What was your partner’s reaction when they first saw you?

He was completely shocked! I asked him after if this is what he thought my dress would look like and he said no, but it was even better than what he imagined.

How did you feel in your dress on your wedding day?

I have never felt more beautiful in my dress! I was so worried since I bought the dress January 2020 and I had a baby just 6 months before our wedding. The dress was my pre-pregnancy size so I was so afraid I wouldn’t fit or look good in my dress since my body has changed so much. Boy I was wrong, I looked so good and it made me feel so confident that I looked so good after just having a baby!

What piece of advice would you give brides planning their wedding?

Some advice for brides planning their wedding is to remember it is about your fiancé and you, no one else. When I first started planning I put all this pressure on myself to make it an amazing day for everyone attending. Then once we had to postpone a whole year, I came to the realization that this day is for my fiancé and I. So I made sure to play the songs we wanted, to have the food we loved, to get the wine I love to drink, and much more. By doing this, our wedding was more than I could have ever dreamed and I wouldn’t have changed a single thing!

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

During our reception, our 6 month old son was getting tired, so we took him to the groom’s suite to try and get him to sleep. At that moment it was just the three of us. No cameras, no wedding guests, just our little family soaking in every moment. We could hear everyone having a great time during our reception, but I didn’t want this moment to end.

How was your experience with Sophia’s?

I had the best experience at Sophia’s! I actually had two dresses from Sophia’s for my wedding day and both experiences were amazing. The stylists made me feel so confident in every dress and really knew how to find my style, even when I didn’t know what style I wanted. The amount of dresses at Sophia’s really blew me away and they are all so beautiful.. I couldn’t recommend Sophia’s enough!
