Yes, there’s more to us than wedding planning. Read on to learn more, from Disney (Did you notice our “Aladdin” pants, to stay within our theme of “Rooftop Sunset in Zanzibar”?) to travel plans.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE FAVORITE DISNEY MOVIES?
Nira: 1. Lilo and Stitch 2. Lion King 3. Pocahontas
Jackie: Pocahontas, Up, Tangled
Karly: Little Mermaid, Frozen, Aladdin
Vanessa: Tangled takes the top spot in my heart–hands down! There are so many other great ones, but I’d say The Emperor’s New Groove and Ratatouille right now.
YOUR THOUGHTS ON “DRESSING THE PART”…
Nira: There is always a part to dress for. Make someone remember it.
Jackie: Classy and sassy.
Karly: Sexy yet sophisticated! Red lipstick, high heels, winged eyeliner, high buns, and some bling! You can’t go wrong with a pop of color!
Vanessa: I mainly dress for comfort, but I do enjoy dressing up at times. Most people say I look younger than my age, so I’ll throw on some wedges for height, just to feel older.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DATE.
Nira: One that wasn’t planned but still managed to feel so perfect.
Jackie: Going anywhere I’ve never been before… in town, out of town, uptown, downtown… Cruising in the car, jamming out to good tunes, and butterflies fluttering in your stomach is half the fun. Date nights call for: Music. Food. Beer. Wine. My perfect company embraces conversation inspired by big dreams, gratitude for the little things, curiosity, and synergy of good vibes… over some red wine and live jazz of course!
Karly: Wake up with coffee… can’t have a perfect date without that java! Followed by an adventurous hike to a waterfall in Malibu. Somewhere we can spend some time sharing our hopes and dreams. Cliff jumping off of the waterfall! I love adding something exhilarating. I am the biggest scaredy-cat but always force myself to be a daredevil to feel like I’m alive. After that we would have a romantic picnic on the beach with some good vino and sushi watching the sunset. Our dates always include playing 20 questions in the car ride, being goofy and silly as ever, laughing the whole way home. Every date with my man is a perfect date (insert cheesy lovestruck googly-eyed smile here).
Vanessa: I’d prefer to do something active or outdoors, and I’m usually up for something new. Dinner and drinks would follow, but in a place where we can easily hear each other talking!
WHERE ARE YOU TRAVELING TO THIS YEAR, AND WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT IT?
Nira: Last year was Africa. I’m keeping it a bit more mellow this year. Maybe NYC?
Jackie: Taiwan! It’ll be my first time to Asia and I’m most excited to see my mom’s excitement as she takes my sister and I to her hometown in the beautiful countryside of Taiwan and the bustling city, Taipei.
Karly: Can’t wait to go back to my hometown, Washington State, in October. My big sissy is getting married!
Vanessa: One of my best friends and I are taking a four-day vacation in Seattle and Portland at the end of this month! I’m looking forward to being in her company, since we’ve never traveled together before. And the food, obviously.
‘Til next time!
Nira, Jackie, Karly & Vanessa
