Where did you and your fiancé meet?
We met on Mutual!
How did he propose?
I was on a trip with my family in St. George and he was in Salt Lake (or so I thought). That afternoon my family went to one of our favorite parks with a large pond. As we were walking around the pond, I noticed hearts leading down the path. My first thought was that someone was getting proposed to, but I had no idea it was me. I was certain that he was four hours away. I kept walking along the path and all of the sudden I saw him standing next to the pond with flowers and a small, red box. Best surprise ever!
Describe your wedding in 4 words:
Beautiful, Elegant, Relaxed, Lovely
Why did you choose to wear a modest wedding dress for your big day?
I always knew I wanted a modest wedding dress that I could feel beautiful and confident in. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and we planned on getting married in the temple. I was grateful that I was able to find my dream dress that was beautiful and modest.
What was your favorite part of the day?
I loved our ceremony and dancing with my husband at the end of the reception.
What did you splurge or save on?
I splurged on the dress and venue. We saved by doing some of our own décor at the reception.

Additional comments or advice for other brides:
Soak up and enjoy every minute of your big day! Take some time just to talk with your husband, family, and close friends who are there to support you! The day goes by so fast and it’s nice to take a couple of minutes to relax, breathe and savor the moment.
Planning a wedding during the Covid pandemic came with many challenges. I went to several dress shops and they told me that due to shipments being stopped I would have to buy a dress off of the rack. I had a particular style in mind and felt devastated that I couldn’t find what I wanted. I came across Elizabeth Cooper’s website and immediately fell in love with several of their dresses. When I called, they said they had multiple sizes in stock of each of their dresses that I would be able to choose from. I tried on the Holly dress and immediately knew it was the one. I also loved that it came with a lace up back so that I didn’t need any alterations done to it. In addition, I got the most beautiful veil from Elizabeth Cooper. I am so grateful that I was able to have the dress of my dreams, despite having to make a lot of other changes to our big day.
