More Details: My husband and I didn’t really have a planned theme. We just knew that we wanted our wedding to be as beautiful and classic as our relationship. We’ve known each other for 11 years and actually chose the venue after having our son’s birth announcement photos taken there. The wedding started a little late, but it was perfect. The sun was setting as I walked it, and according to my husband the natural light hit the dress and made it glow. Between the wedding and the reception I don’t think there was a dry eye in the garden.
My favorite moments were our first kiss and our entrance into the reception. I feel like out of everything that was said and done on our day, these two things demonstrated our love and personalities the most. Overall, everything was perfect.

On the day I found my dress, I’d initially planned to just look for ideas. There was a trunk show going on and i was just window shopping. I’d tried on a couple of dresses that day, but nothing was sticking out and I was starting to get worried. That was until Perri, the bridal consultant, brought the Essense dress to me. I immediately fell for it. It fit perfectly, the train was gorgeous and although it was far from what I had in mind, it was just what I needed for the big day!
