Miss USA Nia Sanchez’s Convertible Wedding Dress is Everything

Where does a former Miss USA go dress shopping for her wedding day? At Kleinfeld’s on Say Yes To the Dress, of course. She chose a convertible Pnina Tornai for a traditional ballgown look at the ceremony turned curve hugging silhouette at the reception and to say we’re obsessed is putting it lightly. The Bloom Of Time designed the florals, Cake and Punch planned the day, and Natalie Schutt + Theater 10 Films captured it all. Watch Nia’s SYTTD dress shopping adventures tonight at 9:00 EST/6:00 PST on TLC!

From Natalie Schutt PhotographyFormer Miss USA, Nia Sanchez married the love of her life, actor Daniel Booko, in a fairytale-esque wedding that took place in her hometown of Temecula, California on October 17, 2015. Temecula Creek Inn’s Stone House was the perfect setting for this enchanting wedding which was attended by A-list celebrities and other former Miss USA beauty contestants. Nia surprised everyone on her big day with a convertible dress that she chose during her taping of Say Yes To The Dress at Kleinfield’s in New York City. The episode and wedding will tonight!

From the beautiful lounge areas, to the fun bridal parties, to the oh so special first touch & prayer, the day was absolutely timeless and magical. Daniel’s father officiated the wedding, which took place in the gorgeous glimmer of golden light. The entire day was beyond wonderful.

The Ultimate Modern Wedding Inspiration

How incredibly beautiful is this inspiration?! It’s enough to make anyone want to say “I do” again. From the Bride’s beautiful updo, to the lovely all white bouquet, Blueberry Photography has captured all that (and SO much more), and we’ve got it all just waiting for you to favorite in The Vault!

From Blueberry PhotographyThe Art of Broken Pieces

“… to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part.”

Often when we talk about marriage, we focus on the joyful memories when love is most abundant and overflowing. What we tend to neglect are the moments of doubt, anger, sadness, and fear. It is in these times from which a true love is built, through the prospect of letting a relationship fade away. We reflect on the totality of it all, from conception to the hypothetical future, and the authenticity of each other’s emotions. Here is where we decide to give up or to keep pushing forward, learning each other’s quirks, knowing when to let go of an argument, to discern pettiness from principle, and to understand how to be a selfless companion. This is the kiln that forges the vessel where love remains.

That vessel is what we hope to exemplify with Kintsugi, the Japanese art of rejoining broken ceramic pieces with gold lacquer. The philosophy behind this practice embraces values of restoration and finding beauty in imperfection. The photo shoot we present to you is a blend of simple design with a complex message that lies within the gold-filled cracks of each ceramic plate.

Want a Dreamy Engagement Session? Take Cues from This Couple!

We’re suckers for a dreamy, light-filled photo sessions and Sally Pinera always delivers. She took to the golden hills of Malibu with the sweetest soon-to-be’s and every last image is sitting in The Vault. Go treat yourself to a little pre-weekend eye candy treat…we won’t tell.

From The Bride…Michael and I met through a modern-day dating app where we both laid eyes on each other before swiping “yes.” Several text messages later, we had our first date at a unique Japanese restaurant in Santa Monica. The date was full of conversation that was comfortable and lighthearted, it was like seeing a friend we’ve known for years. Our connection was instant and from day one, we couldn’t wait to make memories and grow in love together.

Since the first day I met him, Michael has been such a romantic. Throughout our dating he would quietly write notes in his phone anytime I would mention things I loved (food, wine, travel, etc) and surprised me with adventures along the way. After a year of dating, Michael surprised me with a vacation to Jamaica, where I wondered if this is where he would plan to pop the question. Little did I know that the weekend before our vacation, when Michael took me to Santa Ynez, CA for a weekend wine tour, he had secret plans to pop the question. After taking me to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Ynez, we drove along the valley where Michael turned off the road to show me a beautiful lake nearby. As the sun was setting, Michael surprised me with a proposal full of tears and laughter where I couldn’t wait to say, “yes” to him again.

When we were engaged, we knew there was no better place to have our intimate wedding and engagements than in southern California. We immediately fell in love with Malibu, CA with its rolling golden hills, vibrant beaches, and lush vineyards. I can hardly believe it’s a month away till we become husband and wife, and couldn’t be more excited for our wedding at Saddlerock Ranch.
