Dress: Bernadette*

Favorite part of the dress: “I loved the sparkle and detail found within the dress. Nothing about it was overbearing; the collar and buttons were a neat addition. Most of all, the open back was my absolute favorite!”

Favorite wedding day moment: “My husband’s friend played the guitar for our ceremony music. At the very end of our reception, he surprised me by turning off all the music and having his friend play our song. We danced to that song for the last dance of the night.”

Advice for future brides: “Try and take a moment during all the hustle and bustle of the wedding day to just breathe. Take in the family, friends, and all the love you feel during that day, hold onto it because it’s over fast!”
