Advice to share with brides planning now?
Don’t sweat the details. There are bound to be things that don’t go the way you’d like, but remember what all the planning is leading up to. And when you and your best friend are walking down the aisle as Mr & Mrs, none of the “craziness” will matter because your heart will be so full of happiness.
How did you and your spouse meet?
We first met at the airport when we were three years old. It was Daniels first time coming to the U.S., and my family (being good friends of his adopted parents) went to welcome him to the country. As Daniel and his mom were coming down the escalator, I turned to his older sister and told her I was going to marry him one day. We remained best friends ever since that day.
Proposal Details! How did it happen? 🙂
Daniel made the entire day very special! He first took me to one of our favorite breakfast spots. Where we decided we would go to Phipps Conservatory to see all of their Christmas decorations. After walking around and enjoying all of the flowers and lights, Daniel took me to a bridge, where a stream was flowing and we were surrounded by all the winter greenery. It was there he knelt down and asked me to marry him!! After saying yes, lots of tears, and visiting with our families, Daniel took me to a fancy dinner and then to the ballet. It remains to be one of my favorite days.
What was your favorite memory from your big day?
Lila- Wow! This is a hard one to answer… From getting ready with my Mom, and seeing my Dad for the first time that day. To watching all of our friends and family celebrating with us was very special. But I think walking down the aisle with my Dad and sharing that moment with him, and then sharing our first kiss as Mr. And Mrs. with Daniel were my favorite memories.
Daniel- My favorite memory… It’s very cliche but it really is just getting to marry Lila! The whole day was perfect from getting married, to the ceremony, to the reception afterword! But after everything that happened that day getting to have Lila as my wife was my favorite part and being able to call her my wife
