From the Bride:
The Dress: “I wore a Paloma Blanca silk trumpet ivory gown. I chose this dress because of it’s simplicity and elegance. I added a Giavan bridal sash with bugle beads and crystal appliqué to enhance the dress. The belt finished the dress perfectly and even complemented my bridesmaids gowns because the sash color was charcoal.” 

Bridesmaid Dresses: “My bridesmaids wore charcoal Pretty Maid dresses.”

The Shoes: “I paired by fabulous gown with Jimmy Choos. It was important for me to find shoes that I loved and that I could wear again.”

The Wedding: “My ‘perfect wedding’ vision was I wanted everything to be elegant. When I would close my eyes, I envisioned a room that was not over done, but perfectly done. My florist, Beautiful Blooms, did just that! My flowers were mainly white roses with crystal highlights. The only color I had in my wedding was charcoal gray.

A unique detail that I infused into my decor was the fact that we decided to have an ice cake!

One of the most memorable moments of my wedding day was my first dance. Glenn and I took dance lessons, and we were so nervous to dance in front of our guests. Once we started dancing, everything came naturally and we had so much fun! I think we really surprised our guests!”

Advice for future brides: “Keep calm! It’s your day, don’t stress! Make it enjoyable for your bridesmaids and simply have fun, laugh, and soak in this amazing day.”
