An Italian Romance at The Strater Hotel
Summer & Brent | March 3, 2018
From the bride… I am Italian and embrace the romance and regality Italy represents. My dad recently passed away and was 100% Italian; I wanted to give the nod to him. We chose the Strater Hotel for our day. We love the ambiance, the saloon, the quaint rooms, the haunted feeling at night.
I found a beautiful pre-owned couture Italian ivory lace beaded Steven Khalil dress, originally priced at $12k. I wanted a veil but didn’t want it covering the sheer illusion of the back of the dress nor the train. Plus I am 5’1 so it added tons of height next to my 6’4 groom.
We held the ceremony on the Henry Strater Stage. My handsome little boy Colten walked me down the aisle to “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran and Andres Bocelli. A live violinist chimed in when the song turned to Italian lyrics.
Our reception included a tenderloin carving station, pasta, cannolis, and lots of dancing and champagne.
Have fun and enjoy every minute of it.
