In 2008, Brian and I met on my first day of college. Over the next several years, we graduated, began our careers, moved into our first apartment, adopted a dog, and got engaged! Although the time flew by we were married on our six year dating anniversary, September 5th, 2014.We were married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Darien, Illinois and hosted our reception at Hotel Arista in Naperville, Illinois. We spent the day laughing and celebrating with our family, friends, and of course…each other! The entire day was perfect from beginning to end. We were very fortunate to be able to have the wedding of our dreams and be surrounded by all the people that we love.In addition to a perfect day, I had the perfect wedding dress. When looking for a dress, I wanted something that was beautiful and effortlessly elegant; Paloma Blanca captured both in Style 4364. Many people complimented that they had not seen a dress in this style before, which is exactly why I fell in love with the dress! I also received many compliments on how incredible the detailed lace and Bateau stretch net neckline was. Thank you, Paloma Blanca!
