One of the distinguishing features of Natirar is its­ lush natural setting, which offers an unforgettable backdrop for saying “I Do.” But ask anyone who has gone through it, getting married outdoors can be very stressful as inclement weather is always a factor. “For twelve months, I crossed my fingers everyday hoping that it wouldn’t rain!” BB Featured Bride Lauren exclaims. Answering her wishes, Mother Nature came through with the most picture-perfect day imaginable. Here, Lauren, talks about her and Lou’s breathtaking hilltop ceremony.

If you are currently wracked with nerves trying to decide on what to wear down the aisle, then Lauren’s ‘Say Yes to The Dress’ story will give you hope. This month’s BB Featured Bride looks back and says with a laugh, “I think I tried on every dress in the Tri-State area.” Lauren’s perseverance paid off in the end. Here, she shares the details about her stunning Netta BenShabu gown and personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

New York City’s bridal boutiques are filled with rack upon rack of beautiful fashions by luxury designers from all over the world. Hunting for a wedding dress is exciting and fun – at first. Even the most seasoned shopper can become overwhelmed by the abundance of choices. When asked about her experience, Lauren replies, “Yikes… this was a long process. I tried on more dresses than I care to admit.” Her quest led to Wedding Atelier on Madison Avenue. There, Lauren had encountered a problem of a different kind. “I ended up loving every dress I tried on!” she exclaims. Ultimately, it was a gown by Israeli designer Netta BenShabu that won her heart. “When I put on that dress, I finally knew my search was over.”
