Sophia Tolli bride Ona chose “Monaco” Y11712, a sleeveless misty tulle over satin fit and flare gown with gathered illusion shoulder straps and hand beaded lace appliqués adorning the bodice and skirt for her wedding in Spain. Ona thoughtfully wrote to us about her special day, see her words below:
“I am very excited to share some photos of our wedding in Madrid, Spain. My husband is Spanish, and I am Filipino-American, so our special day was like a coming together of cultures. We had our closest family and friends from all over the world (Philippines, France, Italy, USA, other cities in Spain) celebrate with us by partying all night and into the morning hours.
We wanted our wedding to be meaningful, classic, simple but elegant, organized and not pretentious. But to make it unique, we infused our personal touch into it – our love of movies, literature, sci-fi, dungeons and dragons, anime and more. Instead of a guest book, we had a guest map. We gave away personally designed Leia & Han Solo baseball caps to specially picked couples. I am a graphic designer, so it was important to me that my husband’s ideas get executed well. We were a good team in making the crazy ideas for our wedding happen.
My gown is Sophia Tolli Monaco. I purchased it from Blossom’s Bridal in Dublin, CA. I love how comfortable and lightweight the gown was; and how elegant, sexy and glamorous it made me feel. The embellishments were so beautiful, and didn’t overpower or make the gown look heavy. The classic gown made me feel like it was custom made especially for me.”
