All weddings are full of meaningful details, and it’s those threads, woven within a celebration signifying lives joined together, that create a truly beautiful day!
On July 6, Emelie married Bryan in a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Peter’s Parish…the same church where Emelie was baptized and had her first communion and confirmation.
While exchanging vows, she wore her mother’s veil, which was made in 1975 by her now-deceased grandmother and also worn by Emelie’s aunt. Emelie’s mom was the one to update it for the wedding, transforming it from a traditional cathedral veil to fingertip length and adding lace edging.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds took off for photos in Emelie’s Fiat for High Banks Metro Park, where Bryan had proposed!
Then it was off to NorthPointe Hotel for a reception they’d planned together and was just what they wanted.
All the while, Emilie was radiant in her Jemma gown:
“I loved the Jemma because I wanted something classic and elegant with some lace, and very importantly, something that didn’t make me look too short next to Bryan (who is over 12 inches taller than I am).”
Best wishes, Emelie and Bryan, and thanks so much for sharing your day with us!
