Their Love Story…
Brendon and I both grew up in Paradise, but didn’t meet until our sophomore year of high school. We started dating in April of that year and never imagined where our relationship would go or how we would grow up individually and together as a couple. Our friendship transitioned naturally into a relationship as we entered adulthood together. Life hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but we have found comfort in each other. Brendon proposed on our tenth anniversary at the Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge on the way to a San Francisco Giants game. It was a perfect day!
What was the most important thing for you about finding the perfect dress?
I wanted something that was both unique and beautiful, but still fit with my personal style. When I saw the Galatea Willowby by Watters gown I knew I had to try it on, and once I did there was nothing that was ever going to compare.
What was the best personal moments of your wedding day?
Following our ceremony Brendon and I were able to take a couple minutes to ourselves and share in this special moment. When then were able to relax in enjoy each other while taking photos.
Please share something that stood out on your wedding day?
Joy and happiness, you could feel it in every aspect of the day. Being surrounded my your loved ones celebrating the most important moment in your life is incredible.
What was your inspiration for your wedding day and dress?
When we got engaged I spent a lot of time on Pinterest looking at different color schemes and themes. We ended up going with a sort of rustic bohemian design and our venue did an amazing job pulling the whole thing together.
Any advice to future brides?
Don’t stress over the small stuff. I know that sounds cliché, but people won’t know if things aren’t perfect, they won’t remember if anything is out of place, they will remember you and your partner and what a magical day it was.
