Pence and Panache Wedding:
Shane and Lauren
WHERE DID YOU MEET YOUR FIANCE?
We met at a Basketball game in high school.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE?
He proposed in a hot air balloon.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR DRESS WAS THE ONE?
Because it came straight from my own imagination!
FAVORITE FEATURE ABOUT YOUR DRESS?
My dress was a 2-in-1, so I loved it all around, but I’d have to say my favorite part would have to be the skirt!
ACCESSORIES CHOSEN TO ACCENT YOUR DRESS:
I wanted my dress to be the center of attention, so I wore simple jewelry made by my aunt along with hair garland.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
My favorite part of my wedding day was saying our vows; everyone disappeared. It was just me and him.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE THE THEME OF YOUR WEDDING?
WHAT COLOR PALETTE DID YOU SELECT?
Burgundy, Rose Gold/Gold, and Navy accents. I just love those colors, they’re so warm and comforting.
WHAT WAS YOUR SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED AND SOMETHING BLUE?
I had intended on wearing an old bobby pin that was beaded by my little sister and given to my mom. It wasn’t until the end of the night, that I realized I forgot to put it on!
DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE AT PENCE AND PANACHE!
P&P was wonderful! They took my jumbled thoughts and helped bring my dream dress to life. Everyone there was so kind and easy to work with.
WHAT IS YOUR #1 TIP FOR BRIDES IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?
It takes time!! If you want your dream wedding to be the best that it can be, be patient and look at all of your options. It will all be worth it in the end!
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR THEIR PERFECT BRIDAL GOWN?
Go with your gut! Do not worry about what everyone thinks you will look like, get what you feel beautiful in!
