Tell us how you met and all about the proposal.
Tony and I have known each other since at least 7th grade. We started dating in High School (2005 my freshman year, tony’s sophomore year) after having Biology together. In college, probably like 2009 or 2010 we planned when we wanted to get married (10 years after we started dating, but in September so September 2016) and engaged (1.5 years before wedding date so by March of 2015) on a post-it note. The fall of 2014 rolled around, finally found a ring I liked, Tony asked my parents in October, then Tony proposed in my apartment on Saturday, December 6th.


WEDDING DETAILS
Wedding Style: Describe your wedding dress. What was wedding shopping like for you?
Stressful

Shopping for my wedding dress was truly a memory that I will never forget. I went to Bridal Reflections in Long Island, NY and it was such a beautiful experience. Their service was also impeccable! During each visit, my mother in law and my sister were there for support, and they truly made me feel like a Queen. My bridal attendant (Nicole) was also the sweetest woman ever! She treated the selection process with so much support and also as if it was for her. It was a dream come true!

Culture: Did you incorporate any culture into your wedding? If yes, tell us more.
We got married in a church because my mom said I had to be married in the catholic church. We had a cookie table and a Pittsburgh-themed rehearsal dinner because we are yinzers and proud to have grown up here.

Memories: What is your best memory from your wedding?
Having everyone together.

Advice: What is the best wedding advice you can give to engaged couples?
Actually attend a traditional wedding before having your own. It would have been really helpful. Make sure you have time to breathe and that your vendors understand your social/emotional needs and personality.
