Real Bride: Tori B.

When Tori first came into Altar to shop for her gown, she knew she was interested in a gown with some lace detail. She then fell in love with our Eveline gown which is a beautiful blush Chantilly lace bodice and layered soft tulle skirt with the most exquisite detail along the hem. The bodice of the Eveline gown has textured lace with beading along the neckline. Giving her gown a little more of a contemporary feel, Tori chose to have the designer add some extra blush crystal beading along the waist of her gown as well. We love this attention to detail which made her gown truly her own! We hope you enjoy Tori’s and Nick’s day as much as we did!








From the bride: Nick and I actually met in middle school! We technically “dated” in the 7th grade. Unfortunately our relationship never made it to the 8th grade. We went to high school and college together but we were never in the same circle of friends. We bumped into each other after college graduation and have been together ever since. Nick proposed two years later on a trip to Las Vegas.

For our wedding day we knew we wanted to keep things simple and neutral. Hotel Sorella is  gorgeous and did not need much sprucing up! The bridesmaids’ dresses were probably my favorite! They wore Watters gowns with blush, silver, and champagne sequined lace bodices and A-line skirts which really complimented my blush dress.  The groomsmen and ushers wore classic black tuxes with black bow ties.  To give Nick a unique look he wore a charcoal tux with a black bow tie. 

Our favorite part of the whole night was the reception. The food was exceptional and we had a killer band. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was on the dance floor until way past midnight! It was such a blast to have all of our closest friends and family all together at one time. We could not have asked for a better night!
