What was the most important thing for you about finding the perfect dress?

The most important thing for me was having a dress that made me feel like a bride, while having a great time picking one out. Finding a dress that fit me was important too because I am very short. The experience of picking out my wedding dress was amazing! The first dress store I went to, was not very welcoming to me, so when I came to Always Elegant Bridal, I was so thrilled to have such a kind and amazing team helping me pick out my dream dress.

What was the best personal moments of your wedding day?

Best moments was getting Dutch Bros after the ceremony, before going to our reception. It was a time to reflect on the fact WE JUST GOT MARRIED! It was also amazing to see my family and friends help us so much when we had to change the location of our wedding due to the pandemic. There were so many smiles and laughs and many, many good times.

Please share something that stood out on your wedding day?

Our original plan was to get married on the beach, but due to covid-19, we decided to keep the wedding local. Everyone came together to help us make the day amazing. We were blown away by the love from everyone.

What was your inspiration for your wedding day and dress?

Inspiration came from a lot of places, mainly the ocean. I chose colors that reflected the ocean to me and we wanted a bit more of a hippie feel for everything, less traditional.

Any advice to future brides?

Go with the flow. Things come up and instead of focusing on what couldn’t happen, focus on the person you will be sharing your life with. The wedding will only be as happy as you are during it.

The talent behind this beautiful day…
