The bridesmaid's dresses were an elegant shade of blue and their belted design was also worn by the beautiful bride, Kara. Her belted and detailed gown accented her waist and her hair was effortlessly pulled back with waves. The floral arrangements that Kara and her two bridesmaids carried had the perfect amount of greenery and color. They matched their gowns flawlessly and are the perfect detail for Kara and Chris's special day.
Q. How did you meet?
A. We actually met at work. Chris was my trainer so we spent a decent amount of time together. We bonded over music mostly, but our personalities and senses of humor just clicked. We went on our first date within a month of knowing each other.
Q. Tell us your proposal story.
A. Chris took a random day off and I was so jealous. I wanted the day off with him! But he pushed me off and I grudgingly went to work. Well he told me to text him when I left work, which I thought was weird. I pull into our garage, get to the entry door and there's a note telling me to put my stuff back in the car and proceed into our house. The first door had a handwritten note on it that profiled the highlights of our past. The next door had a note about our present. When I got to the main living space, he had a million tea lights going, lined my walking path with flower petals, and there was a bouquet of carnations on our kitchen table. I followed the petal path to our bedroom and there was a note about our future. He then had me open the door and he was playing music, on one knee, surrounded by flowers.
Q. What’s one fun fact about you and your spouse as a couple?
A. We are avid chefs. We actually created our own cookbook that we've amassed recipes into.
Q. Was there a wedding theme or style?
A. Rustic modern. I loved incorporating geometric shapes and succulents.
Q. How would you describe your wedding in 3 words?
A. Romantic Party and Joyous
Q. What was the most memorable part of the wedding day?
A. Looking around the reception room and seeing all of the most important people in our lives smiling back at us.
Q. What’s one piece of advice you would want to give to brides?
A. Try to make time slow down because the day is over in a blur. Enjoy every second!

Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn’t be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5” (size 12), your waist measures 31” (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5” (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
