Real Essense of Australia Bride, Heidi and her husband, Drew, had a large family-oriented wedding that was one for the books! While the celebration might not have lasted as long into the night as they wanted, Heidi stunned throughout the evening in a strapless Essense of Australia wedding dress. Congrats to this happy couple!
From the bride: My husband and I had a very large wedding: 30 total in the wedding party, and 250 guests. You can imagine that planning this on your own as a bride can feel overwhelming, but also, end up being completely rewarding! We had guests fly in from 16 different states! We made sure to make welcome boxes for our out of town guests, and finish our wedding planning a week ahead of time to allow us to spend time with all the friends and family that traveled long distances to celebrate our love! To me, the party felt cut short. But I realized no matter what the length of time, it wouldn’t have felt long enough to celebrate with all the people who made us the people that we both have become today. We had an amazing wedding week complete with family bonding nights and a rehearsal dinner prior to the best party of our lives! We are so lucky to have so many loving, giving and supportive family and friends.
The best part of the wedding day was having our whole world: the people you love, the friends you’ve had since Kindergarten, your family – old and new – all in the same place celebrating you and your husbands love is truly unforgettable and way more perfect than I ever could have ever imagined.
