I am a very spontaneous person so little did I know, my husband tried on multiple occasions to plan his proposal, but I kept changing plans not knowing his agenda. My husband is a police officer and works graveyard, so the day of the proposal he had been sleeping for most of the day. He woke up abruptly and told me he wanted to go to a winery nearby to have a glass and relax. It was the fall, the weather was beautiful and it was almost sunset. We made it to the winery, grabbed a glass of wine and went and sat by a pond that is on-site. Shortly after, my husband said he needed water and walked back over to the counter. Little did I know, he was explaining his plans to propose to the owner and recruiting the only other couple there to take pictures during the special moment.
When he got back over to me, something seemed off and he was extremely nervous. I started asking some prying questions and thought in my head, “is he going to ask me to marry him?!” I looked over and saw the couple he recruited and noticed my husband’s phone in the gentleman’s hand. Now I had confirmation and panic ensued. My husband asked if I wanted to take a picture with him with the sunset but I quickly said no. Knowing that if I left the comfort of the chair I was sitting on, he was going to pop the question. I remember being so nervous and not wanting to be the center of attention but eventually I knew the inevitable had to happen. I love this man and no longer needed to be scared of being vulnerable. I got up, grabbed my hand, got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Of course, I said yes and the rest is history.
Finding the Perfect Martina Liana Wedding Dress
During my wedding dress shopping experience, I realized very quickly that I am a very indecisive person. I found a dress at the first boutique I visited and allowed the excitement from my family to influence me to say yes to the dress. My mom bought the dress for me and I thought that was it. But there was something inside me that was not satisfied. I continued to look on Pinterest at wedding dress ideas and came across a post showing a bride in a Martina Liana dress- Style 905. It looked breathtaking, I could not stop thinking about it and needed to try it on. I ended up finding a boutique that had it, tried it on and at that moment, I knew it was the one. It fit my bridal style of French rustic draped with intricate lace and a train that stole the show. I have never felt so beautiful!
The Wedding Details
The theme for my wedding was French rustic with an abundance of greenery and mauve as the color scheme. I made my wedding personal to our love story by making sure that everyone who attended our wedding felt included and had a special place in our journey. We dedicated a table to specific family members and friends that couldn’t attend the wedding because they, unfortunately, passed away. Both my husband and I are Veterans, and it is a tradition that during a military ceremony, there is a table dedicated to military members who have been Killed in Action or have been deemed Missing in Action. It was only fitting for us to ensure that this tradition was fulfilled at our wedding.
The most special memory from the day I got married to my husband was my 8-year-old son walking me down the aisle and giving me away. I have two kids from a previous relationship and had been their sole provider since they were 2 and 3 years old. We have been through many hardships together but in the end, we always had each other. My husband came into our lives at the perfect time and has been the best example of a husband and father that we could ever ask for. My son giving me a way to him was the final step of acceptance and finally becoming a family.
