Real Bride: Kellie McKnight

As described in our newsletter, Kellie and Ivan were married in Puerto Rico on May 25, 2014 after knowing each other for over a decade and dating for seven. Through the years, multiple deployments, major surgery and a long recovery period they made it through it all. We are so happy to share this magical wedding, especially because Kellie is one of our own CBA consultants. Kellie wore a Badgley Mischka gown, Peter Langner veil, Cheryl King bracelet, Maria Elena earrings and rosary… plus a custom garter made by our seamstresses.

The bride and groom got married among family and friends in a secret garden ceremony, in a hidden park in Old San Juan. Their reception took place in one of the oldest buildings in the city, Hotel El Convento, a converted convent. Everything about their day was a celebration of their roots and the essence of their “old world” romance.

Real Bride: Christin Parras

Last week we featured a very special bride in our December newsletter! Our fantastic bride Christin was so wonderful to work with and her intimate Greek nuptials were just as special as the bride herself! From a cozy church ceremony  tucked away in the Greek mountains to an authentic restaurant reception filled with food and dancing, Christin and Bradley’s wedding was definitely a family affair. The bride even rode to church on a donkey! Here’s a peek into the newlywed’s wedding day…
