I met my husband at our prior jobs. We instantly became best friends and shortly after started to date. Three years later Nate popped the question on New Year’s eve.
Dress shopping was something that was bitter sweet to me. Unfortunately my birth mother was unable to be there because she had passed away from cancer. We always dreamed and imagined the day that I would try on wedding dresses. I am blessed to have an amazing father and stepmother who made the day special. My stepmother even had notes written by my mom to me sewn into my wedding dress. This way she could be with me for my special day.
I was absolutely shocked when I realized that the second dress I tried on was the one. I just knew it in my heart! I was later told that while I was trying on other dresses my stepmother told my family that dress was the one simply because of how happy I was and to not sway me into getting any other dress. It’s funny because I didn’t even originally pick out this dress because it wasn’t the style I had thought that I wanted. Boy was I wrong because that Crêpe material hugged my body so perfectly! I ended up adding straps simply because I have small breasts and wanted to feel secure when bending over. Thank you for giving me my dream wedding dress!
