Ashley and Eric’s wedding day was all about romance and whimsy as they wed on a beautiful fall day in the Hudson Valley. The bride said “I do” in Paloma Blanca Style 4358 which she accented with an elegant bouquet filled with soft pink roses and hydrangeas. We asked Ashley to share more of her wedding details with us:

How did Eric propose?
The day before going on vacation, we made plans to go to Niagara Falls to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Niagara Falls has always been a special place for us because it was the first place that we went on a “date”. We are so lucky because it is a quick 20 minute drive from our house! Eric proposed overlooking the Falls on an absolutely beautiful summer day! What made this even more meaningful for me was that we would be vacationing with my family for the next week. I was so excited to get to celebrate since we live more than 6 hours away from our entire family.

How did you know your dress was the “one”?
When I went  to try on wedding dresses I have to admit, I was totally overwhelmed. Literally terrified. I was surprised to learn that I had such a great time and felt beautiful in so many dresses. I actually am the type that knows exactly what I want. There were so many dresses that certainly looked beautiful but they weren’t exactly me. I tried on my dress maybe 5 dresses in and couldn’t remember one dress after that.  As I was in the dressing room with many beautiful dresses ahead of me, I couldn’t stop thinking about and looking at the Paloma Blanca 4358. That’s how I knew it was the one.

Tell us more about your wedding day theme.
We were going for soft, romantic, but elegant. More than anything we wanted our wedding day to truly reflect who we are. While I didn’t want anything “wild”, I also didn’t want “totally typical”. Our motto for the wedding was that this was our day. If it was something we felt uncomfortable with or didn’t feel like it fit who we were, we didn’t feel obligated to do it. We made our own traditions.

What was one of your favourite wedding day moments?
Seeing my husband-to-be for the first time. I knew a lot of the nerves would subside once I saw him. I was just SO excited to see him-he is truly my best friend and I knew I would feel so much comfort in seeing him. What made this extra special was I asked our bridal party if they wanted to watch the “first look” and they were SO excited to do so- it was so sweet.
