Between the rustic, vintage vibes and the overarching “travel” theme, Tiffany and Lester’s big day in Garden Grover, California was truly a sight to behold! Chic and neutral pops of champagne, cream, ivory and peach decorated the venue, but all eyes were on the bride and her stunning Essense of Australia mermaid dress! Read on to see the details:
Essense of Australia Style #D2365
These two love birds had been together for a while before Lester popped the question.
“I was so angry at Lester,” Tiffany recalls. “I remember thinking to myself that he was going to wait forever to do it. My girlfriend invited me to a couple’s dinner for her husband’s new promotion and I told her that it would have been a perfect night (to get engaged) since everyone was there. After dinner, we decided to go out on the terrace to take photos of the amazing city lights. Lester, as usual, said he had to go to the bathroom. I took some photos with the girls and when I turned around, I couldn’t believe my eyes. There was Lester, holding a dozen roses, “yes” and “no?” cupcakes, and he was getting down on one knee. I was in complete shock and all the screaming drowned out as he started talking. He told me that he knew I had been waiting and he loved me. At that moment, I wasn’t so mad anymore and so happy that we finally made it to this moment.”
Their picture-perfect proposal was the beginning of a dream wedding! Tiffany knew saying “yes!” to the dress was next on her to-do list.
Finding Tiffany’s Dream Essense of Australia Wedding Dress
“I feel like I have two different styles,” she said. “I am very down to earth and boho loving, but I also love to get dressed up and feel like a princess. I went to 4 different bridal shops and tried on a lot of dresses, but when thinking of my day, I felt most beautiful in this Essense dress. No matter what other style I tried on, I felt the best in Style D2365 and knew that was the only way I wanted to look on my wedding day.
The Big Day Details
“We had been struggling with the idea of including our pups in the wedding because of the craziness of the day. Luckily, our little brother was able to bring them to the hotel for a moment with us and we have some beautiful family pictures with our little flower girl and best man!” The rustic, vintage vibe was mixed with the couple’s love of traveling; “We decided to incorporate some travel details like a globe guestbook, map cufflinks, and our photos were from our trips around the world.”
Cheers to the Obispos! We wish you a life as beautiful as your wedding day!
