How did the two of you meet? We met through a “mutual friend,” that friend being Who knew it work out! Describe your engagement: He proposed at the Sushi place we went to on our first date. He was so cute because I had an inkling he was going to and he was acting SOOOO nervous. He had us seated at the exact table of our first date and left to “use the restroom.” When he came back he went straight down to one knee and proposed while the waiter was filming us and the whole restaurant was cheering him on. Tears filled both of our eyes and it was the happiest I could have ever been. Plus the ring was AMAZING! ; ) Personal or handmade details: I used my mother’s veil with my dress. I loved incorporating that into my wedding and it went together perfectly with my dress. My husband restores classic porsche’s so I had his groom cake made into his favorite yellow Porsche 914. Describe your Flowers: My flowers were so beautiful. Very romantic using champagne roses, white freesias, and numerous other beautiful cream and pink flowers. Your first dance song: My Love by Lionel Ritchie The thing that we would have done differently is? The only advise I could give was that I wish I was more in the moment, because it literally felt like a blur. It really does go by fast on your wedding day, so take in everything and stop to smell the roses! Other than that I was completely satisfied with everything on my wedding day! J Your advice for other plus size brides: Have people around you on your day that make you feel BEAUTIFUL! My best friend, mom, and everyone getting us ready really made me feel special and it definitely helped with my confidence and nerves! What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage? How we are both still amazed at how fast last year went with all the wedding festivities. We are just now settling in routines with our little family and I have never been more reassured that I made the perfect choice in such an amazing husband and daddy to our son Reece!
