Jowita + Adrian

by | Jun 27, 2023 | Real weddings

Today we’re proud to feature the beautiful wedding of Jowita and Adrian.  

According to the bride, “Our journey started on our trip to Norway on our 5 year dating anniversary where we took a reindeer sleigh ride to see the Northern Lights. Adrian proposed to me in the most romantic way. Before even leaving Europe, Adrian and I already booked our church and wedding venue!!!

“I knew I had to find a dress….fast because we only had about 2 months to plan our wedding. So I was asking around at work and one of my co workers (whose dress I loved) recommended Kathryn’s! 

“I went to another bridal shop and they did not have much to choose from (for my quick timeframe) but when I walked into Kathryn’s….they said they would make it happen no matter the timeline! 

“I also didn’t get the “oh it’s so fast I don’t know if we can get anything in time” comment. I was welcomed with open arms at Kathryn’s! Also not to mention how cute the whole store is! From the chandeliers to the racks and racks of wedding dresses! Also I love that it is the cutest little house so taking a picture with my wedding dress outside the shop was a must when I picked it up!!

“There also was no limit to trying on dresses, I had a very simple style and we tried on so many dresses until we found the perfect style for me! I kept apologizing for being difficult! But all I felt was support! All I wanted was white and plain BUT with the Cinderella feel! (Poofy!) 

“The best part about Kathryn’s was how intimate it was. Lana knew my story with my mom….and she had my mom come through the back entrance so that she didn’t have to walk as far/up so many stairs. It’s the little details that mean the most. And having my mom there and feeling the support and love from everyone at Kathryn’s…really was special. I will never forget it. And, I will recommend Kathryn’s to everyone I know!!” ~ real bride Jowita
