Mary, Star of the Sea + Point Loma Naval Base at Ballast Point
“We incorporated so much of our family into our day…” the bride Kelly recalls, “from participants in the ceremony, to the toasts from our families, the necklace my husband gave to my daughter at the reception, we were constantly surrounded with loving family and friends.”
Kelly and Nathan were married on bright and sunny summer afternoon in La Jolla California. Wearing a Reem Acra gown purchased at a local favorite, M Bride, the couple traveled in style by coasting through their wedding day in a vintage red convertible.
“The amount of fanfare we received with people waving and honking was really special…” Kelly says, “I felt like we were in a parade and it was such an amazing experience to be riding down the road on a perfectly sunny California day, having a private moment before the reception to just relish in our ceremony and vows we just exchanged.”
When asked how she knew her gown was The One, Kelly says,” I knew the gown was the one when the bridal owner described it as “very Jackie O”. It was effortlessly classic and timeless with impeccable detail. The silk and lace were perfect together and it was beautifully made.”
The bride ultimately wants to preserve her gown and veil for future generations and when we asked why she chose Elegance Preserved, she simply replies with ” I trusted and appreciated the level of excellence that was describes by other bride’s reviews.”
Best wishes to Kelly and Nathan!
