Will you marry me?: Michael proposed to me at the top of Haleakala volcano in Maui, Hawaii, at sunset. I had no idea what was planned for the day, and with the help of several friends, the moment went off seamlessly.

Details of the day: We recently purchased our first home and chose to both get ready at home. After getting hair and makeup done at the salon, the ladies were upstairs and the boys were downstairs back at the house. We took turns doing makeup on each other to complete the look.

My dress was all lace with a sheer lace back and long lace train. While all the dresses I tried on were beautiful, this one was different, understated yet elegant, and somewhat unique. With a flower in my hair and my navy shoes, it was exactly the look I had imagined.
