High School Sweethearts Gracie & Clayton Rosmanitz 10-21-23

How and or where did you meet?
Clayton and I met in high school. We were in FFA together all 4 years. We were friends my freshman year, but then became more my sophomore year. We made it through Covid and quarantine. We are true high school sweethearts!

How did you get proposed to?
Clayton and I took a trip to Hawaii together the summer after my graduation. It was absolutely amazing, and so beautiful there! We were there for a whole week. On the last day there, we had professional pictures taken on a secluded beach. Towards the end, he got down on one knee. I was so surprised! He cried, and I melted. We got some beautiful pictures from it!

Where did you get married?
We got married at a venue in Fordland, MO called Creedstown Ranch, and it was ANAZING! I could not rave about it enough. It was absolutely gorgeous, and completely our style. The venue owners are absolutely amazing and did everything for us.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
One of my favorite memories of many was our private first touch and vows. My husband read vows that I never could’ve imaged that he wrote, but he did. They were so sweet. I’m not a crier, but he definitely got a few tears out of me!

Describe your dress!
My dress was gorgeous! It was the perfect mix of classic and boho. There was lace and sparkles throughout, and a button back. It made me feel so beautiful!

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
Norman’s bridal has been my go to since high school with prom, and wedding dress shopping was a whole new level! My stylist pulled so many gorgeous dresses and I loved them all. She really listened to me and I felt like she really got my vision. She kept the dresses in my price range, and helped me find the dress of my dreams. She was there for me every step of the way!
