Martina Liana Bride Lauren

Real Martina Liana Bride Lauren + Andrew

Lauren and Andrew’s gorgeous, black tie wedding was one for the books. Elegant and classic, this couple chose to celebrate the start of their new life together in Charlotte, North Carolina, surrounded by friends and family. Not only did Lauren look amazing in her form-fitting Martina Liana wedding gown, but she set the bar pretty high as a fashion-forward bride. Wishing you two a lifetime of happiness! Congrats!

From the bride: After an incredible Las Vegas proposal at world renowned club Tao, we decided on North Carolina Nuptials. When the day came to say ‘I Do’ one of the most special memories was having all of our friends and family there to celebrate. Since the wedding was in Charlotte, NC -where no members of our families live – it really meant a lot to us to have all of our loved ones fly or drive in to celebrate our love in the city we now call home. At one point during our ceremony, our Pastor had Andrew and I turn and look around the room at all of our family and loved ones. This was truly a special moment and a picture that is now embedded in our minds. It is so easy to get caught up in how quickly the day moves by that you forget to soak in all of the love around you. Seeing a room full of smiles, blowing kisses and waving, before we said our vows…it was an incredible feeling!

No matter what, go with your gut planning every aspect of the wedding. I went so back and forth on whether or not to have my bridesmaids wear black dresses. Looking back and seeing the pictures, I am SO glad I did. We wanted the wedding to look classic and elegant and it turned out to be just that. Second piece of advice: Have a glass of champagne (or two!) and celebrate the entire day. Your wedding is a beautiful celebration of love, and at the end of the day, no matter what, that is THE reason for the day in the first place.
