Ladies (+ gents) are you ready to see a stunning beach destination wedding? I know there’s a lot of you destination brides out there! We’ve already seen the e-session & trash the dress, but now we get to see the much anticipated wedding of CTV Edmonton’s web reporter, Melissa Dominelli who married her handsome beau Will. I can’t get over how amazing the photos from Claudia Rodriguez are and have to admit that this might be one of the prettiest & glamorous dresses I’ve seen in a while. Royal/cobalt blue is still a big colour for this season, so I hope you’ll take notice of this wedding. Read on, as I asked Melissa to share some details about her special day.
Why did you choose a destination wedding?
My husband and I had always envisioned a beach in the backdrop for our wedding. The sun, sand, and ocean was all we needed to be one happy couple!
What was your overall inspiration for the wedding decor?
Our goal was to shower our guests with a wedding they’ve likely never seen before. We went with a colour combination of ivory and silver, with a hint of royal blue, which was the choice of colour for our lovely bridesmaid dresses. Each rose was complimented with crystal buds or loose crystals for the tables, along with hanging crystals for the centrepieces.
How did you choose your style of wedding gown? How did it make you feel?
My wedding dress was everything I have dreamt of and more. The moment I first tried it on, I knew it was “the one”. I had my doubts I would know which dress was for me, but as they say, ‘you just know’ and they were right! Once I saw the nods of approval from my mom, grandmother, and sister, I knew I had to have it!
What advice would you give brides when it comes to planning their wedding?
Stick to your guns when it comes to making decisions. I found that I changed my mind so often it resulted in numerous changes throughout the wedding process. To a point that I had to make sure to keep track of it all!
Congrats Melissa & Will xoxo.
