Amber and Justin’s wedding was a very simple and sweet elopement. This is one of our many unique wedding submissions we’ve featured and the photos they have shared with us don’t even do justice as to how magical this moment was!

How did you meet?

We met in high school! I was a freshman and he was a junior!

What is your proposal story?

He popped the question at a gorgeous gazebo right by the water in Fulton, NY!

What were your favorite parts of the day?

My grandfather turning around & seeing my dress for the first time was my favorite moment, besides marrying the love of my life of course, haha! My grandfather is my entire world, I was so blessed to have him walk me down the aisle. Our special day was amazing. Small, intimate, with just immediate family. It was perfect.

Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?

Go slow, take your time! Go explore vendors & locations. Make lots of lists! Remember, this day is about YOU & YOUR MARRIAGE — nobody else!

Any advice for your fellow plus size brides?

You are beautiful. Don’t ever forget that. Get a dress that makes you feel like the sexy & fierce woman you are!
