I was in Vegas for a girls weekend and he was there for a bachelor party. We met on the dance floor of a club called Drai's at like 2 in the morning. We started chatting and he offered to buy me a drink. We hung at the club all night and then he took me and my friend to breakfast at the Paris hotel. I thought he was super attractive and a total sweetheart because he wanted to make sure my friend didnt feel awkward hanging out just the 3 of us. We exchanged info and although I instantly felt that we had something special I didnt want to get my hopes up, because hey it's Vegas.
At the time I lived in San Diego and he was in Orange County. He started calling me and I have to admit I was a bit aloof at first because I had so much going on. I called him back and planned to get together while he was down in SD. The rest is history, after that we saw eachother pretty much every weekend for the next 3 or so years. Then we moved in together and have been together for 7 years total. He's my Best Friend, makes me laugh every day, and inspires me to be the best me possible.
Got this at Mon Amie in Costa Mesa. There was a trunk show going on for Liancarlo and my MOH suggested I try it on. It was totally different than what I was looking for. When I tried it on, my girls and I started tearing up. No other dress made me have that reaction.
It has the Old Hollywood feel but also sort of modern and couture. LOVE!!
The Runner up dress was a Jim Hjelm....I love that line and really thought I wanted something lacey and with a sash. Still think it's gorgeous!
We wanted to pick a location that was a little different, had a lot of character, and was something that was memorable. FI recommended the Union Station in downtown LA. We used to take the train pretty often when I was down in SD and he would peek in the banquet room and say how cool it would be to have a party there. It's very art deco and Old Hollywood. Plus I love the meaning of the train station and how we would take the train to visit one another when we were in seperate cities.
I love, love, love purple so I had to represent with some purple heels under my dress. I got these MaxStudio heels at Nordies for half price...score!
I am thinking I might need a back up pair since I'll be on my feet for a long time and love to dance.
