Melissa + Alex

How did you meet?

Alex and I met at a mutual friends house.

How did you know he was the one?

After the first few dates I was overwhelmed with my feelings and knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Alex has the biggest and most kindest heart. A heart of gold, a smile and laughter that light up the room.

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

Dress shopping wasn’t my favorite until I stepped into Olivia Bowen bridal boutique. Trying on Carla.. it gave me all the feels! The 3D details are stunning. It’s so absolutely beautiful and perfect

Who proposed and how?

Alex proposed on January 12th 2018 in our just done fixer upper home. He threw me a surprise birthday party with all our friends and family and got down on one knee. Totally caught me by surprise because he’s pretty shy. I totally anticipated it happening while we were camping. It was so special!

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

It was the best day! How could I choose one. I loved being having my father walk me down the aisle, I loved seeing Alex at the alter and see me for the first time, I loved dancing with all of our loved ones

What advice would you tell other brides?

I would advise other brides to embrace the entire wedding planning process. It’s a lot but once the wedding day comes. It goes by so quickly. Take it all in.
