“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.” – Unknown

Two kids in love never gets old, and it looks like we’re not the only ones that think so! Caught on film stealing a smooch from her new husband Edward, Bridal Styles bride Dorina couldn’t be having more fun or look more glamorous wearing her vintage-inspired crystal comb.

This happy new couple definitely gets an A+ in the love and laughter department!

Best wishes!

Anna & Pietro’s Westmount Country Club Wedding

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

April 16, 2008 is a day that both Anna and her new husband Pietro will always remember. It was when everything changed!

They had known each other through mutual friends, but it was while at a friend’s barbeque they found themselves sitting together talking about life when Pietro asked Anna out to dinner.

The rest, as they say, is history!

Two years later in February, Anna was headed to the gym. Meanwhile, Pietro had arrived at their home from work to get everything set for the special night in which he planned to propose.

However, Anna found herself stuck in traffic, missed her gym class, and headed home. “I walked into a kitchen and saw a bouquet of beautiful red roses. I thought they were for our second year anniversary but then he pulled a little black box and said ‘I have something else for you!’”

When she opened the box, for a moment Anna was too shocked and excited to speak! But by the time Pietro asked for her hand, she recovered enough to say ‘yes.’

Since they wanted to start a family right away, Anna and Pietro decided to wed by the end of the year, choosing November 13, 2010 for their date.

As a bridal coordinator with her own wedding planning and coordinating company, A Touch Of Posh, Anna had taken care of many brides and their weddings! So she knew exactly what she wanted to do and the top vendors to choose. It wasn’t long before she and Pietro had chosen Sacred Heart of Jesus in Bayside and Westmount Country Club for their ceremony and reception, along with all the professionals that would help make their dream wedding come true.

Next on her list were her wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses!

“I always wanted to have a big, beautiful wedding. I knew exactly what dress I was going wear and the dresses I envisioned my brides in. My dress was by Maggie Sottero ‘Sabelle’ custom encrusted with Swarovski crystals, and my bridesmaids wore dresses by Bill Levkoff. My favorite color is Burgundy/wine, which is prefect for Fall, so it became the color theme of my wedding.”

Bridal gown chosen, Anna began to search for her bridal accessories. “I wanted to get a unique headpiece and vintage looking accessories, but couldn’t find the one I LOVED, until a friend suggested that I go to Bridal Styles Boutique. Once there, I knew it was the place to find one of a kind headpieces and accessories. There were so many headpieces my eyes were all over the store. With all that amazing stuff I was able to find a headpiece I LOVED and vintage style accessories – just what I was looking for. My accessories made me look different, unique! I couldn’t wait to wear them!”

To Anna and Pietro, the sunny skies and 65 degree weather that greeted them and their 300 guests on their wedding day was just icing on the cake. It meant so much to “celebrate the beginning of our lives together with friends and family – it was very special to us! We put our hearts into making the wedding of our dreams!”

Even among all those great memories, for Anna and Pietro some will always remain vivid. “Walking down the aisle and seeing the man I love standing by the aisle waiting to spend the rest of his life with me was the most memorable part of my wedding. The first dance was my husbands, besides the surprise grooms cake. I got him a 3D deer cake since he’s a big hunter!”

Now newlyweds, Anna and Pietro have the following advice for engaged couples planning their weddings:

“Have the wedding of your dreams! Plan it the way you always envisioned it to be, because it is the most memorable day of your life! There are so many great vendors that would work with you and your budget, just remember to choose them carefully. We had the best experience with all the vendors we chose! It is very important to work with professional people who care about your day! Remember it’s your big day and you should be treated like a princess, have fun planning your wedding and the most important don’t get too stressed out! Enjoy every minute of your wedding day, because it goes too quick! Hire a wedding coordinator to do all the work for you the day of your wedding so you and your bridal party can enjoy the best day of your life!”

What Makes a Princess?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Friday, April 29 is right around the corner, and you know that that means – The Royal Wedding!

Many designers are showing full-skirted “royal” inspired gowns at the runway shows, but without crowning jewels, they don’t seem quite fit for a princess. After all, tiaras put the “T” in royalty!

We recently read that, after Catherine’s engagement, the Queen invited her to Buckingham Palace to choose the tiara she wanted to wear on her wedding day. From a selection including the stunning Cambridge Lovers Knot Tiara worn by Princess Diana and others that haven’t seen the light of day for decades, Catherine chose The One…except we don’t get to see it until April!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…we say this one is priceless!
