I get a lot of questions and see a lot of searches on RER about my wedding. So, I made this page to show the most popular things I get questions on. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to email
My Wedding Dress: I had it custom made by a shop in Montebello, CA. It was a combination of two dresses I saw in magazines. My #1 choice couldn’t be made with the open, lace up back I wanted. So I had it made. It was a risk to have someone make the front of one dress and back of another – especially because I didn’t get to see it until it was done (!) but it turned out perfect.
Mermaid cut, lace overlay and a deep lace up back. I also had removable sleeves made. I was supposed to wear the sleeves for the ceremony and pictures, and could remove them if I wanted to dance. But, I forgot them at the rental house and we didn’t have time to go back (we were already very late). Agh. It still hurts to remember that part, because I did not want a sleeveless dress – I was adamant about that.
So a few days after the wedding I put my dress back on with the sleeves to show my grandma. She wasn’t able to attend because of health and mobility issues. You can see my visit to her in my dress here.
We had the ceremony at a winery in Paso Robles, CA. It is central California wine country. The winery we chose was a castle and it felt like a fairy tale.
We chose Paso Robles because Ben and I fell in love during numerous road trips up the California coast. For some reason we would always make a pit stop in Paso for some wine
When we visited this Castle / winery we knew this was the place. It was regal and majestic and the stuff of fairy tales.
Our wedding day was windy! My hair appointment went WAY over and everything wasn’t exactly as planned, but it was still amazing.
