How did he propose?
He proposed while we were on a dog walk with our two puppies, on a tiny little private island in Florida. It was a surprise.
What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?
The most important aspect was that we were able to have all of our family there. His mom was diagnosed with cancer and my dad had a heart attack within two weeks of getting engaged. We were so lucky to have them with us on our wedding day.
How did you choose Le Rose for your wedding robes?
Le Rose was recommended to me by our photographer, Cassandra Ladru.
What did you like the most about your Le Rose Robes?
The fabric and lace design was absolutely fabulous. It felt classic and modern at the same time. They made me feel beautiful.
Were there funny moments from the day?
A funny fact is that we had planned our entire wedding outside, and it ended up being the rainiest and coldest day of the year so far. It was horrible outside, so we had the entire wedding switched to be inside the day before!
What was your favourite moment while getting ready in your Le Rose robes?
I loved being with my favorite ladies, and making them feel lovely inside and out. It was especially fun to have my mum and my little cousin there too, in their robes, feeling like stars.
What wisdom or advice can you share to other Le Rose Brides?
The wedding day truly goes by so fast. Take time to breath and enjoy every moment.
