To hear more from syako and to see a gallery of her wedding photos,


How many dresses did you go through before finding the one?

I had found a fabulous dress the first time I went dress shopping and it was very inexpensive and I loved it. I had already paid a down payment and everything. My sister (and bridesmaid) urged me to go to a Watters trunk show the next weekend at a local boutique. She said it wouldn't hurt to look at a few more styles and we needed to pick out bridesmaid's dresses. We were there and one of the Watters specialists was helping and she pulled the dress. I looked at it on the hanger and kind of was unsure, but when we put it on and I felt the beautiful dutchess silk satin and the way it hugged all my curves, I was so in love. The next day I called the boutique with the other dress, luckily they sold Watters, too, so we just switched my down payment and ordered it. I'm so glad my sister was so wise!

My dress was by Watters

Where we got married... Estes Park, CO

It was Dec. 30, so a bit chilly, I had a cute little cover up though.

My sister was 6 months pregnant. We got her a dress by Watters and had it altered to fit her belly.

A close up of my necklace, I had it designed especially for me by Jeanne Nicole.

My sister's dress - notice the pregnant belly! :)
