“When the gown came in and I went to my fitting I went 'oh gosh this is perfect,” Clara recalls, “It was exactly what I had pictured.”

Keeping everything very clean and polished, Clara opted for simple accessories to let her and her gown truly shine. On her special day, Clara decided to wear her mother's earrings and bracelet to compliment her gown. Since her father had given her mother that jewelry, it was especially meaningful to Clara to wear these romantic pieces on her own wedding day. To carry on the romantic vibes, Clara wore her hair in gorgeously cascading waves. They looked beautiful flowing down her open back and complimenting the low back of her gown so perfectly.

Even though Clara and her soon-to-be husband did a first look, Clara did want there to be a little bit of surprise when he saw her walk down the aisle. The final touch to Clara's look was a breathtaking cathedral length veil that flawlessly matched the lace on her gown. Clara had not worn the veil during the first look, so it was a lovely additional surprise for Jason who thought he had seen her whole wedding day look. 

With Clara's wedding day ensemble coming together even better than she could have ever imagined, Clara was ready to say her “I do's.” Loving how she felt in the gown and knowing how much Jason would love her in the gown as well, Clara walked down the aisle feeling beautifully confident. It was exactly how all women want to feel on their wedding day. Years later, Clara still knows she made the right decision. 

“This gown is still the best wedding dress I have ever seen,” Clara says fondly reminiscing. “For me this is still my dream dress!” 

Looking at the smile on Clara's face it is easy to see why!
