Part 3: Ceremony & Chuppah

Anticipation grew as guests took their seats to witness Sara and Mitch’s nuptials. In just moments, the couple would meet under beautiful, floral adorned chuppah.

When it comes to choosing wedding attire, most brides-to-be let personal style be their guide. After all, you want to look and feel like yourself, but with a bit more polish and shine around the edges. Here, Bride & Blossom featured bride Sara talks about her “say yes to the dress” moment, jewelry, and stepping out-of-the box with her shoes.

Part 2 Wedding Dress & Personals

“I knew that I wanted a big, princess type dress, but without any bling and sparkle,” says Sara. Her search led her to BHLDN where she found a breathtaking design meeting all her criteria. The silhouette featured a simple lace top, fitted waist, and diaphanous, layered tulle skirt. “I knew it was the perfect dress for me when I put it on and couldn’t stop smiling,” she remembers. Finishing her dreamy look with a fingertip length veil, also from BHLDN, and hair styled in loose, flowing curls, the bride had an air of having just stepped out of a fairytale.
