What can I say, after countless dresses I’ve used for styled shoots, seen on brides and swooned over, it’s finally my turn to say YES TO THE DRESS! I knew I had a “look” and style in mind, if you were to ask me what that was I would probably tell you this, “I want to look like a bohemian Goddess sea urchin”, laughing yet? I am. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, and that was to find the dress of my dreams for my big day. Many have asked where I’m getting married, well my friends, my fiance and I decided to ELOPE! It’s funny, I can sit here all day and design, research, work into the wee hours for my clients but for myself, I just couldn’t do it. I’m unconventional, and though I wanted both of our families around, we decided on going somewhere where we will cherish the memory, and get some amazing shots out of it. We plan to celebrate with family and close friends after we return! Lucas and I decided on Big Sur, California this August 9th!
Note: The dress below is NOT the dress I chose, but it’s a pretty one I played dress up in ;)
To find a dress, ahhh it’s 6 months out which is soon! I took a trip with my mom Maria, mother-in-law Karen and one of my best friends Ashley to my first stop One and Only Bridal boutique located in the heart of downtown Orlando. What a beautiful boutique, and the ladies/stylists were so much help, easy going and SO sweet. I tried on my 2nd dress and I knew it was on the one when I saw it, and so did the team! I can’t wait to share with you come August! It’s so me!
After my lovely experience saying “yes to the dress”, the 4 of us walked over to “The Tea Room” experience! What an adorable spot to sip tea, relax and enjoy all the tasty and savory treats.
Talk about “high tea party”, we giggled as we place the so posh hats on!
Oh hello there my darling! Such a great time, love this place and what it’s all about!
The hostess brought us lavender mini cupcakes, mini sandwiches, handmade scones and more. The selection of teas range from green teas to fruity whites, my personal favorite apricot peach. What a wonderful place to take your girlfriends, host a bridal shower, or even just because! I recommend on checking it out and let them know Andi sent you!
