Today’s real wedding in Whiteville, NC is all kinds of gorgeous. We’re talking serious eye candy here folks; the most enchanting outdoor venue, the most romantic entrance by riding a horse carriage, elegant details, beautiful style and exquisite attention to detail. And at the centre of it all, the sweetest pair, Estefania & Joshua. We’re also swooning over Estefania’s bridal look wearing that off-the-shoulder ball gown with amazing chapel train, which was a perfect fit for her royal wedding!

Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?
My advice is to be mentally prepared for your plans to not go as planned. Your wedding day is special and you want it to be perfect… but mistakes can happen and that is, okay! When the day is over, you and your spouse will remember that day being perfect because you married each other, and that’s what really matters.
Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?
I always dreamed of a royal, romantic, and elegant wedding. I fell in love with this dress when I first laid eyes on it and I had to make my vision come to life! Plenty of sequins and crystals, and the colors burgundy and gold gave it a time-less touch.
Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?
We met in Texas during our military training in 2015. Once we graduated from training, we began to date and endured a long-distance relationship, I in California and he in North Carolina. On a snowy day, in January 2018, he proposed to me at Lake Waccamaw, N.C. and we decided to have our wedding in N.C. We now live in California together and our love continues to grow!
Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”?
Choose to be loving through the good times and the bad times because love is not only a feeling, but also an action that you can show and give to those you care about.
Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?
My husband and I had a first dance and a surprise dance during the reception and that was most memorable to me. Dancing with him is always fun and romantic!
Q: What did you love most about your #Cocomelody dress (es)?
The quality, the details, the craftsmanship, basically everything about it was impeccable! The value of the wedding dress was worth thousands and I loved the price Cocomelody offered at the time of my purchase!
Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?
Tyler at the Los Angeles store was very helpful and accommodating during my appointment. Even though the dress sample was not available in store, I trusted Cocomelody to make and deliver my dress in time. I had the dress bustled and the seamstresses did a wonderful job. Overall, Cocomelody is great and 5/5 stars! THANK YOU!
