Vanessa & Dillon Wed At The Oakview Terrace

Vanessa Dineen, co-owner of the bridal boutique Sash & Bustle, weds her best friend Dillon Holmes.

I reached out to Vanessa to find out a little more about her perfect day..

What was it like planning your wedding and also being in the industry?
I imagine most women feel very similar, planning my weeding was wonderful and dreamy but a lot of work and many late nights. I had a specific vision for our wedding day and thanks too many wonderful industry professionals our day was prefect. Since I work in the industry, and pretty much live and breathe weddings anyways, I already had an idea who I wanted involved in making each element prefect.

What is your most memorable moment?
My Husband and I shared a wonderful moment together before the ceremony when we first saw each other on our wedding day. Sharing our first look together was such an emotional special moment for us and will never be forgotten. Even better, since most of our photos were done prior to the ceremony we got to enjoy time with our guests for the rest of the day!

What was your most unexpected moment?
There was an overwhelming amount of emotions that took over the moment I walked into the wedding chapel with my mom and dad. Love seemed to be emanating from everyone in the room and for all that love to be there for me was just the best feeling, something I have never felt before and didn’t know to expect.
