Your Love Story
Tell us about how and when you first met...
Matt and I first met when I attended an acting class another friend of mine was in and I saw Matt perform on stage.
When we shook hands I thought it was funny because he shook with both hands like a politician hoping for your vote. We became friends first but I always had a crush on him.
One night a group of us went to The Red Lion pub in the Silverlake neighborhood in Los Angeles. It was raining that night and I couldn't figure out if Matt was picking up the vibes I was throwing his way. Then he spilled a martini all over himself and the table and he blushed and got really embarrassed.
It was then that I fell in love with him and knew I had a shot. We dated for 4 years before he proposed and I'm glad we took it slow. I really needed to be convinced that I knew him well enough and that I could trust him. He proposed in the snowy street on New Years Eve in Beaver, Utah. No one was around and all the Christmas decorations were still up.
What was the color palette of your wedding, your decorative inspirations?
We didn't want a big wedding and we wanted it to feel laid back but classy. That is why I got a dress from Christina. The gown she made me was understated, unique and elegant.
When I was planning the wedding I imagined all sorts of perfect flower arrangements, amazing dishes, taper candles etc. But when it came down to it the bridesmaids dresses were hot pink instead of peach, the flowers were not my favorite and I was breaking out like a teenager.
But none of that mattered because we hired an incredible country band, a friend taught us line dancing, my best friend sang a song dedicated to me with the band as back up. My parents made beautiful speeches, we ate apple pie, we sat under oak trees and pine trees and Matt looked so happy. If I had it to do over the only thing I would have done differently is not try so hard to make it perfect and just trust my own taste. It is a day to honor your relationship and to share your life with the people you love.
How did you live your experience with us, how did you choose the dress?
Oh the dress was gorgeous! I got many compliments on it of course. My husband thought it was really classy which he loved.
The song that instantly reminds you of your wedding, your love?
Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton
What is the fondest memory of your wedding?
Line Dancing with my new husband and my best friends. Dancing with my dad. The end of the night getting back to our cabin looking at each other and realizing we are husband and wife.
Your advice / tip
What advice would you give to future brides?
Oh my gosh, PLEASE don't take the fun out of the experience by trying to make it (or trying to be) perfect. Splurge on what matters to you (for us it was having a good band and going on a honeymoon). I also wish I would have had someone video tape some of the day
