Girl meets boy! Tell us your love story!

Geoff and I met online. We had our first date and Geoff made me laugh more than anyone else in the entire world. After sharing our mutual love for dogs, ice cream and the Golden State Warriors we realized that we were meant to be. Geoff proposed after a year and a half with the help of our little dogs.

Knowing what you know now... what advice would you have for other brides planing their wedding?

Hire a wedding planner. Yes, it's an additional expense, but it is such a blessing to have someone that has experience planning one of the most important (and expensive) days of your life. Try to enjoy everything. I scoffed when people told me that since the whole planning process can be stressful and time-consuming. Just know that you're doing all of this work for a reason-to marry your best friend.
