We are thrilled to share the story of Olvi’s bride Tory and her husband Brian. An amazing and fit couple who met each other at the gym, we totally believe it is a great place to create strong bonds!
”My husband’s name is Brian and we met back in 2012 at our CrossFit gym (CrossFit Wicked) in Middleton, MA. A little over a year later—after being good friends—we started dating. On December 9, 2016, he asked me to marry him. Brian wanted to take a selfie next to our Christmas tree and then he told me we got a new ornament. The second I turned to look for it, my eyes focused on this gorgeous sparkly diamond ring hanging on our tree.”
”Even before we got engaged I knew EXACTLY where I wanted to get married. It had been the place I dreamed of getting married at since I was just 7 years old… My parent’s home in Farmington, ME. There was no other place on earth that meant more to me. My parents live on 50 acres of land. There’s an old English barn on the property, a pond, 30 acres of wild blueberries, and the cutest white arbor and picket fence. However, there was a lot of work to be done! The barn was chock-full of old dusty equipment and just things that had accumulated over the last 20+ years. It was a total mess. But with a lot of hard work and help from contractors, landscapers, and my parents (of course) everything came together exactly how I had imagined it would.
It was the most perfect backyard Maine wedding with soft rustic details, an incredible open bar, and it was such a special place.”
”I also thought you might want to hear more about how and why I chose YOUR dress! I had made two appointments on the same day to pick out my wedding dress with my mom and two of my bridesmaids. The first place we went (Tulle Bridal in Andover, MA) was a cute intimate boutique. I had originally said that my budget would be $1,500 so the girl I was working with pulled some dresses for me to try on and we headed into the dressing room. The 5th dress she pulled out she said, “This is a bit over your budget, but I want you to see how it feels. It’s stretchy, like yoga pant material.” I live in gym clothes so hearing that made me perk up. The second I got into the dress I knew I wouldn’t be able to wear anything else. It was so comfortable, I could move freely, I didn’t feel itchy or constricted like all of the other dresses made me feel. I tried on two other Olvi’s styles, but ended up sticking with the very first one I had tried on. It was perfect! I ended up canceling my appointment with the other bridal shop because I knew nothing else would EVER compare.”
”THANKS for making the most comfortable and gorgeous dresses!!”
