Real Brides: Eileen

Neil and I both grew up in Syracuse, NY. We met in Summer 2009 during a mutual friend’s porch hang. We were both secretly smitten, but the timing was never right. Whenever I was single, he was dating someone. Whenever he was single, I was dating someone. Two years later, I moved to NYC and of course THAT’S when we started dating! Neil and I dated long distance for two years and then I decided to move back home. Five years later, Neil proposed in front of all our friends on New Years Day! I only went to one bridal boutique! Can you believe it? I found “the one” at Mirror Mirror Inc. I already knew I wanted a tea length dress! My wedding shoes were Vivienne Westwood X Melissa and had big metallic red hearts on the toes, so I was looking for something classic with frothy tulle! The magical ladies at Mirror Mirror had me try on Moonlight Bridal’s GORGEOUS chantilly lace ball gown. When they told me you guys could transform it into a tea length, my mind was blown! Do you know what really sealed the deal, though? The dress was comfortable, supportive and EASY! Thank you for that. And THANK YOU for making your brides feel like queens!
