Taylor + Omar

How did you meet?

We met going into our sophomore and junior years of high school (we went to the same school), then started dating two years later.

When did you know they were the one? 

I knew Omar was the one, the night he told me he loved me.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Trustworthy, hardworking, and honest.

Who proposed and how?

Omar proposed to me after 10.5 years of us dating when we went on a spontaneous ski/snowboard trip out to Colorado. He proposed on top of the mountain, at the “Endeavor” ski run at Keystone Resort with two of our best friends witnessing.

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

I fell in love with my dress at Lovely Bride NYC. The week after I got engaged, Ryder, kept coming up on my Instagram page, and I instantly fell in love and I had to try it on. I purposely asked my bridal stylist if I could try on Ryder last, as I had a feeling I would be saying YES to that dress! Sure enough, I did just that. It was beyond perfect for where I was having my wedding (on the beach), and it reminded me of coral with the beading/texture. The fit was exactly what I had envisioned too.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

The best moment from my wedding was not only my first look with my husband, but also with my bridesmaids, as none of them saw my dress!

What were your favourite details?

Aside from my dress, I would say my flowers! My florist did such an incredible job. The Bride Candy team made my wedding dreams come to life. I also loved that all of our wedding party, including the groom and myself, were all barefoot on the beach!

What advice would you tell other brides?

1. Enjoy the entire process from the start to finish. Being engaged is so fun and everything leading up to the wedding!
2. Don’t stress over the small things.
3. Before walking down the aisle, take a moment to take it all in. Look to see who all is there FOR YOU. Do this throughout the entire day/night.
4. Breathe, relax, and have the best time of your life!

Any standout vendors?

Our venue, florist, photographer/videographer, DJ, string quartet, hair and makeup artists, cake bakery, were the best ever! They made our day beyond anything we could have imagined. They were the best to work with.
