Sarah & Ethan


The Big Question

We were heading home from just a regular Saturday morning run and when I walked into our apartment I saw pictures of us set up in a heart on our living room floor with a scrap book filled with pictures of us and our relationship. The last page of the scrap book said "Will you marry me?"; The surprises didn't end there!

He also planned a surprise dinner with both of our families at our favorite restaurant, and then had friends waiting for us a nearby bar to surprise me and continue the celebration!

Shop 'Til You Drop

I was pretty nervous to go dress shopping as I am a very particular person and I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. I went to 3 stores before finding my dress. I tried all different types of fits and styles and really loved some of them, but I felt as though I was playing dress up. In so many of the dresses I felt as though the dress was wearing me.

I wanted a dress that brought out the best version of me and that is when I found the Rebecca. Its clean lines and classic look allowed me to feel timeless and elegant while still having some modern touches. I added a cathedral length veil with tiny pearls and a lace bolero for the ceremony since I was required to cover my shoulders and then added a belt for the party!

This dress gave me versatility and made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself on my wedding day!

The Perfect Day

It was truly the best day of my life. It was a very relaxing morning, doing hair and make-up with my bridal party in the hotel as the boys got ready in another suite. After we were ready we went to the Synagogue for pictures. I did a first look with my dad and then my future husband. Both were very moving.

We had a traditional Jewish ceremony. Following the ceremony we went back to the hotel for the reception. There we danced the night away! We had an after party in the hospitality suite for anyone who still had energy to celebrate.

Wise Words

Don't loose sight of the day. Throughout the entire planning process and day of it is so easy to get lost in the details. Instead I tried to always take a step back and remember that this day was happening because I was going to spend the rest of my life with my person! Remembering this always allowed me to have perspective and most importantly fun!
