We took lots of photos and then headed to Town Center in Boca to Saks Fifth Avenue. We saw a few dresses there, but nothing said, "I'm the one".
We came home and waited for Alfred Angelos to open in town and got THE dress. Size zero and then taken in. The dress has a beautiful snowflake in pearls, crystals and silver thread which had to be removed and replaced for the alterations. I am in awe of the seamstress's ability. She did a fantastic job.
The bride was beautiful as you can see. We had a lot of fun shopping and taking photos, then getting hair and make up done on THE day. Finally, the wedding. The only thing traditional about the wedding was the dress. Ash & Alan didn't want fussy and stuffy, they wanted a party for friends and family. They are both big movie buffs so there were alot of references to movies throughout. Ash's engagement ring is a wide gold band with a Superman emblem engraved in it. Their wedding rings are inscribed "Density" from the movie Back to the Future. The cake topper was the Question from the latest Batman movie and Supergirl. The bridesmaids entered to the Star Wars theme. Charlie, Ash & I entered to the theme from The Princess Bride.
A man I used to work for also likes the movie The Princess Bride and was willing to do the wedding scene from the movie. People were in hysterics he did such a great job.
Thebrass band also goes to university that Ash and Alan attend and being friends, the evening of music was their gift.
My sisters gift was to cater the wedding and did a fantastic job. Alan's parents provided the linens, arch, and other decorations.
All in all it was great and here is the beginning of Ash & Alan's photo album.
Again, thanks for tuning in. Until next time.
