How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?

So good! My shoes came quickly and were everything I dreamed of! They were exactly what I was envisioning, and the only ones I could find that even came close! 

Which shoes did you wear for your wedding? What was your favourite thing about your shoes?

The Honey Sandals! I loved how classic they are while having a bit of a modern/unique touch, and of course the comfort! They were the perfect height for me and so cushiony. 

How did you and your husband meet?

We met in high school, in a math class - pre-calculus to be exact. Not my strongest subject. haha

How long have you been together and how did he propose?

6 years! He proposed on a mountain top hike in Seattle, WA; we were completely alone up there in the clouds. Right after the proposal, the clouds unexpectedly cleared up and we had the most beautiful view all to ourselves! 

What is the most amazing thing about your man?

He’s incredibly patient, generous, passionate, and kind. All of that shines through him in his career as a firefighter! 


How would you describe your wedding in one word?

(So) special. 

What is your favourite memory from your wedding?

Our first look, where we exchanged our personal vows just the two of us. Lots of happy tears were shed!

Where was your wedding located? What made you choose this location?

Green gables wedding estate in San Marcos, California. Besides its general proximity to family & friends, it is so beautiful and their team is amazing. They made the day run so smoothly!

Who created your gorgeous gown?

Alyssa Kristin! I found it at Love & Lace Bridal Salon in Irvine, California. 

You're a wife now! How does it feel to finally tie the knot

Amazing! We had to do long distance for the last year and a half which was so hard, especially as we were beginning stressful careers as a firefighter and nurse. So happy to finally be together! 

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We are still on our honeymoon!  we started in Málaga & Marbella, Spain, went to the Amalfi Coast & Rome, Italy, and will be ending in Crete in Greece. 

Any advice for our brides-to-be?

Don’t sweat the small stuff; the day will be so sweet and perfect no matter what.
