Janine and Patrick

Couple’s Wedding Story:

We initially met through friends in college at University of North Carolina-Wilmington but a chance encounter after graduation quickly grew to love. A year later Patrick proposed on Wrightsville beach using the historic landmark mailbox in the sand dunes of the North End. As a Canadian born bride and an eastern North Carolina groom we were excited to introduce and entertain our guests with a southern experience with southern touches. I found my beautiful Mikaella gown in a small boutique in Raleigh, NC called Maggi Bridal. During my first consultation, my mom immediately pulled Style 1710 off the rack and said I should try it own. As a tall bride (I’m 5’10), the sleek, fitted and classic silhouette was perfect for my body type. It was love at first sight! When I found out that Mikaella was Canadian just as I am, I knew it was meant to be. Patrick and I got married October 17th, in Wilmington, NC surrounded by our loving family and friends. It was a gorgeous 70 degree day, and went off flawlessly. Thank you Mikaella for making me feel radiant on our special day!
