"Our wedding day was perfect,” proclaimed Stefany, today’s ultra-fabulous and creative Wedding Wednesday bride. "We’re both San Francisco natives and, after 11 years together, we tied the knot at La Grande Estates in Oakley, California.

"Rafael and I are seasoned travelers, often on the go, travelling to our bucket list locations around the world. We decided to have a smaller and more intimate wedding than we originally planned a few years ago, so that we can enjoy the honeymoon of our dreams. It was important to us to have our closest family and friends join us on such a special day in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our ceremony was held at the lakeside and reception was under the pavilion tent of the estate.

"I find a lot of inspiration in florals and, when shopping for my wedding dresses, I knew instantly that the Allure 9377 gown was the one for our ceremony. The magical long sleeve floral lace and added illusion neckline was everything I was looking for. I had a custom removable train made to give the dress a cathedral length.

"I’ve always dreamed of a floral crown and oversized bouquet for my wedding day. The love I have for florals comes from my mother buying flowers for us on a weekly basis during my teenage years," Stefany reminisced.

"Our wedding day was filled with floral enchantment that was inspired by my gown. As a plus-sized couple that loves dressing up, our motto for our wedding day was: 'you should wear and feel confident in whatever you want to wear on your wedding day!’ We had fun planning the three different looks for our wedding day.
