My Wedding Gown from The White Dress by the Shore
I LOVE my wedding gown, it was so perfect for me and I'm so lucky and happy that I found it (or should I say it found me). I am not a fancy girl and I never really dreamed of what my wedding gown would look like--crazy right?! I was very nervous even thinking about trying on dresses, and knew I needed professional help in the dress department. This is why I decided to go to The White Dress by the Shore. I heard many rave reviews from several of my own brides and met the owner Beth at various wedding vendor parties. I knew I was going to be in good hands, my assumption was 150% correct.
At my first (and only) appointment to try on gowns I got to meet and work with Flo, LOVE FLO! What a gem! I tried on several gowns and at one point I had a beautiful gown that looked lousy on me, but said "love the ruffles." Flo stepped out of the room and came back a few minutes later with my ruffled gown. I tried it on, and knew that was this Judd Waddell gown was the one for me--along with the "sparkle belt" that I fell in love with when I tried on a previous dress minutes earlier. I also selected the veil at this point and decided that I needed to rent a fur.
Flo and Beth took care of me from the moment I stepped in the store. When my dress came in we picked out jewelry, it was awesome to be able to try it all on with my actual dress. The fittings went really well, and in the end it truly was my perfect dress.
Flo took the above right picture so my Mother could be in the photo.
Above right is the final appointment, the pick-up.
My Mom's Modern Trousseau dress was also from White Dress, as well as her beautiful earrings and pin.

Haylen and Justin were getting ready in the same hotel, which means I get to visit both prior to the ceremony, wahoo!! They got ready at the Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, Connecticut.
I can not take credit for this idea, absolutely loved these images of the guys in bed.

DJ/Entertainment by 74 Events, Gary was awesome!!
I love this little cake topper, and I don't know where it came from. I'm stumped! It looks just like Haylen's dress so I'm guessing it's custom, and the bouquet is perfect too! I wonder what the kitties names are?
