Welcome back lovelies!  It’s another exciting edition of Bride of the Month!  And we cannot help but gush about our next bride, our very own TWD-ette Marissa!  If you have ever come into The White Dress, you have probably met Marissa at some point.  Everyone here was so excited for her and couldn’t wait to help her pick out her dress.  With so many choices, Marissa had a tough decision ahead of her.  But we think you can agree that she made an excellent choice and made for a beautiful bride.  Before we get started, we want to give credit for the amazing photos: Matt and Ashley Photography, you rock!  Now let’s get started with Marissa and Kyle’s love story!

{Meet Marissa.}

{The Groom.}

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

There were so many memories that I’ll never forget!  The most memorable moment had to be when Kyle arranged a special song for me at the reception.  His brother had learned how to play it on the piano and included everyone in it.  All the guests had lyrics to the song on their tables to sing along.  It was a complete surprise!

{Getting ready for the big day!}

The other moment that sticks out in my mind is after we walked down the aisle as a married couple.  We were able to have a quiet and more intimate moment with only our closest friends and family to really appreciate that we were officially husband and wife.

{The Gentlemen.}

{Such gorgeous ladies!}

{Walk down the aisle.}

As a dance teacher, the dancing also really sticks out in my mind too!  So much fun! {TWD Note: We agree!  The dance floor was hopping and SO much fun!}

{First kiss and walk as husband and wife.}

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

I would have tried to speak to more of our guests from out of town.  We have friends fly in from all over the world, and we were so busy that we never even had the chance to say hello!

{Looking like a dream in a gorgeous ballgown!}

{We love the bow!}

{We cannot get enough of Marissa’s ah-mazing shoes.}

What advice would you give to future brides?

Do not leave anything to the day before or you will find yourself stressed out and exhausted as you’re desperately trying to finish decorations at 2 o’clock in the morning the day of!

{Such a happy couple!  Marissa is laughing here because the wind was making her awesome poufy skirt blow around.  We love it!}

{Such elegant decorations.}

{The surprise moment for Marissa.}

{First dance as Mr. & Mrs.}

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

Why wouldn’t I?  I spend most of my days at TWD with my “White Dress” family, and I love it!  I couldn’t be happier to be a TWD Bride of the Month.

{TWD Note: Marissa made a truly beautiful bride and we love having her as part of the TWD family!}

{Congrats to the Mr. and Mrs.!}
