After trying on a few dresses, Jen had finally come to her last gown: a lovely Pnina Tornai A-line gown with floral lace corset, keyhole back, and chiffon skirt with a slit in the middle. It was love at first sight. Jen walked out to show her mother the gown who immediately proclaimed that that this dress was the one!

“Everything was perfect on that gown,” Jen recalls.

Much to her delight, Jen's unique gown struck the perfect balance of romantic and seductive. Slightly worried about the illusion corset being too sexy after showing pictures to her friends, Jen's decision to leave the corset as it was was reaffirmed at her fitting. It was absolutely lovely when paired with the lace, and it perfectly complemented her keyhole back. The lace also helped to soften the gown and give the dress a more bridal feel while the slit in the chiffon skirt made the gown fun and flirty.

Lastly, to complete her bridal look, Jen wore a stunning floral crown on top of her gorgeous and beachy hair-do. Initially wearing a silk flower crown, Jen knew she had to wear the real deal after deciding upon tropical Hawaii as her wedding setting.

With the gown being the statement that Jen wanted for her wedding, she decided to keep the jewelry to a minimum. In love with the lace detailing on her cap sleeves and around the neckline of her gown, Jen opted for simple stud earrings to compliment the dress. Feeling flawless in her bridal ensemble, Jen was ready to marry her true love.

“I felt like it (the gown) was perfect! I don't think it could have fit any better,” Jen remembers fondly, “I felt like the most beautiful person in the world!”

With the sun shining down on them, and the wind blowing the chiffon skirt of her gorgeous gown, Jen wed her love, Matthew, and said aloha to her happily ever after.
