Q: Any tips or advice for future Mrs.?

Always get a wedding planner for the day of the wedding. Even if the venue says they provide a day of coordinator. The venue’s day of coordinator was no where to be seen the day of my wedding.

Q: How did you meet?

Dating website.


Q: Tell us about your wedding day!

Our wedding was in a lemon orchard in Santa Paula ca. We had a friend play sitar while we walked down the isle. My husband’s brother was the officiant, and we had friends who’s jazz band performed and a friend also dj’d. We had about 85 guests, and it was a magical night under the stars!


Q: How did you decide on your wedding dress

I knew my dress was the one when I stepped up on the riser at the Cocomelody LA store, they dimmed the lights and the beads on my dress shined like diamonds. I felt like a beautiful queen and I knew in that moment it was my dress. 

Q: What did you love most about your #Cocomelodydress?

I loved how flattering the dress was on me. I loved the gorgeous lace on top of the champagne silk slip. The buttons on the back of the dress were also really pretty.
