Lily & Jordan
Gown details: Allure Tulle Ball Gown with satin top. Strapless, sweetheart neckline paired with a Maggie Sottero Beaded and Laced Bolero
Our bubbly bride Lily and her partner for life, Jordan, said “I Do” at Portsmouth Harbor Events in New Hampshire on September 2, 2016. The late summer picturesque wedding was photographed by Amara Photo on the contemporary Northeast seacoast.
Popping the Question: “I was supposed to work over the weekend and Jordan was all the sudden very upset about this. He is the most laid-back person, so this surprised me. I ended up getting my shift covered and he had a whole day planned (a little suspicious). We went to the farmer's market then walked up to Old Town Hill in Newbury, MA. He proposed at the very top under a beautiful tree in the fall and it was the perfect time... Even though we had already been dating for 13 years! Jordan has friends and family waiting at his parent's house and we had a surprise engagement celebration that night.”
How romantic?! Save the fireworks and airplane messages for TV, we love a spontaneous, sweet, and simple proposal shared with family and friends.
Finding the Gown: I've browsed Pure Bliss' Bridal Collection for years. I found out that the bolero I was interested in was being discontinued, thus prompting me to go dress shopping 2 years before the wedding. Our consultant, Maxine could not have been more helpful. She was decisive, yet did not impose her opinion to sway mine. I ended up getting the first dress I tried on. Fast forward a few appointments (accessories, YAY) Jeanine has the patience of saint. I had a very specific veil look in mind and ended up getting THREE veils to wear. I also had all my alterations done and everything was perfect. Jeanine is a dream to work with... I also brought all of my 9 bridesmaids here for their blush Bill Levkoff floor length dresses.
We often find success in the first dress a bride tries on! Snaps to Lily on not being afraid to say yes to her dress 2 years before “I Do”. Time flies when you’re wedding planning!
“The dress was my first check list off the wedding to-do list. It made choosing a venue, flowers, tuxes much easier.”
The Big Day: “I thought I was going to be a bridezilla, but was surprisingly calm throughout the whole process. Thank goodness for supportive family & friends! Every detail came together wonderfully.
I loved everything so it's hard to choose one thing: Our vows, my bridal gown, flowers by Jan Lorrey Flowers, our DJ Dan Sky and the food!!”
Thanks, Lily, for sharing all of the special details about your fairytale wedding! The day looked just as spectacular as you did.
