At the tail end of a conversation and a glass of champagne during an after-work gathering, Tim asked Mary on a first date. Three years later, certain that Mary was the one, Tim flew halfway across Australia to ask her father in person for his blessing. He managed all of this rather covertly too, explaining his absence as 'work-related' and ringing her
father just an hour outside of Mary's family farm from a rental car. Her father cancelled his golf plans for the day, welcomed Tim, and the rest is history. Mary still had no idea until a few months later, when Tim stole a moment for the two of them beside apricot trees and asked her to marry him.
After reassuring words from our stylists (Mary lives quite far from both of our stores and was a bit hesitant to order a dress online) she took the plunge on our Lita Gown. It seems she couldn't be happier; as she puts it
'I felt like a princess'. For her three bridesmaids Mary opted for our Marchioness Dress as its light blue color and subtle vintage quality blended perfectly with Mary's own dress and the overall feel of the day.
The couple was especially touched that nearly all of their friends and family made the journey to Mary's parents' farm for the big day. Her nieces and nephews, thrilled to play a role, strolled down the aisle as flower girls and ring bearers. Mary's mom cooked up apricot jam made from her own orchard
for the wedding favors, bundled each of the white rose bouquets herself, and baked the wedding cake too! And for her something borrowed, Tim lent Mary a necklace which had been treasured by the women in his family for generations.
