Edgy Chic Industrial Wedding Day: Anna & Mikel
This Beloved Bride takes industrial wedding chic to the next level! Anna and Mikel’s edgy-yet-elegant rustic wedding day features exposed brick, graffiti, bright colors and a gorgeously glamorous purple-toned reception. Style BL231 Wonder is the perfect compliment to this urban wedding event, artistically captured by Paul Ragucos Photography!
At the beginning of her wedding dress search, Anna was not only a bride-to-be, but a mother-to-be! She delayed looking for a gown until she was 3 months pregnant.
“In the back of my mind, I was thinking of my postpartum body, somewhat unsure and afraid of getting a dress that wouldn’t fit well.”
“I spontaneously made another last-minute appointment with my mom at Avenue 22. Eva, one of the consultants, suggested a dress, and it was the Casablanca Bridal BL321. I wore it for 5 minutes and ordered the dress instantly in ivory! I didn’t ask my MOH, sisters-in-law or friends. Both my mom and I agreed that was the dress.”
This industrial bride met her husband Mikel at the workplace. When Mikel got hired, Anna immediately knew she was interested!
“We discreetly eyed each other for a few weeks, until our manager randomly invited us to a dinner (most possibly his idea). The road through our love story has been ups and downs, starts and stops. Since then, we had been on and off, just like the song After All by Peter Cetera.”
“March 22, 2016, he proposed on my birthday in front of my whole family. Since then, we have started to grow and nurture our family through God’s guidance.”
What a beautiful love story! These two proceeded to plan a gorgeous, colorful wedding day at York Mills Gallery in Toronto. Edgy city backdrops meld beautifully with the stunning modern glamorous reception, creating the event of a lifetime.
Congratulations to #BelovedBride Anna and her beautiful family!
