Tell Us About Your Dress:
My dress was an absolute dream come true. It was the epitome of a fairytale, I truly felt like I was the princess I always imagined as a little girl. Randy Fenoli true made a stunning gown full of glitz, glam, and elegance! The only word to describe it is the word: perfect.
Why did you choose a Randy Fenoli Bridal Dress:
I went to 14 stores in Michigan. I was really trying to find the dress of dreams. SInce I was a little girl a ALWAYS wanted a big ball gown. My grandmother had an old spanish large hoop skirt that generations of my family have worn down the aisle. I had always wanted to wear it and sine my grandmother passed away shortly after I got engaged I knew I HAD to keep this tradition going. As I was trying on dresses it was difficult to find a gown that would fit over this hoop. All the gowns that would fit were simply tule on the bottom, it was not elegant, timeless, or had the sparkle I was hoping for. Feeling bummed I sat down with my mom and dad and began watching SYTTD. It was the debut of his Brandi dress, and as soon as I saw it I knew it was my gown. My mother and I packed up my grandmothers hoop and flew to Kleinfeld's NYC it was the first dress I tried on and I knew it was the one. It was absolutely perfect!

Tell Us Your Proposal Story:
Michael and I have been together since we were 14 years old. We always knew we wanted to get married so when the time came he took me on a bunch of surprise dates. He said he was going to take me on surprise dates so I never knew when he would actually propose. On evening, in late July, he picked me and up played our songs from over the years we have known each other. He drove us to Belle Isle in Detroit, MI. He parked the car and I decided I wanted to put my purse in the car, he started getting very nervous and couldn't find his keys, I realized why when I got to the car. He was SO NERVOUS he left his keys in the ignition and the car running! As I laughed we walked to the fountain and he placed us in the center, he had his sister hiding ready to capture our moment with her camera. As he leaned into me he told me, "this is it babe, it's really happening." Then he got down on one knee and proposed! It was an amazing day and we celebrated later on with family and friends!
Any Advice For Other Couples?
Don't let the challenges of life forget why you fell in love in the first place. Life it hard, and it will throw you a lot of curveballs that you don't see coming. Have faith in yourself and your partner and deal with the struggles TOGETHER. After 11 years of dating, we had our fair share of struggles, but I always knew I was never alone, I leaned on my partner and he leaned on me. Together you can get through it all.
