Our first official Ashley Grace Bride was truly so special! Not only was she our first AG Bride to be married, but she is so near and dear to hearts because she is one of our own stylists! Rebekah and Dele originally met back in college in 2009. However, they actually didn’t begin dating until a few years later. After almost a year of dating, Dele proposed to Rebekah, and five short months later, they were married! Their wedding was so beautiful that this AG Bride was even featured on Maggie Sottero’s website wearing one of our gorgeous gowns!
On her wedding day, Rebekah wore a stunning, long-sleeved Maggie Sottero gown featuring gorgeous lace appliqués and a breathtaking low, open back. Wow! Did she look flawless! No wonder her now-husband cried when he first saw her walking down the aisle at the beautiful Bedford Columns.
The Special Day
Although the couple planned the entire event in just five short months, Rebekah says that the planning process was, surprisingly, not as stressful as she had thought it might be. In all the little details, she knew what was most important: WHOM she would marry. Rebekah and Dele wanted their wedding to be simple and fun. They chose to keep things as simple as possible so that they could focus on what’s important: vowing to love and honor each other for a lifetime. At the same time, they also wanted to be sure everyone had a great time as the two families became one!
When the big day finally arrived, despite the nerves she felt right before walking down the aisle, she was overwhelmingly content. She was just so ready to marry the love of her life! One of Rebekah’s most special memories from her day was when she saw that Dele had written her a sweet note on the bottom of her shoe, saying that he could not wait to marry her! How precious!
We love Rebekah and Dele, and words can’t express how happy we are for this sweet couple! Check out photos from this AG Bride’s special day below!
