May 18, 2008
I am 5'4 and so decided to order a petite size of the dress but it ended up to still be too long even with 3 1/4" heels (imagine that). After searching online (my favorite) for some wedding dress alteration places around the area, I ended up going to Monika's Alterations in Pleasanton, CA. I must say she did an absolutely fine job with altering the hem and also put in an American bustle. My dress looked even more beautiful after the alterations. The bustle and length were perfect! The dress fit me well. I just have to get it steamed now before the wedding. I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day!
To be updated soon...

Happily Engaged 2-22-07
Sean proposed to me during our vacation trip to Las Vegas. We went to dinner at the Les Artistes Steakhouse in the Paris hotel. We had such a romantic dinner and after we were done, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so happy all I could do was cry but still was able to blurt out a "yes." It was truly a memorable evening!
The Happy Bride-To-Be:
We met at the Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant in Concord, CA. We worked together as servers and had several shifts together which enabled us to get to know one another more. We became friends immediately. At the time, Sean was still in a relationship. About six months later, his relationship ended and a few weeks later, we went on our first date. We hit it off very well and officially became a couple after a few months.
