Austin and I met one June night after the Miami Heat had just won the national championship, we were both out celebrating and met through a mutual friend. He got my number right away and we have been together ever since.
How long did you date before he popped the question?
How did he propose?
We had just bought our first home together a few months prior.. We were having a yard day and literally did yard work all day. When we finished up Austin suggested we go grab margaritas and Mexican at one of our favorite local spots. We showered and got all ready and before we left he told me he wanted to take a selfie in front of the windmill I had given him for our 3 year anniversary which was set up in our back yard (we live on a small ranch). As we walked over there to take our picture he took my hand and got down on one knee, I couldnt believe it! He told me to look around at our beautiful home and said this was his favorite place in the whole world to be with me and couldnt imagine proposing anywhere else in the world. After I said yes I saw our family and friends cheering from the sidelines and taking pictures! We celebrated with champagne and grilled out ( we really werent going to Mexican and margaritas).
Where were you married and how did you pick the place?
Growing up I always lived on land and grew up in Jupiter Farms. When Austin and I stumbled upon The Lucky Old Sun Ranch in Jupiter, FL a few months before we were even engaged, we said the day we were engaged we would go check it out in person. We pulled up and immediately knew it was our venue! Located in Jupiter Farms across the street from where I had grew up and it being a ranch, which also had their very own windmill too, not to mention! It was the first venue and we booked it 3 days after he proposed!
What theme and/or colors have you chosen for your wedding and why?
We went with rustic ranch wedding, our colors were navy blue, and pops of yellow in sunflowers. My favorite flowers are sunflowers and the navy really made our bridal party pop.
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
With living in paradise year around in South Florida, we decided to take our honeymoon to Kalispell Montana! We stayed in a very exclusive Honeymoon suite in a private estate tucked away in the mountains overlooking flat head lake!
Why did you chose Wonderland Bridal for your dream dress?
I chose Wonderland Bridal after one of my clients ( I do Real Estate) had just purchased her dress from them, she told me she went everywhere from Jupiter to Miami looking for her dress and finally found her dream dress and amazing service at Wonderland. They were my first appointment and my last!
Share your experience about your time with Wonderland Bridal.
My mom came into town and I decided to just go look and bring my mom, mother in law, and MOH. We all went to Wonderland and found my dress on my first appointment! Allison was a dream to work with and made me feel like a real life princess and was such a pleasure to my entire party. I couldnt have had a better experience!
What was the best part of your wedding day?
The best part was the ceremony. Having all of our family and closest friends all together from near and far together and witnessing Austin and I saying I do to forever together was the most amazing part of our wedding day. We wrote our own vows, which really made our ceremony that much more personable.
Any advice to future couples currently planning a wedding?
Enjoy every minute of it! The planning, the dreaming, the events leading up to it, and most of all enjoy every second of your big day! It is truly the best day of your life!Photos by: Jack Bates Photography
