What is a Grace Woman to you?
Effortless, fun and confident in who she is.
What is it you loved about your GLL gown and accessories?
I loved how comfortable I felt in the dress which made me feel confident.
Did you go to a GLL showroom or purchase your gown online? Tell us about this experience.
I was able to visit the stunning San Diego showroom. I had the best time trying on different dresses and ended up finding my dream dress with the help of the amazing ladies in the showroom who were so kind and helpful.
Describe your wedding day look…
Effortless, romantic and timeless.
How did he/she propose?
He took me out to dinner and after we walked across the street to the beach in Laguna Beach. My sister and his brother (who set us up 11 years ago) had set up a little picnic on the beach with flowers and champagne. It was so sweet and romantic.
What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?
My goal was to make sure the wedding represented my husband and I as a couple. It had a laid back, romantic feel. Our guests told us after how much fun they had, which was another big goal of ours.
What was the most stressful part to planning?
For me, almost all of it. I’m not the best when it comes to making decisions and only having a day of coordinator meant I had to make a ton. Luckily my sister who was also my matron of honor helped me every step of the way. I couldn’t have done it without her.
The funniest moment on the day was…
The funniest moment of the day had to be the best man speech. He shared some fun memories that made everyone laugh.
Any top beauty/health/fitness or wedding preparation advice that you can share…
Don’t stress over trying to look perfect for your wedding. Your mental health is more important than anything.
Any last advice of words of wisdom that you can share with future GRACE brides...
When planning your wedding make sure to stay true to who you and your partner are as a couple. Don’t be afraid to say no to typical wedding traditions that you don’t like. Try to relax and enjoy every single moment because it truly does go by so fast.
