Describe your experience of saying ΓÇ£yes to the dress!
"I had looked online at all these gorgeous models in dresses and loved them all! I also saw all the hippie/boho more casual dress options and also loved those! With this being said I had NO clue what I wanted (or what would look good). I shopped online, and nothing fit right or was just unflattering."
"Finally, I booked a flight home (Michigan) to shop with my mom and my aunts in actual bridal stores. We spent a whole day at multiple boutiques and even DavidΓÇÖs Bridal (YUCK). The last place we stopped was GinaΓÇÖs Bridal Boutique in Milford, MI. I tried on some incredible dresses and thought I had found the one! It was more of a glittery ballroom A-line with a strapless sweetheart neckline. It was incredibleΓÇª but I didnΓÇÖt get THAT FEELING."
"To make sure I knew this was THE dress, I asked to try on a different dress (just to make sure, right?!) that was on the mannequin right by my fitting room. It was flowy and boho, but it had a timeless look to it. From the mannequin view, everyone was a bit skeptical and wasnΓÇÖt convinced it would be better than the one we had all voted on, up to this point."
"Lo and beholdΓÇª the second my assistant zipped me up and had me turn around in the dressing room, I KNEW it was the one. My family would tell you that I came out from the curtains with a glow on my face and was radiating BRIDE-ness all over the place! It was a little over budget, but it was definitely worth it. The piece is so timeless and I hope that my future children and grandchildren get to wear it! When you know you know!"

"Timmy and I like to think we have a pretty cool story. We met on Tinder while I was living in Denver and he was living up in the mountains (80 miles apart). He messaged me after we matched and asked if I went to Fraser High School (in Michigan), which I did! Creep right? Haha. After discussing some mutual friends, we discovered that I had his dad as a marketing teacher in high school and we agreed to go on our first date. The rest is history."
"Now we are just a couple Michiganders living in the Colorado Rockies and rescuing as many dogs as we can afford to feed at once! We love to hike, and ski and camp."
"We spent 2 weeks total in our tent last summer. We had a ΓÇÿgo-toΓÇÖ spot for camping, away from the crowds and the highways. It became our little oasis! Timmy left for work (yes from camp) that morning, I had a normal day at camp just hanging out with our dogs, drinking some wine, reading a book, and we had a friend come up to camp with us for the night. Timmy returned from work with a ring, dropped to one knee and asked if I would make him the happiest man, and marry him! His friend was there to take photos and to help us celebrate!"
WhatΓÇÖs your favorite thing about your husband?
"He always reminds me that life doesnΓÇÖt have to be so serious. He is SO funny. We just play like kids together!"
WhatΓÇÖs your favorite moment from your wedding?
"Our first touch. We stood on opposite sides of a wall and held each otherΓÇÖs hand (might have been a butt grab or two). It was a moment I looked forward to all day, just touching him and hearing his voice to calm my nerves before walking down the aisle."
"In the middle of our ΓÇ£helloΓÇÖsΓÇ¥ and ΓÇ£I love youΓÇÖsΓÇ¥ he started singing to me (Strangers In The Night ΓÇô Frank Sinatra). I, of course, burst into tears knowing that I was about to marry the sweetest man I have ever known."
Do you have any wedding advice to other brides?
"Make time to take a step back and take it all in! It goes by SO fast."
