Mariah & Marco’s big day was such a dream! They had a romantic fall wedding in Aliso Viejo, CA and also included their best fur babies during the first look. So much cuteness! Read about their story below and see some of our favorite pics!

Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?
Enjoy each and every step along the way no matter how overwhelmed you may feel. Everything will come together in the end amd it will be even more perfect than you imagined!
Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?
I am in love with all things Fall, so I really wanted to bring out the shades of colors and scenery that comes with it. Although it was a bit difficult since I live in Orange County, CA where it feels like one season year round, I still feel like it came together beautifully.
Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?
We met on Tinder 5 years ago! Wow who would have thought an app would bring us together! When Marco proposed, he invited 20 of our closest friends and family and created a pathway that had a timeline of our relationship and included photos of us over the years. When I walked down that pathway at the end I was greeted by our adorable dogs Mikko and Mosby who wore suits and had a sign that said “Will you marry our Daddy?” Of course I said yes!
Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”?
When I think of Dare to Love, it means do not be afraid to take a chance since you never know what could happen. I believe that what is meant to be will find its’ way and if you dare to love then who knows, they may just be the one!
Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?
The most memorable part of my wedding day was our wedding reception with being able to see each and every person who was there to celebrate our love. I was truly able to take everything in, and live in the moment.
Q: What did you love most about your #Cocomelody dress (es)?
The attention to detail is beautiful on my wedding dress. I truly felt like a princess. My 13 foot veil that is also from Cocomelody is also so amazing!
Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?
Cocomelody is simply amazing! I received great service throughout my experience and the quality of the dress and veil were incredible. I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful I found an affordable place to purchase my dream dress from!
