Tell us how you met and all about the proposal. Quentin and I first met in school back in 2006. We were both new to the school and really didn’t like each other or get along too well. We never paid attention to one other until our junior year of high school. We became close friends during our junior year. We became a couple our senior year in 2007 and have been together ever since.
Quentin proposal’s involved one of his friends serenading me at my favorite restaurant. I was very surprised and in tears!
What was wedding shopping like for you?
My wedding dress was a beautiful lace sweetheart mermaid dress that was bought at Bridal by Lori. Wedding shopping for me was bit stressful but I had a wonderful wedding coordinator, Brittany Bell, that kept me on track and focused on what I needed to get done.
