Notes from Bridal Styles Brides {Vanessa}

Friday, January 17th, 2014

When it comes to choosing the perfect bridal headpiece in NYC, even Australia isn’t too far away. Especially since when, if you can’t travel, you can do the next best thing and order online!

From Vanessa:

“My experience with Bridal Styles Boutique was more than perfect! Elaine went above and beyond to help and make sure everything was perfect!! She took photos of the headpiece from every angle so that I could see what I was buying, all the way in Australia. She was so sweet and replied to every single question, even the silly ones.

When I received my package it was so much more beautiful than I expected. I’m so happy and can’t recommend Bridal Style Boutiques enough.”

What a stunning bride you were, Vanessa! We are absolutely delighted that you loved your Swarovski headpiece, and that your experience was fantastic despite the distance. Best wishes!

Senada and Agron’s Chic Vegas Wedding Shoot

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

When a member of the bridal community gets married, it’s a very big deal!  For years lovely Senada, a gifted hairstylist and beautiful person both inside and out,  has made many of our brides look gorgeous and feel relaxed and calm. So, when we were able to do the same for Senada on her wedding day, we were thrilled and honored.

Growing up in Montenegro, Senada and Agron’s families were close so it was only natural that the two became friends. It wasn’t until they both moved to the US that their friendship became something much more. From Senada:

“Our parents, who both owned restaurants back home and were very good friends. We were neighbors and we even went to the same school. When we moved to the US, we kept in touch.” But before long, their friendship grew into love, thanks to their mutual connection to  weddings!

“For the past 15 years, my husband has worked for the city of New York (Mayor’s Office & NYC MEDIA), but his side job is working with AlbaPro, doing video production. Since I do many of the brides in the Albanian community and most of them use AlbaPro for their beautiful work, we ended up at many of the weddings together. After our work was done at the weddings, we’d stay and talk, which, since we both enjoyed it so much, evolved into seeing each other.”

Clearly, they were a couple destined for each other! And, as they discovered, you can’t run away from destiny! From Senada:

“When on my 35th birthday, Agron proposed in front of my friends and family, it was a big, wonderful surprise. It was so emotional! I felt as if life with my best friend finally started.”

Both being very creative people, in lieu of a big wedding, the two decided to travel to Las Vegas for an artistic wedding photo shoot. Enlisting the help of her two sisters and lovely daughter, Diana, Senada set about planning an unforgettable experience for two!

Since no wedding photo is complete without a glowing bride wearing a gorgeous gown and fabulous accessories, Senada went shopping:

“I knew I wanted a mermaid gown with clean, simple design, and ended up with two! The first was by Matthew Christopher, and the second, which I wore in the casino shots, was custom made. Of course when you have a simple dress, you have to add some fabulous bling to it. Of course I went to Bridal Styles for my accessories, a beautiful statement necklace that completed my look, and a brooch could be worn in my hair as a comb.”

Six months later, after saying “I do” at City Hall and in a religious ceremony, Senada and Agron jetted out west.

“We took pictures in The National Park in the desert and also on the Red Rock Canyon. Because of the heat, we had to take pictures after sunset. It was an amazing experience. After we were finished with the pictures outside, we went to the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. We changed our outfits and took pictures inside a casino.

It was so much fun working with the people I love most, and having my husband there with me made everything so special. Everyone worked so hard to make the trip incredible. My friend, Lumi worked her magic as a make-up artist, and, of course, AlbaPro did a wonderful job. Traveling around and getting to experience new places was such a fantastic experience!”

Now back in New York as husband and wife, Senada and Agron have this advice for those soon to be wed:

“My advice to all of upcoming brides is to make sure you choose the right person to spend forever with. Having someone who you can trust , love and respect is the best gift. Finding your best friend in your soul mate is also something that you wouldn’t trade for the world.

Last but not least, you can never go wrong with Bridal Styles Boutique and of course you have to show off your wonderful look with the amazing photographers of AlbaPro!”

Gabriella and Rocco’s Gorgeous Classic Wedding

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Since their days playing with Legos and learning ABCs, Rocco and Gabriella have been a part of the other’s life.
From Gabriella:

“Rocco and I met in elementary school. We both grew up in Brooklyn and lived only two blocks away from each other. When I graduated elementary school, my family moved to Staten Island. The good thing was that he remained best friends with my cousin and when we were 16 we started hanging out again. By 18 we started dating each other seriously.”

