From The Bride... As the months became years while we were dating, we would always set time aside for each other. We occasionally took trips along the California coast, which gave us the chance to be together, without the influence of friends, families or work. We visited random cities like Carpinteria, Solvang, Palm Springs and Morro Bay, to name a few and spent days, completely enamored and wholly devoted to the other person. As we got closer and more accustomed to being together we began to incorporate our friends to our many little trips.

A trip to Zion in 2014, with the most amazing friends, would eventually solidify our relationship and lead us to ultimately become husband and wife. After 3 days of rough hiking, in one of the most beautiful places on the planet, John, my faithful boyfriend of 9 years, finally proposed and raised himself to “fiancé" status. Out-of-the-blue, or possibly due to my nagging, breadcrumb of obvious clues, he proposed to me at Zion National Park and asked willingly for my hand in marriage. I accepted without hesitation, knowing that the two of us were ultimately meant for each other.

Our first look, seeing each other for the first time on the day of the wedding felt comforting. Knowing that we were both together gave us the confidence that we could get through the day. Kids asking if we were getting married and other children complimenting my dress as we walked to the rose garden was very uplifting. I also walked down the aisle with my mom.

I definitely did not want a traditional dress, a white dress doesn't look great with my skin tone. I also didn't want a veil, but I liked the idea of it and decided to go with a cape instead. My tips for future brides is to plan ahead because tasks and projects will take longer than expected. Allocate funds for unexpected expenditures and on the day of the wedding, relax and enjoy the moment. Also, at the very least invest in a Day-Of Coordinator.
