Dance. That’s what Arianna and Alexey’s wedding today makes me want to do: dance! Their wedding reception has some of the best action shots from the dance floor I’ve seen! And some dresses are made to be danced in, like the ballerina-esque Reem Acra gown Arianna wore for her fab Philly wedding. You’ve got to check out this non-stop celebration that is probably best viewed with some high energy music on in the background!
The Ceremony We had a self uniting ceremony which allowed us to have a close friend officiate our wedding. We wrote our own vows and had our dads sign as witnesses on the license during the ceremony.
The Reception Due to our large, mixed families, we had our appetizers served family style on each table followed by salad and a filet/halibut duo. We had a live jazz band and then transitioned to a DJ to dance until 1:30am!
Arianna’s Dress Search I had no real image in my mind of what I wanted, but I stumbled across the Reem Acra Magnolia gown on Pinterest. From there I searched the internet to find it, as it was on the runway a few years ago. I had so many compliments on the gown, many people referring to me as a real life Degas painting!
How Arianna Felt in Her Wedding Dress Cinderella, fun and whimsical.
Why Arianna Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress I had the best evening dancing and socializing – I felt like an urban princess! So many people asked me where I got the dress and it can’t really be found anywhere. Hopefully in selling it others can enjoy it as much as I did!
