Ashton and Austin’s Simply Perfect Wedding~6-17-17

The morning of June 17th, 2017 was filled with absolutely chaos, angst, and uncontrollable butterflies. After over a year’s worth of preparation, the big day was finally here. The two of us has worried, days leading up to the big day, that we would overlook a tiny detail or rain would impede on our special day. All of those worries melted away the moment we saw each other. He was an emotional mess (the good kind) prior to the first look and I couldn’t stop gleaming with the thought of my husband-to-be was waiting for me. After we finally stood amongst each other, we lingered for as long as possible; we could have stood there, together, for a lifetime.

I had done countless hours of searching online for “the dress” prior to my visit to Norman’s. Ultimately, the dress that I had envisioned for my big day was decidedly not the dress of my dreams after all.

Although I began to panic, because I had no idea what was going to be the dress of my dreams, the wonderful ladies at Norman’s knew exactly what was going to bring out that “gleaming moment” in me. My simple, yet elegant, gown brought overwhelming emotion upon trying it on. I could not have been more pleased with my experience and the thoughtfulness that my consultant brought to my bridal appointment. Thank you for making this once-in-a-lifetime experience exceed my expectations.
