ECD bride Kylie wore the Sennet gown. She had the sleeves altered into a short cap, perfect for her summer wedding. Kylie added her own personal touch to her wedding gown by using a blue ribbon to lace up the back. Her wedding was at the Payson temple and her reception was at her parent's beautiful backyard. We asked Kylie a few questions about her wedding, here's what she said:
Where did you and your fiancé meet?
My husband and I met at our singles ward.
How did he propose?
We had gone for a drive to my favorite spot that overlooks Utah Lake. Earlier in the day he had gotten a puppy and had his brother, take the puppy to this spot and hide it behind a big boulder. So unaware of the puppy, we get to the spot and as soon as we stop, Austin is hopping out saying he saw something behind the Boulder and asked if I was going to check it out. Not wanting to because it was cold and windy, but curious, I got and go over to find a tiny chocolate lab thinking someone had left him. Until Austin tells me to see if he has any tags and he did, one that said "will you marry me" engraved on it. I turn around and Austin was down I one knee and I said yes.
Describe your wedding in 4 words:
Everything I ever wanted.
What did you splurge on?
Definitely splurged on photography, but they turned out beautiful, so it was well beyond worth it!
What did you save on?
Saved so much money only dress! To find a dress that I wanted, affordable and modest, was not happening, even finding a dress I liked and could have alterations done on it, was well over $1,000. So thank you for making beautiful gowns that are modest and affordable!
What was your favorite part of the day?
Other than marrying the man of my dreams? I'd say it would have to be spending time with close friends and family and enjoying the celebration with everyone who supported our decision.
Any advise for future brides?
My advice would be to have people you TRUST in charge of the big important things. You shouldn't be stressing about anything! Just make sure you make it well understood everything you want and how you expect it to turn out for your big day so you can show up and take off when you need to!
Congratulations to Kylie and her new husband!
