How did you decide on your GLL gown and accessories?

Instagram! The GLL Instagram is beautifully run & the pictures of the gowns speak for themselves.  I still fantasize about wearing all the gowns when GLL pops up on my feed.  After a visit to the Los Angeles showroom, I knew the Arlo gown was for me – it felt better than any set of pyjamas I’ve ever worn!


Describe your look in three words…

Just so me.


How did he propose?

On our way to brunch, we stopped to take pictures of our pup, Faraday, in front of a great view of San Diego’s skyline. Josh insisted on taking a million photos & I wasn’t sure why.  I later learned that he was struggling to change the settings on my camera (he was trying to record a video).  Finally, (after some hangry complaints from me) he set the camera on timer & suggested one last photo – but of all three of us.  He proposed during the camera’s countdown and was able to get one absolutely perfect picture of the proposal. Faraday was smiling straight at the camera!  We picked up my parents & went to brunch afterwards – but, by then, I was way too excited to eat.

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

To enjoy it! We wanted to celebrate the beginning of our marriage in a way that was very us. Greece was the next country on our “must visit” list, so it was quickly decided that Santorini would be the setting for our vows. The day was intimate & fun – AND we got to explore a new place. It was everything we wanted it to be.


The funniest moments on the day were…

While walking around the village with our photographers (the extremely talented Chris & Ruth), we decided to try and catch some of the donkeys walking up the cliffs. We rushed, thinking we would miss the opportunity, when a line of them surprised us while we were turning the corner. The four of us were almost run over by a line of donkeys! We stayed tucked in an alley corner, laughing our butts off, while waiting for them to pass.


What was the most stressful part to planning?

We were very fortunate to have Maria of Tie the Knot Santorini as our wedding planner. She made the planning process extremely easy – even from the other side of the world. I would say the only stressful part was figuring out how to tell our family & friends that it was going to be just the two of us. They all took the news gracefully, while still making jokes about showing up anyway.


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

Drink water constantly & lift as heavy as you are able!


A GLL woman is to you…

Open-minded & in love.


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

Just have fun! Enjoy the first day of the rest of your lives together.
