Wedding Planning Experience:

“I found it to be rather easy, I do not consider myself to be a bridezilla, perhaps too laid back at times. However, the last two weeks leading up to the wedding were very stressful. However, on my wedding day, I found that anything that I had stressed about did not matter!”

Favorite Wedding Memory:

“Spending the entire morning with the girls who mean the most to me. My day started at 5 am which was the time that the hairdresser arrived. My cousin and maid of honor, Rachel, took me to a solid-core class which was such a fun experience. We shared many laughs and made great memories as we got glammed up for the day. The other great moment was when my father gave his speech which was a story about the days leading up to my birth. Sharing one room and dance floor with the people that I love the most is my fondest memory and I will hold it in my heart forever!”

Wedding Planning Advice:

“Don’t stress, something crazy will happen or go wrong and it will not matter. For me, the trolley that my parents hired was not at the hotel to take us to the church on time so myself and the bridal party had to take Ubers to the church!”
