I gave you a little sneak peek of this gorgeous wedding earlier today, but it’s time to get to the really good stuff. I first saw this wedding while shooting a From Inspiration to Reality feature with Justin and Mary Marantz. All of the vendors stood around the camera gushing and gushing and gushing about this stunning bride and her amazing sense of style. I basically begged to feature it on SMP and I am so happy that we finally get to do just that!
From Justin and Mary…
The wedding was actually in Romance, WV! I know….it doesn’t get any better than that. The theme was an Audrey Hepburn/Going to the Chapel type of wedding. Rachel’s dress looked entirely different when she bought it, and she had a tailor chop about four feet off of it, take it apart and put it all back together again to make it the incredible tea length one she ended up with!
Rachel actually wore two pairs of shoes that day: some insanely fierce vintage Christian Louboutins for the ceremony and some sassy red Kate Spade’s for the reception. The jewelry for the whole shebang was from Tiffany’s. Terry also sent over a HUGE Tiffany’s amethyst ring that morning for Rachel to wear as her something new. Terry’s band had to be specially made for him because he broke his knuckle when he was younger. So they came up with this James Bond worthy hinge ring with a secret release. It’s the only one like it in the world and had to be rushed in the day before the wedding!
SO freaking gorgeous it’s almost hard to believe. We have some incredible details coming up next, along with a full vendor and source list so that you can start booking right away!
