In the words of today’s featured bride, Laura + Edward’s wedding in Ojai Valley, California was ‘simple, elegant and romantic’. We love the off-white florals, enchanting leafy greenery, the beautiful wedding cake topped with peaches and peonies…and our favorite, Laura’s romantic Naeem Khan, Portofino wedding dress. And we totally agree with you Laura, the delicate details of this gown are just breathtaking!
Laura + Edward | April 18, 2015 | Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, Ojai, California | Dress Listing: Naeem Khan, Portofino
We were married under a gorgeous old oak tree, a beautiful floral chuppah with lanterns and flowers lining the aisles. It was a very sentimental and traditional ceremony, we wrote our own vows and a life long family friend officiated.
Our simple, elegant and romantic theme continued from the ceremony to the reception. But the reception was also wild and fun. We had a 10 piece band that was outstanding and they set the mood for a high energy party.
Laura’s Dress Search
I must have tried on over 60 dresses in both NYC and LA. When I tried on this Naeem Khan, Portofino gown, it lit up the room. It outshone all the others. The fit was absolutely perfect, I barely had to do any alterations. And it fit my personality to a T – simple silhouette, romantic sweetheart neckline and flow of the gown, and the sparkly excitement from the embellishment, but done so subtly that it just whispers. And best of all, it was comfortable!
How Laura Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Gorgeous, Elegant, Myself
Why Laura Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I know I won’t wear it again and I want someone else to enjoy it. I felt so lucky and hope to pass that along to the next owner of the dress.
