The First Meeting

We actually used to work for the same company so we’d always see each other around the office and just got to talking one day.

The Proposal

He proposed to me during the TV show “Family Guy” completely out of the blue. Honestly, if that isn’t a dream proposal, I’m not really sure what is!

The Gown

My bridal gown was handmade by Neomi Pereira from Neomi Allens Couture. I wanted something modern, western and elegant but with a whisper of The East. Neomi brought it to life and her creation was gracefully modern, effortlessly elegant and the perfect harmony of East and West. What stood out to me were the details, the tiny flowers, sewn by hand, with love in every stitch, the pearls, the lace, the collar….all amazing.

East meets West Glamorous Wedding Style

I envisioned the style of East meets the West. The theme for the day was black and gold with a touch of the 1920s. I definitely wanted a golden touch of glamour throughout the day.

The Reception

We wanted a place that was intimate and beautiful. As soon as I saw the court yard and the beautiful willow tree of The Willows, we knew that we found the perfect reception venue.

Your Favorite Moment

Was of course marrying the love of my life and getting to share the day with the closest people in our lives.

DIY décor elements

I did all the signage’s for the wedding, as well as the guest book and photo booth. It was fun to get a bit creative!

If you could do it all over again, what would you change?

Nothing, we absolutely enjoyed every moment of it!

Tips for future brides
