Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?
When it’s right, you just know!
Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?
We live in the beautiful desert of Phoenix Arizona so it made for a fabulous backdrop.
Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?
This was the second wedding for both of us, we had both experienced tremendous heartache the first time but when we met each other it was just right.
Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”?
Don’t write off love just because you have been hurt before. Dare to Love to me means dare to find the love you deserve.
Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process? Why or why not?
I have planned events for a long time so this came easy to me. I manage a local business in the area and have lots of contacts and connections.
Q: What was your hubby’s reaction when he first saw you on your big day?
It was a beautiful desert scene and he and my photographer waited at the scene and I walked up to him and when he turned around you could feel the love. It made for gorgeous pictures with the natural landscape desert backdrop.
Q: What did you love most about your #CocoMelody dress (es)?
I fell in love with the design of this wedding dress when I saw it online. It was flowy, I could move in it and I felt beautiful and confident.
Q: What do you think about CocoMelody and the customer service?
To be honest, I should have been more prepared with ideas and options. I had an idea of what I wanted but was unhappy when the dress came as it did not fit up top at all and the back left me really exposed. On the models the back of the dress opening was small but on my size it was huge which mad me uncomfortable. I did have to take it to a seamstress and pay for alterations to re-do the back to give me more coverage and open the shoulders and arms up a bit. I was surprised it didn’t fit as I had taken a trip to LA and was measured in the digital box as well as by the salesperson. Overall I would recommend CocoMelody though.
