This Oscar De La Renta Gown Set the Scene for a Classic Seaside Wedding

Oscar De La Renta, you’ve done it again. You’ve designed a gown beyond my wildest wedding dreams and “obsessed” is an understatement. Luckily, we have the images from Hunter Ryan Photo to stare at forever, plus every perfect wedding detail designed by Anna Lucia Events. Let’s head to The Vault and let the pinning begin.


From The Bride…Our marriage is a dream come true in every way, starting with the big day that was more than we could have ever imagined. Friends, family, Anna, Meghan, Noor (of Anna Lucia Events), Tiffany & Cody (of Hunter Ryan Photo) and David & Danny (of Salon Tease) helped make our dream into a reality.

We exchanged our wedding vows at Trinity By The Cove Episcopal Church in Naples, Fl. on Sept. 12, 2015. A black-tie reception of dining and dancing followed a Private Club in Naples. I selected an Oscar de la Renta silk mikado gown and an Homa silk organza veil, and wore my grandmother Shirley’s sapphire bangle.

We met in the fall of 2005 at Vanderbilt University. We remained friends for seven years, even though we always knew we’d found “the one”.  We began dating in 2012, when I soon moved from New York City to Dallas, and became engaged in October of 2014. We were married in September of the following year, and are so thrilled for life together forever.

Yacht Club

From Hunter Ryan Photo… Marissa & Alex had their destination wedding amidst the boat docks of the Naples Yacht Club. Not wanting to be over the top nautical, Marissa worked with Isn’t She Lovely Florals to design a tablescape that reflected a pretty neutral palatte but still embodied the soft seaside vibe.
