adore_bridal-stella-yorkWhat was the style inspiration for your wedding dress?

I was looking for a romantic dress, and I thought lace would be perfect! The dress accentuated all the right parts of my body, and made me feel confident and beautiful.


What was the most special memory from your day?

There were so many special moments of the day, but the one that stood out to the most was when my husband read me his vows. The emotion behind his words was so special! I had to fight back the tears. His son was crying too, and he went over to hug him. I don’t think there was a dry eye present. It was the sweetest!!


We hear you have a great proposal story. Would you share?

My husband proposed to me at a hockey game. He had the whole thing planned out. We were chosen to participate in one the contests they have between the periods. It was called take one for the team. My husband was supposed to sing “I’m a little Teapot”, and if he did, all the people in our section would get a coupon. My husband did not know the lyrics to the song, since he is originally from Mexico, so I went with him to hold my phone with the lyrics. When it came time for him to sing, he got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I said YES! It was all captured on the jumbotron.

What was your experience with Adore?

The bridal consultant was very sweet. She listened to what I was looking for, and brought some beautiful dresses for me to try. I loved the first dress I tried on, but I was not ready to say yes yet. Something was telling me to keep searching. After trying on several dresses, she brought in my dress, and tears began to fall. I knew in that moment that this was my dress! It was perfect!!

Are there any vendors that stood out to you as top notch? Who & Why?

My wedding photographer Kristi Zobrist with Kristi Lee Photography and her assistants were fantastic! They made us all feel comfortable, and were able to capture all the special moments of my day. The photographs she took were so beautiful!

What do you admire most about your husband?

I admire the father he is to his son. They have such a great relationship. It is so sweet to see how he shows his love and affection to him. That is one of the reasons that made me fall in love with him. I know he will be an amazing father to our future children.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful story, Salena! We are honored that we got to be a part of such an amazing day!
