Tell us a little about you and your beloved:
We met in high school but never connected/started dating until being reintroduced in college. His sister and I were on the dance team together in high school and were awesome friends back then!
He proposed on a cruise in the Caribbean with all my family waiting to celebrate with us afterwards! Fabulous sunset and beautiful ring 🙂
What was the most amazing part of your day?
Easily the confetti toss after “I do.”

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now?
Don’t wait until the last minute to book a honeymoon or you’ll never go!
Also, write thank you cards as you receive gifts—don’t procrastinate!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance?
Nope! My dress was a bit poofy and hard to sit/dance in but wouldn’t trade it for the world!
