  • THE STORY

    In all honesty, I stumbled upon this dress by complete chance. My fiancé proposed shortly before we moved across country to North Carolina for him to attend grad school. I was feeling overwhelmed with adjusting to a new life and hadn’t had the opportunity to make it very far in the wedding planning when my parents came for a visit. They were so excited, and eager to get the ball rolling. I was glad they were so happy for us, but I was resistant to making any decisions at the time. To appease them, I made an appointment at a bridal boutique that carried some designers I admired. When the sales associate pulled the dress my initial reaction was “it’s pretty, but nothing special”, it didn’t seem like something I would have gone for but I agreed to try it on anyhow. Of course, once I put it on I instantly knew it was the one. It was just like everyone said it would be. I couldn’t stop smiling and I didn’t want to take it off. I had tried on many gorgeous dresses, but this was the first one that made me feel beautiful. My parents fell in love too, they were already refering to it as my dress. At the end of the day I did not say “yes, to the dress” because I just could not allow myself to buy it when we hadn’t even set a date yet. As we were planning our wedding I kept finding myself daydreaming about the dress. I came to realize that even if we ended up having a rustic wedding in the mountains of Colorado(where my husband is from) or a classic spring wedding at the country club in my home town, this dress would be appropriate in any setting and any style wedding we decided on for our big day. In fact, we ended up doing neither of this and had a sunset beach wedding and I am still happy with the decision. I fell in love with this dress for it’s classic, simplistic beauty that will withstand the test of time and trends to come. I knew I wouldn’t regret wearing this 20 years down the road. The cut and shape with the delicate lace and Duponi Silk make it light weight and extremely comfortable. I wanted a dress that I could dance the night away and we did just that. My most favorite element of this dress though is that it has pockets! Any dress with pockets is instantly, way cooler :)
