With just six months between getting engaged and the day of her wedding, Lorenza had to move fast on major decisions that take most brides over a year to make. She knew this. So when her mother made an appointment at Kleinfeld, her goal was to walk out having said ‘yes to the dress’. Here, Lorenza talks about her breathtaking Pnina Tornai ensemble and the personal touches that made her wedding day so special.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

“I knew there would be so many gorgeous dresses that I could love,” recalls Lorenza. “I narrowed down one dress on Kleinfeld’s website before going in.” At her appointment, she was presented with three dresses including the dress she found online. Lorenza looks back and says with a laugh, “Sure enough, when I tried on that dress, I knew it was “the one. I was undoubtedly Kleinfeld’s fastest sale.”

Despite my busy work-life, I knew I was ready to meet someone special.” So upon the suggestion of a colleague, she joined, with some apprehension, the paid dating website, Match.com.
