Zachary & Amanda - 3/24/18

About the Proposal


January 2, 2016

I said yes to dating my future husband on May 21, 2012 and about 2 months in to our relationship I knew that I wanted to be Zach’s wife. He was caring, sweet, goofy, and supportive of me leaving to go to school 2 1/2 hours away.

Fast forward to January 1, 2016, about 3 1/2 years in to our relationship. We had just recently brought in the New Year with our friends (all of whom happened to be engaged) and they all joked (including Zach) about how Zach was going to wait for another year or two to propose. I had no idea that everyone at the party knew his plan to propose the next day.

On January 2nd we had made plans to go to dinner with a few friends to celebrate an Aggie ring day and a birthday. It was raining so it was not unusual when my friend Lauren told them to meet her and her fiancé in this gorgeous hallway right by the restaurant to wait for our other friends Amanda and her fiancé. I was still clueless when Lauren asked to take a picture with me so that she could get me to take my jacket off to prepare for the big moment. When I saw Amanda and Devin walk in, I went to put my jacket on but when I saw my parents walk in I froze. I immediately started tearing up. Zach then pulled me over to him and got down on one knee. He spoke some of the sweetest words that I honestly cannot remember now. I do remember saying yes about 3 times and then the man I have wanted to marry for over 3 years put the most beautiful ring on my finger.

But that wasn’t the only surprise for the day. We went to dinner as planned then headed to go dancing. I needed to stop by the house and get my Aggie ring (I can’t stand not having it on my finger) then we were on our way to Conway’s, a local dance hall. When we arrived I noticed a bunch of people standing where the tables we reserved were. As we got closer I noticed that it was all of our friends and family! Zach had planned a little celebration party for us! I was over the moon the whole night!

About the Dress


Maggie Sottero  //  

Kleinfeld Consultant:


I traveled to New York with my mom and cousin in December of 2016. It had originally been a trip to have fun and try on wedding dresses at THE Kleinfeld Bridal. When we arrived, Rachel greeted us and quickly got my in to the first dress. After multiple dresses, I put on the Maggie Sottero Mercedes dress in Blush/Ivory. I immediately fell in love. It had the lace detail, little bit of sparkle, and dramatic back that I had been dreaming about for a long time. I knew this would be my dress and so did Rachel. We went to show my mom and soon Rachel slipped away to find the perfect veil. I had been dead set on no veil but I figured I was at Kleinfeld and I needed to at least try one on. She brought out a cathedral length Pnina Tornai veil that matched the dress perfectly. I was sold instantly on the ideal of a long veil floating behind me down the aisle. I received more compliments on my dress than I can count.

About the Wedding


March 24, 2018  //

Texas Old Town-Stone Hall

The wedding was a dream. When I said yes to marrying Zach back in 2016 I didn’t care how the wedding turned out. I just wanted to marry the man I had loved for 4 years. But March 24, 2018 was magical. From the flowers to the decorations (which I made myself) to the makeup and food, everything was perfect. I cried tears of joy for a solid 4 hours that day. Zach (who had not seen the dress until I walked down the aisle) even shed a few tears. It was the happiest day of our lives and I have Kleinfeld Bridal, Maggie Sottero, and Pnina Tornai to thank for playing such a huge part of it!
