"We've never been a formal couple, so he proposed to me sitting on a rock next to me, both of us sweaty and gross from the hike. I didn't need him down on one knee; I loved being eye to eye with him as he read old letters he'd written when he decided he was going to marry me, years before that moment in the Rockies"
"We went on a camping trip for the weekend to the beautiful Sequoias. My car ended up breaking down and we had to spend the weekend in Fresno, CA. His phone had <5% left and this is all we had to find a hotel, Uber etc. He somehow figured out an Uber back and fourth to the grocery store to get us food, but most importantly my contact solution and a toothbrush! I definitely knew at the time he was 'the one'."
"I found Wear Your Love by simply googling long sleeve wedding dresses. They had the widest range of the most beautiful long sleeve dresses I could find. I fell in love with the Jade dress as soon as I saw it! I also love how the dresses are ethically made."
"Our story is a little different from normal but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Having a child together before marriage or in early stages of a relationship, you tend to move out of the honeymoon stage rather quickly but after our wedding day, I felt it has lit up again, and each day I get to call Guy my husband and love him harder and harder. I get to do forever with him, and that’s the most exciting part!"
"Nick and I read our vows to each other privately, during our first look. It was so special to have a moment that was quiet and just us pouring out our hearts."
"OMG I was so excited yet scared that my measurements were off! I tried it on with my best friend and knew this was it. The dress fit PERFECTLY and was a dream to wear. The fabric was comfortable, stretchy, yet kept its fit."
"Just knowing the commitment we made to one another has provided me with such a feeling of love, serenity, and security. I am just so happy."
"The moment that makes me smile the most though was one shared by only Cory and I. The two of us were not quite ready for the night to end when everyone else turned in. Cory and I stayed out on the patio, under the stars, for over an hour after everyone else had gone to bed slow dancing to our wedding playlist."
"I think it's best when you and your chosen life partner approach the wedding planning as teammates. As long as you have each other throughout the process, the rest will follow along seamlessly."
"I think that the best part of being married so far has been the comfort of knowing that whatever the future holds, I am well loved and get to spend my days loving someone who loves me."
"I found Wear Your Love and the Ari dress almost a year before we were engaged, and couldn’t get it out of my mind. I would even say the dress influenced the venue - I had 'rose garden' on my mind while we were searching, thanks to Ari!"
"Make it what you want. Ultimately people won’t remember the details, but you will. We also highly recommend the small intimate wedding! It lets you really enjoy everything and each other."
