Real Brides/Emily F.A.

My husband and I met in November of 2010. In January of 2011, we became pregnant with our first child. She would be welcomed into our lives in October later that year. We decided to wait until Viviana was a year old to get married because I wanted the wedding of my dreams and wanted to allow enough time to prepare for our special day. We wed on a very crisp, fall day in November 2012. The temperature was thirty degrees, a record cold day. The temperature the day before and the day after were warm, but such is life! We were married at a beautiful winery in wright city, Missouri. Our theme was rustic elegance. I had the pleasure of meeting both designers when I was at the dress shop for their trunk show. When I tried on my gown, I had "the moment." I cried and knew it was "The One!" I have never felt so beautiful, as I did on my wedding day!
