Haley and Bryce’s High School Love Story~7-27-19

How and or where did you meet?
Our story began back in high school. We were high-school sweethearts and dated for 6 years before tying the knot!

How did you get proposed to?
Bryce purposed to me under the Christmas lights in Carthage Missouri. My friends took me there for fun, and Bryce was there waiting for me. He had all of our closest friends to celebrate our engagement with us.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Our small intimate wedding was truly a dream come true. My favorite memory is walking down the aisle and seeing Bryce’s smile. In that moment, it was just himself and I and it was perfect. I also cherish the first look that I had with Bryce and my father. Our wedding day was everything we had hoped for since we were sophomores in high-school.

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
I had a wonderful experience at Normans Bridal! I had Patty Smulski as my stylist for the day. She warmly welcomed us to the store and assured us that we were going to find my dress. She was very open to my requests and made sure to pull dresses that fit my desired description. She was so kind and made me feel beautiful in every dress I tried on. I walked out of my appointment feeling as though I had just been given the best service! I am so grateful for my amazing experience at Normans.
