Bride Natasha McCaleb says "YES" to her Catherine Ryals wedding dress the moment she tried it on for her May wedding. Read more about her wedding and her gown in the Wedding Dress Q&A below.
When was your wedding and where did it take place?
"Seth and I were married on May 30, 2015 at the Barn at Shady Lane in Birmingham, Alabama."
When did you know that your wedding gown was "The One?"
"I knew the moment I put it on! Both my wedding planner and my photographer had recmmended that I visit the bridal shop, Bustle, to try on wedding gowns. My Photographer (who occasionally works there part time) helped me that day and pulled several dresses she thought I'd love. The moment I put on the Catherine Ryals gown, I fell in love immediately." It was such a beautifly gown with lots of details and a unique look. I was totally able to picture myself wearing this gown on my wedding day and couldn't imagine getting married in anything else."
Why did you want to get your gown cleaned and preserved?
"I would absolutely love for my daughter to use it somehow in the future, but I definitely wouldn't mind wearing it again myself, either."
