All eyes were on radiant bride Jessica as she walked down the aisle, sparkling from head to toe, ready to marry her love Rocco Guarino on November 5, 2016 in NYC. Wearing a gown that would melt a bling queen's heart, Jessica was beaming all day long, starting at the wedding and throughout her glamorous reception at the Plaza Hotel.
A longtime admirer of Pnina Tornai and lover of bling, Jessica knew that if she ever had the chance, she would be a Pnina Bride. Therefore, when it came time for her to go wedding gown shopping, Jessica knew there was only one place to go: the Pnina Tornai Boutique at Kleinfeld Bridal. With her mind set on being a trendy winter bride, Jessica was ready to find her dream gown.
Initially adamant about not wanting to wear a ball gown, Jessica stuck to her usual style of sexy when she began trying on gowns. It did not take long before Jessica realized that none of the gowns were giving her the bridal feeling she was after. Advised by her sister to keep an open mind, Jessica tried on a crystal embellished ball gown that turned her world upside down.
“When I put on the ball gown – that was the only thing that made me feel like a bride,” Jessica recalls.
After a complete departure from her normal style, Jessica immediately fell in love with this extravagant ball gown. There was only one thing missing that Jessica had wanted to complete her bridal look: sleeves! With a solution in mind, Jessica's consultant went back into the Pnina Tornai Boutique and returned with a crystal-embellished bodysuit to complete Jessica's look! In love with the couture bodysuit that gave her the sleeves and extra bling she desired, Jessica said yes to her unexpected dream gown.
Wearing more than enough bling for a queen, it comes as no surprise that while strolling NYC with her new hubby Jessica drew a lot of attention.
“I felt like a celebrity for the day! It was like nothing I've ever felt before,” explains Jessica.
Having her reception at the Plaza Hotel in NYC, Jessica picked the perfect gown for her venue. Her satin ball gown with its floral embellishments combined with the crystal embellished bodysuit shined and sparkled as she danced under the spotlights in the grand ballroom. With white, gold, and bling all around, this lavish bride tied the whole affair together with her stunning bridal look.
“I never thought I would be so lucky as to have the wedding and dress of my dreams,” remembers Jessica. Looking at the smile on her face and the love in her eyes, it's clear that Jessica got the wedding and gown of her dreams, and so much more!
