Bride is wearing “Celestine” Carol Hannah
“From day one we wanted to keep our wedding simple. We had 35 guests and just wanted it to feel like a summer hang out with our closest friends and family. We stripped away a lot of the traditions and formalities typical of any wedding, and just made it feel like us. We held the wedding in Prince Edward County as a halfway point between our two families, made a weekend of it and took the opportunity to spend time with the people we love the most.
I had seen the Celestine gown on Instagram and had that dress in the back of my mind when searching for dresses. No matter where I went I couldn’t find anything even similar at any other store. Everything was constructed, restrictive and tight. I couldn’t find anything that I felt like myself in. Then I found Sash & Bustle who carried Carol Hannah… and thank the dress gods for that.
When I tried it on I knew it was the one. It was simple, but gorgeous. It was airy and allowed me to move freely and eat all the food and drink all the drinks without feeling restricted. And best of all it felt like me.
I couldn’t have been happier with my dress and everyone commented on how it was 100% ‘Shannon’. It was simple but also different from what people were used to seeing. It was the perfect dress. Thank you Sash & Bustle!”
