Bridal Boutique: One Love, One Dream in Courtice, ON. 

Date: October 15, 2016

Photographer: Ashley Adams of Flashback Photo Co based in Whitby, ON – I’ve known Ashley for a number of years and she was a great fit for my husband and I. She knew what was important to us and she made that the priority. We got amazing photos that we’ll treasure for years to come.

The Gown: I tried on a few dresses before I found mine. I almost didn’t try the London gown as I was feeling down about myself since I hadn’t found anything that looked good on my body. Being plus size is a battle and the bridal fashion world hasn’t made as many strides in that area. But then I found the Callista dresses and as soon as I put on the London I knew it was the one! I chose the dress a month after we got engaged. We hadn’t even set a date yet but I knew the London was the perfect gown no matter where or when we were getting married.

I loved the lace on the London gown and found that an A line fit suited me best. I didn’t feel my size in my dress, I felt just perfect. The pearls and crystal trim was the perfect delicate detail!  I couldn’t have picked a more perfect dress for my big day. It was exactly what I pictured myself wearing when I married the love of my life!

Barbara’s Top Tip: Do what is best for you and your fiancé. It is a day to celebrate the two of you and it should be what you want. When you face resistance or someone questions you my advice is to smile and the just do what you want anyway. You’ll regret it if you don’t!
