In the beautiful and romantic city of Florence, Italy, Ramez Fahmy and Sarah Salama exchanged their vows at the Chiesa di Ognissanti Church in front of family and friends. Feeling confident in her sultry lace gown, Sarah was radiant as she walked down the aisle.
Sarah's road to the perfect gown was not an easy one. It's not that she was looking for an outrageous dress. Sarah simply wanted a lace gown that was the perfect mix of classic and sexy, preferably with a low back. After trying on plenty of gowns at other bridal salons, Sarah was beginning to think she was never going to find her dream wedding dress. That is when Sarah decided to make the trip to Kleinfeld Bridal and try her luck there.
Sarah arrived with her family at the famous bridal salon hoping to find her ideal wedding gown amongst their massive selection of dresses. Sarah's bridal consultant pulled some gowns for her to try on. The appointment was starting to look like the other appointments when Sarah finally got to the last gown. It was a lacy Pnina Tornai gown that looked like it might be exactly what Sarah was looking for.
Sarah slipped on the gown and felt confident enough in the dress to show it to her family. Sarah walked out in a lace, sheath Pnina Tornai gown with a deep v-neckline and open back. Already falling in love with the gown, Sarah waited to see her family's reaction. To Sarah's delight, her family loved the gown as well! With her family's blessing and feeling confident that this was the gown she had been searching for, Sarah said yes to the dress!
“I didn't think it was going to happen for me but thankfully it did,” Sarah reminisces.
The gown was exactly what Sarah had been looking for. The ideal blend of classic and sexy, this gown hugged Sarah in all the right places while still maintaining the level of classiness Sarah desired. To make the gown more suited to Sarah's taste, there were a few customizations made to the gown. For starts, the boning in the bodice of the gown was extended down the torso to give the gown more structure. A see-through panel was also added to the deep-V neckline so that it would not be so revealing. Lastly, the train was extended by another foot to give Sarah an extra boost of glamour as she walked down the aisle.
To accessorize her gown, Sarah chose to wear a gorgeous cathedral length veil that was wonderful for covering her open back during her wedding ceremony. Sarah did decide to wear her hair up though so as to not hide the alluring back of her gown for the reception. The only other jewelry that Sarah wore were earrings that her parents gifted her for her special day.
“I felt confident and honestly, pretty,” Sarah fondly recalls. “I felt it was a really good reflection of who I was and what I wanted the day to be.”
Light, whimsical, and romantic, Sarah and Ramez had a relaxed countryside wedding in Florence filled with hanging flowers and candles. As Sarah's exquisite lace gown flowed behind her down the aisle, Sarah was filled with love and happiness as her vision had finally come to life.
