Today we’re celebrating Skye and Jerry’s beautiful big day in Culver City, California. The couple married on April 23rd, 2016 at the most adorable venue, featuring an indoor/outdoor haven for desert plants, vertical gardens and chic vintage furnishings. The whole day was lovely, which you will see in these photos. Real bride Skye was excited to share some memorable moments from her relationship with Jerry. The one that stands out the most- the magical engagement.

“Just a few short weeks after I moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco, Jerry explains he has an interview… in NYC. 2 months later, we’re New Yorkers (Don’t tell real New Yorkers). It’s Exciting! Loud! Crazy! Stunning! Magical! Chilly/FREEZING! We’re walking faster, enjoying the finest bagels and pizza and bundling up to see the sights. Little did I know, Jerry was sneaking around to diamond stores in mid-town seeking the perfect ring. Before heading back to the west coast for a visit to our families, we celebrated our first Christmas in New York. To ramp up the holiday spirit, we decorated our corporate apartment’s living room chair into our faux tree, covered in lights and presents. Sipping Sea Smoke sparkling wine, we open gifts one by one. The last gift Jerry hands me is a large sweater size box, and the only one I don’t know what’s inside ;). As I open the box, I see Ann Taylor Loft. I thought… Hmmm, I never wear anything from Ann Taylor! Open the box to find a small red bag with another gift box inside. As it gets smaller, I look at him and gasp, Honey! Inside that box, is a ring box which I can’t help but immediately open and then slam shut to look at him for what’s next… Now, I can’t say I remember every word, but he shared a lot of sweet sentiments about how wonderful I am (blush) and how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of our lives together and then asked, “Will you marry me?” Obviously, I replied with an excited, “YES!!!!”

Skye wore our Nava gown and looked absolutely gorgeous. She purchased from Lovely Bride in NYC. “It was perfect! I tried a few others, but I loved this style, elegance, the beautiful beading and it was so comfortable to wear. I felt beautiful!”

We hope you enjoy these snapshots as much as we do. Congrats to Skye and Jerry!
