Married in Martina Liana
When it was time for Bailee to shop for a wedding dress, the most important thing was finding a gown that made her feel comfortable and confident. She scheduled a bridal appointment at The Bridal Collection in search for “the one”! After meeting her bridal stylist, and chatting about the big day, she headed for the showroom. Bailee and her stylist scanned through the sea of white gowns in search for the perfect dress. Once they had selected a few that caught Bailee’s eye, it was time to try them on! Among the handful of dresses, with various silhouettes and styles, the second dress stood out. It was love at first sight! Bailee felt comfortable and sexy in Martina Liana style #875. The intricate beading had an old-Hollywood feel while the sparkling high neckline made a statement. No other dress even came close, so she said “Yes!” to the dress! It was the perfect choice for her Villa Parker wedding.
“What was really great about my one and only dress shopping experience (at TBC) was I went in with absolutely no expectations and honestly not thinking I would get my wedding dress. TBC hit it out of the park! It was such a happy experience and everyone from the store who saw me were so nice and complementary.” – Bailee
First Look Feels
While they chose to recite traditional vows at their ceremony, Bailee and Andrew wanted to share a special moment before the chaos of their Villa Parker wedding day began. They wrote personal vows to one another and exchanged them during their first look before the ceremony. Bailee says it was so special to have a few stolen moments together to make future promises to one another and reminisce about how they first fell in love.
A Special Gift
Often times, a close family member is unable to attend a wedding due to health issues. This can be very disappointing to the whole family. We love all the ways brides and grooms include the missing loved one with personal reminders. Bailee wore a beautiful mink shawl, a gift from her Grandmother, in some of the photos, as a sweet way to acknowledge their closeness even though her grandmother couldn’t attend.
Advice for Brides
“Remember that all that matters on your wedding day is that you are celebrating your love with your future hubby! Nothing else matters. It really flies by in a flash. Focus on the laughter and love that fills the day and you won’t feel any stress or pressure. I told myself the day before my wedding that I had done all I could do to prepare, and what was going to happen would happen. On my wedding day, I just took it all in and focused on the joy of the day. It was so perfect, and I wouldn’t change a single thing about the day. I would relive it over and over again if I could!” – Bailee
