Wow! These past few months have been a dream. It has been the most amazing time of my life and I can’t believe I am now Mrs. Marni Harvey. Sorry I’ve been so mia on StyleontheRise.com but I was in major wedding mode and at the end, it was all worth it. The entire weekend was beyond anything I could have ever imagined! We kicked it off at Lavo in NYC with our rehearsal dinner and the surprises started there. First, my bridesmaids roasted me and literally had me on the floor crying of laughter – I have to say they had some great material. No one knows me better than them! Then, my cousin wrote a song to sing to me and my husband… I am still in shock! It was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for us. Check it out!
When it came to deciding what to wear to my rehearsal din, I knew exactly what I wanted, a show-stopping dramatic dress. I didn’t want to wear white since my wedding dress was of course white, but I knew I wanted to make a statement. I am obsessed with high-low hems and all things gold so naturally I fell in love with this one! It was flowy, elegant and just had that chic bridal vibe. My shoes were a present from my husband… gold sparkle Jimmy Choo’s. It was the perfect match. I paired it with the most gorgeous jewelry from Eden Presley. I was in gold heaven and never wanted it to end! There are so many exciting things to come…. I can’t wait to share everything with you!
