A Winter Greenhouse Wedding at Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfield, Michigan

When determining the guest list for their December nuptials, veterinarians Bianca Buffa (29) and Nicholas Vito (29) knew one specific attendee would come as a surprise to the others. “All of our guests lit up,” Bianca says of having Gaia, the couple’s French bulldog, don a floral wreath collar for her guided walk down the aisle. “Hearing everyone’s reaction was one of my favorite memories of the evening.” Moments later, Bianca made a grand entrance of her own wearing a sleeved gown and faux-fur, satin-lined cape hand-sewn by her mother for the occasion. “The sleeves felt appropriate for a winter wedding and gave my dress more of a regal feel,” she says of the timeless design.
