Yanita and Eddie’s Fairytale Wedding

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

When Eddie caught a glimpse of Yanita, it was love at first sight…but it took him a little courting before this beautiful Bridal Styles bride agreed to a first date. From Yanita:

“We were at a mutual friend’s party, and Eddie liked me as soon as he saw me. After the party, our mutual friend told me that Eddie liked me, but I didn’t want to ‘officially’ meet him. But Eddie was determined and asked me to be his friend on Facebook. After two weeks of private messages on Facebook I realized that we have a lot in common, and with my sister and mom encouraging me, I decided to go on a date and the rest is history!”

All it took was that one date, and Yanita was hooked!

“After our first date I came home and told my mom ‘this is the boy I am going to marry.’ It’s weird because our first date was not perfect! He took me to lunch in Manhattan where we shared a table with other people, that was weird. The menu consisted of all spicy food…and I’m allergic to spicy. But despite that, there was a very strong connection between us. On our third date he told me that he loved me and after two months we started living together. He fit in perfectly with my family, and that was very important to me.”

So, on a winter’s eve, when Eddie made a strange request, despite the cold, Yanita played along and got the surprise of her life!

“He took me to my favorite little restaurant in NYC and after dinner took me under the Brooklyn Bridge. He knew I loved it there. He was determined to propose that night in March. It was freezing. When we parked by the Brooklyn Bridge and got out of the car, all I wanted to do was get back in the car. Eddie wanted to go by the water and I kept telling him that he should go and I’d wait for him. Finally, I gave in and went. It was worth being cold, because that was when he proposed!”

With their date set for July 14, the two started planning. Luckily, Yanita’s sister had been married only less than a year before! Between her mom and sister, planning their wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau in New Jersey was almost a breeze.

“I got lucky that my sister had her wedding seven months before I had mine. That made my planning process a lot easier. I used some of the same vendors she used and already knew everything that needed to be done.”

Though all Yanita knew was that she wanted was a regal look, choosing her gown was, as they say, a piece of cake!

“I wanted to look like a princess. I didn’t have a specific dress style in mind, and so I went to try on different styles to see what looked best, then had my Pnina Tornai inspired dress custom-made.”

Next, Yanita visited us at Bridal Styles Boutique, where, as if everything was meant to be, she selected her bridal accessories and cake monogram in record time.

“Choosing my accessories was the simplest process. I knew I was getting my accessories from Bridal Styles Boutique ever since I went there with my sister to chose her headpiece for her wedding. With the biggest selection and the high professionalism, it took one visit of half an hour to decide on my dream headpiece. My headpiece was actually put together out of three different pieces because it was hard to narrow down to just one and it was made exactly the way I wanted it. I wanted a beautiful bracelet that was very sparkly to complete my look and got it at Bridal Styles as well.”

When the day arrived, it was more than either Yanita and Eddie had dreamed…

“It started off with hair and makeup with my sister in my bridal suite surrounded by champagne, different drinks and snacks. Then my mother and grandmother joined us. It was just a great time from the moment I woke up that day. Once I was all ready to go, pictures started, which was such a blast. The weather was great for the middle of July!

We just had a great time at our wedding and reception…it was more than either of us imagined. Having family and friends that flew in overseas just to be there with us was incredible. I’m so glad that we decided before our day to not drink anything (alcoholic) until the last hour of our wedding so we could take everything in and keep it crystal clear in our memories! My husband says the most memorable part of the wedding for him is his wife, and I’ll never forget what it was like to see him waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

Our wonderful day ended with the two of us changing into something a lot more comfortable to enjoy an after party with our closest friends.“

Now happy newlyweds, Yanita and Eddie offer this advice to planning couples:

Yanita: “No matter how much you plan or how much effort you put in, the day of the wedding there will most likely be something that’s not exactly the way you wanted it. Don’t let it ruin your special day. You can’t do anything about it the day of, so just keep smiling and forget about it. Only you know how it was supposed to be. Another very important piece of advice is to either wear flats or have flats to change into. I wore flats, and after being on my feet literally the whole day, my feet probably hurt less than any other females at the wedding!”

Eddie: “Embrace and enjoy every moment. Savor every moment with your wife. Be yourself and don’t be nervous.”

From Karla:

“I hope you remember me. My name is Karla. My wedding date was on November 12, 2011 and thank God I was able to use your accessories on that special day. I’d like to thank you so much for your boutique. Your accessories were of highest quality and I, along with my entire family and friends, absolutely loved them. They asked me where I bought them and I told them that Bridal Styles Boutique had them. As gratitude for those wonderful accessories, I’d like to share with you that special day, even if it’s only through pictures. I fully appreciate your help and may God continue to bless your business. I hope that your business is still up and running when my daughter(s) need anything wedding related from you…”

Of course we remember you, Karla! We are so glad your your headpiece, earrings, necklace and bracelet were everything you dreamed. Best wishes!

Contemporary Bride 2013 Photo Shoot {Behind the Scenes}

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Recently, Bridal Styles Boutique participated in the covers and editorial shoot for the 2013 issues of Contemporary Bride Magazine! We always have a great time with the staff, and, even after years of working with the magazine on their gorgeous covers, it’s amazing to see how the very talented crew puts everything together.

cb past cover

The day always begins with a rush of dress bags, accessory boxes, flowers, models, photography equipment, hair and makeup, and then, poof! A wedding wonderland with glamorous brides and sweet flower girls is created.

This shoot featured breathtaking gowns (which, as you can see, are divine even waiting to be slipped on) from Kleinfeld Bridal and Exquisite Bride. And, of course, all the stunning bridal accessories were from our 2013 collection at Bridal Styles Boutique!

Though the end result is fabulous images (that now we can’t wait to see on the pages of Contemporary Bride Magazine), the whole process takes an entire day and a ton of effort. As Photography by Frank and David from The Studio Photographers swept in to set up their equipment, Mandy and Kristen from La Sorella Bridal did a fantastic job on all the models’ hair, while Tim Alan worked his makeup magic. Meanwhile, beautiful bouquets from Lotus Petals Floral Design, wedding gowns, and bridal accessories were unpacked and prepared for the spotlight.

To give you a taste of what the day was like, we took the camera for some behind-the-scenes shots as the day unfolded!

Notes from Bridal Styles Brides {Lisa}

Friday, November 9th, 2012

From Lisa:

“My headpiece was a very important part of my bridal look, I knew it had to be grand. I searched for so long to find something exquisite, I was just not satisfied with anything average. When I came across Bridal Styles Boutique I was in heaven! I could not believe there was a store so unique with so many beautiful pieces and even better they were made of Swarovski crystals! I knew instantly which one I wanted, it was perfect, the thickness of the headband and the spray of the crystals really topped it off for me, it was everything that I was looking for. The headpiece tied into the crystals on my dress and my beautiful Swarovski crystal shoes. I was on top of the world not only did I marry my love but I had my dream wedding.

Thank you so much Bridal Styles for being a part of my vision and for helping me be the luckiest and happiest girl around.”

Thank you, Lisa! It’s our hope that every Bridal Style bride feels as gorgeous and happy as you on her wedding day. Hearing what a dream come true your day was and knowing we played a part in that gives us such joy. Best wishes!
