Mia & Paul are a Celebrations couple, currently embarking upon the ever-so-important pre-journey down the aisle with their Celebrations Wedding Planner, Solange. We took a minute to chat with the blushing bride-to-be to share some adorable details about what sparked their meeting, how he popped the question and Mia shares some advice for newly engaged couples. Enjoy!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A COUPLE?
HOW DID YOU MEET?
We met at the gym at 5am after 2 months of me staring at him as he worked out. finally I (Mia) build up the nerves to say hello.
HOW DID HE POP THE QUESTION?
On Oct. 14th 2014 We took a walk to the pier outside his apartment in Hoboken on Hudson River, when we got to the end of the pier he handed me the box got on one knee and asked if I would be his wife and marry him. The ring is so amazing that it took me a few minutes to say yes.
HOW DID YOU FEEL?
I was WOW-ed! I couldn’t believe it was happening to me, thinking how did I get so lucky to have this wonderful man.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING PART ABOUT PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?
Everything. I mean, everything. I’m the kind of girl that attends parties, I don’t plan them.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY?
That I might hurt myself somehow. I’m pretty accident prone; like I could trip and fall over my own feet and have a giant bruise on my face. I am currently missing a fingernail, due to a fall. Thank god it’s my index finger on my right hand, and not my left ring finger!
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES?
Enjoy every moment. Don’t stress about planning. Be open minded. Trust your planner and her ideas. Most of ALL, don’t let your parents/in-laws dictate how your day should be.
