Real Wedding: Alisha + Lucas

Brides-Like-Us---2015.pngIntroducing our real bride of the month, Alisha! 

Alisha and her husband Lucas met at a mutual friend's birthday party in Washington D.C., where the two ended up in the same car on the way home. "I did not even get his number that night, just his name," Alisha says. "About two weeks later we talked on the phone and have been inseparable ever since." 










For her wedding dress, Alisha had her heart set on a different Alfred Angelo style. However, she had a change of heart during her appointment. She tried on four dresses, and the third dress was the one: Style 2507"I was determined my dress would be Alfred Angelo and nothing else," she recalls.

Alisha and Lucas' wedding theme was blush and gold. The couple didn't want anything too bold or flashy and brought their wedding to life through beautiful details. Invitations, table settings, bouquets and signage were blush and ivory. Alisha's matron of honor dyed curtains blush. The couple's cake was made by a small business owner from Alisha's hometown of Shepherdstown, West Virginia. 

A carefree and laidback bride, Alisha and her bridesmaids went to the mall the morning of her wedding to indulge. While getting ready with her family and friends, it began to rain. "I simply said, 'Rain or shine, this day will continue,'" Alisha recalls. Then the moment came. "As I walked down the aisle toward the love of my life, I saw family and friends watch me as I watched Lucas shed tears, even after seeing me for a first look," says Alisha. 

The couple's wedding reception was everything they wanted and more. Lucas is a member of fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha Inc. and wanted to celebrate in true undergrad style. Following the cutting of the cake, Lucas and his fraternity brothers serenaded Alisha. "Immediately after, they began strolling and got the party started as if we were all 21 again!" says Alisha.

Real Wedding: Jennifer + Andrew

Brides-Like-Us---2015.pngIntroducing our real bride of the month, Jennifer!

Jennifer and her husband Andrew met on OkCupid. "He sent me a message telling me how much he liked my profile, and I messaged him back," Jennifer recalls. "We exchanged several emails that first night, and we made a plan to meet the next day at noon at a local Barnes & Noble. We ended up walking around the bookstore for four hours talking and look at books. From that point forward we were together every weekend and then soon, every day." 

While wedding planning, Jennifer casually mentioned to Andrew about wanting a dress that wasn't white, and he loved the idea. Looking for a unique wedding dress led her to the Alfred Angelo website. She zeroed in on Cinderella live-action Style 252 but also saw a "vision in red" staring out at her from the computer. "To be honest, I didn't get my hopes up at first," says Jennifer. "Being a plus-sized individual, I had long since learned that wedding designers don't make pretty dresses for the big girls, but I soon found out that Alfred Angelo does! All of the dresses in every collection can be designed in any size you need. I fell in love with the red Snow White dress, and I tentatively began to dream about a wedding based around that spectacular dress." 











Jennifer and Andrew dreamt up a non-traditional Parisian wedding. Their venue, Paris on Ponce in Atlanta, had a very Moulin Rouge feel to it, and it lent itself perfectly to the couple's vision--and Jennifer's red dress. Their wedding cake was in the shape of the Eiffel Tower, their favors were given out in Eiffel Tower shaped boxes, and they had Eiffel Tower toasting glasses. "Andrew is from Australia, so we also had little Australian touches throughout, including Vegemite on toast points during cocktail hour," says Jennifer.

From the bride: "Our wedding was not what one would consider traditional. When I walked down the aisle I started to the strains of the typical wedding march, which quickly faded away into the opening of Rammstein’s Freur Frei, and with my fist raised in triumph at the top of the aisle, I gave a rebel yell and made my way toward Andrew. My brother was our officiant, and Andrew and I wrote our own vows, including our separate versions of how we had met. We were very committed to making sure the day was what we wanted and not someone else’s idea of perfection."

Jennifer and Andrew's goal was to throw a huge party that their friends and family would have fun at and enjoy. The DJ kept guests dancing all night, and everyone sipped on the couple's signature drink, the JenDrew, which was a pink lemonade margarita. 

"Sadly, maybe even poignantly, my wedding reception and breakfast the next day would mark the last time I saw my mother alive," says Jennifer. "She had been battling cancer all year but was determined to be at our wedding, and thanks to our amazing photographer we have beautiful family photographs to treasure. My mother returned home to New York after our wedding and lost her battle on August 10, 2016. No one was a bigger fan of our theme and my dress than my mom, Deborah Ann Bulck."
