Aaron and Haley
How did you meet the love of your life?
We met our freshman year of high school in Spanish class. We had to dance for an assignment, and I asked him to be my partner. He declined my offer, but we instantly became friends and still laugh about it today.
When did you know that this person had stolen your heart?
We had been good friends for a couple of years, and I had a huge crush on him the whole time. We began dating after we both realized we liked each other more than friends. He stole my heart the minute we became friends.
Tell us about the proposal?
Aaron proposed where we had our first kiss- in the driveway of his grandparents' house on 7/3/2017. It was completely unexpected, and I was in shock. He had a family friend there to take photos.
Explain to us how you found Wear Your Love?
I was looking around on Pinterest for dresses, and I knew I wanted a certain style. I came across what I later found out to be the Zoey Scoop back dress.
When did you know you had found your perfect dress?
I never actually went wedding dress shopping. I had found Wear Your Love online and knew I would love the Zoey Scoop Back dress. I loved that lace detail, the sleeves, the back, the length and color, and the skirt- everything about the dress was what I imagined I would be wearing.
What went through your mind when the Wear Your Love box arrived at your doorstep, and you pulled out your dress for the first time?
I had it sent to my mom's house, and she sent me a picture of it, and the first thing I thought was "oh my gosh it's in a tiny box." I rushed there after work and took it out and thought it was just like the pictures. Beautiful and elegant, and just so simple and classy.
What was your wedding theme or style?
My theme was very minimalist. The venue I chose was very pretty with a lot of natural light, wood, and stone. The style was a lot of wood accessories and simple decorations. The colors were navy, blush, and lots of greenery!
Let's show your wedding venue some love! What is the name of the wedding venue you chose and why did you choose them for your special day?
The venue I chose was The Springs Event Venue- Lodge in Aubrey, TX. The Springs is beautiful, all of their venues are, but I chose their Lodge venue because it was exactly the look I wanted for my fall wedding. It has a beautiful grand staircase, fireplace, an outdoor balcony overlooking the leaves changing, and an amazing staff. I chose my own vendors, and the venue offers so many amenities.
What was on your wedding soundtrack playlist, aisle, reception, and first dance?
The processional was a piano instrumental of "Can't Help Falling in Love with You," recessional was "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," Reception was a mix of everything!, and First dance was an acoustic version of "The one" by Kodaline.

Tell us your favorite moment from your wedding?
My favorite moment was the first look. I always said I wouldn't do one, but my photographers advised me to do one because it's so intimate and special. The whole day was a whirlwind of planning, getting ready, getting asked a million questions. But this one private moment with your person is all worth it, and it made me even more excited for the rest of the day!
Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for anyone planning a wedding?
Enjoy it. Do a little bit every week, so you don't procrastinate! It's so much work, but on the day of, it will all come together, and it will go by so fast. Don't worry about the color of the napkins- no one notices. Invest in good photographers, DJ, and the food and drinks most! Your vendors are the ones who are there to help you so make sure you get great ones like I did!
How would you rate your overall experience with Wear Your Love?
5 out of 5 stars.
Congratulations Aaron and Haley!

There wasn't exactly a 'moment' but eventually, I realized that I didn't want to experience life without him in it. We are an amazing team and always make it a point to make our life FUN. He is the most kind hearted, caring, hardworking and hilarious person I've ever known and I'm so grateful to have him in my life!
When did you know you had found your perfect dress?
I never really did the traditional bridal shop experience - I just knew this was the dress and the kind of company I wanted to work with.
I was excited but so nervous to put it on. Chris took my measurements for me and we sent them in. I was scared that it wouldn't fit so I actually waited a day or so to put it on. (Silly I know) But I put it on and OH MY GOSH! It fit PERFECTLY! The length of the skirt and the sleeves, the loose fabric but still tight enough to hug my curves. It was a dream! Aside from my wedding, I wore it a year later for bridals, and just did a sexy anniversary photoshoot wearing the top! It has been better than I could have expected.
