We truly enjoyed working with cute Alyson on such an important dress for a special day! We asked her to tell us all about her fun love story, how she found her dream gown, and her favorite moments of her wedding day. Enjoy!
Sean Bullock and I met on a blind date. I had seen Sean around campus and found out who he was. One of his friends caught me Facebook-stalking him and then set us up on a blind date! We dated for a couple months and then Sean waited for me while I went to Italy on an LDS mission. He had served in the same mission a few years earlier, so we both speak Italian!
We were married in the LDS San Diego Temple on June 13th, 2015.
I fell in love with my gown the first time I tried it on. My friends actually thought I was joking at first, and then I put a down payment on a different dress but couldn’t get the first one our of my mind so I came back and bought it! It made me feel like I was ME. You can’t fake how you feel in a wedding dress.
We had a little bit of a Tuscan theme for the reception but mostly the theme was just LOVE! The colors were peach and coral themed.
Advice for future brides: I would say pick your bridesmaid dresses FIRST and then base your color scheme off of those. It’s way harder to pick colors and then try and find dresses that match them perfectly. Make a thorough list of names and addresses as soon as you start receiving gifts. Update it all the time so that writing Thank You’s will be so much easier. Spend money on photography, it’s so worth it! Don’t sweat what you can’t control, and let your fiancé HELP you plan!
I had a great experience at Avenia. They were really understanding with my time frame and rushed everything with no charge so that I would have my dress on time. Nancy was really helpful with alterations and everything on the dress turned out perfectly. I loved working with the girls too, they always make you feel beautiful.
