We've got beautiful nuptials for you today in rich shades of aubergine accented with peacock feathers. An elegant affair with an elegant bride to match! Enjoy!
Chad and Deanna met on the back pew of an L.D.S. singles branch in Memphis Tennessee. On their first date, (according to Deanna) they had dinner in Memphis, then went back to Chad's friend's home to play Wii basketball with friends. While jumping into the air to make a shot, Deanna surprised even herself with her athletic prowess and broke the ceiling fan!
Deanna was mortified, but we all know that Chad was enchanted by her competitive nature.
Chad was very nervous to kiss Deanna, as he had admired her for an excruciating amount of time, but he held her close and asked if he could kiss her, she obliged. Any fears Deanna had of Chad not being an excellent kisser vanished forever.
Deanna moved to New York City about a month before Chad proposed. Chad came to the Big Apple with a big question. He was nervous as he had no idea if Deanna would say yes, but he took a chance on a gondola ride in Central Park. While being serenaded with Italian love songs, Chad turned to Deanna and told her how much she meant to him. He then asked if she would be with him forever. Deanna immediately started crying and asked "Why didn't you tell me?" To which his response was "That's the point! I'm telling you now!"
Deanna loved the style of the dresses worn by her grandmother and her great aunts in the 1950's with 3/4 length sleeves. She wanted the neck and back to show off her exquisite neck and clavicle lines, and we can see why!
"My seamstress is brilliant! I recommend her to everyone! She is positive, enthusiastic, sensitive, and absolutely helpful in every way. She carried out EXACTLY the vision I had for this dress, and more. I lived in NYC while having my dress (quite drastically) altered, and fitted precisely. Even without seeing the final product until 3 days prior to the wedding, it was totally fine. I truly trust her with anything that is to be altered."
When we asked Deanna what her favorite part of the wedding day was she told us.
"That Night......Just Kidding... But Seriously"
"The best part of our wedding day was realizing that we were married. Hopefully this emotion will be the best part for everyone -- realizing that the person you've wanted to be with forever, you are now with... FOREVER. It's like a dream. The whole day was an excellent blissful dream.
Deanna's advice: Find something with fabric you can work with, then call The Perfect Dress's exclusive seamstress and give her the details. She can make anything possible! Trust me on this!
"So ladies, give nervous boys a chance. It's way cuter if they're nervous anyway."
Congratulations Deanna and Chad! Thank You for sharing your beautiful story with us!
