Erica couldn’t decide between a veil or a floral crown for her wedding day, so rather than choosing one over the other she decided to wear both! Her dress was also a combo – a sweetheart lace gown with a full lace sheath over the top from Love Couture Bridal.

Eric’s unique ideas for her wedding day were warmly welcomed by this Potomac Maryland bridal boutique. They believe in nurturing feminine creativity, building up confidence and enhancing the positive feelings that so naturally surround wedding ceremonies.
