding. The stress of thinking about the weather is awful.

Most memorable wedding moment: Seeing my now Husband start to cry when our song started to play and I stepped out of the Hummer.

Best wedding decision: Getting a wedding planner!

Best wedding overall advice: Get a Wedding Planner, Lori Solomon made everything happen how I wanted it and made sure I was completely happy and as stress free as I could be.
