A love story in every way! Phil and Ali met six years ago in the doctor of physical therapy graduate program at the University of Dayton. It was love at first sight as they were even partners in the anatomy lab! After a 2.5 year long distance relationship, Phil proposed the weekend Ali decided to move back to Pittsburgh. The proposal was romantic and surprising in every way! He set up the room with lots of candles and flowers everywhere and a love letter for Ali to read, ending with a note that she’d find him upstairs. Much to her surprise, Ali went upstairs and found the love of her life kneeling on one knee!
Their wedding was truly magical, glamorous, and elegant. Ali wore a stunning BERTA style 16-08, a favorite of many! This is a short sleeve, floral applique, and hints of sheer tulle sheath dress with a beautiful full overskirt. The pieces of lace were sprinkled all throughout the dress and complimented her silhouette perfectly. We love the way she styled her hair with soft waves and a low bun as well as the beautiful makeup. All in all, Ali looked like a dream on her big day and we are so excited to have her a real BERTA bride! Even more so, Ali is the daughter of the owner of our beautiful retailer, Bridal Beginning! She is very dear and close to our heart!
