The White Magnolia Bridal – Tampa

Jared and I met at an open gym playing volleyball and we’ve pretty much been inseparable since. I know it sounds so cliche but he truly is my best friend. We enjoy playing sports together, taking our pups to the park, and binge watching Netflix shows on rainy days. He makes me laugh every single day and I am so lucky to have found my soulmate. We both have wonderful families that have become close over these past 5 years.

Before I started looking for my dream dress, there were a few details about the dress that I was certain I wanted: lace, straps, and a long train. The first boutique I went to had some great options but I knew that I still hadn’t found THE dress yet. After a couple months I went to The White Magnolia in Tampa. From the moment I stepped foot into their boutique I knew I was going to find my dress, I just had that feeling. My stylist Danielle was awesome an totally understood my style and what I was looking for (she even had a pear shaped engagement ring like me)! After a trying on the first few dresses she brought me my Mikaella dress to try on. As soon as she opened the curtains for my family to see everyone’s breath was taken away, including mine! It was love at first sight! It was everything I was looking for. Elegant, lace, straps, a little sexy, and long beautiful train. I knew that this was it and said YES to THE DRESS! I still to this day receive so many compliments about my gorgeous dress and am so happy I found it!
