Emil and I met almost nine years ago and have been together for 8 years! We opted to do a first look since this is something that was so important to us. We wanted to embrace the moment just us. The Modern Bride helped me find a dress that was perfectly me. Simple yet so elegant at the same time, and the slit was the icing on the cake. I was going to be that bride who had to have a slit in her dress, I mean it was perfect. My husband adored my dress and couldn’t stop telling me how perfect it was. I altered the straps by adding lace onto the straps. It was that perfect little touch.
