White Closet Bride Maddie said “I do!” in the lace wedding dress of her dreams! Her beautiful Stella York gown was the perfect fit for her romantic wedding. We absolutely loved hearing about all of the personal details from David & Maddie’s special day!
Read more about it below and see some of our favorite captured moments!

Wedding Day

From the bride:
“Our wedding was classic and romantic. Our ceremony was in a beautifully windowed, bright rotunda that overlooked a lake in Lake Mary, Florida, and was accented with a simple white arch and lovely mulberry florals with greenery. It was simple but perfect. Our reception was in a golden ballroom, decorated with more floral and pink/gold accessories.”

“To personalize our wedding, we had our best friend/worship pastor as our officiant, which made us all the more emotional; we had one of our closest friends as our videographer; I surprised my husband by singing a love song at our reception; and last but not least, to extra surprise my husband, I secretly arranged for the mascot of our alma mater, UCF’s Knightro to bust into our reception and dance the night away with us! We were surrounded by our best friends, family and each other. We couldn’t have asked for more! My absolute favorite part of our wedding day was that everything else in the world stopped and everyone we love was all in one place, for one perfect night, that could’ve gone on forever.”

The perfect dress

When Maddie came to find the perfect dress, she described “lace, lace, and MORE lace!” She fell in love with a beautiful lace wedding dress by Stella York that fit her perfectly! The illusion neckline adorned with lace combined with the soft, effortless flowy a-line skirt gave Maddie the romantic feel she was looking for! A beautiful cathedral lace veil was the perfect finishing touch to complete her bridal look!

From the bride on dress shopping:
“Shopping at the White Closet Bridal was so much fun. It was a crazy sale day, but the team was so sweet to us and truly cared about me finding the perfect dress. They had so many lacey, dreamy options to try that I absolutely LOVED! I’m so thankful to have found a place that had exactly the style of dresses I was hoping to find. When I came back for my dress fitting later on, Cindy even asked if I would try on some new dresses and model for them — which as a plus-sized girl, I had never been asked to be a model before! The team made me feel like an absolute queen every step of the way.”
