Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Michael and I dated for almost 10 years before tying the knot. We were high school sweethearts, who started dating at the ages of 16 and 15. Michael got down on one knee while on a vacation at Disneyland, in front of Snow White’s Wishing Well!
What was the most amazing part of your day? Every single moment on our wedding day was magical. Wine & Roses is such a beautiful, classy venue — we were treated like royalty throughout the whole experience with them. The venue was incredible, the food was absolutely wonderful, everything went off perfectly. The most amazing part, however, had to be sharing every magical moment with my husband.
