Introducing to you, our beautiful bride Genesis and her husband Juan. Genesis and Juan got married on September, 10th, 2021 at the Vineyard at Mt. Naomi Farms in Hyde Park, Utah. Her theme was classic and rustic. She’s the first to be featured in her lace mermaid wedding gown with off the shoulder straps!
This wedding venue holds special meaning to them. Genesis wrote us, “We chose this venue because my parents had visited the venue a while back and my mom always said that she wanted to renew her vows in that venue. Unfortunately, my mom passed away from cancer about a year before I got married and I just thought that it would be the perfect place for me to have my wedding. The venue was absolutely beautiful. I know that my mom was present that day because in the midst of the storm that was happening outside, there was a moment of sunlight that was shining perfectly on my husband and I.“
Genesis brought her mom and her best friend to shop for her wedding gown in our Long Beach, California bridal store. She came shopping at Strut knowing exactly what she was looking for! She originally fell in love with her wedding gown when she saw a photo of it posted on our social media. If that’s not love at first sight, we don’t know what is! She said yes that very day to her gorgeous, off the shoulder, mermaid fit gown. Detailed with intricate scrollwork lace, and tulle off the shoulder sleeves.
Genesis is actually the FIRST bride we’ve ever featured wearing this lace mermaid wedding gown and we cannot get enough of her photos. She absolutely rocked it. Her bridal look was finished off with a cathedral length veil that matched the lace on her wedding dress perfectly. It truly brought the entire look together.
When asked about her bridal gown shopping experience, Genesis wrote to us, “I absolutely loved my shopping experience at Strut! Riannan made me feel so comfortable about being tall and plus size. I went into the store already knowing which dress I wanted and I was so glad you guys had it in store for me to try on. My visit at Strut is one of the most special moments that I had in this entire journey of planning my wedding because my mom was able to see me in the dress. She passed away a few weeks later. My best friend captured the moment my mom saw me in the dress.“
These photos give us all the feels! Not only can you feel the love that radiates between Genesis and Juan, but we just know her mom was there so proud to watch their entire day come together.
