2/30: Outfit. You only get to wear that long white dress once.
“You saw me wear white by pale candlelight, I said forever to what lies ahead.”
~I Am, Nichole Nordeman
My wedding gown was custom-made by my friend Ivy‘s Lola, who, for the record, was also the one who made the dresses I wore to my JS Prom, Graduation Ball, and Debut. There were just too many bridal gowns and couturiers out there, too many choices off-the-rack too. And trust me when I say that I looked far and wide for the perfect dress (and dress maker). At the end of the day, I just knew that Lola Doming was the only one I can entrust my wedding gown to, and I was right. Empire cut, halter-strap, laces and beads, and a flowy, A-line chiffon skirt — the dress was everything I imagined it to be.
It’s amazing how God takes care of even the smallest of details in His grand scheme of things, you know? (:
