Le Bella Donna Bride

Samantha & Ali

Today’s Le Bella Donna bride of the day is Samantha! Samantha married her wife Ali in a beautiful, lace Stella York A-line gown this April at Clark’s Landing Yacht Club.

Samantha and Ali met in the spring or 2016 on Match.com. It took 6 months for them to go on a first date because Samantha was so nervous to meet Ali, but it’s a good thing that they did! Their first date was at Sam Pan in Philadelphia on October 28th, 2016.

Samantha and Ali’s families were spending Christmas Eve together at Ali’s mother’s Seven Fish Christmas Eve dinner when Ali proposed! Ali used Christmas lights to spell out “Marry Me” in the backyard. When Samantha went outside, everyone followed, and Ali gave her the ring.

Samantha wanted a wedding gown that was “romantic and comfortable, but still a little bit sexy”. She certainly chose the perfect dress, with romantic lace and a cameo back, this gown has it all! Her favorite part of dress shopping was how “personable and fun” her Le Bella Donna bridal consultant was! It was the first store she went to and the third dress she tried on.

Samantha’s favorite part of her wedding day was the first look. Her and her wife were so anxious to finally see each other.

Samantha’s advice to other brides is to live in every moment. Everything goes by so fast, from planning to the actual big day. Things especially go by quickly on the day of the wedding!

Congratulations Samantha and Ali! We wish you many years of love and happiness together!
