Julie & Igor

One wintry evening during dinner with a mutual friend, Julie and Igor each realized that they had met someone special. When Igor moved to Miami to start five months of hospital clinical training, being apart from Julie became unbearable. Even video chatting every night wasn’t enough! So, Julie headed south. “I decided to pack my bags and fly to Miami. I stayed for a week, and a month later Igor was back in NY. I knew he was the one when those five months felt like years and I realized there is no me without him.”

He carried her engagement ring around in his pocket for three days waiting for just the right moment, one night “during our walk we were discussing our future and how we see ourselves in ten years. What should have been a very long conversation, turned into a short, shocking and amazing experience” recalls Julie.

“‘I see myself with nobody but you, but I want to turn my image into a reality.’ Igor went down on one knee in the middle of the street and asked me to marry him. He really did choose the perfect time and as speechless as I was I found it easy to say YESSS!“

With the help of her mother and sister, Julie and Igor began planning their wedding. “Igor and I wanted a Victorian/Venetian look to our wedding. We chose gold and cream shades of colors with large antique candelabras that complimented the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ….Our wedding day was straight out of a fairy tale, with a beautiful nighttime ceremony that was lit up with candles and thousands of flowers. Our reception décor included exquisite glass candelabras overflowing with crystals and large balls of flowers that were made up of orchids, roses, and hydrangeas….Cuban cigars were rolled throughout the night for our guests to enjoy.”

Then there was Julie’s wedding gown, bridal veil, headpiece, and jewelry. While planning her storybook wedding, Julie knew exactly how she wanted to look and feel.

“I have envisioned myself as a bride ever since I was a little girl….Of course, a beautiful and dramatic ball gown with just enough sparkle that would make me look and feel like a true queen. Bridal Reflections did an amazing job at creating my stunning custom Ines Di Santo wedding dress. Bridal Styles created the most amazing headpiece along with two gorgeous veils that completed my look. My headpiece was truly a work of art. My jewelry was also purchased in Bridal Styles and I heard nothing but compliments throughout the night. Edward and Elaine are amazing at what they do. They worked closely with me and made sure I left happy.”

“Our wedding was truly a fairy tale. It was everything we both dreamed it would be and much more. Seeing smiles on everyone’s faces just made it that much more special. Our most memorable part of our wedding was standing under the chuppah in front of our family and friends while our rabbi pronounced us husband and wife.”

To all the brides and grooms planning their weddings, Julie and Igor have a little advice!

Julie – “Enjoy every minute of both planning your wedding and the day of because it all goes by so fast.”

Igor – “To all the future grooms out there, always agree with your bride while planning your wedding. A happy wife means a happy life.”
