Even Southern Belle's wear short wedding dresses! Let's meet Sarah & Aaron!
Couple: Sarah and Aaron
Wedding Date & Location: April 20th, 2012 in St. Francisville, LA
"I guess the best way to describe it is 'Spring in Plantation Country'. We wanted a laid back wedding in my parents' hometown with lots of green- the weather couldn't have been better for us!"
Dress: Sarah wore the Avila Bay in ivory with a lace skirt.
Favorite moment from the wedding:
"Seeing my husband for the first time in my dress. We did a 'first look' before the wedding so we could get straight to the reception with our friends and family after the ceremony. Our photographer did an amazing job of setting this moment up for us in front of The Myrtles Plantation. Those were some of the best moments for us. Another favorite moment was during the ceremony - I put Aaron's ring on the wrong hand, realized it and quickly changed hands. He turned to our friends and family and said, 'Sorry y'all, we haven't done this before!' It was perfect."
What made you choose DC?
"I knew I wanted a different dress that would be flattering and would fit my personality. A short dress was something I was set on. When we were planning our wedding, we were living in NYC. I was very lucky to be able to go to the showroom there. My mom pointed out the Avila Bay because she loved the lace. I tried it on to humor her, thinking I wasn't a lace kind of girl. Turns out I was - Mom always knows what's best!"
Advice for future DC brides:
"Have the time of your life - If you are the kind of girl who chooses a Dolly dress, then I know you are a girl who likes to have fun! It's a day I relive with my husband often - the memories are so amazing because we made the day about us and focused on each other. We got to dance like crazy people with all of our best friends and family in one place for several hours. When is that happening again?!"
Congrats Sarah & Aaron! We love the story about the ring!
