Wedding Wednesday: The Gower Wedding

Jon & Becky Gower | April 27, 2013 | Photography by Photographic Dreams

Jon Gower managed to surprise Becky with an Asian-inspired cold pasta dinner picnic on the beach, where he later proposed. Becky's veil was unique for her wedding. A princess style cut and made of Belgium lace, Becky is the fourth generation to wear the veil (first worn by her great grandmother on her wedding day!). Becky's Slovenian heritage were honored with two special Slovenian desserts, while they incorporated military traditions in for Jon's Navy Lieutenant position. Their purple decor stood out in the details, including Becky's purple shoes. Becky says one of her favorite moments of the wedding day was when she took Jon's hand after walking down the aisle. "Holding hands is something we do quite often, so holding his hand was something very normal in a very unique moment...It was special because it was exclusive to us."
