Real Wedding | Katie + Dan

Katie is truly a vision to behold in her gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress. The strapless gown with soft tiered layers flattered beautifully, and the sparkling jeweled belt showed off her perfect shape. This elegant gown set the tone for her sophisticated city wedding…classic and timeless, yet current and stylish. Don’t miss Katie’s convincing (and humorous) argument for selling your wedding gown. Who could keep a dress this amazing locked away?

Katie + Dan | October 15, 2011 | New York City

The ceremony

We had a traditional Jewish ceremony at Capitale.

The reception

Our reception was black tie, featuring dinner and dancing  with the Hank Lane Band, at Capitale.

How Katie found her dream wedding dress

I started my dress search with no particular style in mind, and ended up finding the one on my first day looking!  The runner-up was a fitted, tiered lace Rivini gown, completely opposite style.

How she felt in her wedding dress

Glamorous, modern, confident.

Why she decided to sell her wedding dress

After considering framing it in a shadow box to hang in my potential future huge closet like one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills did (no one was too supportive of that plan), I admitted to myself that I would never actually wear it again and decided I would be happy for it to have a new life and make another bride feel as amazing on her wedding day as it made me feel on mine.
