Tori On Episode 3: Shabby Chic Wedding
What did you think of Erienne and Jeremy losing their venue 3 weeks before their wedding?
I felt devastated for Erienne and Jeremy losing their wedding venue and so close to wedding date. I knew I HAD to help them. I wanted to make all their dreams come true. The wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your lives, not the most stressful. I knew 3 weeks would be crazy time wise, but I had to help them.

What did you think of the Shabby Chic theme they had in mind?
I'm a HUGE fan of Shabby Chic. In my 20's, my apartment was all Shabby Chic. It’s one of my favorite styles. It’s beautiful and cozy. I was super excited to do a Shabby Chic wedding!
You saw a lot of yourself in Erienne. What similarities can you say that both of you share?
Erienne reminded me a lot of myself. She's this pretty inside and out. She’s smart, sweet, and a creative girl, and I felt that she didn't see that. I wanted her to see how amazing she is. I used to be the same way. I never thought highly of myself no matter what others said. It’s about finding your inner voice and finding self-confidence within and then making it happen for yourself.
Why did you give Erienne a mini makeover? How do you think it changed the way she felt about herself?
I wanted to help Erienne with a makeover. She's a beautiful girl, so it wasn't about changing her appearance - it was about doing small things that would make her feel better on her special day and help with her self confidence.

What did you think of Erienne’s idea of doing a boudoir photo shoot for her gift for Jeremy?
I was excited about her wanting to do a boudoir shoot for Jeremy. I wanted to help her feel amazing about herself on the day, and I was excited to style her and the shoot!
How did you come up with the idea of the dove release?
Erienne told me she loves birds and felt like her and Jeremy were two lovebirds that found each other. I knew somehow I'd like to incorporate birds into the wedding. Then, I thoughts white doves that symbolize love and peace would be perfect to release during the ceremony. It symbolizes their love and the peace they both have found now joining together as one starting their journey together.
What was your favorite part of this wedding?
My favorite part of the wedding was our idea to have Erienne rowed over to the island instead of the typical walk down the aisle. I thought it was beyond romantic and very fairy tale-esque!
