Annie was a delight to work with, we loved having her as a Simply Elegant Bride. Annie’s gown is a gorgeous Allure Bridals fit and flare style. The fitted bodice has a sweetheart neckline that is embellished with Swarovski crystals. The entire design is adorned with delicate lace appliqué on English net.

How did you and your hubby meet?
We met at Pointfest in September of 2011. I was with a group of friends. We split to head to the lawn, my friends hubby was meeting a friend from work named John and told us to go find him on the lawn. We went to the area where he said he wold generally be and I saw a really cute guy and asked if he was John. He said YES. Turns out it wasn’t the John my friend was meeting! But this guys name was really John too. My John had seat tickets but hung with me and and my friends for the rest of the concert. We went on a date 5 months later, Feb 10, 2012, and have been together ever since!

What was the most memorable part of your wedding?
The most memorable part of our wedding was when John read his vows to me. We wrote our own. He did a fabulous job, so heartfelt. He also included my daughter, Lillie, in the vows and presented her with a beautiful necklace, so sweet…there was not a dry eye in the place.

Do you have any advice to give to brides?
My advice: After the ceremony everything seems to go SO fast and it’s almost like you have tunnel vision. So take a moment and really look around and enjoy every second-it’s over in a flash!
