Suzanna reached out recently about curating the perfect gifts for her favorite foxes, and we couldn't be happier to get involved! We wanted to hear the whole story, of course, from first meet, to proposal, to who these awesome ladies were! Read her story below and check out her curation :)

How did you and your fiancé meet?
Suzanna // Alex and I first met at The University of Georgia, through a mutual friend. We didn't start dating until a few years later, when we were both out of school. I was living in ATL, and Alex had just moved there to play pro baseball for the Atlanta Braves. We reconnected (s/o to Instagram), and the rest, as they say, is history. Alex has since been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and we are now LA residents.

How did he propose?
Suzanna // Picture this: the sun is sinking into the Kool-Aid blue waters of St. Barths. Jagged, jade mountains line the horizon. We're aboard a private yacht for a sunset cruise. We go to the bow to watch the sun melt into the horizon. Totally dreamy, right? In that moment, Alex hands me a love letter. As I'm reading, he drops to his knee and pops the question. Meanwhile, an undercover photographer (dressed as part of the crew) captures the whole thing. It was hands down the most magical night of my life.

Who are your bridesmaids?
Suzanna // My girl gang is made up of GFs from all different stages of my life. Half of my bridesmaids (aka bridesbabes) are childhood friends who I have been fortunate enough to stay close with over the years. We've been through everything together - heartbreaks, braces, that 7th grade white eyeliner trend *cringes* and most recently weddings, and babies (!!!). The other half of my 'babes are sorority sisters turned real life family. I spent every waking moment with these girls in college, and we've also traveled across the country together. Both my and Alex's actual sisters are in the mix as well. All of these women are my ride or dies, and I'm super stoked to have them included in our big day.

You had some of the most thoughtful and personalized bridesmaids gifts! How did you decide what to give each of your bridesmaids?
Suzanna // I knew I wanted to do something fun and unique to get my girls pumped for the festivities to come. With summer (aka rosé season) close by, I figured why not take my inspo from every girl's favorite summer beverage. Luckily, BoxFox had lots of beautiful rosé and rose gifts that fit perfectly into my vision (I mean, rosé flavored gummies!? So. Good.). I also wanted to make my girls feel pampered, so I included a candle, facemask, and bath salts. Oh, and chocolate because, well chocolate. It's (almost) like I'm sitting down to ask each one of my girls to be my bridesmaid at a spa day over an ice-cold glass of rosé.

What about your wedding are you most excited for?
Suzanna // I'm most excited to celebrate with our favorite people in the whole world all in one place - I really can't think of anything better than that. :)
