After the most amazing proposal in Santorini, Kombez and Jayme couldn't wait to start planning their special day together. They were even researching while they were still travelling Europe ! Back in Edmonton, we were so excited to help Jayme find her dream wedding gown...soft, romantic, modern and most importantly....comfortable! We asked the newly weds to share their beautiful story.
"Kombez and I met while working at the same accounting firm together. It wasn't until a few years later that we actually went on our first date. Sparks flew instantly but unfortunately our timing was a bit off. Our first date was a day before I left to travel Asia. Shortly after I returned Kom moved to New York for work. We decided to try long distance and they say "distance makes the heart grow fonder" and for us that was true. Fast forward to Kom moving back to Edmonton, we began our lives together with our little fur baby named Finnigan- best idea ever! During our month long trip to Europe, Kombez surprised me in Santorini by proposing near a secluded church overlooking the Skaros Rock surround by the Caldera. It was a dream proposal to say the least.
I couldn't wait to start planning our wedding. Ideas started to flow and there I was in Europe researching venues and wedding dresses every spare minute we had. I was too excited! As soon as I got home I planned a weekend of wedding dress shopping with my mom, mother in law and bridesmaids. Luckily I found my dress within those two days. Novelle was not only great to work with but they were honest about the dresses I tried on- something you don't always get. When I first tried on my dress I loved it but with trying on so many dresses that weekend I had to process it all. As soon as I got home I couldn't get that beautiful dress out of my head. I knew it was the one. Novelle was so patient with me and even let me come in last minute the next day to try it on again. As soon as I tried it on with my veil I had to get it!
August 11, 2018 was the day I got to marry the love of my life. I am still on cloud 9 thinking about how amazing our wedding day was. I will never forget the moment I walked down the aisle hand in hand with both of my parents. When Kom and I locked eyes it was a very emotional moment. I couldn't wait to spend the rest of my life with this incredible man. As soon as I stood up with him I felt calm and couldn't wipe that huge smile off my face. I always think back to the exact moment. Although the whole wedding day was the most magical day ever this was my favourite. Top top it off, we also had our fur baby play the ring bearer dressed in a puppy tuxedo!
Both venues were beautiful! My dress was comfortable which meant for me that I could enjoy all the delicious food we had that night and trust me...there was A LOT of food. We celebrated the evening with all our loved ones and it was a day we will cherish forever.
Thank you Novelle for making my wedding dress dreams come true! If I could, I would wear my wedding dress every day! "
