What is a Grace woman to you?
Someone who feels beautiful just as themselves and embraces a natural, ethereal and romantic version do themselves.
Which Grace dress did you choose and how did you know it was ‘The One’?
I chose the Orla gown because it was elegant, flattering and contoured my growing body perfectly (I was 6 months pregnant when I married my husband!)

Everything was a surprise on my wedding day! Because I was expecting our first son together in the middle of our engagement, I had 2 wedding planners and a roster of vendors who took a few inspiration pics and turned my vision into a real life dream in just 7 weeks.
