Coleen is ready to say yes
Coleen Garcia is everything you can expect from a brideto-be: happy on the inside, radiant on the outside, and equipped with a contagious smile that lights up the entire room. We’ll tell you what she isn’t, though: the proverbial #bridezilla who’s stressing over every little detail about the big day that is to come.
It was December of 2016 when Billy Crawford, her boyfriend for four years now, put a ring on Coleen’s finger—and it was a proposal which surprised not only her but the general public as well. “Everybody outside our little world was shocked and skeptical. A lot of people were saying that I was too young. But everybody inside our world, everybody who really knows us, also knew that it was time,” she recalls, paying little to no attention to the negativity that once surrounded her engagement. “Everyone in my family already knows Billy, and they all know us as a couple. They were really happy.”
True enough, that happiness also radiates from Coleen. Barefoot and without layers of makeup on, the 24-year-old actress nailed one frame after another for Preview’s digital cover shoot this month. Our September muse is a picture of perfection. She still has approximately a year before she finally walks down the aisle, but swathed in Vania Romoff’s romantic Fall/Winter 2017 collection, she looked every bit the glowing bride who’s clearly more than ready to say “I do.”
