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

I felt like an actual princess. I loved that it felt like such a classic look while still having some flair with the beading.

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

He teared up as I walked down the aisle and throughout our ceremony!

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

Relax and do your best! I was pretty stressed out because I didn’t pay a lot of attention to or want to spend a ton of money on decor or flowers because I didn’t care about them and it turns out it didn’t matter anyway! Spend money on what’s important to you- for me that was my dress and the photographer!
