Seria Powell is a bride on a budget who has purchased nearly everything for her wedding online—and it’s all turquoise. Her bridesmaids’ dresses are turquoise, her plastic flowers are turquoise…even the “booty panties” she plans on wearing during her honeymoon are turquoise. (They also have the words “Raheim’s Wife” bedazzled across the back.) So, quicker than Seria and her future husband Raheim can say “I do,” David Tutera rushes in and quickly transforms their somewhat uninspired, one-note wedding into an elegant and memorable affair where the color turquoise is still part of the décor—it just isn’t the whole décor. The plastic flowers…gone! The bridesmaid dresses…replaced with beautiful new gowns by famed designer Jenny Yoo. David even throws out the turquoise booty panties and takes Seria shopping at La Petite Coquette, one of New York’s finest lingerie boutiques. But perhaps the most amazing transformation is Seria herself. Beginning with high tea at the Plaza Hotel—and only days before her wedding—David turns this simple Brooklyn girl into a regal and sophisticated bride right out of Vogue.
