What was the best moment for you at your wedding?

Before being introduced, we took a moment to breathe and take it all in. I’ll never forget the shade of purple that’s almost impossible to replicate and the way I felt like I was floating.

What were your favourite details?

My dress made me feel so special, I received so many compliments and have never felt so confident. The venue was also so special because it was able to share my motherland with all my favorite people.

What advice would you tell other brides?

TAKE IT ALL IN! It goes by so fast, stop and breath, and feel it all.

Any standout vendors?
