Please describe your experience of saying “yes” to the dress!
“This was the very last dress I tried on and my stylist said ‘I know it’s not what you described you’re looking for but just give this one a chance.’ I tried it on and my friends/family got dead quiet…which is uncommon since we had some big personalities in the room. I looked at my mom and we both immediately started crying. And then I said YES to the dress!”

“I met Kyle Sanders in college. His dad is a Colonel (now retired) and when we first met, Kyle was quick to tell me his dad was the 'Colonel Sanders' …of KFC. For a while I thought I was getting free chicken the rest of my life. I even called up my mom and said 'I’m dating the heir to KFC!' Well, no surprise, I quickly realized Kyle’s family has no affiliation to the fast food chain, but I decided to keep him around anyways.”
"We went on to date for 7 years and endured lots of questions from our family during that time as to why we weren’t engaged yet. On my birthday last year, Kyle gifted me a surprise trip via a company called Pack Up and Go. How it works is you fill out a survey of interests and they plan a spontaneous 3-day getaway. You don’t know where you’re going until you open your envelope the day of the trip. Since I knew it would be a surprise location for both me and Kyle, I knew there was no way he’d be able to plan out a proposal during the trip, so going into it I was just looking for a fun, adventurous weekend.”
“The mystery spot ended up being Charleston, SC. We road tripped over (about 5 hours from where we live) and randomly picked one of the dinner suggestions Pack Up and Go recommended. Kyle texted his roommate at the time who was originally from Charleston to let him know where we were going and his roommate replied that it was near an iconic pineapple statue by the water so we figured we’d walk over there before our reservation.”
“We got up to the statue and all of a sudden Kyle got down on one knee to propose! Turns out he had been working with Pack Up and Go the whole time. And his roommate’s text was all planned. And the dinner reservation was a cover for another special place we’d eat later that evening. The whole restaurant staff was waiting for us and sat us in a corner by the window at a table where a scene from the Notebook was filmed. It was THE best day ever (besides my wedding!).”
What is your favorite thing about your husband?
“Kyle makes life light-hearted and fun! He’s always planning events to bring friends together and going the extra mile to make sure people are having a good time. Kyle’s also someone people can count on to help out when a hand is needed.”
What is your favorite moment from your wedding?
“The band was playing their final song and I looked around the dance floor at all of the people we care about, in one place, with huge smiles on their faces, and cannot think of a time I’ve ever felt happier.”
Do you have any advice to other brides?
“Throughout the engagement/wedding processes, make sure you surround yourself with people who care about you and will boost you up when you need it.”
