Some of our beautiful brides need not one but two gorgeous headpieces! Beautiful Ejona chose a custom clear and champagne crystal flower hair comb for her bridal shower as well as a dramatic Swarovski-encrusted side comb on her wedding day.

From Ejona:

“Thank you! I loved everything!!! Coming back for more!!!”

You looked fabulous on your wedding day, Ejona, and what a great red engagement party dress. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures, and best wishes!

Angela and Bruce’s Spectacular Ghanaian-Scottish Wedding

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Angela and Bruce’s love story began at a place where meeting your match is the last thing on anyone’s mind…at work! But, from the moment Angela and Bruce met, sparks flew. From Angela:

“We met each other at Holiday Inn Accra Airport in Ghana when I was working as Bruce’s personal assistant, and, from day one, we had a natural chemistry. When we were together it just seemed right. We could read each other’s minds and be open with each other.”

Having met her prince, Angela was in for more unexpected romance:

“When he was not supposed to be in the county, Bruce made a surprise visit to my home. He came into my bedroom where I was in a deep sleep, woke me and then asked was I ready to spend the rest of my life with him. Initially I thought I was dreaming until he repeated the question and the true reality of the situation came to me.”

Despite the fact that the two work in the hotel business, putting together an international wedding takes a lot of preparation! And, with the day only eight months away, Angela and Bruce enlisted the help of Abokuma Ellis (Purple Twirl) Weddings and Events to help with the planning of their waterside wedding in Ghana at the Royal Senchi Resort Hotel.

From Angela:

“Because we have both been in the hotel business for many years, the planning was very much like a day at work. We did, however, use the wedding planner to take away the stress of putting all the vendors together on the day and to ensure the hotel was in check.

My vision was to have a classic look. I wanted the wedding to have the same color scheme as my engagement, so we used royal blue and gold for the table cloths and chairs, our centerpieces fresh white and yellow roses (imported as roses don’t grow in Ghana) matched my bouquet and were set on Tartan which matched Bruce’s kilt.

I traveled to Bruce’s family home in Scotland, and in three weeks put together the rings, our Scottish favors (mini sporran key rings), Bruce’s kilt and accessories, wedding dress, and, of course, our daughter Natsumi’s outfits. While there, I also made sure all the handmade jewelry from Bridal Styles Boutique, along with my bespoke Kavelle Couture wedding dress from Scotland, would be ready to be transported to Ghana.

Locally, I had the bridesmaid’s dresses made with the traditional Kente cloth, and one of my friends made t-shirts for both the groomsmen and bridesmaids for before the wedding.”

With all her wedding preparations in the works, Angela began her search for the elements of her bridal look by turning on her laptop, where she found the gown of her dreams…and Bridal Styles Boutique!

“I spent many hours surfing websites searching for the wedding dress I wanted. I always had my eye on a fishtail strapless wedding dress, and, since our time frame was growing short, I chose a Scottish bespoke dressmaker, Kavelle Couture, as they hand-make your dress to your exact specifications. Would you believe in three weeks from my first appointment I had my dream dress?

My hair and makeup were designed to complement my custom hair comb from Bridal Styles Boutique as well as my dress, and my beautiful Christian Louboutin shoes were a wedding gift from Bruce.”

When December 14, 2013 finally arrived, it was beautiful and sunny….and started bright and early! From Angela:

“The reception and ceremony had been designed and set up by a company called Décor Talk.

Our day started early with a 5am wake up call, and, while my bridesmaids and myself were being seen to by our hair and makeup artists, enjoyed waffles and champagne for breakfast. All the while, our 10-month old daughter, Natsumi, was running around demanding attention.

Our brief ceremony took place under a gazebo beside the riverbank on the hotel grounds, during which a quartet played. I walked down the aisle to “Beautiful in White,” by Shaun Ward (better remembered from the film Father of the Bride).

Following our short ceremony, we enjoyed a cocktail hour and more of our quartet’s music by the riverside. From there, we strolled to our reception inside the hotel’s ballroom, set with round tables, one long top table and a glass dance floor, beside which our five-tier wedding cake was displayed.

After being announced in, we started the reception by cutting the cake together with our mothers. Our buffet was laid outside so everyone could continue to enjoy the view, and, as we dined, the quartet played. After the meal, our first dance was to “At Last” by Etta James, sung by our quartet’s soloist. Following the bride-father and mother-groom dances, we kicked into the dancing with the DJ!

