How did he propose?

On our last day of vacation in the Dominican Republic he made me wake up super early to watch the sunrise. Then, he proposed on the beach, so it was worth it. 

Tell us about your venue and why you chose it:

Tennessee RiverPlace because the views and building are gorgeous. They also had the most to offer.

What was your favorite and least favorite part about the wedding planning process?

My favorite part about the wedding planning was all the excitement to see it come together. My least favorite was paying for everything.

Any advice for other brides planning their big day?

My advice is to take at LEAST 15 minutes after the ceremony for just you two (we went and ate in the bridal suite) to really take it in and have that moment together. The guest can wait because you’ll be with them the rest of the night. 

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

I absolutely loved every single thing about my wedding, but my favorite part was just all the love and happiness you could see and feel. This has been a ROUGH year for everyone but for this one night it was all forgotten, and it was magical.
