Real Belle Vogue Bride Jennifer + Cody
Bride Jennifer was the picture of bridal bliss at her Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, wedding! Wearing a beautiful Essense of Australia wedding dress, she said “I do” to groom Cody in front of friends and family in a simple and romantic ceremony.
My birthday is two days before Valentine’s day, so we always celebrate them together. My husband had booked us a helicopter tour over Kansas City, I was so excited! We love doing new things together! I always imagined when he proposed, it would just the two of us at home on a Sunday morning. Coffee in hand with our pups in our laps. I never imagined it would have been at dusk just above Kansas City, the two of us in the back of a helicopter. I was totally shocked. The whole experience was exhilarating! The Charles B. Wheeler airport downtown is where my late grandfather learned to fly. My new fiance had no idea of this, so for that place to tie us together made it that much more special to me. Afterward, he had planned a surprise engagement party for me with friends and family, who thought it was a surprise birthday party. No one knew what Cody had up his sleeve!
The Wedding Dress
For my wedding day, I wanted to look natural, to feel and be comfortable, but yet still feel elegant and “like a bride”. I actually had TWO Belle Vogue Bridal appointments. The first I went with my sister and soon to be sister-in-law, just to see what dress shopping was all about. I didn’t purchase my gown that day, but there was a dress that I couldn’t get off my mind. I made another appointment, this time with my bridesmaids and niece as well, to put that dress on again. I still couldn’t say yes. I tried on a few other gowns and when it came to Essense of Australia’s Style D2555 it was obvious it was “the one” for me! I didn’t want to take it off! It was perfect for our destination wedding; it was romantic with the floral lace, it had sparkle and the most beautiful train! Did I mention how comfortable it was? The material was stretchy and flattering, something I could move in and be comfortable in was at the top of my list. I had the best experience at Belle Vogue and refer all my new bride friends there.
The Wedding Details
Our colors were dusty rose and grey. I don’t think I can give our wedding an exact theme, but it was simple, small and everyone could feel the love that day. We had 20 guests, a small, intimate wedding was important to us. Neither of us even noticed our guests because we only saw each other during the ceremony. I’ll never forget feeling like it was just him and me during the ceremony.
The most special memory from the day is when the song I walked down the aisle to started playing, the tears started rolling. I was about to live out my dream and walk to my forever! It was truly magical, walking down the aisle in paradise, seeing my husband wiping away his tears was so sweet. Being in Mexico made it 100x more beautiful. I’ve never felt happier than I did in those moments.
