Lisa and Forrest were married on May 8th, 2015, supported by close family and friends. When Lisa came wedding dress shopping at our Long Beach store, she was joined by her soon to be Mother in law, Sister law and also her Best Friend. She was looking for the perfect wedding gown for her wedding at the The Old Orange County Courthouse, which is a beautiful building inside and out. While it’s perfect for more of an informal wedding, Lisa did not want an informal wedding gown. So the hunt was on for the perfect wedding dress.
Lisa after just a few dresses decided on a beautiful fit and flare gown that was blush pink with silver appliques, ruching, a covered button detail in the back with a vneck neckline with straps. She definitely looked and felt gorgeous. The beautiful courthouse gave a great background for photos, which she can enjoy for years to come.
Lucky enough for us we were also able to find the perfect bridesmaid dress. She chose a sassy satin short dress in marine blue with a gorgeous sparkle accent on the waist and a ruched bodice. We had just received it in stock and Lisa was the first to snatch up the style. So her Bridesmaids dresses complimented her dress perfectly.
Her sister in law Franny also decided to get her prom dress from Strut. We custom ordered a light blue chiffon gown for her special night. They were a great group of ladies to assist.
Although she said, “The day wasn’t going as planned (sisters and nieces weren’t ready. Mom got lost looking for the courthouse) and I was starting to get frustrated, I was so determined to get to the courthouse, that I must’ve looked like a crazy woman angrily marching down the street to the courthouse!” But what wedding goes exactly as planned? It’s not a wedding if there aren’t a few little snags. She added, “I was just so relieved to finally get married!! During the exchanging of the rings, the best man actually pulled a prank on us and gave us ring pops instead of our actually rings! It was funny and I love that he knew that my favorite flavor was Watermelon! The reception was awesome and I loved the speeches that the best men and MOHs gave. It was so heartfelt, that I was so happy to have them be part of our big day.”
