Our whole aesthetic of the wedding was Surf Ranch meets European Garden. Drew had one request for the day—my dress be lace. I knew GLL was the perfect place! I tried on 5 gowns and kept going back to the Bonita. The train, delicate rose lace, trim, and spaghetti straps felt sexy yet timeless. I am larger chested, so the neckline was easily tailored to fit me perfectly.
Our bodies hold stories. Celebration and acceptance of my body as a female temple was important for me leading up to my wedding. I was looking for a dress that was statement-making and elegant but did not take away from my body’s natural story. I chose the Bonita dress and knew it was ‘The One’ when after putting the dress on without any jewelry or accessories, I still felt beautiful.
Before I even got engaged, I knew the Alexandra would be the dress I’d share my vows in. It embodies everything I love- a romantic lace design, high neck line, sleek silhouette with a dramatic train.
I chose the Bonita wedding dress! I had no idea I would choose this dress but when I put it on, I knew it was the one! I knew I wanted something simple, timelessand me. I never thought I would find a wedding dress I loved becauseI’ve never been drawn to traditionalwedding gowns.
