We asked stunning bride Maria and her lovely husband Mitch to share a little bit about their incredible true love story with us, and were so happy they did! Read below for Mitch and Maria’s top engagement and wedding tips, and advice for future Rouge couples!
What was your style inspiration for your wedding?
My style for our wedding was inspired by the fresh look of greenery and soft earthy colors.

What do you admire about your husband?
I admire that my husband is a hard worker who always goes out of his way to do things for me. He always makes me feel like the prettiest girl in the world. He always makes me laugh or smile when I’m having a bad day.
What do you admire about your wife?
I admire her big heart and her natural beauty… I also admire her nice butt (haha)
How did he propose? Were you surprised?
Mitch and I had discussed getting married and I knew it was going to happen soon, but I had no idea when or where! There is a spot we always drive through when we are cruising country roads that we both love. He put will you marry me inside of the Enochsburg coerced bridge. I had no idea it was coming, I thought we were just going out to eat!

Groom, were you nervous? Did you ask her parents for permission before proposing? If so, which was more nerve wracking, the proposal or asking the parents?
I did ask her dad for permission before proposing. To be honest, I was more nervous asking her dad than I was to ask her!
Any tips for future brides & grooms?
Don’t let all the details stress you out (even though I know they probably will). The day goes by SO SO fast and will be over before you know it. Remember the day is about you and your husband, so if you don’t get to thank every single person for coming - that’s ok! As long as you are having the time of your life and making memories with your friends, family, and husband, that’s what truly matters.
What did you love most about your experience at Rouge Bridal?
Rouge Bridal is the perfect hometown place to find all your wedding needs! Noelle is great to work with and really makes finding dresses a breeze! The store has so many great options for all styles and bodies!
What did you love about your suit rental experience at Rouge Bridal? Were you happy with the suit quality?
We loved how easy and stress free the process is. Your suit arrives in the mail and if there are any sizing issues they quickly resolve the issue! All around the easiest rental process I’ve used in the handful of weddings I have been a part of.
Who were your favorite vendors and why?
Every single one of our vendors were absolutely great to work with! We used Expression Florist for flowers and they are so easy to work with and the flowers were beautiful! Julie Kirchhoff did our photos and they are perfect! She caught all the right moments and we will have those memories forever. Jacob Nobbe captured our day through video! He is also great to work with and his video quality and attention to detail is great! Barb Waechter did our food and as always she did an amazing job! Like I said before, every single place we used really made our day perfect and stress free. We were so lucky to have them all be a part of our day!
Congratulations to Mitch & Maria, and a big thanks for sharing memories from your special day with us. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and fun together!
