Lakminie + Ross

How did you meet?

Ross and I met on bumble (yes, the dating app). He happened to be in my hometown for a big ten baseball game and I happened to be swiping.

How did you know they were the one?

I knew Ross was the one after our first date. There was something there I had never felt before. Ross knew after the 3rd!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

1. He’s kind – to literally everyone
2. He’s the hardest worker I know
3. His liability to always make me laugh

Who proposed and how? 

He did!

Ross and I were back in his hometown with my parents for a Mother’s Day weekend. It had been raining off and on but we were outside in the backyard with my dog running around when I felt a tap on my shoulder. Ross was down on one knee and all our friends and families had somehow been there to witness it.

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

Ross and I did not do a first look. I wasn’t nervous for anything but seeing him for the first time when walking down the aisle was the best part. I knew everything was going to be just fine.

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

I initially fell in love with River online browsing through the MWL site. Then I went to Rhylan Lang (Omaha, NE) and saw it hanging and knew. I tried on. 2 others – one before and after River and nothing compared.

What were your favourite details?

We had so many! My dads’ tie and Ross’s tie both had patches on the back. My dad with a picture of us and Ross has his dad who is now passed. Ross also is using his dads ring as his own.

What advice would you tell other brides?

No matter how much you stress the day will be absolutely perfect and it’ll be worth it. Also, the day goes fast so take moments to enjoy it.

Any standout vendors?
