Notes from the Bride: The dress was bought at something new boutique which was the opposite kind of dress i was looking for initially. I had been searching for a lace mermaid type of dress and i fell in love with a satin big a line frame embedded with tons of Swarovski crystals. The dress was one of a kind the designer hand carried it to the store it the first one he had made like that. I found shoes that also had Swarovski crystals that matched the dress online. Then when i first saw it I thought it was over the top but when the lady at something new boutique place it on top of my head it really complemented the dress, the tiara was also make of Swarovski crystals.I felt like a Disney princess. During the wedding I hand carried a handkerchief that had belonged to Randys great-grandmother, after the ceremony Shelly (Randys Sister), handed me Randys grandmother (Betty Magnuson) bible that she had carried in her wedding. Inside that bible i had a necklace that my biological father (which he passed away when i was 3) had given to my mother and my mother wore that gold necklace during their wedding.
How did you two meet?
Randy and I met each other in El Paso, TX I was there going to Nursing school and Randy had been stationed there TDY he had just came back from a deployment in Iraq. We actually met in a karaoke bar lol. Randy and I had instant attraction toward each other and we started dating in Texas when I graduated he moved me out here in Colorado.
Do you have any advice for future couples?
The piece of advice I would give other couple is to give yourself time to plan for the wedding, book everything ahead of time, florist, DJ, venue, Baker, etc. Plan everything with time and once the actual day arrives just enjoy it, don’t stress about the small stuff enjoy that day to its fullest because it goes by so fast! and if you spend it irritated about some small little detail not being perfect you are gonna miss the big picture!
What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Walking up to the altar being escorted by my Uncle Chencho which means the world to me. Then seeing Randy at the altar melted my heart he looked so handsome up there with his suit.
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
The night of the wedding we spent it at the Broadmoor the next day we went home, we still had family from Spain and Idaho staying for a couple of more days. So we are planning in going to a honeymoon next year. We are are not sure yet where though lol! one of the options is Spain so we can also visit my family. So i recommend to anyone if they don’t have the time to go in a honey moon right away the Broadmoor hotel, it was so elegant they had a bottle of champagne in the room waiting for us and the next day we had a breakfast brunch in their 1st floor an we took a walk around their lake afterwards.
