Manteo to Manhattan

Looking back on the 2011 Dream Wedding, I have to say that the road trip to New York ‘s Kleinfeld followed by a photo shoot in Times Square was one of the highlights. Tamarra, winner of the 2011 Dream Wedding, was accompanied by myself, Michelle Bunce of Jennette’s Pier, Mary Basnight of Basnight Photography and Benny Baldwin of Baldwin Video.  The 2011 Dream Wedding prize package, valued for $43,000, included a gift certificate towards a wedding gown that was graciously given by Kleinfeld themselves.

Kleinfeld is nationally renowned for its bridal gowns, service, and of course home to TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress”. Tamarra was whisked away for her private consultation and presented to us in several beautiful gowns. I remember when she came out in the Maggie Sottero diamond A-line gown with sweetheart neckline and ruffles I was speechless. Tamarra was absolutely stunning, so much so, that I became choked up and teary eyed. All I could say to her was “Yes to the Dress!”
