Congratulations, Pamela and Brian! Pamela found her Anne Barge ballgown with us in our Winter Park bridal boutique for her Italian wedding at Bella Collina. Pamela is a dream bride! Our entire team enjoyed helping her find her wedding gown and meeting her husband at each appointment. It’s not often we have the chance to get to know the grooms. Pamela is incredibly kind and bubbly and loves Audrey Hepburn, so TBF Owner & Stylist, Tali hand-selected the ‘Reverie’ gown by Anne Barge for her special day. This gown has Pamela’s sweet and fun personality through the beading and the classic taste of Audrey Hepburn.
Congratulations, Pamela & Brian! We wish you the happiest first year of marriage.

Where was your first date? : Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs
How did your partner propose? : Brian took me to Sunset Key Island resort in Key West as my surprise birthday get-a-way. I didn't know where we were going until we started to drive toward Key Largo. On 6/14, he proposed on the beach after a great romantic dinner at sunset on the Sunset Key island with no one around... just the two of us... it was beautiful and TOTALLY unexpected.
What was your dress experience like? : INCREDIBLE! I found my beautiful Ann Burgh dress with my fiance, Brian by my side. It was the sweetest, private and intimate moment I will NEVER forget.
Tali and Roberta were gracious, professional, friendly and hospitable. They embody the bride experience! Tali made every moment, every encounter, every visit to the Bridal Finery so special. SHE IS AMAZING! Tali listens to you, and she will do everything to make sure that you look GORGEOUS and feeling best on your wedding day.
I love the fact that Brian and I were the only couples in the store. I didn't feel rushed. I felt like I was THE ONLY BRIDE in the world, and everyone was there for ME. The dress selection was overwhelmingly gorgeous! I wanted all of them! LOL. The dresses they have are one of kind, no two are alike, exquisite, beautiful and stunning! I had so much fun trying on dresses. They have thought of everything from dresses, accessories, and undergarments.
After my wedding, I have reached out to Tali to figure out what I should do with my dress, and she helped me re-imagined my beautiful wedding dress. I LOVE how my dress turned out and now, I can wear my re-imagined wedding dress for so many other occasions instead of keeping in the box or sell it.
THANK YOU, Tali and the team for making my dress buying experience so wonderful! EVERY Bride should and deserve the same experience as I did!
Where was your wedding? What did you decide on that space?: Bella Collina!! Brian and I LOVE italy. We would have loved to get married in Italy but we couldn't, so we found the 2nd best alternative. Bella! We loved the property and it feels like Italy without going to Italy. Our photos are amazing..
What wedding planning advice do you have for other brides? : For me, this is my 2nd marriage; therefore, I had a very different approached to palling our wedding. Maybe little non-traditional.I wanted my best friend who is my fiance, Brian, to be a part of every planning process. We have shared so may intimate moments through the process and we wouldn't have it any other way. Having your partner for like to be a part of planning, lessen the stress of planning and it even brought us closer.
For us, having a very clear idea of what we wanted in our wedding helped us accomplish the big things earlier in the wedding planning. For example, we got engaged on 6/14, we found the venue on 7/8, found the dress on 7/14 and secured photographer, videographer and DJ within the month. :)
Where was your honeymoon? : We went 7 nights/8 days Disney Cruise to western Caribbean/St. Thomas and Tortola.
