Kate and Jared
Jared and Kate got married at Willowdale Estate on 6/10/2018. I have loved Lazaro gowns since I was about 10 years old and used to buy bridal magazines to dream over. I had pinned this particular Lazaro gown all over my Pinterest board and couldn't believe that the bridal shop had it in stock. Unfortunately the sample was huge and ate me alive. It was the first dress I tried on and I wanted to love it, but it didn't work on me, so I moved on (and almost bought a different Lazaro). But, on a whim, I tried one last bridal shop that sold samples. The gown was on a form in the window and when I came around the corner I was floored. I tried it on again and this one was the right size (relatively)! It was a yes and I couldn't have been happier! I also had an AMAZING alterations seamstress who took out about 1/2 the underskirt to make the dress appropriately proportionate to my petite frame.
On the day of the wedding people were blown away. Guests were coming up to me saying things like "my husband doesn't notice wedding gowns, and when you came down the aisle he leaned over and said that was the most beautiful gown he has ever seen. (With the same sentiment echoed moments later by said husband). The compliments were endless, and included the venue staff and coordinators who see hundreds a dresses a year and were "obsessed" with my Lazaro gown.
Ultimately, the gown was unique and made me feel like a bride. I want to wear it everyday! I couldn't have made a better choice.
