Monique + Bertram: the Isola gown

How did you feel when you first stepped into your wedding dress?

I have never felt more beautiful and sexy than that moment. In fact, the first dress Jo gave me to try on took my breath away. I actually cried because it hit me: “You’re a bride!” Then Jo brought out my wedding dress, it was a wildcard because it was in no way on my “vision board.” But wow, I loved the feel of the satin, the way it made me feel, and my mom and sister’s reactions were priceless! I never wanted a veil, but when Jo suggested we pair it to see how it would look…oh my word! Once again, the look took my breath away. Now I’m planning to keep the veil to give to my daughter one day, God willing, or daughter-in-law 

How did you know it was ‘the One’/ what did you love most about it?

It made me feel sexy, powerful, beautiful and still whimsical at the same time. I loved the fact that it’s so light, I of course did a dance test in it! Best part: IT HAS POCKETS AND A HUGE BOW!!
