Tell us about your gown?
My gown was by Essense of Australia with a beaded top and in the fit and flare style. I chose to go with a "blush color" to show my unique style instead of the traditional white.
Describe your man?
Andrew is hilarious but serious all at the same time. He is always making me feel loved and special and always knows the right thing to say. When it came to wedding planning he was pretty hands off but wanted to stick with a traditional style which I loved.
What traditions did you incorporate into your wedding day?
We made sure the first time we saw each other that day was when I walked down the aisle, the anticipation was so high and made for such a special moment.
Favorite wedding moment?
Our first dance was my favorite moment. It was really the only time all night we were able to be just the two of us, even though everyone was gathered around. I wish I could relive that moment over and over.
Detail your flowers for us?
We both wanted very simple, hence the single flowers in the centerpieces, I absolutely love garden roses so we made sure to incorporate them in my bouquet which with very neutral in color which complemented my dress. My bridesmaids carried hydrangeas with complemented the location and spring time feel we were going for. Also, the orchids hanging in the tree for our ceremony were absolutely my favorite part of our decorations. They were so delicate and beautiful and our guests could not stop talking about how much they loved them. They created the perfect backdrop for the moment we said I do.
Describe your day in one sentence?
Our wedding day was the most magical day of my life that I wish I could do over and over again.
Best advice for a bride to be?
Relax and enjoy every moment and don't sweat the small stuff because before you know it the day will be over.
