Love Story Of The Day: She Married Her Best Friend In Her Grandmother's Gorgeous Lace Dress
\"For me, he always felt like home.\" - the bride
You'll get chills watching the bride and groom give their interviews at the start of this beautiful film. It's especially magical because you can actually feel the energy and excitement of their wedding day through the screen.
Laura wore her grandmother's gown during the ceremony—which is beautiful and timeless with its lace design and detail—then switched to a stunning strapless number from David's Bridal. It was the perfect way to set the tone for the different parts of the day, and such a beautiful way to honor her grandma.
From The Bride:
We first met in the Fall of 2008 during our first week of orientation at Cornell University in upstate New York. It was one of those moments that seemed so ordinary yet has become so special of a memory. He had volunteered to help hand out programs at Mass and I had come early to Mass to scope out the cute Catholic boys. Didn't take me long to find one ;)
Fast-forward four years later and it's senior year of college and we both have different plans for our careers. Me in Grand Rapids, Michigan as a business manager and Mark in San Francisco, CA as a Software Engineer. After a year of distance, I took the leap of faith, packed my bags and flew out to San Francisco to join Mark. After two wonderful years of dating, Mark surprised me one beautiful morning with a sunrise adventure to the top of Corona Heights to watch the sunrise and look down on our city. That's where he asked me to adventure with him forever. Happily I accepted!
Now we're living that young and in love in San Francisco life and couldn't be happier!
