Real Bride: Laura S.

Laura was such a kind and sweet bride to work with every step of the way! She was after a gown that was beautiful and timeless with a touch of glamour and she found that in the Augusta Jones Skyler gown. We love the subtle sparkle scattered across this delicate lace. Enjoy these photos Brian Goodman captured of Laura and Anthony!

From the Bride: Anthony and I met online on He surprised me when I got home from being out of town on business and proposed in our living room. He bought a bow tie for my cat Diego and had him wearing it beside him. As I walked in the front door, Anthony was in a suit on one knee with the ring box open and Diego was next to him wearing his bow tie. Our wedding colors were coral and light blue with silver as an accent. I had one Matron of Honor, my best friend Nikki since 2nd grade, and Anthony had one Best Man. There were eight bridesmaids and eight groomsmen, two ushers, a flower girl (niece of groom) and ring bearer (nephew of groom). We didn’t necessarily have a particular theme, just a lot of orchids, (I was obsessed with my bouquet!), freesia, bling and fun! Anthony is originally from Kansas City, MO; I’m from Topeka, KS and we live in Overland Park, KS now.
