Jessica & Chris
A Heaven-Sent Love Story
Beautiful Gilded Gown bride Jessica recently sent us her gorgeous wedding photos. We asked if she would share her wedding story with us, and we are so thrilled that she agreed. Read on for her inspiring story…
“Chris and I met in 2017, just after a divorce from my first marriage. To be completely honest, I truly see him as heaven-sent. He came to me at what had to have been the worst time of my life. Here I was, a single mom to two (incredible) kids. I was working two full-time jobs, and just trying to move on with my life, and leave the past behind. Chris is one of those guys that you don’t think exist. Three years, and let me tell you, he still amazes me! I have never met a more caring, understanding human. I cannot say enough about him! Chris didn’t have any children. From day one, he has treated my kids like they are his own. In March 2019, our son Logan made his way into this world! I had waited and waited on him to pop the question at times that I thought he would, but low and behold…he never did. “
Chris always told me he would NEVER EVER propose on Christmas. He said that is “just too generic. ” He insisted it needed to be “done right.” He wanted me to believe this lie of course for his own good. Christmas day 2019, our children are opening their gifts. I notice that in the wreath above our fireplace there is an “elf on the shelf” holding a box… I think to myself, but wait, we don’t have an elf on the shelf!! So I thought oh this is something special he has done for the kids, how sweet. So I take it down, and my son says…”it’s yours Mom!” I opened it in disbelief…there it was. My ring!! We officially tied the not on 8/29/20.
My dress was everything I ever wanted in a wedding dress! The gilded gown was my first and only stop when I was looking! I tried on several dresses, not really sure what exactly I wanted, but my dress specialist was so patient! When I gave her an idea of what I had in mind, she went straight back and brought the dress back to me that I said “yes” to, the dress fit perfectly, it was like it was made just for me!
Everything about my experience at the gilded gown was perfect!!
Thank you so much to everyone at The Gilded Gown! I got to say “I do” to the love of my life on 08/29/20, in my dream dress!! My dress was everything I ever wanted in a wedding dress! The gilded gown was my first and only stop when I was looking!
