Jacki & Luke
...and their Intimate family home ceremony & big 'ole reception party!
How did you meet?
"Through our local church in Bowie, MD"
How did he propose?
"He took me to the spot where he first realized he was in love with me, a bowling alley, it was very emotional and sweet!"
What was your favorite moment on your wedding day?
"How do you choose your favorite moment of marrying your best friend?! If I had to choose just one it would have to be watching everyone you love and adore just surrounding you on a dance floor having an absolute blast!"
Tell us about your say yes experience here at Love & Lace!
"I made my dress appointment not expecting to buy the same day but knew Love & Lace was having a trunk show with a designer I absolutely loved, Lillian West. My appointment was so personal and I felt like the only bride in the world! My stylist worked with me and my family to find the absolute perfect dress! I had about 10 picked out but the second one I tried on we all knew was "the one". My stylist still encouraged me to try on the rest "just in case" and that really helped me realize just how perfect my dress was for me!"
What advice would you give to another bride?
"Take your time and savor the little moments. Take time for yourself to breathe and pray (if you're into that sort of thing). Take time with your girls to tell them how much you appreciate each one of them, take time with your family as this is an important day for them too. But most importantly, take time with your new husband. Soak in that newly married energy and celebrate each other."