Long before they even began dating, Gabriella knew one day she’d be Rocco’s wife:

“Before we started dating, Rocco and I were in conversation about proposals, and I asked him if he ever thought about how he would propose to ‘the one’. He turned to me and said, “I can’t tell you because what if you are the one?”. From that moment, I knew he would be the one I would spend the rest of my life with.”

Bridal Styles Bride Gabriella & Rocco

Gabriella’s intuition was right! Several years later, she finally received the answer to her question of just how Rocco planned to propose to “the one” with a big surprise!

“My birthday was on a Thursday and that night he had taken me to dinner to a beautiful restaurant out of Central Park. Right after dinner he begged me to take a horse and carriage ride through Central Park, so I agreed. I truly believed he begged me because he had plans to propose. Well, little did I know the ride and night would come to an end with no proposal.

That Saturday evening, he told me that before going with all of our friends for drinks he wanted to watch our parents cruise ship leave for their vacation. So, we went down by shore road in Brooklyn to watch the cruise ship and, as the ship was passing I saw this HUGE sign that said “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”. When I turned to look at Rocco, he was down on one knee. As soon as it happened, my father had the captain honk his horn and all of a sudden all of our family came running from across the over path with balloons, cake and champagne. He even had a photographer capture every second of the proposal.”

Almost right away, together with her bridesmaids, sisters, and mother, Gabriella began planning her wedding, and within a week they’d booked The Basilica of Regina Pacis along with their photographer and DJ. Not long after, the soon-to-be weds chose the perfect spot for their celebration, the Venetian in Garfield, NJ.

Next on Gabriella’s list was The Dress, so she headed off to Kleinfeld to say yes!

“Originally, I envisioned myself in a Pnina Tornai ball gown, however, the second dress the attendant brought out to me, a Stephen Yearick, was THE ONE. It was a beautiful mermaid shaped gown covered in crystals, and was just perfect.”

For the finishing touches of her wedding day look, Gabriella paired gorgeous jewels from her parents with a special piece from Bridal Styles:

“My jewelry was given to me from my parents as a wedding day gift, which was diamond studs and a tennis bracelet. My favorite accessory of course was my show stopping headpiece. When I went to Bridal Styles, I picked a headpiece and decided to go back after my hair trial. When I went back a second time to try on the headpiece I was happy with it but felt there was something missing. Well, little did we know that the owner would come out of the back with this breathtaking head piece! As soon as he put it on my head my mother said, “There is no other one I’d rather see you in.” and that was it. I received compliment after compliment the entire night about my head piece. I could not be happier and already have people in my family asking if they can wear it for their wedding. To me, that is the biggest compliment ever.”

October 12 finally arrived, and, for Gabriella and Rocco, it was pure magic:

“It was truly the most perfect day ever. The day started off at the beauty salon, House of Trends, in Staten Island at 6:00 am. All of the bridesmaids, flower girls and mothers of the bride and groom were there together. Then my father and I were picked up from my parent’s home in a 1930 Rolls Royce Convertible.

At the church, I could not wait to see the look on my husband’s face. Together, my dad and I walked down the aisle while a friend of mine sang “Ave Maria.” The walk down the aisle felt as though it was never ending. At the bottom of the aisle, we untied a White Ribbon that signified my dad leading me down the path to the future with my husband and I.

When I finally arrived to the pew, I couldn’t wait for the moment Deacon announced us husband and wife. Finally when he did we were off to Dumbo Park to take pictures and then on to the Venetian. The hall was magnificent, filled of marble and granite with a breathtaking dome in our room with oversized chandelier.

Our first dance was to Michael Buble’s “Close Your Eyes” as we moved on a floating floor. Our second dance was to Alicia Keys “If I Ain’t Got You” with snow falling over the dance floor, it was truly breathtaking. Our Viennese hour began with a sliding wall and opened to a floating floor as well.

It was wonderful to see all my added details, like an accordion player during cocktail hour, flip flops for all of the woman to use as dancing shoes, and a step and repeat so that everyone could leave with a picture as well as a favor at the end of the night.”

On a day that for both Gabriella and Rocco will always be special, both have moments they’ll cherish.
From Gabriella:

“I’ll never forget the look on my husband’s face as I walked down the aisle was a look of amazement, a little fear and most of all a look of relief…Like a thousand pounds had been lifted off of his back.”

From Rocco:
“When the church doors opened and Gabriella started to walk down the aisle….I’ll never forget it.”

Our happy newlyweds have this advice for couples planning their own celebrations:

“Enjoy every moment of the planning process and the day of the wedding as much as possible. Don’t let the little details be your focus because the day of you will not even notice them. My husband says for all of the grooms to learn how to say “Yes” to everything and just enjoy it as much as possible!”
