Erika & Kristen in the Nathalia Gown

Kristen and Erika got married in the countryside of Tuscany, Italy, in a beautiful villa called The Marchese Estate. The two brides wedded outside in front of the pergola, had aperitifs on the deck at the entrance of the estate, enjoyed dinner inside to really appreciate the intimacy, and partied all night in the covered area by the pool. It was truly magical.

What is a GRACE woman to you?

To me, the GRACE woman is gracefully confident in her skin.

Which GRACE dress did you wear and how did you know it was 'The One'?

I chose the Nathalia. It fit me like a glove in the showroom. I was instantly comfortable, and felt one with the dress. It also came with pearl accents which was very ironic because I had planned on paying homage to my late mother with her favorites, pearls. I just felt like the universe was telling me this was meant for me.

What was your first date?

We were chatting via text and I got the courage to ask her on a date. Her response, "I can meet you right now." I panicked, asked for her to give me an hour, and we met up at our now favorite ramen restaurant called Wabi House, in Dallas, TX.

Did you DIY anything?

We did not DIY anything but I did dedicate a seat in the front row for my late mother, draped in flowers with my message to her engraved on a picture frame housing her wedding picture inside.

The funniest moment on the day or something that surprised you?

I think the most beautiful thing that happened was it rained the night before the wedding only to dry just enough for us to continue our ceremony, and then it gave us just little sprinkle at the end of our ceremony (great luck for our marriage)!

Where did you get married?

My wife and I got married in the countryside of Tuscany, Italy in a beautiful villa called The Marchese Estate. We only invited 27 of our closest friends and family; our blood relatives staying in the main villa our wedding took place at, and our friends in a villa 10 minutes down the road, also owned by the same family. We wed outside infant of the pergola, had aperitifs on the deck at entrance of the estate, had dinner inside to really appreciate the intimacy, and partied all night in the covered area by the pool. It was truly magical.
