After her wedding episode aired on UP last Thursday, Michaela (Bates) Keilen chatted with Noelle from PopCityLife.com about the day she tied the knot with Brandon and her new life as Mrs. Keilen.
Here are the highlights of the interview, but we encourage you to visit PopCityLife.com for more details.
- Michaela says that her first kiss, which she shared with Brandon at the altar, was better than she ever could have imagined. "Waiting was definitely hard, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything," shares the newlywed. "My dreams all came true that blissful moment."
- Michaela is "completely overwhelmed by the love and kindness" shown to her and Brandon by the approximately 800 guests who attended their wedding.
- While Brandon, a videographer/graphic designer for a ministry in Chicago, is away at work, Michaela spends her days studying and doing childcare. "I’m finishing up my last semester of college, while adjusting to the big city and the cold winters," she tells PopCityLife.com.
- Are there children in the Keilens' future? The newlyweds hope to have a large family, but they have not made any announcements yet. Right now, Michael says she is "embracing this thrilling adventure of marriage that God has so graciously given me."
