GLL: Congratulations on your recent wedding, you looked stunning! Tell us how and why you chose your GLL gown?
I had my eye on the Alexandra for a while after I got engaged. I had searched high and low but couldn’t find a dress that compared to the Alexandra. Once I finally tried it on, there was no turning back. It was perfect for me. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the gown looked on me. Choosing the Alexandra from Grace Loves Lace is the reason I felt so comfortable, confident, relaxed and so beautiful on my wedding day.
GLL: And the proposal? How did that go down?
Theron proposed in the Hinterlands in O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat in Queensland Australia. It was beautiful, simple and private. We enjoyed a weekend of hiking, and picnicking.
GLL: How did you feel on your day and how did you style your GLL look?
The Alexandra made me feel so beautiful and elegant. I loved the long train, the intricate white lace and the delicate halter neckline. It felt very “haute couture”. However, I didn’t want to look too traditional on my wedding day and wanted to add a bohemian twist. I believe the headpiece from Samantha Wills achieved this balance perfectly.
GLL: Where did you get inspiration from for your wedding?
The wedding venue set the tone for how everything was going to be styled. Bottega Farm Inn and Studio is a modern boutique hotel located in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, near Lake Okanagan. We wanted the natural beauty of the outdoors and surrounding forest to act as a backdrop and inspiration for our wedding. It was simple, open, organic and elegant. Not much needed to be added to the venue as the space offered something for everyone, both indoors and outside. The spacious great room was beautifully decorated with simple hints of gold, white linens, lots of greenery featuring a beautiful green garland on the head table. This green and white pallet was paired perfectly with the blush bridesmaid dresses and navy suits.
GLL: Describe your wedding in 3 words…
Effortless, Beautiful, Fun.
GLL: What was your most memorable moment?
Having all our friends and family travel from all over the world to celebrate this special day with us. We had been living overseas in Australia for the last two years and hadn’t seen many of our guests in quite some time. We had people visit us from 5 different countries. It was very special for us, and we felt very loved and supported.
GLL: What was your wedding song / playlist?
Georgia by Vance Joy, No One’s Gonna Love You by Band of Horses, Re;Stacks by Bon Iver, Crazy Love by Van Morrison.
GLL: And where are you honeymooning?
New York City.
GLL: What does marriage mean to you?
Marriage is two people committing to traveling in the same direction, combining goals and dreams while putting each other first. Married people love, respect, and support one another, and are stronger together. Marriage will be a lifetime of love, self-sacrifice, and adventure.
