Des Moines, IA, United States
My husband and I met 9 years ago in Mexico while enjoying our “Senior Spring Breaks” in High School. After years of long distance we moved to the same state where we got engaged and married! Our fairy tale wedding took place downtown Des Moines, Iowa on State Capitol grounds in front of a BEAUTIFUL monument! The location is really not meant for weddings but I was determined! The skyline views were breathtaking. Our reception was held in a historic venue and our guests danced the night away with station style food, cocktails and a live band. It was perfect.

Emily wore Tara Keely style 2258 purchased at Schaffer’s in West Des Moines, IA.

Emily’s Bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions style 5359

Huntington Beach, CA, United States
Although we both reside in Arizona we wanted a beach wedding and chose to have our wedding in Surf City USA-Huntington Beach, CA. We chose to have our ceremony on the beach in the late afternoon and our reception at the beautiful boutique hotel, Shorebreak Hotel right on Pacific Coast Highway. We danced the night away with our family and friends, ate to our hearts content, and enjoyed all the beauty and fun California had to offer!

Our day and my dress couldn’t have been better even in my dreams!

Maastricht, Netherlands
Our wedding was branded as the Bear & Fox wedding because we call each other so. We got married at Château de la Motte. I fell in love with my Hayley Paige dress online. I decided to order it at the JLM Couture Flagship Salon and went to pick it up one month before the wedding from West Hollywood and traveled with it back to Amsterdam. My Carrie dress was a dream come true! I had 11 bridesmaids, all of which wore long gowns of their choice, in nuances of pale pink. I love mismatched bridesmaids dresses. This way every girl can keep to the designs that they are most comfortable in.

Boston, MA, United States

Our wedding day was the highlight of our lives. Andrew and I were married at St. Mary’s in Charlestown, and we held our reception at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

I wanted a classic wedding gown that was elegant and timeless for a church ceremony, harbor-chic for our reception, and also light and flexible so that I could move on the dance floor. Tara Keely style 2308 was the first dress I tried on at Madeleine’s Daughter. It was absolutely perfect, and it really was everything I was looking for in a wedding gown. I bought it that day!

Planning our big day of course started with the perfect dress. A destination wedding was our way to celebrate with everyone longer than one day. Love and laughter is how we live our life and in turn was what we wanted our wedding to represent with friends and family. The beach, loved ones and one heck of a party was an amazing way to start our life together.

Chelsey wore Lazaro style 3213 purchased from Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A few years ago before I even met my now husband, I saw a picture of a bride in the 9102 dress and knew that was going to be my wedding dress one day. Designer Jessica Williams was going to be in Chicago for a trunk show and I knew I had to meet her and try on my dream dress. It was the first dress I tried on, and I knew right away that it was the one. It was perfect! The dress is timeless, romantic & matched our venue perfectly.

Tiffany wore Alvina Valenta style 9102 purchased at Dimitra’s Bridal Couture in Chicago, IL!

Our wedding took place at Bella Collina Country Club in Montverde, FL. Made us feel like we were transplanted in Tuscany, Italy!

We wanted our wedding to be a formal, black tie affair. The day of our wedding we both felt very calm and anxious at the same time. Our ceremony took place in the beautiful Atrium of Bella Collina and our reception was in their new ballroom. Our wedding day will forever be etched in our hearts as the best day of our lives and the beginning of our forever.

Mike proposed aboard my families boat, using code flags that spelled “Marry Me”. It only took me a few seconds to figure out what it said, at which point I started crying and was overwhelmed with joy. We decided to get married on the coast of Maine where I grew up, and where Mike spent summers. Our wedding day was perfect. The weather was beautiful and the setting was pristine. We were married on the waters edge, where a tented reception followed. Dancing started well before sunset, and continued through the night to the wee hours of the morning!

Brydon wore Tara Keely style 2308 purchased from Flair in Boston, MA.

Brandon and I were very specific with our wedding priorities: we wanted it to be beautiful, casual, and most of all – fun. We got married in the desert of Las Vegas and embraced the natural beauty with a Mexican theme complete with sangria, mariachi bands, papel picado, and maracas!

Sean and I met at work. I thought he was so handsome so I asked him to come over and help me bake for a baking content for work. That turned out to be the first of many perfect dates.

Our love story is that of pure serendipity. Chris and I met by chance, as a friend of mine met him one evening and said “you must meet my friend, Raven, I think you both would be great together! We met, fell in love, got engaged on a trip to Paris and ended up getting married at The Foundry in Long Island City in the most romantic setting surrounded by our closest friends and family. We had a whimsical outdoor reception overlooking the city skyline over sunset- it was magical!
