Elizabeth and Chase's August wedding in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, was full of Southern charm! Elizabeth's gorgeous wedding dress has quite the story behind it, but she looked incredible on her wedding day. She carried a hand-tied bouquet of white cymbidium and dendrobium orchids, white hydrangea, caramel antique garden roses with accents of turkey feather tips and seeded willow eucalyptus. Elizabeth and Chase are currently enjoying married life, having just settled into their new home, and they'll have memories to treasure thanks to Chi Photography of Charleston.
Elizabeth's story of finding her wedding dress: Drama! Like most girls, I had been dreaming of a wedding my whole life, but the dress eluded me! I looked through all kinds of magazines and scoured the internet, but just didn't find the one. My mother and I visited almost every bridal store in Atlanta, but I wasn't having any luck on finding “the one.” On the last day, we went to Bridals by Lori, where they were having an Amsale trunk show. I narrowed it down to two dresses I liked and thought could be my wedding dress. I ordered one of the dresses, and six months later it arrived, but was ALL WRONG! The designer had changed some of the design elements that had been part of the runway dress I had originally tried on at the trunk show. It was a mess! After a lot of help from one of the managers, Amsale sent me a new dress in 1 week! And at the end of the day, I loved my dress! It was stunning and classic. My nightmare must have made for a good storyline, because they asked me to film an episode for the new season of “Say Yes to the Dress!”
