The Day I Found My Dress

February 2nd, 2017. ✨

I tried on so many dresses prior to this day, but always knew in my heart I would end up wearing Liz Martinez. My mom and I were planning a trip to the UK to try on her designs when she posted on her Instagram that she was having a trunk show in New York City. My heart skipped a beat and we booked an appointment right away. Her whimsical, light-hearted, unconventional dresses had always suited my personality and style. When I realized her background (Israeli) was similar to mine, I knew that had subconsciously resonated with me, too. 

Fun fact: I actually pinned this exact dress onto my Pinterest board before I was even engaged!

I'm happy I can finally share these photos as it was one of the most special days ever which included belly laughs, a little crying, some of my favorite women in the whole wide world, and of course, celebratory drinks. 🍸👰🏽

I fell in love with the cut of this dress, first and foremost. I never pictured myself wearing a ballgown as I knew I'd be dancing my butt off during my reception. I only dreamed of having an open back, and the rest was up in the air. I put the Sofia dress on and I just knew I felt the way I wanted to feel. Sexy, but not too sexy where my dad wouldn't have approved. The floral appliqué was organic. I loved that it wasn't too symmetrical and didn't seem like a "pattern". The bottom made me feel like I was floating on a cloud. The chiffon bow was the icing on the (wedding) cake. 

Hi, grandma!
