Joanna's Perfect Day

Joanna shares how she felt on the day of her wedding.

The bachelorette party was super fun, and as much as I was worried that Lea would have an awful time since she’s not into the club scene, she surprisingly ended up being the life of the party. Watching Lea with the strippers made my night! I couldn’t stop laughing, because I never thought Lea would be such a team player and go along with it. It made me see another side of Lea that I love.

If I had to redo the bachelorette again, I would have definitely planned it way before the wedding. It was too risky the way I planned it, and I almost missed my wedding rehearsal dinner, which could have ended up as a disaster. Luckily it didn’t and we made it thanks to Lea again... The morning of my wedding I woke up sooo happy -- the day I have been waiting over 6 years for had finally came. There was no more postponing and we finally made it a priority. I will admit planning the wedding in less than 3 months was definitely a challenge, especially since the wedding was taking place on the opposite coast at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad. LA is where my home is and where my heart will always be, so I couldn’t imagine marrying anywhere else. I was blessed to have the most amazing wedding planners, Jessica and Chris, from Sybarite Designs. They totally understood my vision. I emailed them about how I wanted my wedding to look and without a doubt they were on the same page with me and made me feel at ease. If I didn’t have them and if I didn’t have Saco from @petalsla, I have no idea how the wedding planning process would have ended up! I was stressed as it was since I wasn’t in LA to make sure everything was being handled in person, but Petals LA understood that flowers are my priority and that is how we ended up with over 20,000 of them for the wedding...
It was such a blessing that so many of my closest friends and family members were able to put their lives on hold and come from all over the world to witness my special day with Romain. Especially since the wedding took place on a Thursday, since that was the only day that was available at the Park Hyatt Aviara so last minute given that weddings are booked a year in advance. Romain and I wanted to make sure our guests were treated like royalty and were able to enjoy the amazing location, but we also wanted to thank them with customized gift bags, which we dropped off in every guest room to show them how much we appreciate and love them.

I have never felt so happy and at ease as I did the day of the wedding, because I was finally marrying the man of my dreams. I wanted everything to be perfect, and the most important thing for me is to make sure I am on time so my guests are not disrespected and they don’t have to wait on the bride to be. I don’t think I have ever danced so much in my life and I have never laughed or smiled so much as during my wedding day. Seeing everyone that I love so much there meant everything to me, and being able to see my sister and Romain get along was all that mattered, since I know it’s been a rough year for them both. The speeches from my friends, my sister, and Romain were so heartfelt and loving, and I hope it proved to all the girls in Miami that I have some amazing, true friends and family members that have been in my life for many years, who truly love me and Romain and know what kind of people we are. I am proud to be Mrs. Krupa-Zago and now we can slowly start planning the little Krupa-Zagos…

Lea's Double Standards

Adriana explains why she was so surprised by Joanna and Lea's behavior.

I would like to start by saying that I tried my best to bond with Joanna and remain friendly after attending her bachorelette party and wedding. I truly was hoping for a budding friendship. All season long, she criticized me in her weekly blogs, criticized my wedding, and even then I took the high road and didn't engage in the low blows and continued hostility she has demonstrated towards me for a while now. However, I couldn’t stay quiet any longer when she started to attack my credibility. Enough is enough! I've learned that bullies like her will not stop the attack until you stand your ground. She showed me her true colors when she stated she wanted “to rip my head off.” Such aggressive behavior like that could no longer be ignored. Joanna is always stating that she is beautiful and because of that she thinks she has license to act UGLY!

Furthermore, I couldn't remain silent while she was attacking Lisa and being so cold to her and her struggle with infertility. Claiming that Lisa is a party girl and is always drinking is not the attitude of a friend. Joanna and Lisa had been friends and even had dinner together the night before and all was well between them, until Joanna decided to turn on Lisa... I was shocked, how can a friend blatantly attack her friend with such coldness?! She should not talk about things she knows nothing about!

Another shocker was to see Lea sitting there silently and not coming to Lisa's defense... She crucified me this season and did a complete character assassination of my person for not speaking up when Ana attacked her last year, so I was very surprised to see her do the exact same thing to her new bestie... Double standards, as usual!

In conclusion, don't judge others unless you have walked a mile in their shoes!
