myStyle Q&A: Jerseylicious' Doria Pagnotta
Doria Pagnotta is Gatsby's hair and makeup double threat, and she's got plenty to say about what goes down in the salon! But this week, everyone was talking about her on Jerseylicious—the lucky lady got engaged to her long-time love, Vincent DeMaio. Doria filled myStyle in on Vinnie's proposal, their wedding plans and what she's most looking forward to now that baby makes three!
MEETING HER MAN: Vinnie and I met through a friend, but I was engaged to someone else at the time. But the minute I saw Vinnie, it was like love at first sight.
NAME GAME: I started calling Vinnie by the nickname "Bunny Bunson" because he resembles a little bunny to me!
PROPOSAL, TAKE TWO: Vinnie proposed in a very casual way. He actually had a whole thing planned out. He wanted to take me to the beach where we shared our first kiss, but there was a thunderstorm the day he was going to propose! Instead, he got down on one knee at home, pulled the ring out from under the bed and asked if the baby and I would marry him. I bawled my eyes out.
BABY BRIDESMAID: I'm waiting until after the baby comes to get married because I don't want to rush the wedding planning. Plus, I want to keep my focus on the baby! I'm so excited to see who she or he will look like. The baby will be in the wedding with us, and that's just too cute to words to me!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: I have, however, booked a venue in New Jersey. There's a huge room with a cool dome, and it looks so cool and romantic under the stars. I plan on having a fun-filled, exciting wedding without going too overboard, because a lot of brides waste money on senseless things. I want it to be fun but classy.
COUNT HER BLESSINGS: It's crazy how life works. I always wanted a baby and to be married, but I never thought it would all happen at once. I feel extremely blessed and very lucky.

GATSBY WELL-WISHES: It felt wonderful telling the Gatsby crew my great news. Christy gave me a lot of good advice, especially to not rush things, enjoy the baby and don't go crazy planning the wedding!
