Hometown: Littleton, Colorado
Passion: My passion is to be brave in life. I lost my big sister to cancer a few years ago, and ever since then I have wanted to just live beautifully. Take chances, build others up, create beauty, and enjoy the little things.
Community Involvement: I help teach sign language for a local non-profit! I teach a beginners class to people working with adults with developmental disabilities.
Personal Bridal Style: Someday when I get married, I want an effortless, bohemian style. I just want to be barefoot, have flowers in my hair, and party!
Favorite Vacation Spot: I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I haven’t ever been to a beach, and I’m dying to see the Pearl Harbor memorial. I’m a huge history nerd.
Perfect Day Off: In the morning I just want to lay in bed, drink coffee, and dream up on Pinterest. Then, meet my mom for lunch at Jose O’Shea’s, then shopping! In the evening I would do a little laundry and lounging. Finish the day with pizza, a glass of wine, and watch some Criminal Minds!
You Have To Taste This: I’m not a chef, more of a mixologist at home. I have a smoker and I like to fill a cookie tray with water and smoke it for about 4-6 hours. Then, I pour the water into ice cube trays and once it’s frozen, use the smoked ice in cocktails. It’s best with an old fashioned!
I Can’t Live Without: My family. My mom is legitimately my best friend, and my niece and nephew are my world.
Advice For Brides: Wear comfortable shoes! I wouldn’t want to be thinking about my feet hurting on my special day, and switching to flats will drop your hem and then your dress will drag on the ground! Pick a shoe you can rock all day and all night 🙂
