Hello lovelies!  Between all the TWD-ettes’ babies being born and the busy summer season, it has been some time since we last posted about one of our wonderful brides.  But, we are finally back to share our next FANTASTIC Bride of the Month – real TWD bride, Katherine. Her big day happened to be on one of the windiest days in November, but this ended up creating some stunning photos!  To give credit where it is due, the photos were taken by Kellie Saunders Photography.  Without further ado, we give you Katherine and Mark’s big day!

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

On our wedding day, the most memorable moment for me was saying our vows to each other.  We wrote our own vows together, so they were very special and reflected our relationship perfectly.  It was a very sweet thing to be standing in front of all our family and friends while we made these commitments to each other.

I actually had another pretty memorable moment and it occurred at our rehearsal – there was a terrible windstorm that night and it knocked out the power at our ceremony site and all the cabins the bridal party was staying in!  We did the rehearsal in the dark with flashlights, and luckily the power was back on by the time we got back from dinner.

If you could relive you day again, what would you do differently?

The wind was so strong (45 MPH!) that it ripped my veil out of my hair before I had my dress on.  While it did make for some amazing photographs, it would have been nice to see my whole look together!  If I could have toned down the weather a little bit, I would have.  Other than that, every moment was perfect.

What advice would you give to future brides?

We had a lot of out-of-town friends and family traveling in for the wedding.  We had a brunch the day after the wedding so we could see everyone again – it was really nice to spend some extra time with these people we don’t see very often with the hustle of the wedding out of the way.  If you have the opportunity to make some extra time to spend with those traveling from far away, I highly recommend it!

Why do you want to be a TWD Bride of the Month?

No wedding day would be complete without the perfect dress.  My experience at TWD was second to none – wonderful customer service, atmosphere, and selection.  The staff was patient, helpful, honest, and did not make me feel pressured or hurried.  I would recommend The White Dress to any bride!  My older sister and Maid of Honor, Natalie, was unable to make it to dress shopping – what a fun coincidence that the dress “Natalie” ended up being the one!
