Van Cleve Bridal & Evening Wear
COUPLE’S WEDDING STORY:
James and I met at Villanova University through a mutual friend of ours in 2014. At first, I thought he was boring and he thought I was too energetic. A couple of months later our friend set us up on a blind date in 2015 and the rest is history!
One of our hobbies is scuba diving! We have traveled to many places to scuba dive beautiful reefs and shipwrecks. On March 20, 2018, in Cozumel, Mexico, James asked me to be his wife during a sunny afternoon scuba diving trip to Chankanaab Reef. Yes, the actual proposal was underwater and I gave the “okay” symbol for yes!
My favorite moment while wedding planning was choosing my dress! At first, I really wanted a lace dress. I kept trying lace after lace dress and I didn’t feel like a bride. Finally, my mom suggested trying a satin dress for the classic elegance vibe. Sure enough, my mom was right and this dress brought tears to my eyes… I finally felt like a beautiful bride!
Overall, our wedding day was spectacular! Nothing went wrong! We had a beautiful day, a beautiful ceremony at our alma mater Villanova University, a fabulous reception, and a fun first dance that we choreographed!
