Maia + Evan
How did you meet?
In 2015, my friends and I were going to a concert. We had challenged each other to find a guy and get his cowboy hat. The first girl to wear a hat won. The search began, I spotted Evan and attempted to win him over! Reluctant to hand over his borrowed hat I lost the contest. However, we spent the rest of the night talking and went on our first date a few days later.
When did you know they were the one?
Very early I knew there was something special about him. On our first date I texted my friends “I’m in love”! After a few months together we both went back to school putting us about 300 miles apart. After our first year apart tackling long distance together, I knew we could get through anything!
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
Evan is ambitious, goofy and someone I know I can always count on.
Who proposed and how?
Evan proposed on the waterfront in Boston, Massachusetts! A spot we offered frequented when we first began dating. We enjoyed a romantic dinner and a stroll along the water when Evan got down on one knee. After I was surprised but my close family and friends gathered at a nearby bar to celebrate with us!
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I had been eyeing Made With Love for quite some time. I tried on the Georgie on two different occasions at Vows. Being the indecisive person I am I needed to explore all my options. I headed down to Head Over Heels Bridal in Cape cod for their trunk show. I tried on nearly every dress in the collection but just continued to compare them all to the Georgie. As soon as I stepped back into it I knew. Christina handed me a bouquet and attached wings to the dress. Tears began streaming down my face and I just new! The simple elegance, the low sexy back, the confidence I felt in it, it was perfect!
What was the best moment for you at the wedding?
At the end of the night after last call, after the dance floor cleared our DJ played one last song just for us. We got to share a special moment just the two of us holding each other and soaking in the amazing day we’d just had.
What advice would you tell other brides?
Cherish every minute of it, it will fly by!
