Glamorous & Modern North Carolina Loft Wedding
The Dress & Attire
Before I started wedding dress shopping, I knew I wanted a mermaid style dress with a sweetheart neckline. After trying on a few dresses, I decided no lace or beading, but when I tried on the Blush by Hayley Paige Reece Gown my eyes immediately lit up. It was nothing like I had tried on before and was the opposite of what I thought I liked. It had beautiful Marrakesh beading, a cashmere lining, and a flowing skirt with horsehair trim. After I did a few dance moves, I couldn’t stop smiling and knew it was the one!
David wanted to wear a black tux, so we decided on a classic look for the bridal party. The groomsmen wore black tuxedos with matching Skagen watches and the bridesmaids wore a black chiffon floor-length gowns from Azazie. I wanted to bring in an additional color for the bridesmaids, so my florist added Cappuccino and Sahara roses to the bouquets. She also hand-tied them with champagne chiffon and white silk streamers that was a beautiful contrast to the ladies’ black gowns.
My makeup artist created the perfect look for me. I don’t wear makeup daily, so I was very nervous about not looking like myself on my wedding day. I shared my concerns with her and she crafted a dewy look with a subtle eyeshadow and bold red lip that made me feel like myself and bridal.
