    How did he propose?

    It's a funny story actually. He waited until I was so convinced it wasn't happening that I was beyond surprised. After dating for over 2 years, I was getting frustrated. I just wanted it to happen already and I knew it was coming. In March/April 2014 two things happened that caused me to think it would be happening. 1. We had a trip planned for Cabo San Lucas and 2. His parents were coming in town to visit from New Jersey. Needless to say, nothing happened on either occasion. This made me so angry/frustrated because I thought why would he not want his parents to be a part of such an exciting event, right? It made me think it wasnt going to happen for months. Little did I know that the ring had already been ordered and it WOULD have happened in either of those situations had the ring been finished. The jeweler's mom passed away in the process of making the ring and she had to go to Israel for a couple of weeks, so this delayed the production of the ring. Continue reading





  • Real Vow Weddings | Picture-Perfect California Elopement Edition

    elopement

    Amelia and her husband, Chris were together for more than 11 years before getting engaged. Having attended many weddings together during that time, they realized that they just couldn't see themselves having a wedding, so when Chris proposed, they knew that they wanted to elope. She talks about the process of writing vows and the decision behind choosing to elope!

    Name: Amelia (& Chris)
    Wedding Date: Feb 8, 2015
    Location of Wedding: Healdsburg, CA

    Amelia confessed ...

    "...I am super pragmatic and also horrific at anything style-related, which is why renting a stylish dress was the perfect solution for me. Just thinking about going wedding dress shopping makes me want to curl up in the fetal position in noise-canceling headphones. Too many options, too many details that I don't care about, too much money I don't want to spend. But then I found Vow and they had super great dresses that were perfect for my low-key elopement. I felt like I was wearing something special and high quality, it went great with my heirloom jewelry, and I didn't have to break the bank or keep it in my closet forever knowing I'd never wear it again. Winning." Continue reading
