Lisa + Steven | Amsale Wedding from Andrew Todes Photography

This Amsale wedding is such a splendid mix of relaxed elegance and black tie glamor.  I love how Lisa + Steven’s joy really translates in each moment throughout their day (and in their friends and family too!).  Don’t miss the detailing on Lisa’s Amsale silk taffeta strapless gown called ‘Bijou’. Complete with rouched bodice and handmade taffeta and organza flowered skirt. Such a work of art with exquisite structure.  Lisa adds, ‘This dress flatters curves with a stunning and elegant presence.  I was told by my wedding photographer that he has seen many many gowns but none with the presence of this one.’  I totally agree.  Enjoy!

Lisa + Steven | March 24, 2012 | Voorhees, New Jersey | Dress Listing: Amsale ‘Bijou’

The Ceremony
Our wedding was held on March 24, 2012 in the presence of all of our dearest friends and family at The Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees, New Jersey.  Our ceremony was held in the glass pavilion with an aisle lined with candles and at the end of the aisle an archway decorated with flowers.  What made our ceremony truly special was that we wrote it ourselves and asked two very special people in our lives to read poems.  

The Reception
Immediately following the ceremony we moved to cocktail hour with more delicious treats than you could imagine!  Our reception followed with our amazing band who brought all the energy and love in the room to life with great dancing!  

Lisa’s Dress Search
When I started the search for my wedding dress I had no particular style in mind, I described a few traits about me to the stylist and asked her to bring me a dress that met those qualities.  I found my dress during my very first shopping trip at a boutique by my home.  

How Lisa Felt in Her Wedding Dress
As soon as I put it on I knew it was perfect, I felt like the most beautiful me when I looked in the mirror.  

Why Lisa Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
The decision to sell my dress was a tough one because I love it so much, but, it is just too beautiful to sit in a box!  I want someone else to have the opportunity to love it and feel just a beautiful as I did when wearing it!
