What is your special Engagement story?
-We got engaged at Disneyworld 🙂 my whole family made a trip for my parents 30th anniversary and on the first night there Alex had planned a special boat ride for us all to watch the fireworks from the water! He got so nervous he popped the question right before they started!! It was so cute and magical how the fireworks started just as I had finished saying yes!!
The ceremony and reception were located at:
-Both the ceremony and reception were located at Hacienda Del Lago on Lake Travis!! Absolutely beautiful view and the owner couldn’t have been more professional, sweeter or helpful!!

Can you tell us the dress maker for your gown and any details we can add to the blog?
-I got my dress from A&BÈ bridal in Dallas. It was a romantic dress capped in lace!!
What made your wedding day unique?
-Oh my, well it poured rain!! But it made it super special and unique and stopped raining for the ceremony and started again! So fun and kept people on their feet. I wouldn’t have changed it for anything! Made everything a lot calmer and fun/funny!
What was your biggest splurge?
-Our biggest splurge was probably the food trucks! We had 3 tacos, sliders, and pizza!
Can you pick a favorite moment on the Wedding day that you would like to share?
My favorite moment was walking down the isle to see Alex (longest day ever without him!!!!), everyone else there just disappeared. There were close to 175 people at our wedding and I just wanted to run to him! The only thing I could see or focus on.
Did you find a great honeymoon place? Can you share any fun excursions or advice to others?
-We went to Maui for our honeymoon!!! So super special and romantic. We had a blast, and happened to find the best lobster Benedict on earth in the cutest little cafe on the beach we ran into on pure accident! (They had great mimosas too ;))
What are other points or advice you would like to share about your love story or wedding day to other new brides?
-Just take it step by step and don’t sweat the small stuff!! People are coming to your wedding to celebrate you not judge! There are countless things you can put so much thought into that most people don’t even see that day! Be happy and feel the love, you are getting to marry your soul mate!!
