As 2016 comes to a close, we’re wrapping up the year with sharing an amazing wedding – and an amazing collection of photographs! We’re so happy bride Casey shared so many photos, it’s almost like we were there.
We’ll start at the beginning. Casey and Matthew are both in the healthcare field, and they met through mutual friends. They dated for a very long 6 years. So long that Casey had started to think an engagement would never happen!
The couple planned to take a weekend trip to the shore, a trip that almost didn’t happen because Matthew got sick. While Casey was perfectly okay with postponing the trip, Matthew was determined to not let a little sickness ruin his proposal plans. He popped the question during a romantic walk on the beach at sunset (and a few days later found out he had pneumonia!).
When we met Casey, she was picturing herself in an A-line gown that would hide her curves. We pictured her showing them off!
“When I had my visit at Le Bella Donna – I was informed that my curves were my best feature and I had to show them off! I tried about 12 dresses on that day and kept comparing every one to the second one I had tried on. It looked amazing and made me feel gorgeous! I thought it was interesting to find out that everything I thought I wanted in a dress, was nothing I ended up with.”
The dress was a fit and flare lace gown by Sophia Tolli.
The wedding day started of with a memorable story, one that reminds us of the engagement! We’ll let Casey tell it:
“My husband and his groomsmen took a party bus into the city for our first look photos and wedding party pictures. I literally felt like I had thought of everything, except my husband’s motion sickness problem, of course. By the time the guys arrived at the hotel, my husband was starting to feel sick. The rest of the time on the bus traveling around the city for pictures was spent with his head in a trash bag. I felt awful for him but luckily – he was such a good sport about it, he was even apologizing for being sick! Once the ceremony was about to start, I think adrenaline kicked in and he seemed to perk up very quickly. Thank God!”
Matthew, it sounds like there’s nothing that will keep you from Casey!
The wedding was spectacular, and a truly memorable event.
Congratulations Casey and Matthew!
