Sheldon and Houston had a romantic, intimate destination wedding in St. Barths that turned out so gorgeous and sweet! Sheldon wore the adorable Powdered Sugar shortie by Sarah Seven and paired it with a delicate sparkly sash by Untamed Petals, both from our Lovely DC store. The palms, the white sand, the beautiful smiles…every detail was just perfection and we are so happy for these two love birds!
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired the look:
After deciding that we were going to do a destination wedding venue I knew I wanted something that would be light and airy but not your typical beach gown. I wanted a look that would be practical for a ceremony on the beach but would still mirror the chic style of St. Barth. When I found the Sarah Seven gown I knew that was the exact gown I had imagined for my big day. The short cut of the dress and the structured material were an exact match for what I had envisioned.
What were the most important details to pulling of your dream wedding?
Because our wedding ceremony was literally a “party of two” including only my husband and myself I was able to really focus on the details that were most important to me. I was lucky enough to be able to spend a year and a half choosing the perfect gown, shoes, photographer, and bouquet. I was able to put all of my time and energy into perfecting these aspects of the wedding day and never had to bother with any of the not-so-fun parts of planning a wedding. I have to say that everything turned out better than I ever imagined.
What was the most memorable moment?
We did a first look before we went to the beach for the ceremony and that was by far my most cherished memory. Being able to have an intimate moment with my husband-to-be prior to our ceremony was to me far more important than a grand entrance.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
My best advice is to not sweat the miniscule details of your wedding. Big or small, every wedding planning process can be overwhelming, but as a bride you should not forget that the wedding day is about you and your husband and that your day will be perfect even if a few things do not go according to plan.
