More Details: Our wedding didn’t start out with a theme but it turned into a nautical theme over time. We had our wedding reception at Alexandria’s, which was a beautiful location right on the water in Oswego, NY. We had a very large wedding party with nine bridesmaids and nine groomsmen and the best part was how much fun we all had that day. It was definitely a day to remember forever.

I tried on a lot of dresses and none of them felt right. I kept thinking that I would never find “the one.” Everyone told me that I would and once I did, I would know it. But I still thought I was going to end up settling for an okay dress — and then I found “the one” at New York Bride. As soon as I put it on, I knew. It was perfect.
