Kendra Sorenson

Kendra fell in love with a very vintage and timeless Pronovias gown. It fit her figure so well and I think the pictures turned out beautifully. We were able to select a few of our favorites to share with you.

We send our best wishes to the happy couple!

Andrea and Andrej

"I do have to say that in the relentless quest for my wedding dress, I went to dozens of local wedding dress stores, and the service received at The Brides' Shop was bar none. Elise was such a pleasure to work with, so patient, generous, kind, and professional. Thank you for such a pleasant experience." -Andrea

Let me start by saying, I have never had a bride who worked so hard at finding the perfect dress. I feel like I gained two friends during the time before Andrea found her dress, Andrea and her mom. They were such a sweet pair, but they were determined to not stop until they knew it was the one. As you'll see below her search was well worth it. She is so fashion forward in her Pronovias gown and it couldn't have fit the venue any better. Let me share with you what she shared with me about her dress hunt experience.

"I spent a year looking for THE dress. I looked at over 3,000 dresses on the internet, and it feels like I tried on just as many...I wanted a classic dress - no lace, no beading, something timeless but "with the times." No dress could compare to the Alison. The structure of the dress is incredibly beautiful, and the fabric so unique. People on the streets of Dubrovnik were approaching me to compliment the dress. It's truly is magnificent."

The two were married August 6th in what Andrea calls the most incredible city, Dubrovnik, Croatia. The actually ceremony was held at a 17th century church inside the Old Town of Dubrovnik, Church of St. Ignatius.

Andrea said the entire day was incredibly special so it was difficult to pick her favorite moment. They were surrounded with their loving families and friends. They celebrated until four o'clock in the morning! I have to put word for word what she said about their very favorite part of the day. "...If we had to pick just one, we'd say our favorite moment was walking around the Old Town in Dubrovnik. After the wedding ceremony, our guests headed to the reception place, and we had about an hour to ourselves. The pressure was off, the nerves settled, and we had the opportunity to reflect on the new chapter in our lives...finally, husband and wife."

Best Wishes to you both!!!
