We are so excited to have Olivia as our Bella Bride of the Week! Olivia and Simon were married last May at Pippin Hill Vineyard and Farms. We loved the sophistication, playfulness, and different cultures that were incorporated into the wedding.
“We had a fablous fantastic wedding at Pippin Hill Vineyards and Farms. The dress was beautiful, traditional, but also fun and very much felt like “me”. The day could not have been better and I thank Bella Rosa boutique for outfitting me for this special and important event!”

If you only had three words to describe your wedding, they would be… ?
“Fun, happy, and magical.”
What is your personal style, and how did you incorporate that in your wedding?
”My husband is Ugandan and Tanzanian and so we incorporated many aspects of his culture into the wedding (including a second dress).”
What made you pick your dress?
“I always thought I’d have a big dress and I had a lot of fun wearing it. It was also figure flattering :)”
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions, or memories that you love most about your wedding?
“I’m glad we decided to dance for about an hour at the end of the night. I’m glad I decided to have all make-up and hair on-site so that the entire day was relaxing and enjoyable. I am also glad that we were able to have Simon’s traditions throughout the ceremony and reception so it was really a reflection of both of us.”
If you could give a future bride one piece of advice, what would it be?
“Early on, find out what is important to your loved ones (finace, mom, dad) and how much input they want so that everyone is on the same page with planning. And get a wedding planner if possible.”
Congratulations Olivia and Simon! :)
