Molly & Corbin’s Stunning Celebration ~ 9-8-18

How and or where did you meet?
We both went to University of Arkansas and met through a mutual friend after a Razorback football win in 2011. We’ve been together ever since!

How did you get proposed to?
He proposed in the summer of 2017. Corbin and I were the first to arrive at my parent’s lake cabin for 4th of July weekend. He proposed there, just the two of us, and we spent a few hours just sitting on the porch relaxing and watching the sunset. Later my family arrived and we celebrated the whole weekend!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Our wedding was filled with so many amazing memories. I absolutely loved stepping into the church and looking at Corbin waiting for me at the end of the aisle. It had rained that morning so we decided not to do a first-look, and I am so glad. If I had to choose, my favorite memory would be during the ceremony–there were a few minutes when we sat down and were able to whisper and laugh together while looking out at the hundreds of friends and family there to love and support us. It was surreal and a feeling we will never forget.

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?

I had a wonderful experience at Normans. I went in on two separate weekends and tried on multiple dresses before I finally found the one. My mother and I were so thankful for the expertise and patience of those who helped us at Normans. We know that I would not have found the perfect dress without their guidance. I am a little indecisive, and they helped me to find two pieces to pair together, giving me both of the styles I wanted! In addition, all of my bridesmaids and my mother had great experiences selecting their dresses. I am thankful for everyone who helped us!
