For Samantha Siboulet September 2, 2018 was absolutely magical day. Not only did she get to wed the love of her life, Daniery Siboulet, that day but she also got to wear the wedding dress of her dreams. Surrounded by the beautiful greenery at the Springwood Manor in Verona, Pennsylvania, Samantha gracefully walked down the aisle watching as her dreams came true.
As someone who had always dreamed about her wedding day and the gown she would wear, finding the ideal wedding gown was huge for Samantha. Very much into sparkles and glam, Samantha knew that she wanted to wear a gown that would make a statement. As a big fan of Say Yes to the Dress, it had always been a secret dream of Samantha's to find her wedding gown at the famous bridal salon. While sitting in the lobby of the bridal salon an exquisite gown on a mannequin caught Samantha's eye.
“It was the most stunning thing I had ever seen,” Samantha remembers.
It was love at first sight for Samantha when she saw the Pnina Tornai ball gown with a blinged out bodice and a layered tulle skirt. Despite the gown immediately capturing Samantha's interest, worried that it would be over her budget, Samantha decided to try on other gowns. Unable to get the Pnina Tornai gown off of her mind, with her mother's encouragement, Samantha finally tried on the enchanting dress.
Samantha fondly recalls, “Instantly it just felt right! It felt like the elegant princess dress that I always wanted.”
There was not one thing that Samantha would change about this gown so she didn't! The blingy corset had just the right amount of sparkle that Samantha wanted. The tennis bracelet straps were a nice treat of extra sparkle, enhancing the sweetheart neckline of the gown. The asymmetrical layers of tulle added just the right amount of whimsy and drama to the gown, pulling the whole look together and as a nice surprise there was even an extra layer of sparkle underneath the tulle!
Samantha had found the gown she had been dreaming of her entire life. To accessorize the look, Samantha of course had to wear a Pnina Tornai cathedral length veil embellished with crystals along the trim. In addition to the sparkle on the veil, she also added some extra bling in her hair with a crystal headpiece and teardrop earrings. Samantha was easily the sparkliest person at her ceremony and reception.
While all of the crystals made her shine, the layered tulle skirt added the whimsy that helped Samantha's gown mesh perfectly with her classical yet rustic wedding venue. The historic manor was the ideal setting for this couple, a blend of the elegance she was looking for and the more relaxed nature Daniery wanted.
When the wedding day finally arrived, there was only one word to describe the event: magical! For Samantha, wearing the gown that she had always envisioned herself wearing as a little girl was truly a dream come true. Looking how she had always dreamed of while marring the man of her dreams, Samantha was ready for her fairytale happily ever after.
