Meet Our March Real Bride - Alyssa!

We are so excited to introduce our March Real Bride Alyssa and her husband David Lavigne! These two are high school sweet hearts + we can't wait for you to hear their story!

How did the two of you meet?

"We met in high school when we went bowling with mutual friends and have been together ever since."

How'd you know he was the one?

"When I couldnt imagine my life without him in it."

How did your fiancé propose? -Alyssa's Point of View-

"It was a Tuesday night in April. I had gotten home from work and he was going in to work at 11pm. We decided to make an easy supper of hotdogs on the barbecue. After supper when we were cuddling on the couch he said "I've got something for you" and he got up to go to his workshop. I was so confused and had no idea what it could be. He came back in and turned out the lights and told me to close my eyes and hold out my hands. I was really confused but I did. He placed the gift in my hands and told me to open my eyes and when I did there was a beautiful ring in the box illuminated by a little light in the top of the box. He went on to telling me about our lives and how he wants this forever and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked and excited I was in tears instantly (happy tears as at that point we had been together 9 years 10 months) I would never change it for the world. It was totally us."

How did you propose? -David's Point of View-

"We were relaxing and cuddling having a perfect night and then I proposed. She was crying and crying and finally said yes. (The crying was happy tears)."

Pop back by next week as we'll share all the juicy details on how Alyssa said Yes to the DRESS here at Once Upon A Time Weddings!
