Bustle Bride: Catherine Irwin Thomas

Catherine Irwin Thomas is the newest addition to our Bustle bride features. Catherine and her hubby Taylor exchanged vows on a beautiful Alabama fall day, and we can't get over how gorgeous she looked when she said, "I do."

During her appointment, Catherine fell in love with a one-shoulder lace fit and flare gown by Allure. She decided to sleep on it because it IS a big decision, and she realized she couldn't live without the gown. She came back a week later and made it official - she said "yes" to the dress, and we're so glad she did!

Catherine and her entourage were such a joy to have in our store, and they made the appointment so upbeat and fun. Everyone was smiling the entire time! 

We are so in love with Catherine and Taylor's photos from their special day. The venue, the flowers, the dress - we're swooning! Everything was so beautiful and worked so well to create a day full of love and celebration!

The whole day was truly the best. I could not have asked for more love, support, or happiness all in a 24 hour time span. I would have to say that my favorite part of the day was the “first look.” Taylor and I dated long distance for a total of 6 years of my undergraduate and masters degrees, and the morning of our wedding waiting to see him seemed longer than all of those years, months, and days combined. My heart was racing as I waited for him in our meeting spot, but when I finally got to hug him and see his face I got this overwhelming mix of emotions joy, excitement, and peace. His kind words and warm hugs made taking on the day so easy!
