Winston and I met in summer school, August of 2007. We were going into our senior year of high school, bummed to be spending our summer in a classroom.
We lived in the same town, but attended different high schools. From the moment we first met, we both somehow knew we were meant to be together.
From that moment forward, we were “Sarah + Winston.”
10 years later, on January 9th, 2017 —Winston asked me to marry him in our first apartment together in Massachusetts.
About the Dress
Fashion is one of my greatest passions. Finding a wedding gown that somehow fulfilled every aspect of my infinite checklist was a job for the one and only, Pnina Tornai!
I had a vision in my mind. I wanted a ballgown, sweetheart top, corset back, and intricate crystal detail. Antonella paid close attention to all of my criteria, and selected several choices for me to try on.
The moment I slipped into my gown, I immediately knew it was “the one.”
About the Wedding
Deep River, Connecticut //
The Lace Factory
Our wedding had a vintage, romantic theme —featuring rich fall tones. Emerald green velvet bridesmaid dresses. Bouquets filled with parchment roses, deep red dahlias, and enchanting greens.
We rented a vintage steam train to take our guests to and from the wedding. Our venue was located in Deep River, Connecticut. A spacious room with white-washed exposed brick in-between the wall to wall windows. Gold frames hung from the ceiling. Moody grey candle sticks nestled in greenery. Vintage crystal decanters scattered across long farm tables.
A vintage, romantic fairy tale. The absolute greatest day of our lives.
