Couple’s Wedding Story:
Before I met Ron, on a business trip, I had been single for six years and I thought I might never find someone to love me the way I most needed. That first day it was like I was meeting an old friend. Over the following months we would see each other when our business paths crossed (because we lived in different states,) and we started closing restaurants at the end of the night– just to have a few more moments together. Finally, we stopped being just friends and Ron said I don’t want to date you, I want to marry you.” After we became engaged, it was several months before I started searching for a dress. I’m very petite, and I wanted to wear the dress–not the other way around. I wanted people to say “You look beautiful in your dress,” not just “Your dress is beautiful.” I found my dress at One Fine Day Bridal and Gown, in Fort Wayne, Indiana after my first two shopping excursions left me confused, and less than thrilled. When I walked into the salon, I knew I was on the right track. They gave me the bridal shopping experience I was looking for. Prior to my appointment I had gone on their website to browse their collection. Style 4358 caught my eye for its gorgeous simplicity and was among five other styles I had pre-selected to try out at my appointment. The Paloma Blanca was the third I tried that day, but it was my dress. In that moment I didn’t have any doubt. Every time I put it on during the alteration process I fell in love with it all over again. The alterations were immaculate and I have never felt more beautiful than I did wearing Style 4358 to marry my best friend. He said I looked “like an Angel.””
