VR Bride: Ms. Ari Maerina

Destination: Majorca, Spain

"After Nikko proposed in 2020, we knew we wanted a long engagement and intentionally scheduled our wedding for 2022. I still can’t believe the timing of it all.

I knew I wanted Vania as my dressmaker, so I contacted her ASAP. I was so excited at the idea of using piña for my gown to pay homage to our culture. Our initial meeting was so sweet, and Vania promptly sent over some sketches. Over the past year, she and her team worked so hard on making sure all the details were right — even with the time difference and the pandemic. I’m so thankful for the final product. When I wore it, I thought of my grandma and how she would have loved to see me in it."

"All those late-night zooms and long email threads were so worth seeing Nikko’s face during his first look as well as while I walked down the aisle."
