Sierra & Will


The Big Question

Will crafted a brilliant plan with my little sister to lure me to the Jocelyn Museum on a Saturday afternoon. My little sister met me for lunch and we went to the Andy Warhol exhibit. Since I'm not a big fan of pop art, my sister suggested we check out the impressionist gallery on the other side of the museum.
As I walked into the Storz Court separating the two sides, standing there in the empty space next to the fountain was Will. I froze in complete shock. It took him and my sister some prodding to get me to actually enter the courtyard, where on one knee, he asked me to marry him. I immediately said yes, duh! Unbeknownst to me, the entire proposal was being videotaped and photographed by his cousins in the balcony above. Afterwards, we went downtown to M's Pub where a group of our family and friends met us for celebratory prosecco!

My dress hunt started almost immediately after getting engaged. I rounded up the 'troops', aka my mom, grandma, and bridesmaids and we spent the weekend going to several places in the Omaha area. I had no luck at the first three places. It was very discouraging. In my heart I knew what I wanted, but just couldn't find it. Until I stepped foot into Ready or Knot. I explained I wanted an illusion sweetheart neckline with some lace. The first dress I tried on was Augusta Jone's 'Monica'. It was perfect. Elegant, sophisticated, yet delicate and soft.

A Perfect Day

Our wedding day was magical. Although it was August in Nebraska (typically gets 100 degrees F or hotter), it felt like a spring day outside. Family and friends flocked to Nebraska over ten states! The most special part of the day was sharing it with everyone. It truly was my favorite day. I hope I never forget the amount of love I felt that day.

Wise Words

Keep your decisions simple. Trust your gut. Inevitably, there will be something that doesn't go according to plan, but I promise you that in the midst of your special day you won't even notice!
