SEPTEMBER 4, 2016


SHOPPING AT MICHELLE'S I have had the best experience at Michelle's Bridal! Kiersten made my bridal experience so quick and easy because she knew exactly which dresses to pull when I described the style of dress I wanted! On the other hand, for the bridesmaid dress appointment, I had no idea what style of dress we wanted and Kiersten was extremely patient and helpful while my girls tried on a ton of dresses! She helped us find the perfect style that accented my wedding gown beautifully! I wasn't able to make it to Michael's tuxedo appointment, but I had no reservations about sending him and a groomsmen to Michelle's on their own, because I knew the lovely ladies at Michelle's would make certain they looked great for our wedding day! And they looked SO handsome (especially Michael, but I'm biased)!


THE LOOK My dress was everything I was looking for! We had been engaged for about 10 months before I started dress shopping, so I had plenty of time to decide on all the little details. I knew I wanted a lace dress with a sweetheart neckline and I had fallen in love with the idea of lace sleeves. This dress had every element I was looking for! When we slipped it on, it was basically a perfect fit, so it definitely felt like one of those "meant-to-be" moments. Then when Kiersten brought out the cathedral veil and coral bouquet (my wedding color), it really sealed the deal! In that moment I could definitely imagine my wedding day and walking down the aisle in that dress. I absolutely loved that it felt timeless and unique. I felt so beautiful when I wore it, and admittedly tried it on probably too many times before the wedding! I just loved everything about it. THE BRIDE Cori wore an Ellis Bridal lace fishtail gown with long sleeves and a deep v neckline. She completed her look with an Edward Berger cathedral veil.

THE BRIDESMAIDS The ladies wore a long Mori Lee chiffon dress with beaded lace and a satin trim.

THE GROOM The groom wore a Michael Kors slim fit suit by Black Tie Tuxedo complete with an ivory tie.

THE GROOMSMEN The guys wore a Michael Kors slim fit suit by Black Tie Tuxedo complete with a coral tie.


Our wedding day was so amazing! Everything ran so smoothly and turned out beautifully! The weather was perfect, everything ran on time (which I was worried about because I am a chronically late person), and we had a ton of fun! I love looking back at the photos and reliving the whole day!

9.4.16 WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?

My favorite part of the wedding day was definitely dancing the night away with my hubby and 300 of our closest family and friends! There was so much love in the air and we had a live band (90's Daughter) that kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Michael and I joke that for each anniversary we should throw a big party exactly like our reception because we had SO much fun!


FROM FABULOUS TO FOREVER


Advice from Mrs. Walker My advice would be to not worry about all the small details with decorations. Your guests won't care and likely won't even notice! Everyone is there to celebrate your marriage and will have fun no matter what the centerpieces look like! All you need is good food, good music, and a dance floor!
