FROM AMANDA: Josh and I met when we were 10 years old. Our par­ents were friends, so they made plans for all the kids to play to­gether. I re­mem­ber my mom ask­ing me if I thought Josh was cute, but of course I just said, “Ew, mom! No!” Fast-for­ward a few years to 2011 when Josh fi­nally asked me to be his girl­friend af­ter years of email­ing and chat­ting on MSN. I had plans to get a pedi­cure with Josh’s sis­ter when I heard a knock at the door. When I opened it, my hand­some boyfriend—who was sup­posed to be in Cal­i­for­nia—was stand­ing there with flow­ers and a big smile on his face. I was so sur­prised to see him, but I man­aged to pop out a “yes” to his pro­posal! As soon as I saw the gold se­quined brides­maids’ dresses on­line, I knew they were what I wanted. My girls loved their dresses and I thought they looked stun­ning in them. The gold theme evolved from there with gold de­tail­ing on the sta­tionery and the dessert ta­ble. Josh loved watch­ing me walk down the aisle to­ward him. He looked so hand­some, I wanted to kiss him as soon as I got close enough. It was such a spe­cial mo­ment when we fi­nally locked lips!