Before the night was over, I tossed the bouquet and Bruce had tossed my garter.”

By the end of their celebration, Bruce and Angela’s hearts were filled to the brim with wonderful memories, but, for each, the ceremony stood out the most.
Angela will never forget saying her vows while Bruce held back tears, and Bruce will always remember watching Angela walk down the aisle and saying his vows.

Our beaming couple’s have the following advice for other brides and grooms-to-be planning to say ‘I do’ :

Angela:

“Make sure you have your man where you want him and his credit card accessible. Oh, and to ensure he knows what you really want exactly! Lol! And don’t let anyone talk you out of your dream.”

Bruce:

“Agree to whatever she wants. Oh, and ensure the limit on the credit card is set appropriately, and for the jewelry you must use Bridal Styles Boutique and have a hair comb hand made!”

Frances and Larry’s Fabulous, Vintage Wedding

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Thanks to an introduction from Larry’s best friend, Frances and her handsome sweetie’s love story began! Our gorgeous bride knew she’d met her match almost from the moment they met for one very important reason. From Frances:

“He always made me feel like the only girl in the room, and continues to do so.”

A romantic, Larry proposed in a heart-stopping, unforgettable way:

“After a horse and carriage ride in Central Park, he got down on one knee! He’d even arranged for a photographer to hide and capture the magical moment.”

For these two lovebirds, the next 11 months were spent planning the wedding of their dreams. In fact, Frances says that Larry was her biggest helper and that she couldn’t have done it without him! Still, even with her groom by her side, organizing their spectacular, antique-inspired, red-hued celebration at New Jersey’s Pleasantdale Chateau was no easy task. From Frances:

“It was extremely stressful! It is a lot more to take on than anyone ever imagines it will be. But can be very rewarding in the end when your vision comes to life.

I was going for a very dramatic, unconventional wedding and look. I wanted lots of drama, deep reds and dripping candles with antique silver fixtures. I wanted all antique details. I love Art Deco jewelry! Hence my beautiful antique set engagement ring.

We both have a thing for skulls, so our custom cake topper was the perfect touch to add a piece of who we are without being too over the top. Also having a red reception is not typical, most brides opt for white, I am more of a red kind of gal. We wanted everything highly stylized, from all of the stationery to the decor to each and every vendor we had. Nothing was understated or simple.

Thanks to my vendors, it all came to life on my wedding day. Aramat Events did all of my decor, they are the best. Everything looked exactly the way I wanted it to and I owe that to them. Fusion Lighting brought my vision of projecting roses all throughout my wedding, it was one of the most beautiful and memorable aspects of my entire wedding. Finally, Matthew Sowa captured it all. He is a true artist, rather than just your average wedding photographer, and he did a phenomenal job.“

Frances’s unique vision, love for vintage jewelry, and penchant for glamour also influenced her wedding day look. After choosing a dramatic, mermaid Kenneth Pool wedding gown with a peek-a-boo tulle skirt and dazzling belt, she visited us to put the finishing touches on her bridal ensemble, which included a custom designed 1920s-inspired comb, a custom-made lace edged veil and fabulous jewelry.
From Frances:

“Bridal Styles has the largest selection of gorgeous jeweled accessories out there. They helped me sparkle and completed my dream look with all of the Art Deco pieces that I love.”

After waiting almost a year for the day to arrive, our beautiful bride-to-be focused on enjoying the moment.

“I tried my best not to let anything get me flustered, I stayed calm throughout the entire morning and process of getting ready (some champagne is necessary). It really helped to start the day calm and not let the nerves and anxiety get to you, I wanted to take in and enjoy the day as much as a bride possibly can.”

On such an incredible day, Frances says one moment stands out among the rest:

“The ceremony, I love, love, loved everything about our magical wedding ceremony.”

Now husband and wife, Larry and Frances have this advice for other planning brides and grooms:

“Having meltdowns and freaking out is very very normal…we ALL go through it. Try on as many dresses as you possibly can before purchasing one, its the only way you will truly see what looks right on you and what you feel the most beautiful in. And also try to walk around your wedding and notice all of the things you worked so hard in preparing for, the day goes by quickly and you will wish you took more time to look at everything. Oh and take the time to take lots of photos with your very closest loved ones and family, you will wish you had more!”
