Bailey and Aaron met on a blind date. A coworker of Bailey’s was trying to set Aaron up with someone else, but then Bailey caught a glimpse of his photo!

“I told her I wanted him for myself!” she said.

Bailey suggested a group meetup, but ever the romantic – Aaron countered by suggesting a date for just the two of them. It was love at first site, and the dinner lasted 5 hours!

“I knew that night I had found the man of my dreams. It was the perfect night, and I will never forget it,” Bailey said.

And soon, they began to prep for their most unforgettable day yet: their New Orleans wedding day! As we all know, a lot of planning goes into weddings and can be a stressful time! If it’s not the cake or flowers to sort, it’s invitations and the dress, of course! If you need wedding dress inspiration, you can visit store to check out some beautiful options!
