Rachel and Dylan’s Small and Intimate Wedding~8-17-19

How and or where did you meet?
We met in college while working at the same retail store in the same department. We were good friends almost instantly and before long we were going out on dates. The rest is history!

How did you get proposed to?
We were staying the weekend at his parents place to celebrate Christmas and he pulled me into a room with just him and popped the question. The sweet part was that the ring he proposed with was one his mom had for many years, and it was a wonderful feeling to see that I was so accepted by him and his family.
What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?

That is a tough one, but if I really had to pick I would say it was probably that we kept it mostly for ourselves. Rather than stress about hosting a large ceremony we were able to just focus on each other and how happy we were.

What vendors did you use at your wedding?
-Norman’s Bridal of Springfield, MO for the gown
-Coco Couture of Springfield, MO for dress alteration
-Golden Eagle Lodge of Grand Marias, MN for location
-North Shore Photo Co. of Duluth, MN for photos

*We basically eloped, so the vendors list is small.

What was your experience like at Normans Bridal?
You had so many styles to choose from and I felt my assistant did a fantastic job taking into consideration my likes and dislikes as well as encouraging me to try on a couple of things that I didn’t particularly want just to give me the peace of mind that I wasn’t missing something. The service was also fast too, so I wasn’t waiting long in the fitting room for the next dress, which tells me that your associates KNOW their stock.
