Hey girl, hey!! Today’s gorgeous plus size bride looks amazing in her Great Gatsby/Art Deco themed wedding with pops of gold and blush. First off, I’m absolutely in love with the roaring 20’s and Great Gatsby time period! Plus the gold and blush are one of my favorite color combinations.  This wedding just makes me so happy!

How did he propose? We took a road trip to New Mexico and he proposed on a mountain top on my birthday.

Tips you could pass on to other brides in the planning process? Involve your groom. My groom has helped so much with the planning and it has been an amazing bonding experience for us. Not to mention it takes away a lot of stress.

How did you know that he was THE ONE for you? It was the most honest 1st and 2nd date that I had ever been on. We were both getting out of long term relationships when we found each other and we were both really upfront about everything. We learned nearly everything about each other in 36 hours. it was wonderful! He really took me for exactly who I am and I did the same thing.
