Love Story: Tracey & Justin


We sat down with another beautiful Wonderland bride to get her love story. Meet Nathalie & Jose, who were married December 3rd, 2017.


When and how did you meet?

Justin was working as a firefighter for Fort Lauderdale, and I an emergency room nurse in downtown Fort Lauderdale. We were friends for 4 years before dating. Immediately we both felt this was something special from the beginning.

How long did you date before he popped the question?

We were together a 1 ½ year before Justin popped the question. He was waiting for me to finish Grad school so that I wouldn’t be distracted.

How did he propose?

Justin and I had a favorite picnic spot in Tree Tops Park, after completing my final certification test for school Justin planned a picnic day for us to celebrate. As we walked to the spot I noticed a white blanket with rose petals, and our song “Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett was playing. He led me over to our tree which he had engraved “Tracey Will You Marry Me” got down on one knee and popped the question. It was romantic, meaningful and perfect for us!


Where were you married and how did you pick the place?

The Addison in Boca Raton, we wanted to get married under the beautiful Banyon Trees there as a symbol from our engagement day.

What theme and/or colors have you chosen for your wedding and why?

The colors were blush & burgundy with a rustic romantic theme. We really wanted to celebrate love with a lot of natural wood/rustic elements.

Where did you go for your honeymoon?


Why did you chose Wonderland Bridal for your dream dress?

A trusted friend who was also our décor vendor recommended we visit the store. It was the best decision! The entire staff was incredible and it was actually Patty who picked out the dress I chose! She listened to the details and wanted and found the perfect dress
