Some love stories start off with love at first sight while others express the importance of a solid foundation built on trust and friendship. Chanda and her fiancé Alejandro started their journey as friends who met through a mutual desire to help people by training to be first responders at Phillip Morris.
“Our friendship turned into a relationship years later,” she told us, while her eyes sparkled as much as the gown she was wearing.
Chanda shared her love story with us while having her dress expertly fitted. As someone who had already been taking steps to improve her health Chanda felt a new resolve to take things to the next level explaining that once she found “the dress,” she saw her and Alejandro’s love and the promise of a future together right before her eyes. The dress represented the realness and awesomeness of what they had and what they were creating. Just like she wanted to give her best and her all to Alejandro, she wanted that represented while wearing her special dress.
“I love my green smoothies and my supplements,” she explained, and even shared her secret with us about enjoying time in her personal sauna, which helped speed along the process when vigorous exercise wasn’t available to her. Whether it was her green smoothies, supplements, or her love for Alejandro, Chanda radiated a joyful and vibrant beauty as she shared her planning experiences with us.
“I had to change the venue,” she confessed, as we were adjusting her train. We then learned that Chanda felt that she had been sacrificing her dream for her perfect wedding environment in the hopes of being more accommodating to the guests. Over time though, the guest list grew so much that she had to make a change, and it turns out it was for the better.
Chanda has loved planning her wedding and growing closer to her bridal party, creating a “sisterhood” with her family and circle of girlfriends before this. Even the involvement of Alejandro has helped strengthen their relationship and has helped them get to know each other in a deeper and more meaningful way.
We asked Chanda how she felt now that she had found the perfect dress and she explained, “When you go to get married you’re thinking it’s forever and when you see it that way you want something that represents that. The joy it brings is overwhelming. I wanted to feel like a princess. I wanted it to represent how I feel about Alejandro and our future. The amount of work I see that goes into finding the perfect dress, and adjusting it to fit, just makes it that much more special.”
We are so honored to be working with Chanda and wish her a lifetime of blessings and marital bliss.
