Love & Lace in San Juan: ABC’s “The Chew” Evette Rios Gets Married in Wedding Gown by Barefoot Bride
ABC’s “The Chew” field correspondent Evette Rios and her groom, Stephen, had a a photo shoot to try on several wedding gowns a few days before her San Juan, Puerto Rico on May 19th. Her photographer friend, Franco LaCosta pulled some dresses from Kleinfeld’s (Say Yes To The Dress). We recommend that you have your friends or family take pictures of you in the gowns that you try on while vising bridal stores. That way you can look at all of them for a few days before you make your decision. It also is great to document the experience for your scrapbook or blog. Take pictures of your family too and don’t forget to take them out for lunch for giving up their time to help you look for your wedding gown.
Evette Ríos was named by The December/January 2012 issue of Latina Magazine as one of the 50 reasons to love being Latina. She paid tribute to her Puerto Rican roots by getting married in the commonwealth. Evette even showed a dash of Caribbean coral with her peep-toe pumps while holding hands with her beau in front of Puerto Rican street art. Her lace halter wedding gown was a custom creation designed by Barefoot Bride in Red Bank, New Jersey.
We think the wedding gown is a perfect symbolization of San Juan and old San Juan; a modern split and classic lace. Fans flock to her website, evetterios.com, for her fun take on food, life and style.
