Elyse & Joshua

How did you and your partner meet?
We are high school sweethearts! We met in biology class when we were 17 and were put next to each other on the seating chart. We went on to attend college together – and the rest is history!

How did he propose?
Josh took me back to the classroom where we met and proposed right next to our old desks. About 25 of our family and friends were hiding in the classroom closet and burst out to surprise us after I said yes!

Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it:
I thought I wanted a wedding dress that was the exact replica of Kate Middleton’s, but when I put on a similar gown, I looked like my grandmother! When I tried on my dress, I absolutely loved the style and it just felt right for me, even though it wasn’t what I had originally envisioned. With the help of an amazing seamstress, I was even able to design a new illusion neckline on my dress that was reminiscent of Kate’s. I got my fairytale dress after all!

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
My style was classic elegance with a hint of gold.
