Gabrielle and Alexander
We had the pleasure of talking to Gabrielle about her wedding and what she loved most about marrying the man of her dreams.
What is one word that would best describe your wedding?
What is the most amazing thing about your man?
He dives into life 110% and takes on the good, the bad, and the ugly more gracefully than anybody I've ever seen. He delights in constantly learning and experiencing new things, and is always willing to go along with my antics, even when that means waving his comfort zone goodbye.
What was the most challenging part of organising a wedding?
I was working 70 hour weeks for the months leading up to our wedding, and adding wedding planning to the mix was not always easy! We also made it harder on ourselves by planning a mountaineering trip for our honeymoon, which required significant physical training. Thankfully, my husband was incredibly helpful with all the planning and took on a huge amount of the work. I couldn't have pulled it off without him!
Any funny moments?
We had the wedding at our private property in a remote area of the Pennsylvania mountains. The morning of our wedding, the septic system got backed up and started flooding the house. My husband and his groomsmen spent all morning digging a huge hole in the middle of the field we were going to have our ceremony in so they could fix the septic system and replace the pipes (it didn't help that it was raining!). Once they got everything fixed, they covered the area with the platform for the live band. By the time I arrived the sun was shining and everything looked beautiful. I had no idea what had happened until after the ceremony!
What was your aisle song?
She Moved Through the Fair
What is one scene in the wedding that will forever be in your memory?
We had our siblings walk us down the aisle and give speeches during our ceremony to give us away. My brother and I have always been incredibly close, and in many ways he was the one who protected and raised me throughout my life. He gave a beautiful speech during our ceremony that meant the world to me. It was a moment I'll never forget.
How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?
I loved it! I was so excited when I discovered Forever Soles, and immediately knew I was going to be a Forever Soles bride. I was able to feel beautiful, unique, and comfortable on my wedding day. What more can a girl ask for?
Has anything changed in your relationship with your husband now that you are a wife?
Nope, except that I think his ring is a total turn on :)
Thank you Gabrielle for sharing your beautiful wedding with us! xx
