Q1: Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette? Did you incorporate any cultural or religious traditions in any part of your day?
A: My theme was beach glam and I wanted to use a very white and clean look. I’ve always wanted to have a beach wedding but I also wanted it to look very classic and timeless at the same time. I want to look back and still love my decorations instead of doing things that are trendy at the time.
Q2: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.
A: We met on a dating app called Bumble and instantly had a connection, he proposed after 8 months of dating on his favorite beach in Hawaii. I was completely shocked and had no idea it was coming because I never would think a man would propose without a woman nagging him, hahaha and I haven't had a chance to nag him about it yet, hahaha.
Q3: What were the florals like in your wedding? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding?
A: Yes, I used all white flowers. They played an important part in bringing the glam alive to a beach setting.
Q4: What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?
A: The most anticipated part was the vows. I have been dreading saying them because I’m not an emotional person but here is was about to be very emotional in front of all my friends and family and it's recorded. I couldn’t keep the tears from running down my face during the ceremony. It was the most emotional day of my life.
Q5: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you'd like to share with other couples planning their day?
A: Yes, do yourself a favor and get a wedding planner if it's in the budget. It’s the best money spent other than the photographer and videographer. Most people have never thrown a wedding so all the elements and details are important and there’s so many that you should leave it to an expert to keep you less stressed during this stressful time.
