Planning a wedding, and paying for all the little details can be tough. That is why we started our wedding dress giveaway where one lucky bride would win a wedding dress of her choice from DaVinci Bridal. We are so excited to announce that Alexandra Black is our wedding dress winner! Congrats Alexandra!
Now we are going to take you along for their journey. First, she will tell us about their relationship, how they met and how he proposed! We interviewed Alexandra and here are her responses!
How did the two of you first meet?
My fiancé’s name is Chris and we met in high school. We are high school sweethearts! We were friends for a couple years before we started dating.
Tell us about the proposal.
We got engaged over the Christmas holidays. I woke up one Saturday morning and Chris was making me breakfast. I went to get the chocolate out of my advent calendar and there was a ring in the place of the chocolate! When I turned around, Chris was on one knee and he asked me to marry him. I was so surprised! I couldn’t have asked for a more special proposal!
When and where are you getting married?
We are getting married September 24, 2016. We picked that date because it is our anniversary. We will have been together for six years on the day we get married. We are getting married in Haliburton, Ontario at the Pinestone Resort Conference Centre & Golf Course.
What type of theme are you having for your wedding?
The theme we have chosen for our wedding is rustic chic and of course lots of purple because it is my favorite color!
What has been the hardest part in your wedding planning so far?
I haven’t really come across any difficulties in my wedding planning so far. My family and friends are just as excited as I am about the wedding and have been super helpful! We’ve been having a really fun time with it so far.
What type of wedding gown style do you love and are hoping to wear on your wedding day?
The wedding gown I am dreaming of is a mermaid style dress with lots of lace, an open back, and buttons all the way up the back.
What was your reaction when you first won the wedding dress giveaway?
When I first found out that I won the wedding dress, I could not believe it. It just sounded too good to be true! I am thrilled to be chosen!
