Upon seeing the final sketch of her future wedding gown Kira and her mother were sold! As discussed, Kira's new custom wedding gown would have the lace and embroidery of the sheath gown, which would be extended down the entirety of the dress, including the train. It would have an ivory underlay instead of the nude lining. Kira decided to keep the illusion back to the gown since it added some edge to her look. Lastly, and to Kira's delight, the gown would have the extravagant mermaid flare of the second gown giving Kira the silhouette she desired.

With her waterfront venue in mind, Kira knew that her unique mermaid gown would go wonderfully with the scene her and her fiance hoped to set for their wedding day. Going for a mystical and magical garden theme complete with white flowers, greenery and fairy lights everywhere this would truly be an occasion to remember.

Speaking of remembering, Kira didn't remember until three weeks prior to the wedding that she still needed a veil! Luckily a quick trip to Kleinfeld Bridal took care of that. A trip to the jeweler and Kira was set with her statement tear drop earrings for her wedding day. That was the only jewelry Kira felt she needed for her wedding day since her gown was so exquisitely detailed.

When Kira's wedding day came around she knew she had chosen the right gown. During her final fitting Kira showed her gown to some of her loved ones and their reaction was the priceless response she needed that let her know all the decisions made up to this point were spot on. It was now time for her to wear the most important gown of her life and she could not have been more ecstatic to do so.

“I cried when I put it on and I'm really not that kind of girl. I felt like that dress really had been made for me,” Kira reminisces. “When it all came together I just felt happy and special; I felt I looked the way I had always envisioned for my wedding throughout the entire process.”

Full of all the emotions a bride wants to feel on their wedding day in their wedding dress, Kira felt like her vision had come true. Kira walked down the aisle in her custom gown and said, “I do” to happiness, love and her very own, one-of-a-kind forever after.
