Real Wedding | Marta + Lukas

I love the way Marta describes her wedding day…feeling like a star on the “red carpet” as she waked down the aisle to marry the man of her dreams. It’s the way each bride should feel on her special day. It’s no wonder that Marta enjoyed her moment in the spotlight…she looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous Vera Wang wedding gown.  Read more below to discover how this New York couple created a lifetime of memories at their joyous celebration!

Marta + Lukasz | June 25th, 2011 | Maspeth & Long Island City, New York

The ceremony

We chose small and intimate church for our wedding, somehow this particular church became important for me. Even though it was a regular wedding ceremony, for us it was so special! Besides, I always wondered what it feels like to be the bride walking down the aisle, and I have to admit I felt like I was on the red carpet! 

The reception

The reception took place in “Renaissance Event Hall” in Long Island City, alongside 70 guests. It is a unique place with an elegant and cozy interior. Planning the wedding (as each bride knows) can make you go crazy, so our main intention was to have fun no matter what. So we shared this precious moment with each other and the rest of the guests! We were dancing, eating, drinking, laughing – the love was in the air! All good things come to an end and so did our wedding. But our memories from that day will stay with us forever!

How Marta felt in her wedding dress

Exceptional, Chic, Glamorous

Why she decided to sell her wedding dress

Because I married my husband for life, so I don’t need it anymore. As much as I would love to wear it again there is no other occasion. It is my hope that another girl will feel as special in it as I did.
