First, some details…
This is what I call trouble in a bottle.
The dress came without a hook at the top. According to the bride, it first came in the wrong size so they had to redo the entire dress. The people at the shop helped her to try it on the second time, but then failed to mention anything about the missing hook. Fortunately, the coordinator, Lynn Schuster with Pure Planning, had some thread. Together we managed to hitch the dress together.
The bottom line for any bride is to always bring a bridesmaid, mom or someone who will be with you when you put on the wedding dress to make sure that every little bit fits together. It’s especially important to bustle the dress completely during the fitting. I can’t count the number of times that nobody knew how to bustle the dress or that some of the strings were discovered missing when it came time to do the bustle.
The Darlington House is an old Spanish Revival house that’s about 90 years old. It’s filled with architectural details and beautiful window light. As Galya was waiting to walk down the aisle, she rested in this window nook. This was one of those moments when you know you’ve got something special.
I like to joke that around Christmas you can have any flower you like, so long as it’s a Poinsettia. Venues are all overflowing with them this time of year.
I was a little tired so I stayed in my car.
