Expressing her desires to Pnina, Ally looked to the famous designer and close friend to guide her in making the best decisions for her gown. Pnina added a touch of magic to Ally's original idea and the result was breathtaking. To wed her love Jason, Ally would walk down the aisle in a captivating drop-waisted gown with beautifully romantic Chantilly and Alençon lace, a sexy “cat-eye” sweetheart neckline, illusion corseted bodice with a tulle lace up closure in the back and luscious ruffles that began on the sides of the gown and exploded into full blown dramatic glamour in the back. It was everything Ally could've dreamt of and more! 

While gown one was grand and romantic, gown two was fit for a bombshell ready for a good time. Equally as fabulous as the first gown, the gown that Ally and Pnina designed for Ally to wear to her reception was a sexy stunner meant for partying the night away.This gown was all about the satin and the bling which was exactly what Ally was hoping for. Ally's reception gown was a dazzling satin mermaid gown with a plunging V-neckline and exquisite crystal embellishments that also formed a seductive and eye-catching keyhole back. 

“I always love to wear stuff stuff fitted and show off my shape,” Ally explains, “The gown accentuated my body in all the right places. I absolutely loved it!” 

Fun fact: the crystals used for Ally's gown were used for the first time on her second dress and were later prominently featured in Pnina’s 2018 Fragile Collection. Hugging her curves like a second skin and shining brighter than stars in the night sky, all eyes were on Ally in her captivating and alluring gown. 

These two extravagant gowns fit in wonderfully with the luxurious old-world vibe that Ally and Jason were going for. The voluminous ruffles on Ally's wedding gown were perfectly complemented by the elegance and dramatic nature of the cathedral in which they wed. It filled the space splendidly and mirrored the grand nature of the venue. Ally's reception gown carried on the old-world vibes later that day as Ally and Jason danced the night away at The Carltun. A marvelous and opulent venue filled with old-timey rooms like cigar lounges and wine rooms, Ally's ravishing gown felt right at home in the opulent estate. 

What really made these gowns so special though? According to Ally it was all about love!

“I felt magical. I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt in my life and it was special to me because of all of the love that was put into the gowns by Pnina, the team, and everyone involved,” Ally reminisces, “I was surrounded by love!”

Covered in love from head to toe and ready to marry the love of her life, Ally's beauty was beaming from the inside out as she said yes to her forever love.
