Sometimes it can be difficult to get that one dress out of your mind. That’s exactly what happened to Lin when it came to shopping for her wedding gown and she was unable to get the stunning simplicity of a certain Romona Keveza gown off her mind. After trying it on, she ended up tweaking her dress budget (just a bit) to make this modern gown with an unforgettable bustle a part of her day. But then again, some budgets are made to be broken! Be sure to view all the details of Lin and Daniel’s modern garden wedding in Georgia below.
I had always envisioned my wedding to be outside so when I found the garden at The Atrium with the Italian stone gazebo and grass & stone mosaic landscaping, I knew it would be a beautiful setting for my ceremony. I didn’t have to do much in terms of decor; leafy arrangements at the tops of the gazebo columns and chiffon drapes completed my look. I walked down the aisle to a beautiful cello & guitar duo and we ended the ceremony with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air high-five after the kiss 😉
What I loved about The Atrium is the mix of old world and modern with its neoclassical style. The outside ceremony was green and lush, whereas the reception ballroom was floor-to-ceiling glass with champagne drapes and beautiful chandeliers – it was modern and glamorous, exactly the look I was going for in my reception. We had a fun choreographed first dance that involved our entire wedding party and was the perfect opportunity to show off my dress’ unique bustling.
I was very particular about my style since I have a distinct fashion style. I was looking for something unique and modern and ended up falling in love with a Romona Keveza dress that I saw on a wedding blog one night. From then on, that was all I could think about (even though it was triple my budget!) and I ended up looking at a newer version from the spring 2013 collection. After trying on the dress multiple times, I finally admitted to myself that this was the one!
How Lin Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Gorgeous, distinctive and glamorous.
Why Lin Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
Since I have a particular style and am not very traditional, I ruled out the whole “future daughter wearing it” idea. As much as I love my dress, I would love to see it get another chance to make someone feel as spectacular as it made me feel.
