FROM CHANTALLE: He swiped right, and I swiped right, and it was a per­fect match. We ended up chat­ting back and forth on the dat­ing app Tin­der for about a month—it was like hav­ing a pen pal. He would send me long and thought­ful mes­sages about his life, and his pas­sion for his work and travel. We re­al­ized how much we had in com­mon. The day we fi­nally met, it was like we’d come home. Our wed­ding theme was a ro­man­tic gar­den party with a sage-green, dusty­rose, cream and gold pal­ette. We adore na­ture, and I loved the idea of sim­ple, rus­tic el­e­gance with a bit of gold shim­mer, so we used those el­e­ments as in­spi­ra­tion for the decor. The end re­sult was ex­actly what I wanted but had never been able to put into words. My dress was per­fect. I first saw it in a mag­a­zine, and I fi­nally tracked it down by sheer luck at a bridal sa­lon. I put it on and im­me­di­ately loved it. The cer­e­mony was so spe­cial. Jesse’s un­cle be­came an of­fi­ciant so he could marry us, and we wrote our own vows. Walk­ing down the aisle to Jesse and see­ing his over­joyed face will be a mem­ory I’ll cher­ish for­ever. There was just so much hap­pi­ness and love in the air!
