Meet Tricia- Our New Featured Bride!
We here at Flaming Tulle have been busy scouring the area for a new featured bride and we finally found one. Meet Tricia, our new featured bride. In the next few months we'll follow her and her fiance, Mike as they pick a date, settle on an idea and do all the wedding things we all love to hear about. So join us in welcoming our newest featured bride!
Vicky: Hi Tricia! Welcome! Let's get started shall we? When and how did you meet Mike?
Tricia: We first met in 2001 when I worked at the Iron Workers union hall, and he was an apprentice, but at the time he had a girlfriend. Four years later when he and the girlfriend split, he called me. It took me about two months to finally go out with him. I did not want to be a rebound girl. I finally did agree to go out with him and the rest is history!!
Vicky: I love that story! How long did you date before you got engaged?
Tricia: It was one year and seven months.
Vicky: That is a good amount of time to get to know each other. How did he propose?
Tricia: He surprised me at work on a Friday by picking me up. He had everything I owned packed for a weekend trip that I knew nothing about. He took me to Rocky Gap Resort, had roses in our room, a couples massage and a romantic dinner. The next day, we took a paddle boat to the middle of the lake, surrounded by the most beautiful mountains and fall foliage and proposed there. It was wonderful!!!
Vicky: Wow! That is really beautiful and thoughtful. Any wedding plans set yet? Date? Ideas?
Tricia: No! Wow, I never realized how hard it would be. But we think we want to do a destination wedding in the fall.
Vicky: That's a very popular idea right now. Speaking as someone who did a destination wedding herself I can tell you it's a lot of work but completely worth it. If you could do anything with your wedding what would you do?
Tricia: If I could do anything, I would definitely do it big. I would love to have everyone we know there. But I have a HUGE family and with the cost of weddings these days, I don't know if that is going to happen. I really wanted to get married outside and have the reception in a barn, I know it sounds redneck, but I like rustic weddings.
Vicky: I think that sounds beautiful and not at all redneck! We can't wait to hear more in the coming months and learn more about the two of you! Welcome to Flaming Tulle!
