She sold me my Acura TSX at the young age of 19 this was 3-4 years ago.  I was so upset coming from a local Volkswagen dealership and she got me as a client.  I was pretty pissed while we were test driving the car I was interested in. Luckily, I didn’t scare away her that evening. I bought that car from her that very day, she ended up getting the same exact one and a wonderful friendship came out of it.  I didn’t even realize she was that young. But it didn’t matter… I thought she was amazing and I now call her one of my best friends.  I think we’ve been long distance besties longer than we were ever friends here in Sarasota.  I love this girls Minnesota accent, sense of humor and loving nature. She has been my rock the past couple of months too…always texting me just to check-up on me and just say hello.  I’m so grateful Volkswagen pissed me off that night and I ended up at the Acura dealership…otherwise we would have never met.

Megan, Tony and her family planned a trip to visit Sarasota and stay by Siesta Key Beach just right before she gives birth. I was so happy because I would get to see her belly, hug her, meet Tony and take her images.  I would have been so upset if someone else took them…haha!  I know she would have been too.

She looked amazing that evening and I loved watching her and Tony together.  I’m so happy for you both! I can’t wait to meet the little man!

Megan & Tony – I’m so happy I finally got to meet you Tony!!!!  Megan, I love you my friend… I’m so blessed to have you in my life. I’m so excited for you to embark on this new journey.  You will be such an amazing and fun mom!  Abe is lucky to have you both as parents.

Below is just a preview of the gowns that came in this week.  All are STUNNING!  I love the Coco dress from their Fall 2016 collection that they previewed this month at bridal week in New York. The lace tiered gown looked so gorgeous on our model Alene. I loved that I was able to get a sneak preview of their gowns this morning during our shoot.

Special thank you to Alene Sartori Fowler for modeling, Liz & Sam of Influence Style & Kelly Kane for the venue.
