Vendor reviews: dress + veil





Dress: Junko Yoshioka
I loved my dress! Everyone else did too, apparently. It was the first dress I tried on, and I instantly knew it was the one. Not one for frills, lace and sequins, this dress was draped ivory silk that suited my figure, beautifully architectural, and was made especially for me. Junko also designed a little bolero for me to wear for the church ceremony that was especially appropriate. I had 4 fittings total, the last one a week before the wedding to ensure a great fit, and they really worked to make the dress comfortable for me (extra boning so no uncomfortable corset!) Everyone at Junko Yoshioka was especially nice and knowledgeable.

Veil: Bridesheads Revisited
I went back and forth so many times when figuring out my veil…knowing that I didn’t want your standard cathedral length piece of tulle hanging off my head, I wasn’t left with many options. But after finding Brideshead Revisited at the New York Magazine Weddings Showcase last year, I kept them in the back of my mind for when the day came to try out veils, and promptly purchased the perfect one at The Wedding Library. The French veil had a removable gardenia that I could pin in my hair after the wedding, and was the perfect accessory.

Finally! The wedding




You guys have been so patient…so here are some more shots from the wedding. I’ll be taking Monday off for Memorial Day (we’ll be in Louisiana this weekend having a mini-wedding reception for Chad’s family), but next week, I’ll be starting vendor reviews, while finishing up with my coverage of NSS. Have a great weekend!!
