Beautiful Transitions:
Friendship To Romance & Ideas to Reality

Rachel and Andre began dating in December of 2015, but their story does not begin here!

Thanks to a friend’s Punk Rock concert at the Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago, Dre and Rachel made a connection a whole two years prior. Their relationship truly shows the beauty that comes with the progression from friends to lovers. They had the chance to build a strong foundation platonically before starting to date. Most importantly, throughout it all, they grew together and brought out the very best in each other.

Just as Rachel and Dre’s friendship blossomed into a romance, all of their ideas for their dream wedding day blossomed into realities at the South Second in Wisconsin. The scene they envisioned for their party “rock show”, truly came to life by way of the décor as well as the all-black attire sported by their friends and family. These details, although stunning, were not the only factor making this event a night to remember, it was also the environment fostered by the guests themselves who clearly had the time of their lives. Rachel says “there was barely anyone in their seats all night. Safe to say…We danced the night away!”

When asked about her experience at Bella Bleu Bridal, Rachel takes a fond and candid look back at her day shopping with us:

“I need Viviana to start selling other items besides bridal gowns, so I have a reason to go see her and Colton and shop! From my first appointment, Viviana and Colton made me feel like my crazy was normal. They understood the picture I had in my head but allowed me to play dress up and try all different types of dresses! I was validated when I needed to take some time to think about my decision. Upon my second visit, I was so excited to try on my top choices again! HUGE THANK YOU <3
