How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Peter in a lecture at USC. We were friends first and dated a year later in my senior year of college. I can't remember a singular moment when I knew he was the one; I knew he was the one from all of the ways he made me feel loved, seen, and understood, and all of the big and small ways he showed up for me consistently, just because he cared.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Peter told me to keep a specific Sunday free in December of 2021; he drove me to USC's campus, and we walked to the building where we first met. He handed me a notebook, and the first page was a handwritten note about meeting me for the first time. For a few hours, he walked with me around campus and stopped at specific spots where we shared memories, and he had a handwritten note for each moment he chose. 

After this, we drove to Santa Monica where we had shared our first date and our first kiss, where we had talked on the sand until 4 am. He pulled out the notebook again during sunset and there was one more note. After reading it, I turned around and he was down on one knee. It was a perfect day, and one of my favorite days of my life.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Getting to spend time with my bridesmaids and the way they each made me feel so loved and cared for in their unique, individual ways. My matron of honor planned a phenomenal bachelorette and kept me sane through the wedding planning process, my maid of honor choreographed a reception dance and helped me stay on time with all of the planning tasks, my sister-in-law threw a gorgeous and warm bridal shower, and each of my friends supported me in different ways through it all.  I've been blessed with the BEST best friends in the world and an incredible new sister-in-law who is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
