Real Wedding: Match Made Online

December 17

Maggie Bride, Jen, is the perfect example of how a match made online can work out for the best! Jen and her now-husband met on the popular dating website, eHarmony, and are, “Just waiting for that phone call to be in a commercial!” Jen describes her wedding as elegant and romantic, two words we would also use to describe our wedding gown, Verina by Maggie Sottero. We love the way Verina’s dramatic illusion lace back and illusion sleeves complemented Jen’s soft and feminine bridal look. Jen loved the way our hand-embellished sheath gown with glimmering lace appliques “sparkled” under the light at her wedding. See Jen’s wedding day pictures and read all about Jen’s personal and “perfect” celebration below!

Finding “the dress”: “I saw the dress via a colleague who attended bridal fashion week last year and the minute I saw it I just had a feeling!”

Favorite part of the dress: “I loved the way the beading appeared to sparkle in the light!”

Favorite wedding day moment: “When my husband and I did our first look. I was more nervous for that moment then to walk down the aisle. After so much anticipation, we both felt such an overwhelming sense of joy that the day had finally arrived.”

Advice for future brides: “Don’t forget to take it all in! That was the best piece of advice I received before our wedding and I made sure to step outside of the day several times to absorb how truly perfect it all was.”

How you met: “eHarmony! We’re just waiting for that phone call to be in a commercial!”

Proposal story: “He proposed in our home. He had pictures and notes hanging from the walls with different inside jokes between the two of us and had flowers leading up our stairs to our room. He was waiting on one knee when I opened the door to our room.”

Wedding location: “The Westin in Georgetown”

Wedding theme: “My wedding had adjectives that I tried to incorporate rather than a theme. I was going for a personal, cozy, romantic, elegant feeling.”

Determining your wedding look: “I don’t really know, I suppose it was a bit like a puzzle. We chose the venue first, which had a lot of space for us add personal touches. Then I found the dress, which was so elegant and chic that I knew I wanted the wedding to mirror. I also knew from the get-go that I wanted a lot of candles and very soft lighting. It ended up being even better than I imagined. I wish I could live in the reception space!”

Your wedding in one word: “Perfection.”
