Tell us about your proposal…
The proposal happened in Silverton , CO. We had decided to go to Silverton for an ATV adventure with rock pirates on my birthday in September. After a freak snow storm happened after Labor Day, our adventure got cancelled, so we decided to take a hike in the mountains to get a view of Silverton. We were about to turn around on the mountain when he got down and proposed. It was a beautiful moment on the Silverton mountainside!
How did you know that Stella York Style 6839 was the one?
I wanted my bridal gown to be elegant , classy, and modern…I didn’t want anything over the top but just enough, that’s how I knew Style 6839 was the perfect dress for me.
My dress shopping experience was beautiful since I just had my grandmother and my mother in law with me. My grandmother always wanted to be a designer and her eye for detail is very good. I wanted to include his mother so I asked her to come and she was very helpful in the process of choosing the “right dress”.
How did you make your wedding personal to your style and love story?
The theme of our wedding was country elegance since it was at an old cotton gin that had been turned into a wedding venue . The colors of our wedding were shades of blue with the main color being ice blue and indigo blue with pops of white . My new husband chose the color and I just loved the idea since it was a May wedding and it fit the Dixie gin just perfectly. The main flower was white rose with pops of blue.
We made our wedding more personal since we met on Tinder . I had an 8×10 poster of us saying “It’’s a Match“ and used our old profile pictures. I even had cookies made with the Tinder logo that said #weswipedright!
What was the most memorable part of your wedding?
Well it’s hard to choose just one special moment since I have many. The moments I love best are when my bridesmaids saw me in my dress for the first time, and when my grandmother first saw me, since my mother is gone. I also loved the moment my mother-in-law saw me in my dress. Last but certainly not least, I loved when my new husband and I did our couple photoshoot, and the veil shots my photographer captured of us. We had sparklers sending us off at night at our venue, and it was just perfect.
