Being surrounded by nostalgic scenery, loved ones, and the anticipation of a new addition to the family makes this wedding story the epitome of love in all its forms. We have the pleasure of exploring Jessyca’s beautiful wedding day this month. “Casey and I chose to have our destination wedding in New Orleans, in the historic Hermann-Grima House courtyard on October 10, 2009.” Looking at these photos you can instantly see and feel the close connection she and her husband share.
Little did this couple know, there was another marvelous suprise on the horizon. “When we started planning the wedding about eighteen months before, we had no idea we’d also be planning for a baby, and that made the festivities even sweeter.”
With the help of our bridal consultants, Jessyca felt that our Demetra dress would best suite her needs as an expectant mother. “I was surprised at how flattering the gown was – wearing a long white dress isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you’re pregnant! The way the Demetra fell on my extra curvy body made me feel statuesque and graceful, exactly the way I wanted to feel on my wedding day..expecting or not!”
This dress features an ivory strapless French cotton lawn with silver and ivory embroidered tulle and cotton lace. Jessyca further elaborates, ”…Demetra not only worked well as a maternity gown, but the simplicity and elegance of the cotton lace made me feel cool, comfortable, and elegant and it also fit perfectly with the atmosphere of the wedding.”
A few months later, Jessyca and Casey were graced with another blessing… “Our daughter Magnolia was born Christmas Day, 2009 - in the warmth and peace of our home in Baltimore.” To celebrate their one year anniversary, the happily married couple returned with their daughter to New Orleans. Here they are now looking as wonderfully radiant as ever.
Thank you so much Jessyca for sharing your experiences with us. Your story was truly heart-warming. Best wishes to you, your husband Casey, and your adorable daughter Magnolia!
