Annie and Bernard took winter glamour to new heights with their winter wedding. The ballroom setting was the perfect venue for the beautifully customized Pnina Tornai wedding dress Annie wore. Crystals, orchids and an incredible eight-tier wedding cake took this black tie affair over the top, and a choreographed dance surprised and delighted Annie and Bernard’s guests.
Annie + Bernard | December 7, 2014 | Livingston, New Jersey | Dress Listing: Customized Pnina Tornai
Our ceremony took place indoors, with a winter wonderland feel. I had the florist recreate the outdoors making crystal trees complete with icicles falling off branches. The walls were uplit in a light blue to give the room the feel of the outdoors. It truly was a winter wonderland.
I wanted the reception to be full-on glam. To stick to our winter wonderland theme, I had my florist make centerpieces of Cinderella carriages made out of crystals with white orchids cascading from them. I also had another style of centerpiece that looked like a chandeliers with crystals and flowers. Swarovski would be proud! All flowers were white to go with the theme. The table linens were silver overlays that looked like floating diamonds.
Annie’s Dress Search
When I was looking for my dress I knew it had to be over-the-top. I knew the only place that would fulfill my princess-y dream would be Kleinfelds. As an avid viewer of Say Yes to the Dress, I happily walked in there and exclaimed that I needed a Pnina! I tried on three dresses that just didn’t feel right. The consultant suggested one last dress and as I tried it on she didn’t even have to zip it up, I knew it would be it!!! It was amazing!! It had everything I wanted in it and the experience was surreal when Pnina herself came out to discuss what I’d like to alter in the dress. She suggested adding some bling to give the dress a wow factor and it did. I bought the matching veil and I was in heaven.
How Annie Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Like a princess.
Why Annie Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I am selling the dress because I think its silly to let something this beautiful to just sit in the closet and collect dust. It is important for every bride to feel their very best on their big day. Besides my husband would kill me if I took up half the closet space in our tiny apartment with this dress! If you are looking for WOW factor, this dress is it.
