Be ready to fall head over heels for Jacqueline’s dreamy wedding photos captured by Casey Morton Photography. Jacqueline floated down the aisle in frothy layers of misty tulle wearing her Sophia Tolli Marlene gown (Style No. Y21431). With its hand-draped bodice accented with crystal hand-beaded trim and vertical layers of tulle throughout the ball gown skirt, this unforgettable dress looked simply stunning on her.
In the brides own words…
“Being a fair skinned, red headed woman who is more curvaceous, I was finding white & ivory wedding dresses just not looking how I had envisioned to make the day magical in a sense. Sophia Tolli’s Marlene mocha dress, when I tried it on, not only made me forget all my insecurities, whilst feeling like an attractive woman, but it also felt like the dress was a part of me, in that, despite the gorgeous layers of the dress, movements were not a problem.
I told myself I would never have a strapless/sparkling/puffy style wedding dress, but this dress just took my breath away. I saw it in the magazine and then could not find a place that had stocked the specific dress. After many hours of trying on dresses in a three hour radius near Sydney and feeling ok-ish about another dress, my mother and I decided to check out one more store, and to try on a dress like the one I loved when searching online (Marlene dress) as I hadn’t tried any similar ones on. The shop at Cheboom Bridal in Port Kembla Australia had a sign saying “Be back in 5 minutes.” The clouds had come over and it had started to rain. I was persistent to head home and give up but then the door opened and the beautiful Tanya bounced out. I showed her a pic of the one dress I had longed for and asked if she had anything similar. To all our amazement she had that exact dress and in my size. After all the searching online and calling stores, an accidental visit to this amazing store produced the dress. Being a paramedic I generally don’t believe in fate, but this has changed my mind!”
