The new bride, Patricia, on her special day day:

“Our wedding was held at the Bourne Mansion, a historic gold coast mansion in Long Island, New York. We began planning our wedding during the summer after our engagement, and without the help of a wedding planner. After visiting several venues, we finally fell in love with the Bourne, which captured the theme of  “old world elegance” that we wanted for our wedding, while accommodating our 300-person guest list.  Every detail of our reception – from the all-white high and low center pieces, to the all-white wedding cake with detail from the corset and pickups on my dress – was designed to capture this theme and my personal style of classic, timeless beauty.

My dresses – the first, a Maggie Sottero ball gown, and the second, a Reem Accra tulle gown, also resonated with the overall theme and elegance of the venue.”
