The Bride and Groom
Bride’s Name: Brittany Berry
Groom’s Name: Colin Berry
Wedding Date: September 10, 2016
How you met your fiancé? We met through our mutual best friend Taylor Southerland
How did he propose? Halloween is his FAVORITE holiday. When we were taking our daughter Alaina (1 yr old) trick or treating he got down on one knee in the middle of the sidewalk and asked me to marry him. We were all dressed up for Halloween. He was a penguin, I was a candy corn and our daughter was a flower. It was not a TRICK and of course I SAID “YES”!
Your Bridal Gown &Accessories
Who was the wedding gown designer, and what was the style? Allure Bridals 8955
Did you purchase any of your bridal party’s attire or groom’s attire with us? We got the vests and ties/bowties from P&P. Groomsmen vest are Champagne and the Groom is Coral.
Favorite Feature about your dress: The whole thing but if I must pick one it would be the tulle at the bottom of the dress.
How did you know your dress was “the one”? Funny thing is the first dress I tried on was the one I ended up buying. I tried it on and I looked in the mirror and knew it was “THE ONE”. Even though my heart was set on the dress I still tried on about 11 more and I also knew because I didn’t feel the same way about any of the other dresses.
Describe your experience at Pence and Panache. I tried on about 12 different dresses. I figured that Asia, the consultant, would have gotten irritated because I picked out so many dresses but she wasn’t. She made my experience GREAT! I also loved how Asia talked me into trying on dresses out of my comfort zone “style”.
What accessories did you choose to accent your dress: Veil with pearls

Do you have any advice for brides who are still searching for their perfect bridal gown? Go to Pence & Panache! They have beautiful gowns and their staff is AMAZING. I could have had a better experience. It was so great they are the only bridal shop I went to.
