Noella & Rich 

Where did you meet your Bride/Groom?

We met online after he noticed my MST3k tattoo and messaged me about it and Harry Potter. 

When did you get married and where?

We actually got legally married June 1st, 2012 for insurance since I was  switching jobs, and our wedding was Sunday, October 6th, 2013. Our date moved a few times because of money and issues with venues, so the date was a pretty stressful point. We held both our wedding and reception at a local park.

What dress/suit size were you when you got married? (only answer if you want to)

I was in about a size 20, but ended up having a custom dress. 

What was your experience of finding a dress/suit?

I had a very hard time finding something. Originally I had a swing dress made by an etsy seller, however, my family reacted negatively to it so it ruined the dress for me. I ended up visiting every local store I could find, but there was nothing in my size, so I wasn't able to try anything on. I generally did not like most designs to begin with, and I had many pushy salespeople try to steer me away from certain styles I was interested in. Eventually I designed my own dress and had my mother make it for me. The dress wasn't completed until the day of the wedding! 

Describe your day.

The day started off very stressful, because of the dress. But everything else fell into place pretty well as soon as things got under way. My favorite picture from the day is of the look on my husband's face as I am walking down the aisle. I made basically everything for the wedding, so it all had a very special and unique feel. Because it was on a Sunday, there wasn't a lot of drinking and it ended fairly early, which was fortunate because almost immediately after we packed everything up, the sky opened up and it started pouring rain.

Anything else you want to add.

The entire ordeal was impacted by our budget constraints, but because of needing to make everything myself, I think overall it had more of a personal touch than it might have otherwise.
