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.

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.

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!

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.
