We met through mutual friends over the fourth of July. They had told me I should go with them to one of their hometowns to meet their friend, Pat. After thinking about it a little bit I thought, what do I have to lose?! Best decision I ever made was going with them! We met and had a connection instantly. The one test was that we were 3 hours apart. After dating and doing long distance for one year we knew we had to be closer. Patrick moved and we got engaged shortly after in the same city that we met, Marinette, WI.
I got my dress at Marah’s Elegant Bridal in Mount Horeb, WI. It is the cutest little boutique dress shop and exactly the type of place I imagined I would find my dress at. The dress didn’t come with the half sleeves; I was going back and forth and decided if I didn’t add them I would regret it. I had Mikealla Bridal send the lace that the dress is made from and I am so glad added them, it made the dress more me!
