I am 18 years old and i fell in love with weddings about five years ago when i got engaged to the man of my dreams. even though we didn't get married i still had a passion for planning weddings. so I did a little research and I asked for many different schools to send me a free catalog so i can take a look at what they offer and I found Quality of course the best one. because I don't really have a time limit and i can work at my own pace.
I have 9 brothers and sisters and even thought I don't talk to them much i still love them to death and I have an adopted sister and she is the funniest person. she makes her self laugh.
