“My dreams came true the day I married my best friend on October 8, 2016. I always dreamed of having a big wedding and a huge wedding dress! Funny thing was I had picked a completely different dress the first time I went to Bianca’s Bridal Couture. After a couple of months went by, I could not get Maeve by Sophia Tolli out of my head! My mom told me to call the store and have that dress ordered instead. She said that when she got married she also ended up changing her mind on the first dress she picked, so I guess I was just following tradition! The first time I put Maeve on I absolutely fell in love! It was the long train I always dreamed of and the skirt was detachable so I could dance around in my mermaid gown all night! It was perfect!
Now came the rest of our wedding. We got married at the University of Pacific wedding chapel, which had the most beautiful stained glass windows. We had a Catholic mass and I remember feeling so nervous. As soon as my husband took my hand, all my nerves went away! Our 2 year old son was up there with us the entire time which made our day even more special. Next was the reception. I am a very DIY person so I got a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest of course! Our colors were gold, blush, and wine. Our hall had brick walls on both sides to compliment our elegant wedding. I made all the table numbers, our cake box, our toasting glasses, our invitations, our seating chart, our sign in picture frame, and I made thank you cards for each plate. My mom even made my veil! It was so much hard work, but when I saw how everything was put together it was so worth it and it made our wedding that much more personal. We now have pictures and video to remember our special day. It was truly the best day!”
