“To find my dress, I went to Bridals by Lori,” says Bridget. “They were so helpful. I had an idea of the style I wanted when I realized I found like 10 dresses with only slight variations. I knew it was the one when it had everything I wanted and was also under budget.
“Being the bride was amazing,” Bridget gushes. “Yes, it was all I dreamed it would be and more.”
