“When I tried on the Galia Lahav, Emma, I knew it was the one. I went to other stores and tried on other dresses and could not stop thinking about it! I went back to KJ and sealed the deal. Sara and the girls at KJ made the whole experience wonderful. The dress was everything I had envisioned I'd marry the man of my dreams in- trumpet silhouette with stunning 3D intricate floral details throughout. I loved how it was made to my exact measurements and I was able to customize it. Galia even surprised me with a long beautiful veil that complemented the dress so well!”


advice from the bride

“Enjoy the day because it sure does fly by! My advice for future brides is to take a few moments with your husband during the ceremony and reception to look around the room, take mental snapshots and really soak it all in. Wedding planning is indeed stressful! Remember the sole reason for a wedding: love and building a future life together. Nowadays it's easy to get carried away with planning and have this get lost in translation. As the date gets closer, dedicate some time with your partner to relax and take some time off from wedding planning. ”

”My husband and I were inspired by disney films and its fairytale and enchanting theme, particularly Beauty and the Beast. We wanted to combine that with the natural splendor of the coast and found the perfect venue in Monterey/Pebble Beach to manifest the magic! The details included shades of pink, lots of candles, fairy lights, luscious floral and greenery! “


 “Oh how do I pick my favorite part, I loved every moment of it! But if I had to choose, one moment was my husband, Patrick and I sat down for dinner together for the first time as a married couple. We were so ecstatic to see everything we had planned for finally come to life; but most importantly we were so grateful to see our loved ones all together in one room.”


sweet moments

“Another favorite moment was during the magical moment of “golden hour” (an hour before sunset.) We took photos along the 17th fairway at Pebble Beach. This was the first time my husband and I were able to spend some alone time together and soak it all in. I remember holding my husband’s hand, seeing the sun setting so beautifully, sailboats bobbing by, while hearing the gentle waves lapping along the shore. It was such a magical moment!”


congratulations #KJBride!!
