Abby & Garrison

7.29.17

Abby is a Texas native and Garrison is from Alaska. Although they both live in NYC, the couple wanted a venue to meet somewhere in the middle. Abby came across the Wayfarer's Chapel in Palos Verdes, California, and it quickly became the easiest decision. The unique sanctuary is made almost entirely of glass and sits right on the coast, overlooking the ocean. Abby and Garrison chose minimal décor and opted for simple greenery and signage. In the end, the couple wanted the day to be about celebrating their marriage, not the wedding itself. Opting for a smaller, simple ceremony made the day perfect and stress-free.

in her own words...

"Garrison and I attended the same college, but we never ran into each other...until we moved in together! The summer after my freshman year, my friend and I decided to stay in NYC and had an extra room to rent out. Garrison knew the apartment owner and ended up becoming our third roommate. We got to know each other very quickly this way! Towards the end of the summer, he finally asked me out and we went on our first date."

THE EVETTE GOWN & ANNIKA CAPE  |  The moment Abby came across Alexandra Grecco online, she looked no further. She was searching for a simple, yet stunning gown, and when she found out Lovely Bride was having a trunk show, she felt it was a sign.

"From the moment I laid eyes on the Annika Cape, I could not get it out of my head. When I tried on the Evette Gown, I knew it was the one. I adored the elegant low back and thin straps, but most importantly, I LOVED how it looked with the cape."
