How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My experience with Eleganza was amazing!  I needed my wedding dress made during covid so I was extremely disappointed I couldn't take the flight to Scotland like I always wanted to so that I could select my custom dress and design in person.  They made it so incredibly easy to build my custom dress all from my home just using Zoom and emails.  They made my feel so comfortable throughout the entire process always taking their time with me, answering questions, and making sure all of the little details were covered.  My dress turned out to be everything I dreamed of and more.

 

Let’s go back to the start - what was your engagement like?

Corey proposed to me while we were in Saint Lucia! It was a complete surprise and completely unexpected.  He told me that they were having a cocktail hour up on the rooftop area before dinner and to dress up nicely so we could attend before we were to eat.  When I walked up the stairs there wasn't anyone there so I was really confused until I turned the corner and there was an entire area set up with a ton of flowers made into a circle, candles, and my favorite song playing.  He walked me to the middle of the circle, got on one knee, and proposed.

 

Tell us all about your custom Eleganza wedding gown.

My dress was beautifully made from both lace and crepe.  It was tight throughout until it hit the bottom and it turned into the most beautiful train I have ever seen with buttons going all the way down from my lower back to the end of the train.  Everybody was in awe of my dress and couldn't believe how perfectly it fit and flowed on me.

 

 

Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette for your wedding decor?

My inspiration was chic/romantic. I went with the chic/classy look using blush pinks, rose golds, black, and gold.  I wanted to also give it a romantic feel so we included hundreds of candles, floating hearts in the lake made out of roses, and confetti and sparklers.

 

 

Tell us more about your wedding day!

We had a surprise performer (Montell Jordan) sing "This is how we do it" which was SUCH an amazing prize and so much fun.  We had fun stations for everyone to visit (crazy milkshakes, funnel cakes, lattes and coffee, cigar bars, fireshow bartenders, etc.) so there was something for everyone.  My husband surprised me with his present during dinner time and got me a puppy!  I surprised my husband with his present right after the speeches and had a video montage made with all of his favorite actors and sports stars giving video cameo shoutouts and we edited it into one long 10 minute video which was SO much fun for everyone to see.

 

 

 

 

What was the most memorable moment?

Exchanging our vows was my most memorable moment.  They were so deeply personal and perfectly described the immense amount of love we have for each other and its a moment in our wedding I will never forget.

 

 

 

 

Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day? Why is this image so special to you?
My favorite picture is us walking down the aisle after we were officially husband and wife.  The joy on our faces was captured so perfectly and everytime I look at that picture I remember exactly how I felt in that moment.
