Hannah & Mark’s Beautiful Market 116 Wedding~9-22-19

How and or where did you meet?
We met through Facebook! We somehow became friends through mutual friends. Mark noticed I liked Harry Potter and start messaging me about that so I would talk to him. Later I found out he doesn’t even like Harry Potter!

How did you get proposed to?
Mark took me to the botanical gardens and proposed! I kind of knew it was coming. He was so nervous… it was adorable. I was actually getting ready that morning before we went and heard a ring box snap in the next room. We talked about it after and he was like OMG I was freaking out afraid you heard that!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
After the ceremony, Mark and I stepped into the bride room to have a few minutes alone before the reception, and it was lovely. It was such a sweet moment just to be able to spend a few minutes like whoa we finally made it. We are MARRIED.

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
Amazing! Kaitlyn was the one who helped me find my dress. The whole day was perfect and I truly believe that was thanks to Kaitlyn. She went above and beyond to make sure I found what I wanted. She didn’t make us feel rushed at all and she seemed genuinely excited for me when I find my dress. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
