How did you and your husband meet?: We met in line for the bathroom at a soul dance night. The connection was instant and electric. We spent the night talking in the corner, had our first date 3 days later and were engaged a year after that.
Dress Designer: Maggie Sottero
How was your experience at Charlotte’s?: I absolutely loved working with everyone at Charlotte’s. Not only are the women there so wonderful, fun and friendly, but they really know their dresses (and their brides). I’d spent days going to all the bridal shops with my mother and tried on a ton of dresses. I’d found several I liked, but nothing that was perfect. At Charlotte’s the girls listened to what I wanted and liked and pretty quickly they brought me THE dress. Plus, they all oohed and ahed when I put it on, making me feel like a princess.
What did you like most about working with Charlotte’s?: Everyone is so cheerful, friendly and helpful. I immediately feel at home there and they all go out of their way to make the environment incredibly supportive and positive.
What did you like most about your wedding?: Eric and I had a ton of people coming from different parts of the world and different parts of our pasts. It was amazing to see our friends and family, many of whom were meeting for the first time, have so much fun together. The day was truly full of love and joy and it showed on everyone’s faces.
Who is your photographer?: Artistique Photographie – They were amazing!
