The moment the engagement ring goes on your finger to the exchange of vows marks an exciting, but very stressful period. From finding a dress and venue to choosing décor to dealing with the demands of not only your family and friends, but also your fiancé’s, the wedding planning process can be overwhelming and pressure-filled. Having recently gone through it herself, Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) Landis Bejar understood the modern bride’s headspace, specifically the emotions, anxieties, and uncertainties she feels entering into a major life transition – marriage. Landis realized that the wedding industry was missing one key service – no one was providing support and advice on how to handle wedding related stress in healthy and productive ways.

Claire & James Wedding – Bride & Groom – Capitale – by Susan Shek

 

Claire and James’ love story begins at the start of their freshman year in college. “We were actually introduced by one of my bridesmaids and her boyfriend, who is now her husband. She asked me to come and hang out with their friends one evening and that is when I first met James.” They hit it off immediately, but there was one small problem. Both were seeing other people at the time. Claire looks back and says with a little laugh, “Our relationships didn’t last too much longer. We went back home for Thanksgiving break and told our significant others that we had met someone. That was nine years ago, we’ve been inseparable ever since.”

Her ethereal bridal look was completed by floor length-veil, custom design Christian Louboutin shoes, and a simple bouquet of white blooms and greenery.

Imagine launching a bridal collection completely on your own from a tiny Brooklyn studio apartment. Designing, sewing, marketing, handling clients’ orders, shipping – you are doing it all. Oh, and you’re also pregnant with your first child. This is where Rebecca Schoneveld found herself in 2010 when she started selling her handmade wedding gowns on Etsy.

Rebecca is a prime example that if you stay true to yourself and create out of genuine love for the craft, people will take notice. Her simple, timeless designs struck a chord with brides-to-be who wanted something different from the ornate dresses filling the racks of bridal shops.
