When Sheryl Pressman saw the 1950’s-inspired tulle tea length ball gown on the rack at New York Bride and Groom, she knew it was the one. The Justin Alexander dress coordinated perfectly with her Old Hollywood wedding, which was complete with a signature “Coconut Grove” cocktail and table numbers featuring classic movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Sheryl scaled the staircase at The Peninsula Yacht Club for a grand entrance as Ryan adoringly awaited her arrival to the bottom where he was standing. The two then shared “expressions of love” they wrote themselves during an intimate ceremony. The newlyweds’ first dance to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” kicked off a glamorous night filled with family, friends, and lots of Hollywood glam.
