We’ve been happily receiving a lot of Real Brides submissions and it’s about time we get this monthly feature going again! I first discovered Sabrina back in September 2009 when I saw her featured on The Bride’s Café. It was the style of photography and her beautiful wedding that caught my attention, and I couldn’t wait to post about it.

“I knew I was going to get a Claire Pettibone dress. A year before I ever met my husband, I showed friends your website and they instantly agreed that your line was made for me. When I went to the bridal salon to try on the Larissa dress, I also pulled about ten other random dresses just because it was a big trek to go out to the salon and I thought I should try on as many dresses as possible. I put on the Larissa and instantly told the saleslady that I didn’t need to try on any of the other dresses. I bought it on the spot. One of my friends had told me that you would find the right dress when you feel like a princess. The Larissa made me feel like a princess.”

Being half Japanese, Sabrina tried to include little Japanese touches throughout her wedding. “The wedding favors were a set of two little ceramic maneki-nekkos (the lucky cat holding up one paw that you see at a lot of Japanese restaurants). The favors were wrapped with Japanese fabric cord and the place cards were rubber stamped with chrysanthemums and cherry blossoms (both prevalent in Japanese culture).

Throughout the reception they played black and white films on a big screen including Singing in the Rain and Maltese Falcon among others. Setting a romantic mood as they danced, ate, and laughed with their loved ones.

Congratulations Sabrina!
