What is it you loved about your GLL gown and accessories?

GLL was the one and only place I visited when wedding dress shopping. I’ve always admired the ethereal beauty of the gowns and had a feeling I would find ‘The One’ with ease at GLL. I actually only tried on 4 gowns before determining Sloane was ‘The One!’


Did you go to a GLL showroom or purchase your gown online? Tell us about this experience.

I purchased my Sloane gown and Henri veil at the LA showroom on Abbot Kinney. It was an unforgettable experience from start to finish. My sister, childhood best friend, and her mom (who is like a mom to me) joined me for my appointment. I chose Sloane based on the look on their faces when they first saw me in the gown. It was the easiest decision I ever made!

Describe your wedding day look…

Intimate, elegant, shades of white, romantic, flowers in my hair & bare feet!


How did he propose?

I have never been more surprised In my life. Andrew proposed on the beach In January 2018 with the iconic  Manhattan Beach pier as the backdrop… It was classic, romantic and everything and more! We then celebrated with friends at our favorite restaurant with lots of bubbly!


What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?

My vision was ‘Intimate elegance.’ We had a small wedding with only 15 guests and a ‘shades of white’ theme which was stunning against the dreamy Lake Tahoe backdrop. Having an intimate wedding was really important to me because I wanted to have quality time with every guest while also keeping the day centered around what mattered most…marrying Andrew! Since we chose a destination, our families spent a week in Lake Tahoe enjoying the beach, cooking family dinners, drinking good wine, etc. Having a small wedding enabled us to be present and really experience all of the joyful moments!

The funniest moments on the day were…

The wind! It really picked up as I walked down the aisle and the ceremony began. When we were about to say our vows, I invited our friends and family to huddle around us so they could hear our special words to each other…It actually was one of my favorite moments of the day!


What was the most stressful part to planning?

No one will believe me except for my best friend and family, but I actually remained so calm and relaxed throughout the entire wedding planning process. I can’t point to a time I was stressed…I literally loved every moment of the wedding planning journey and it was pretty effortless.  I’m a planner by nature, so I truly enjoyed digging into all of the details and making my vision come to life. We had a short engagement too, so I’m proud that I pulled off all of the planning In less than 6 months and everything went off without a hitch!


Any top beauty/health/fitness or wedding preparation advice that you can share…

Everything in moderation…except for yoga…I do a lot of hot yoga!

A GLL woman is to you…

Timeless, comfortable in her own skin, effortlessly beautiful inside & out!


Any last advice or words of wisdom that you can share…

Enjoy every moment of this special time in life, but don’t forget that what really matters is getting married to that amazing person at the end of the aisle! I think If you have that part right, everything else has a way of falling Into place. Also…choose a dress you can dance in!
