Bride Of The Week: Julia Stronach


Our beautiful GLbride of the week is: Julia Stronach. She wore the Odette gown from the Dolce Vita collection and here is her amazing story.

Julia actually first met her husband when she was 15, but never got together until eight years later. Each December, we had a break away in a lovely fishing town in Portugal called Olhao, and that was the place where he proposed one night while out for dinner on the Marina.

Julia told us she always knew she wanted a Galia Lahav dress (YESSS) as she had been a fan of the brand for many years. She said she was particularly drawn to both the Loretta and the #Odette gowns (of course, these gowns are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G), but something about the #Odette just had her and nothing else compared. The craftsmanship and quality of the dress was like nothing Julia had ever seen or touched before… the detail, the delicacy, and the shape. Julia says she will never forget how her dress made her feel on her special day, it is just a feeling you will remember FOREVER!

Julia and her husband got married in the Scottish Highlands, in a town called Aviemore, situated within the Cairngorm Mountains. There was still some snow visible, but it wasn’t too cold, so it was the absolute perfect place. The setting was just beautiful! They only had their immediate family and bridal party for the ceremony, but then had a larger party for the evening, which was lovely (it sounds like a great idea actually).

When we asked Julia about her favorite part of the day, she couldn’t answer as she said that every second of it was truly magical. From getting their hard and makeup done in the morning, to walking down the aisle with her dad, her grandmother giving a reading, singing their hymns, exchanging rings, their amazing meal of Balmoral chicken which is a traditional Scottish dish made with haggis and whiskey sauce, the mulled wine reception, their first dance which was to Birdy- Wings, to doing Scottish Ceilidh Dancing into the early hours. She said she wouldn’t change a thing, the day was everything she dreamed of and more!

The wedding sounds more than perfect and here is a little video of what the wedding actually looked! We hope all the love and happiness in the world for this amazing GLcouple.
