Real Bride: Devon

"The couple was very touched by the priest's homily...

Real Bride: Rachel

"We have technically known each other since we were kids ...

There’s a picture somewhere of us at a birthday party together around age 5 or so. But we reconnected one year via a friend, technically his distant cousin. We were part of a youth group in Memphis and we had a formal/dance and I needed a date. She suggested I ask Parker, who truly had no recollection of who I was. We ended up going to the dance together and stayed in touch with each other over the next year. Around his birthday in 2014, we decided to start dating and the rest is history.  Read More

Real Bride: Gabriella

"I had not even started my first day...

as a freshman when I met him at orientation...Our relationship really blossomed from there. We navigated many years of college fun, a few years of difficult long-distance as he graduated earlier than me and I did a semester abroad in the South of France, and finally planting our roots near where I grew up in Massachusetts Read More

Real Bride: Caitlin

"If I could relive one moment it would be ...

our first dance It was the one moment in time where all eyes were on just the two of us and it felt like we were completely alone, in love and could have stood in that moment forever. If I could pick a second moment to relive, it would be walking down the aisle with my dad, looking at him and taking a deep breath before walking down the aisle, taking it all in and looking around to see everyone there to watch me marry my best friend."Read More

Real Bride: Candace

"When finding the perfect gown ..."

I was very specific on what I wanted but found it difficult to make the final decision. The Piichi gown’s simplicity, buttons and elegance ultimately is what won my heart. "Read More

Real Bride: Andrea

"If I could relive the moment of ..."

seeing Ken for the first time (and he seeing me for the first time) when I walked down the aisle to meet him at the alter. It’s such an emotional moment in general, but for us, given everything we’ve been through earlier this year, with Ken’s accident and not knowing whether the wedding was even going to happen and whether he would survive the accident, it felt like such a “We did it, we made it” moment.."Read More

Real Bride: Monica

"If I could relive entering our wedding reception, it was ..."

such a surreal moment! We did a t-shirt toss later in the reception (we love merch and made our own for the bridal party) and standing on the chairs looking around at all our friends and family having a blast was a highlight for both of us. We took several moments throughout the night to take a step back and soak it in!."Read More

Real Bride: Hannah

"If I could relive our send off I would in a heartbeat..."

When they opened the doors to the courtyard lined with all our family and friends who were cheering for us, I actually started crying. It was such an overwhelming experience to see how many people loved us and came together from around the country to celebrate with us. It was also that feeling of  'we did it!'."Read More

Real Bride: Alex

"If I could relive one moment, it would be when we first saw each other..."

at the first look. It was so special to see each other for the first time and it felt surreal in that moment that this is finally happening. After we saw each other we felt relaxed and excited for the day."Read More

Real Bride: Cressan

"I chose the 'Sonnia' because when I looked at myself in the mirror, everything lit up like I was in a movie."

 It may sound cheesy but it looked like I was glowing. I couldn’t stop smiling and staring at the dress. I wore the dress for a long time before moving on to the next dress. Read More

Real Bride: Gabrielle

"The process of finding my dream dress ended up being much less daunting than I expected! My stunning Antonio Gual dress was the second dress I ever tried on."

My amazing bridal consultant Kristen suggested I add a custom wrap for my winter ceremony and I fell in love immediately! Every dress I tried on after it just didn’t make me feel like a bride the way my dress did! Every wedding dress out there is gorgeous honestly but what made my decision easy was that I felt beautiful in my dress and couldn’t wait to marry Sonny in it!" Read More

Real Bride: Alaina

"The hardest part about dress shopping was waiting to wear it! I surprised myself for sure - I never would have imagined I'd choose a dress with a deep-v."

I thought I wanted long sleeves and all these other visions I'd seen online...which added confusion. I'm not even sure I pulled Preston into my dressing room. But when I put her on and saw how much I popped, the decision was easy. Read More

Notes On A Wedding

" It may seem the most obvious but standing at the altar with Alex during the ceremony, would be the moment I wish to relive time and time again." 

The emotions, feelings, and even fears, of standing in front of everyone was an aspect of the wedding we discussed a lot during planning. Because we kept the guest list small, we were able to have a wedding of quality - one where we connected with everyone and also enjoyed the moments together. We had hoped it would feel less like a show with an audience, and more of an intimate moment surrounded by love.

Notes On A Wedding

" I could relive that walk down the aisle together every single day." 

We met at medical school! We first crossed paths during a student mixer the week before our classes started in the fall of 2018. Although I arrived late, he immediately caught my eye and I hurried over to sit beside him. We were both equally captivated by our conversation and for the time we spent chatting, it truly felt as if no one else was in the room. Our love story was truly something magical from the very beginning.

Notes On A Wedding

" The butterfly effect is real, and this time the universe got it exactly right."  

"In a city of 8.4 million people, I found my person completely unexpectedly in a crowded West Village bar. 

It’s crazy to think that if I had left the house 30 minutes later, or if someone hadn’t spilled that drink on me (for which Mark apologized) or if I had simply stayed in (like I really wanted to),the entire course of my life would have changed."
