COUPLE’S WEDDING STORY:
Geoff and I started dating in college almost 12 years ago! We moved home after college, got our beautiful dog Stanley, bought a house, and started a life together. We always wanted a family and the day after my 32nd Birthday we welcomed our perfect son, Carter, into the world! We figured it was probably about time we got married!
I started looking for wedding dresses 4 months after having our son. I had no idea what I was looking for, I just knew I needed a dress! The very first dress I tried on was style #4746 by the one and only, Paloma Blanca. I was still carrying close to 40lbs of baby weight, but it didn’t matter, I felt beautiful and confident in the dress. In the coming months, I tried on a couple more dresses just for comparison but as soon as I put them on, I knew that style #4746 was where my heart was! I worked very hard to lose the baby weight, but it didn’t seem to matter what my weight was, every time I went for a fitting I felt just as confident and beautiful as the time before. There’s just something so special about this dress, it screams romance and elegance. The train is stunning, the lace work and details are flawless. I couldn’t of dreamt of a better dress to wear while marrying the love of my life!
We got married at Erin Estates on August 24th 2019. The day was everything we imagined, our entire wedding was outside, just as we wanted. We decided to do our first look in the forest where our ceremony would take place later that day – tucked away in the woods, where you could hear birds chirping and the flowing creek that ran between where we were married and where our guests sat. For the ceremony, my son and husband wore matching suits and walked hand in hand down the aisle. We were so thankful that dogs were welcome at Erin Estates, Stanley is such a special and important part of our lives so him not being included wasn’t an option! He looked so dapper in his bow tie as walked down the aisle with one of the groomsmen.
Geoff and I are still so in awe of my dress. I’ve never felt more beautiful in my life! Thank you, Paloma Blanca for helping make my husband cry (LOL) and making me feel the way I always hoped I would on my wedding day! The dress fit like a glove, it was comfortable and complimented every part of my body. The train bustled perfectly so I could dance the night away and celebrate with my new husband and our loved ones! I’m eternally grateful to you!
