Real Wedding: Volney & Jason

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I knew it was THE dress the moment my stylist Whitney drew the curtain and revealed it to my mom and sister.  They had seen about seven dresses which had received the same “it’s nice…but” reaction.  When they saw the simple, fitted silhouette and the clean lines of the Nicole Miller dress, they both leapt to their feet, informing me there were “no buts” about this dress! I wanted to look elegant on my wedding day, and this dress made me feel that and more.  Its simplicity allowed me to accessorize with sparkly details and accents while still letting me shine through.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

The most important detail was having our friends and family at the wedding.  There were lots of details that helped make the day special and uniquely ours, but celebrating with our family and closest friends is what we will remember forever.

What was the most memorable moment?

Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Jason at the altar was my favorite moment of the day.  I couldn’t stop smiling and was so excited to be marrying the love of my life!  Jason kissed my hands as the ceremony started and everything in that moment was absolutely perfect.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

Enjoy every moment of your day!  Take a moment to appreciate that everyone is there to celebrate your love and commitment.  Try not to get caught up in the little things, as hard as it is, and don’t worry about every detail- everything will come together perfectly as long as you are enjoying your wedding day!

Real Wedding: Sara & Marcos

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I wanted a simple, classic look. I wanted to look like myself but at the same time feel like a bride. When I put the dress on, it just felt right. I loved the flow and relaxed feel of the dress and when I looked in the mirror, I couldn’t help but to be SO excited to get married to Marcos.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

Marcos and I were really looking forward to having a big party with all of our friends and family that we love so much. Most of Marcos’s family lives in South Florida or Puerto Rico and we were excited to show them Philly and of course, a great time! I wanted to really make the wedding our own so my mom and I added a lot of personal touches with a travel theme (Marcos and I LOVE to travel). My mom is so creative so it was amazing to work with her to make our wedding so special.

What was the most memorable moment?

When Marcos and I walked back down the aisle…back into the horticultural center and it was just the two of us. We both broke down. There were so many amazing emotions that had been bottled up and neither of us could keep them in any longer. It was one of those moments I will never forget.

Relax. Of course you want to have an amazing time and you want your guests to have an amazing time…and they will. It’s the most wonderful party to start a new life together and try to treat it just as that- the best party you’ll ever attend.
