A Beautiful & Natural Wedding!

Shawn and I’s destination wedding was in Tampa Bay facing a park in St. Petersburg, Florida. We picked this location because we wanted a beautiful and natural scenery. Our only colors were peaches and champagnes to provide a touch of color to photos. We went for an evening beach photo at Sunset Beach near Treasure Island.
I visited this store after shopping at every local shop (within an hour from my house) that we could find. It seemed like I just couldn’t find THE dress, and couldn’t even narrow down to a certain style. One of my friends recommended Bridal and Formal, which was about 3 hours away, and after no luck with these local stores, we decided to just plan a trip on the next weekend available. I am so glad we decided to travel a few hours here than to sit and wait for closer stores to get new stock or settle for a gown I just liked.
We walked in and we were greeted by an amazing consultant, Bobbi, and were pointed in a general direction for our price point. I was super nervous and stressed, just because I really still did not know what style I wanted and felt a completely lost at this point. We gathered several different dresses, and after trying on just two, my mom said “I think if we could combine this first dress bottom with the second dress’s top, that is a style she would like!”
Bobbi said “Okay! Just wait here!” She came back with THE DRESS! The dress that matched what my mom had said. Needless to say, it was an effortlessly easy and fun afternoon. We figured we would be shopping around the bridal district all day and I am SO thankful that we were recommended this store and found Bobbi first. I’m not sure I would have found the dress if I didn’t.
Bobbi was AMAZING! She was super fun and friendly, and really knew the dresses. As said above, she knew exactly which dress to pick for me off a vague description. I could tell she was genuinely excited for me and liked the dress too. Sometimes at formal/bridal shops you can tell the consultant just wants a sale, but Bobbi was very genuine and really took her time with me.
Thanks Bobbi!
