I purchased my dress and veil from Blossom’s Bridal in Dublin, CA. It was my first shopping experience and I found my perfect dress on my 3rd try– they say third time’s a charm. I think I started crying once the veil was put on my head. The vision of my husband and saying our vows sunk in and became a reality.  

The only thing I added to the dress was the back “sleeve.” You’ll notice it has a trim piece on both sides of the shoulder blade. The original design did not have this. I purchased the additional trim pieces at Britex Fabrics in San Francisco and Blossom’s sewed each trim by hand.
