Tea-Length Gown With Flower Details

"I tried on dresses at maybe six stores between New York and New Orleans, with my mom and a number of friends, before finally finding my dress at a little local bridal shop less than a mile from my office, by myself while on my lunch break. I knew it was the one as soon as I saw it. The flower pattern breaks up the formality and keeps it fun," Tess says.
