Averi + Saige

How did you meet?

We met in college, but both of us were so busy & the timing wasn’t just right. Three years later, we went on our first date (sushi) & we haven’t really been apart since!

When did you know they were the one?

Immediately! I know it’s cliche but we both had the same goals & idea of a future, so we instantly clicked.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Saige is so kind & makes it obvious that he cares for me, he’s very patient (even when it takes me hours to get ready or find the perfect outfit) & he’s handsome—duh!

Who proposed and how?

Saige proposed to me in Destin, Florida on family vacation. We were supposed to be taking “family pictures” that turned into a proposal. I was completely surprised!

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I fell in love with the “Tilly” dress because of its modern & simple, yet sparkly & fun design. It was the FIRST dress I tried on during my appointment & I didn’t even want to try on any other of the other dresses selected for me. It complimented my figure but was also very easy to move around in & I loved it at first sight! The ladies at Elle James Bridal in Ridgeland, MS were very helpful & have a wonderful bridal shop.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

When we were finally pronounced husband & wife! At that moment I knew the planning & stress of a wedding was over & I could enjoy myself & my new last name finally!

What were your favourite details?

I was absolutely in love with my dress. The simple straps & neckline complimented the beadwork so well & looked wonderful during our sunset pictures on the California coastline.

What advice would you tell other brides?

Don’t stress! I spent so much time worrying about little things leading up to our big day that I almost forgot to enjoy the planning process & the festivities of being a bride.
