Jillian thoroughly enjoyed wedding planning, putting years of dream wedding visions into reality and incorporating the Air Force since Lucas is a pilot in the USAF. Her favorite part of the wedding day was seeing Lucas for the first time. She had been nervous and anxious all morning but her worries washed away the moment she saw him and his smile. She was also relieved that he liked her dress!
Jillian's Matron of Honor Katie was a past Joielle bride whose wedding was featured on our blog last year. We love hearing from bridesmaids again when it's time to pick dresses for their own wedding!
Jillian's bridesmaids wore After Six by Dessy empire waist chiffon dresses in Platinum.
"Working with Joielle was a dream. Everyone was so accommodating for my 8 bridesmaids, who live all over the United States. All of the dresses arrived in a timely fashion which allowed time for alterations for my girls. They did an awesome job!"
One of Jillian's most memorable moments was when Lucas danced with his mother, who has Multiple Sclerosis and has been in a wheelchair for about 10 years.
"She knew she only has one mother-son wedding dance in a lifetime and agreed to share a dance with Lucas. He lifted her out of her chair to stand and they "danced" with one another. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. It was a beautiful moment that no one will forget."
What a touching memory to cherish. Wishing your whole family many years full of joy and love!
