THE LOVE STORY
We knew we would love Maggie and Justin's love story when we asked Maggie about it, and she replied, "Just think Jim and Pam (from the show, The Office)." Maggie and Justin met during a grueling interview week where Maggie was a panelist and Justin was one of the final candidates. Not only was he "funny, smart, and cute" (says Maggie), he was right for the job. As time progressed, the two started working closely together on projects and the rest is history.
Being the planner of the two, Maggie can usually tell when something is out of the ordinary. This makes it nearly impossible for her to be surprised. Justin had a different plan. The two were long distance after Justin accepted a job in Houston. After weeks of steering Maggie in the wrong direction by planning several "special" trips, Justin popped the question while the two were lounging by the pool. To make celebration even more special, it was the same weekend Maggie got a job offer in Houston. They would begin their engagement in a new city!
Maggie stopped by a few different bridal salons before her last stop at Mia Bridal Couture. She was on a mission to find something perfect for her Seaside wedding.
"I had this exact gown pictured in my mind the entire time, but just never quite landed on it until our last stop at Mia."
The last gown Maggie put on was a silk taffeta, a-line Amsale gown with a lace bodice on dainty straps. She knew it was the one when it made her emotional and tear up. Also, the pockets were a plus!
