Laura and Johnny
Johnny and I got married at Le Parker Meridien in Manhattan. The theme for our wedding was a "sophisticated fairy tale" since the wedding was in Manhattan and we had in mind a Twilight-like wedding. We had actual Manzanita trees with twinkling lights and crystals hanging from them as centerpieces. I decided to purchase a pink dress because I have a "pink" personality. During the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, I second guessed myself about my dress decision, since the dress needed a lot of alterations. I thought that I would never be able to pull off such a dress; but I did! It fit my body and my personality like a glove.
I walked down the aisle to the violin version of "A thousand Years" by Christina Perri and we got married under an arch made with flowers and crystals, which matched the top of my dress. My bouquet also had crystals matching the dress.
I could see the surprise on the guests' faces when they saw me walk in the room and down the aisle in that dress. When the ceremony was over, my mom easily bustled the dress up and we followed our photographer to Central Park where we had pictures taken. Little girls stopped me on the street thinking I was a princess. I made their day and they made mine! Afterwards, when we arrived at the reception, my dress just perfectly matched our theme. I was somewhat worried about being able to dance with such a big/sleeved dress, but I did not stop dancing throughout the night. I danced until our wedding was over. It was more comfortable than I could ever have imagined. Did I still have blisters on my feet three weeks after the wedding from all the dancing? Yes, I did! Not once did I feel that the dress was uncomfortable. In addition, people still mention how stunning I looked in that dress, and how well it fit me. Of course, my husband looked stunning, too.
