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 who was involved in making your special day perfect?

Photography by Moth + Moonlite Photography

Hair- Jordan Blackwood, Make-up-Taylor Lawson, Catering: Palio's Pizza Cafe, DJ-All Access DJ, Florist- Main Street Florist Decatur TX, Bartending- JC Bartending. 

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!

TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?

My husband and I decided to meet my parents in Panama and explore the country together. On the third day, we decided to do a coffee tour in a beautiful town called Boquete. We learned how the coffee was processed from the bean to coffee grounds. At the end of the tour, we had the chance to make and drink our own coffee. After several shots of espresso, we decided to go up a hill and take a picture with the mountains behinds us. Before I knew it, he was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Second best day of my life apart from my wedding day!!

Explain to us how you found Wear Your Love?

I can't remember how I first discovered Wear Your Love. I fell into a few Pinterest and Instagram rabbit holes while wedding planning. Once I discovered Wear Your Love, I knew they had exactly the type of dress I was looking for. I fell in love with the elegant simplicity of each of their gowns.

When did you know that this person had stolen your heart?

Sounds cliche, but honestly it was right from the beginning. Blake just felt like home from day one. I remember before we were even dating pulling up to his driveway, getting out of the car, running up to him and being SO stoked to see each other every single time, even if it had only been a day or so. We each personally had gone through a lot to get to where we are today, so we were just so happy to have found each other.
