FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE WEDDING

One of my husband’s friend’s accidentally spilled a glass of red wine down the side of my dress and she was so upset. I was whisked away and everyone was making a huge fuss and getting angry at each other as I was being pulled in six different directions and had every substance with cleaning potential known to man poured onto my dress to no avail. I tore away from everyone and found the girl crying and gave her a big hug and told her to come dance with me. We had a blast. The time spent trying to get the stain out was a waste of dancing time. If you only wear the dress once, you might as well wear the heck out of it!

OTHER COOL STUFF WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

I have really big feet, so I always have difficulty finding evening shoes not to mention ones I would absolutely love and could wear all night. I decided to look into getting dancing shoes or stage shoes and stumbled upon this amazing website that makes custom Flamenco shoes to your exact-foot size and shape specifications. They were beautiful! And I can’t even begin to tell you how comfortable they were.

I bought my wedding dress at an amazing discount from a boutique outlet called Glamour Closet in Los Angeles. My dress was a little bit too big so I took it for alterations at A Stitch in Time (also in LA), and I felt so well taken care of there by the mother-daughter team, Anne and Olivia. The lovely seamstresses there made my gorgeous lace bolero to boot! I also had matching lace sewn onto a veil by a really lovely woman I found on Etsy.

Our friend and camera-man Colin Mika also helped us make a great engagement video which we used to tell our guests a little more about our love story before sharing the big day with us.
