We sat down with another beautiful Wonderland bride to get her love story. Meet Dawn & Tobias, who were married May 27th, 2017.
When and how did you meet?
We were introduced by a mutual friend on my 26th birthday in 2014 downtown Ft. Lauderdale. I invited her to come out and celebrate and she asked if she could bring the “new” guy at work since he was new to town.
How long did you date before he popped the question?
We didn’t start dating until about 5 months after we met. We were dating about a year and a half before he popped the question.
How did he propose?
He proposed at a waterfall on a hike in South Carolina. We were supposed to go to a waterfall lookout but they hadn’t pruned the trees yet so we did the actual hike to the waterfall completely unprepared. We ended up doing a 10 mile hike that day with 2 bottles of water!
Where were you married and how did you pick the place?
We were married on Pompano Beach, FL and I picked the location because we have a family beach house there. I knew from when I was a little girl that that’s where I wanted to get married. Tobias and I also shared our very first kiss on that beach.
What theme and/or colors have you chosen for your wedding and why?
My theme for the wedding was beachy rustic which is our style as a couple. We chose the colors tan, dusty blue, a muted peach, a coraly pink, and a seafoam green. I know they sound like a crazy mixture but together they are very beachy!
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
That is still up in the air where we are going. My husband travels for work so we are just trying to figure out when and where we can go.
Why did you chose Wonderland Bridal for your dream dress?
They had my dress. I went to around a dozen different stores before to try on dresses. Some had tops that I loved and some had bottoms that I loved but none that I loved the entire dress. Wonderland actually had 2 similar dress that I loved but one stood out a little more than the other with the detailing be more me and my style.
Share your experience about your time with Wonderland Bridal.
They were great! Very attentive and helpful!
What was the best part of your wedding day?
Getting to spend it with everyone that we love at the place where it all started.
Any advice to future couples currently planning a wedding?
Unless you have tons of time on your hands, still seek a professional to help you because a wedding is not like a normal party. There are more facets than you realize and having all the small personal touches is what makes your day unique as well as what you remember. Also, enjoy your day. It goes by too quickly. Almost on fast forward.

- Flowers: Consider silk for outdoor wedding for part of your decor. We only used real flowers on table because we knew it would be too hot for the flowers to make it through the whole wedding.
- Cake: We did Publix. They do a great job and are worth throwing into places to check out.
- Catering: We chose our favorite restaurant, Little Havanas in Deerfield Beach. Pick something that you both love!
