Love Story: Caitlin & Justin

We sat down with another beautiful Wonderland Bride to get her love story. Meet Caitlin and Justin, who were married on November 10th at Deer Creek Country Club.

When and how did you meet?

We met in elementary school, at after care.

How long did you date before he popped the question?

We dated two years, and were engaged for two years.

How did he propose?

We are both huge Disney fans.. We go every year for our birthdays! Just another usual trip to Disney for my birthday, he proposed under Disney’s Epcot fireworks show on the Boardwalk Pier!

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

Deer Creek Country Club was the third venue we checked out, and fell in love immediately. We felt it was unnecessary to look elsewhere, as it had everything we envisioned for our big day.

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

Burgundy and Gold, beautiful fall colors, and SO romantic!

Where did you go for your honeymoon?

We went to Hawaii for 10 days.

Why did you chose Wonderland Bridal for your dream dress?

I found Wonderland Bridal via an online search, and added it to the list of places to go to begin looking for dresses. I fell in love immediately!

Share your experience about your time with Wonderland Bridal.

Alicyn and Patti made me feel like a bride, from the moment I walked in. They truly listened to me, and got to know me before putting me in dresses. They took time to go through my current ideas and noted my insecurities so as to only show me dresses that they KNEW I would love. I made my decision, and after a slight meltdown and changed my mind, they worked with me and remained patient while I tried on other dresses. Patti and Alicyn both answered my calls throughout the year, giving me advice and reassurance when my nerves got the best of me. Despite their own busy schedules and other appointments to attend to, they made it a point to speak with me and keep me relaxed throughout the entire process.

What was the best part of your wedding day?

Coming down the aisle, on my proud Daddy’s arm, surrounded by people that truly love us, towards my best friend (and man of my dreams!) waiting for me at the end of the aisle. I’ll never forget the way I felt.. This is the exact reason we did not do a first look, I knew how important that first eye contact was for me, and for everyone else to see! Instead of the moment of him seeing me as his bride for the first time being intimate with just the two of us, we got to share that special moment with the people we love.

Any advice to future couples currently planning a wedding?

Remember to HAVE FUN! After all is said and done, your guests won’t remember the little things that may or may not have gone the way that you planned. What’s most important is that they are there for you and your spouse, on one of the biggest and most important days of your life.
