Cassandra's bridemaids looked beautiful too. We love those dresses. “I didn’t want my bridesmaids paying hefty amounts for dresses they would only wear once, so I opted for less expensive, but still beautifully styled gowns,” says the bride.

“I wanted the look to be classic so it was a must that they had black suits.  The groom chose the horizon blue handkerchief,” says Cassandra. “They wore Michael Kors tuxedos from Savii Formalwear.”Looking good fellas!

"The groom, he didn’t cry, but the look he gave me melted my heart," said Cassandra. "After the ceremony was over, my bridesmaids told me that while I was walking down the aisle he smiled and said, 'That’s my bride.' That’s enough for me!"

Cassandra's father passed away in the '90s, so her siblings shared in the joy of escorting her on her special day.

"It didn’t take long for me to realize he was definitely one I didn’t want to live this life without," says Cassandra. "He’s not 'The One', he’s 'The Only'; the only one for me."
