A Modern Day Romance

After an online chat mishap, soon resolved by Justine clarifying that she was indeed human and not a bot, the couple's love story began. After a flurry of online messaging, a date was planned a week later. From that moment, Justine and Nino shared a beautiful bond, "and the rest is history," as the bride describes.

A Heart-warming Proposal in Ireland

Years later, on a trip to visit Nino's family in Ireland, he surprised her at the Blackrock Diving Tower in Galway. This was the tower that Nino's late mother often used to visit. While Justine's expectations of the trip involved meeting Nino's family, he had a different idea in mind.   

There on the same day in September, at the place where the family had scattered Nino's mother's ashes in 2011, Nino was down on one knee, asking for her hand in marriage. The bride shared, "It was the most beautiful and emotional day of my life. I had no clue! It was the easiest 'Yes' of my life." It was such a meaningful, and sentimental engagement for the couple and their family.

An Old Hollywood Glamour Wedding in Palm Springs, California

Nino and Justine shared their special day at the 'Parker Palm Springs' in Palm Springs, California. It was an enchanting venue for the couple to exchange vows, with a picturesque setting within 13 acres of lush greenery. Justine reminisces, "The Parker makes you feel like you've entered into a stunning, private oasis."  

The couple envisioned timeless elegance, reminiscent of Old Hollywood Glamour. A classic colour palette of black and white, with touches of gold embodied their theme beautifully. As for the floral arrangements, Phalaenopsis Orchids, and White Roses adorned the venue.  

The ceremony, held on the estate's Croquet Lawn, was a heartfelt event with Nino's vows leaving everyone teary-eyed, setting the tone for a memorable weekend. Guests then enjoyed cocktail hour under the palm trees followed by a three-course meal in the ballroom. Their magical day was filled with laughter, fun, and happy tears, being described by the bride as "a perfect day."

Saying ‘Yes’ to the Bella

Justine's journey began at the Venice Grace Loves Lace. With a clear vision of elegance and simplicity in mind, the Bella soon captured her heart. "It felt like me," she reflected, admiring the flattering cut of the dress.  

To embrace her bridal experience, Justine decided to pair the gown with the Grace veil. Being drawn to its delicate tulle, and sweeping train, she knew it was the perfect addition to enhance her bridal attire. "My full GLL look brought my husband to tears at the first look, so mission accomplished!"
