Bride Taylor knew she didn’t want a typical, traditional wedding dress – she wanted something a little bit different. Of course, it helps when one of your best friends just happens to be the manager of a bridal boutique! For Taylor and Jacob, their wedding was a symbol of their love, both elegant and colorful. Read on to find out more about their big day!
Jacob proposed to me the night before I graduated from my Master’s program. All of my family and his family were in town for my graduation but quite a few more family members surprised me the night before for the proposal! He proposed with a ring he designed where every diamond was from the ring my dad, who passed away when I was younger, gave my mom.
Finding the perfect Martina Liana wedding dress
I wanted to sparkle! I have always loved “different” dresses and Style 1046 had everything I wanted! Lace, plenty of sparkles, cut-outs, and a long train! My best friend (and one of my maids of honor) is a store manager at White Weddings. They were having a Martina Liana trunk show and I just knew I had to go! She picked out a ton of dresses for me that we had been sending back and forth to each other but of course, in the end, it was a dress my mom found that I went with! Moms know best!
The wedding details
I really wanted an elegant theme with a pop of color. My bridesmaids and maids of honor wore Desert Rose and our flowers were white, blush, some mauve, and greenery. All accents for the day were gold. For Jake’s day of present, I got him socks with my face on him.
Besides marrying my best friend, the most special memory was my “father/daughter” dance. My dad passed away when I was younger and my mom surprised me big time. My grandfather (his father), my uncle (his brother), and all of his best friends took turns dancing with me and telling me things about him. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
