"Galia Lahav was always my favorite designer, and I knew that I would have to make it one of the stops along my search for the perfect dress. After spending a whole day trying on multiple dresses at other boutiques nothing felt quite right until I went to my last appointment that day at the Miami flagship store. Not only did everything feel so perfect from the moment I stepped foot in the store, but I also happened to be there during a trunk show and had the privilege of meeting Galia’s very own head designer, Sharon Sever. He was such a gem, and together with my amazing bridal assistant, Nicole Abecia, I tried on the Anna gown. We all immediately knew she was the one. I tried on several other dresses and it was such a fun experience, but we all could not get over how perfect the Anna gown was for me. Even more special, together with Sharon and Nicole we customized the dress to be strapless and paired it with a beautiful set of pearled gloves [for the reception]. It was the dream “say yes to the dress” day." - Bride, Steph

"My beautiful gown’s journey didn’t end there though. As we got closer to the date, I started to feel like the dress was missing something. Since I was getting married in Tulum and was not originally thinking of having a second dress, the fitted silhouette of the original Anna gown was perfect. However, my vision for my Tulum wedding was far from the traditional laid back boho weddings that are the norm there. I was envisioning a grand, elegant, and enchanting wedding in the jungle, calling my vision “Tuscany in Tulum”. With that in mind, I knew my Anna gown needed more. That’s when I went back into the Miami studio and together with my GL fairy godmother, Nicole, and the fantastic, Carol, the store seamstress, we designed the most perfect overskirt to compliment the gown. Of course, we sent Sharon pictures along the way. The day of my final fitting was a dream come true. Once everything was perfectly tailored and the overskirt put on, it was truly a vision. Not only was it timeless and elegant, but it now had that added drama that just took the gown to the next level. I ended up not wearing the gloves for the ceremony, but instead saved them to be used as part of my second look." - Bride, Steph

“Our story started around 30 years ago, when both of our fathers met and eventually became best friends as two United airline pilots. Our families have always been close friends, but life took both Michael and I in different directions throughout the years so beyond staying up-to-date on each other’s lives through our parents, we were never really in touch in our earlier years. Although, a funny story is that I always had a crush on him since I was little and I would jokingly tell my mom that he was my husband whenever I would see pictures from afar—talk about manifesting haha."

Fast forward to September 2017, Hurricane Irma was approaching South Florida while I was attending medical school in Miami, and Mike was working in Fort Lauderdale after having just recently moved back from NYC. The weather forecast called for Irma to become a category 5 hurricane and my mom was concerned that staying in my Miami high-rise apartment wouldn’t be safe. My family lives in Virginia, so as a concerned mom, she called a friend in south Florida to find me a safer place to stay. That friend was Isabelle Romero, Mike’s mom. It was at this time that Mike and I were reintroduced after 15 years of not seeing each other, and our connection was instant."

"As anticipated, Hurricane Irma caused a lot of damage and we were left without electricity for 2 weeks. Those two weeks away from the outside world allowed Mike and I to really get to know each other. We stayed up late, night after night, talking about music, life, and future goals. After we were able to get back to our normal everyday lives we continued to see each other. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months, and the next thing we knew we were in a serious relationship. Mike’s dad had passed away from lung cancer shortly before Hurricane Irma, so months later the news our relationship brought a lot of happiness to both of our families who had recently suffered a loss. This was something everyone could celebrate! Fast forward another 5 years, and Mike and I were engaged. I immediately went full steam ahead into wedding planning mode and began looking for my dream dress [at Galia Lahav].”

“Everything was just pure magic, I think I have to let the pictures do most of the talking. It was also amazing that the weather was absolutely perfect and we had a full moon. The date itself, 2/24/24 was perfect too. Danilo & Sharon, our photographers, are the absolute best. I cannot rave about them enough! We also made the best decision in hiring a content creator, Ashley of Amore Films, to capture all the behind the scenes moments. Can’t recommend her enough! Additionally, we had videographers, Tan Weddings. Cannot wait to see our wedding weekend through their lens!”
