We sat down with another beautiful Wonderland bride to get her love story. Meet Erica & John, who were married July 1st, 2017.
When and how did you meet?
July of 2009 through mutual friends. We starting dating in January 2012.
How long did you date before he popped the question?
2 years and 10 months. we bought a house after dating a year and a half though.
How did he propose?
I had a birthday brunch with friends and family in Fort Lauderdale, he decided last minute to propose to me at the restaurant and just could not wait until our vacation to NYC.
Where were you married and how did you pick the place?
The Church by the Sea in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and our reception was at the Josephine Leiser Opera Center.. The Opera center was sold weeks before, so we were the last wedding or event to be held there. The church and venue allowed me to customize and plan every single detail the way that I wanted.
What theme and/or colors have you chosen for your wedding and why?
My colors were white and silver, I didn’t exactly have a theme, but I would call it classic and elegant. I had little diamonds and candles on every table with white and silver china place settings and white roses in silver vases.
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
Italy and Greece- Rome, Mykonos, and Athens.
Why did you chose Wonderland Bridal for your dream dress?
I wanted to find something unique and that could make a statement. I had a horrible experience at a different bridal store, and not only did I rush but settled on something that was bland and not me. Wonderland Bridal made me my dreams come true. I was showered with compliments about my dress during my entire reception.
Share your experience about your time with Wonderland Bridal.
I had less than 4 months until my wedding and was panicking, Alicyn got me an appointment right away, stayed in my budget, and was patient yet honest with me as I tried different dresses on. I picked out and ordered my dream dress during that very appointment.
What was the best part of your wedding day?
It is so difficult to pick a particular moment, but I think when my husband was reading his personally written vows to me, he literally was choked up and staring into my eyes.
