Real Weddings United States Weddings | By:cocomelody

We absolutely adored this wedding and totally wished we were one of the guests & got to experience it in person. Elizabeth & James held a beautiful wedding in Temecula, CA and it was absolutely perfect. We are crushing so hard on this sweet couple – especially when we saw Elizabeth’ stunning bridal look with that gorgeous train. And we can’t wait to share their special day with you! Congratulations Elizabeth & James!

Q:  Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?

Enjoy every minute of the wedding planning process. When your big day comes it will come and go SO quickly. The day of your wedding you will no longer be worried about any of the little details, just the fact you’re about to marry the love of your life! Take in your wedding day and enjoy every second. It will fly by. 

Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?

We were dancing around our hotel room while on vacation, listening to one of our favorite songs. He told me to close my eyes and hold out my hands. When he told me to open them he was on one knee asking me to spend the rest of his life with him.  


Q: How would you define the message ” Dare to Love”?

Dare to Love takes on another meaning for my husband and I. The strength of our relationship is tested day in and day out because of my husbands job in the US Navy. We both work extremely hard & we have spent the last 9 months of our relationship long distance & will spend the next 10 months long distance before we will finally be able to move in together as husband and wife. For us, dare to love means fully immersing yourself in your love for your significant other and fully loving them no matter how difficult the circumstances may be. Daring to love may mean going against the grain of what society believes your relationship should look like & loving your partner boldly no matter what. 

Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process? Why or why not?

Although stressful with my husband being overseas and not having him around to help or plan, I did enjoy the wedding planning process. Your wedding only comes once in your lifetime so I was excited to make this the day we both had been dreaming about. 


Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?

Walking down the aisle towards my husband and seeing the tears in his eyes when I finally held his hands at the altar.

Q: What did you love most about your #Cocomelody dress?

The back of the wedding dress!!

Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?

I love the prices and the fact that they are all custom made to fit you. My seamstress who was altering my dress said that most bridal shops who “custom fit” your dress to you don’t do a very good job and still need a lot of alterations. She was surprised at how well Cocomelody dresses held up.
