The Perfect Dress

From the bride: I fell in love with the versatility of my dress. I had the opportunity to be romantic AND sexy; bedazzled AND understated. My friends made me try it on, even though it was out of my price range. Of course, after putting it on, there was no going back.

Soft And Subtle

I wanted the ceremony to be traditional, yet personal and the reception to have class and comfort. We wanted to be surrounded by the love of our family, friends, and each other. I wanted the colors to be soft and subtle - no drama, just beauty in its simplest form.

The Real Deal

Most importantly, we wanted our wedding to reflect US - even if that meant being a little less traditional. We went for cookies and milk (our favorite dessert) rather than cake. We wanted our photos to capture the candid moments of us, our friends and family - the real deal.
