As a little girl, Chelsea dreamed about a big, beautiful wedding. Complete with a gorgeous wedding dress. Most importantly, a sparkling cathedral veil. As a result, she ordered a custom veil from Sorelle Vita Couture. In fact, Sorelle Vita Couture says, the wedding veil is one of the most, if not the most, important bridal accessory to wear on your wedding day. It adds the extra special touch that transforms you from a beautiful woman in a beautiful dress to a beautiful bride.
Michael and Chelsea were married on January 31, 2021 in St. Augustine, FL. Moreover it was the last night of St. Augustine’s famous “Nights of Lights“. Therefore the town was beautifully lit up and created a stunning backdrop for this dream wedding exit. Chelsea says it was “the perfect blend of elegance and winter wonder”. Additionally, the ceremony and reception took place inside The Treasury on the Plaza. Further adding to the dreamy elements of this wedding with the classic details of the 100-year-old art-deco era building.
The happy couple said the venue was a bridal dream. That is to say, it offers state of the art event features while simultaneously maintaining the historic charm of one of St. Augustine, FL’s prized landmarks. Chelsea cried when she walked through the doors of the private reception room reveal. Speaking of crying, how touching is the groom crying when he sees his beautiful bride for the first time walking down the aisle.
According to the bride, planning a wedding during a pandemic was challenging and emotionally draining at times. That is to say, feeling uncertain about last minute guest cancellations. Then questioning how months of distance planning would come together. Indeed loosing sleep at night. Further Chelsea says, somehow, the wedding coordinator and the entire Treasury Team found a way to make us feel so special. Our bridal party and guests were made to feel safe and the venue made it possible for everyone to briefly forget the craziness of the pandemic for one perfect, magical evening.
The cathedral wedding veil was very important to this special bride. As aforementioned, it was part of her childhood dream. We cannot end this blog without again showing off this stunning custom veil and sharing Chelsea’s touching words. “11 months of planning and agonizing over little details transformed into something more enchanting than I ever could have imagined. There are no words, I’m still speechless.”
