When did you know that your gown was “the one”?

My dress had the exact silhouette I was looking for. The lace details were beautiful, but I still felt comfortable in the gown and very much like myself.

How did you and your husband meet?

We met while teaching in Duval County Public Schools. I was teaching kindergarten, and he was teaching middle school band.

Why did you want to get your gown cleaned and preserved?

A lot of time and effort went into finding the perfect dress. Maybe another young lady in my family will be able to use it one day. Regardless, it will also be a special memory from a very special day!
