Danny and Emily

Wailea, HI, United States
We wanted an intimate stress-free wedding and we knew the best way to accomplish that was to have a destination wedding. Maui was the perfect choice for so many reasons. Our 43 guests enjoyed a 3-day celebration at the gorgeous Andaz Resort, which begin with a welcome reception and ended with a farewell breakfast, equipped with a full rainbow backdrop. The main event took place on the Andaz lawns, with the ocean sunset framing the event to perfection. The location, our family, friends and every single wedding detail made this one of our best days!

Michael and Alisha

San Francisco, CA, United States
Our wedding was set at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall in Union Square, with Beaux-Arts architecture, that could take your breath away. The weather was cold for us, for the duration of the trip and yet strangely enough, the sun came out and it was absolutely glorious weather on the day of the wedding.

The reception was held at McCormick and Kuleto’s with PERFECT sunset views of the Bay Area. It was romantic and elegant yet fun and humbling. Surrounded by our loved ones, we were truly grateful to have such a day.

Alisha wore Hayley Paige style 6413-Dori purchased from Boca Raton Bridal in Boca Raton, FL.

Jesse and Cara


Holland, MI, United States
Jesse and I met in April 2013. My ride to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball national championship game fell through at the last minute. My cousin knew Jesse was planning on going around the same time and set it up for us to ride down together. We spent 6 hours in the car as complete strangers and from there we never looked back! Jesse proposed on Christmas day 2014. We got married on September 26th at the Felt Mansion in Holland, MI. Our family and friends traveled from all over to celebrate with us. It was the best day ever!

Cara wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1450-River purchased from Couture Closet in La Grange, KY.

Carson and Jennifer



Dallas , TX, United States
Carson and Jennifer hate going to traditional weddings — they’re typically pretty boring to them. So, when it came time to plan their own they made sure to be true to themselves and give all of their guests a rockin’ good time. Gold glitter, pure white floral, walking down the aisle in Hayley Paige to Van Halen’s cover of Pretty Woman, a cover band wearing mullet wigs, a cupcake tower dusted with gold all in the gorgeous House of Blues Dallas…it was everything a non-traditional wedding should be – FUN!

Jennifer wore Hayley Paige style 6315-Guindon purchased from Stardust Celebrations in Plano, TX.

Brian and Ashleigh


Highlands Ranch, CO, United States
Guests could find details of Ashleigh and Brian in everything — from the rustic, outdoor setting with glamorous, vintage details. Ashleigh and Brian wanted their wedding to feel like a fancy family BBQ with great food and a great party…and that’s exactly what they got. But the moment that stood out to Ashleigh and Brian more than any other moment during the celebration was when they were able to see each other for the first time.

David and Lindsey


Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Since we met, Steamboat, CO has always held a special place in our heart. Given that, we knew it was where we should marry. The scenery was unbelievable and the day everything we had been dreaming of. I knew my dress was the one from the minute I tried it on. A bit unexpected for the location, but so very “me.

Edward and Angela


Coral Gables, FL, United States
We wanted an over the top formal wedding. We were both in graduate school on opposite sides of the country for 75% of our relationship and this was our big night. We had family and friends from all over the country. We were all about glitz and glamour and it was the night of our dreams!

Kevin and Rebecca


Dobson, NC, United States
5-2-15 was picture perfect on every level–sunny, 75, and the most gorgeous sunset gracing the NC Yadkin Valley skyline. Rebecca & Kevin were the first couple to be wed at Shelton Vineyards in NC as this was an important location in their love story. Rebecca, a native NC belle, & Kevin, an OH transplant, wanted their wedding to be outdoors, intimate amongst their closest friends & family, and one big party—which is exactly what they accomplished! The ceremony was held over a pond on the vineyard & the reception immediately followed in a beautifully decorated tent overseeing the lush vines.

Narragansett, RI, United States
Kristin and Thomas both attended The Ohio State University. They met Junior year when Tom became Kristin’s neighbor & their friendship turned in to an amazing relationship. They moved to his home state of Rhode Island after graduation & a few years later they were engaged! They had a small church wedding with 90 people attending. The reception was held at one of the most unique locations, The Towers, which is a historic brick building built over a road and overlooks the beautiful Narragansett beach. They couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

Adam and Kelly


Notre Dame, IN, United States
We met in college. I went to Saint Mary’s College and Adam went to the University of Notre Dame, across the street. It only seemed natural that our wedding be where we met, fell in love, and our love story began. Our ceremony was in a chapel in the dorm I lived in on Saint Mary’s campus, and our reception was in a ballroom on the campus of Notre Dame. It was an elegant affair with a touch of sparkle through our jewelry, centerpieces, candles, and lighting. It was beautiful, emotional, and magical.

Indianapolis, IN, United States
My husband and I met at Indiana University during our sophomore year. We dated throughout college and then had a long distance relationship from Chicago to Indianapolis for 2 years. He moved to Indiana to be with me and my family and our little Shih Tzu! We got engaged during a trip to Cancun, Mexico on our 5 year anniversary. Our interfaith ceremony and reception were held at the Conrad Indianapolis Hotel. Our wedding colors were emerald, blush, and gold to reflect the spring season. We danced the night away with glow sticks and had a confetti canon send off!

Frank and Kimberly

Astoria, NY, United States
Kim and Frank both grew up in Centereach and went to middle school, high school, and college together (and even made their communions together!). But they did not become friends until eleven years ago, during their time at the University at Albany. Kim and Frank were good friends during their time at Albany, they got along really well, but never even considered dating. That all changed when they both moved to Astoria in the spring of 2009. They have been together even since, and the rest is history!!

Joseph and Lindsey

Long Branch, NJ, United States
Our wedding day was all we could ever imagine and MORE! A sunny October day, some amazing friends and family, a beautiful venue and a killer band really made our day and night one we will never forget. My dress was not only stunning, it was so comfortable I didn’t even want to take it off.

Lawrence and Liz

me and Lawrence 105/11/2015
Casares, Spain
We decided on an intimate wedding in Southern Spain with our closest friends. The theme was rustic and romantic, with a ceremony in the grounds of an incredible Hacienda. I had fallen in love with my dress about a week after we got engaged and even though it was in a boutique over 200 miles away I knew I had to have it! Lawrence had no idea I was going to wear blush pink, yet the suit he had handmade had a blush pink waistcoat which perfectly matched my dress – it was like it was meant to be ♥

Liz wore Blush style 1258 purchased from Bride to Be in Manchester, UK.

Daniel and Juliann

Jamesport, NY, United States
All week we were told that there was going to be a storm on our wedding day. We were getting married at Martha Clara Vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island outside in front of the Vines so naturally this made us a little nervous. The weather was beautiful and sunny in the morning. Come ceremony time the storm came in fast but literally split up right over the Vineyard. A few scattered rain drops and gray clouds in the background made for some gorgeous photos. I guess we already have all the luck we need.

Juliann wore Lazaro style 3063, purchased at Bridal Reflections in Carle Place, NY.

Nicholas and Samantha


Walt Disney World , FL, United States
My husband and I met when we were 14 years old. On the day we were married we had been together for 14 years. We both grew up in “Disney” families and shared a love for all things Disney. So you could say that getting married in Disney World was always part of the plan. It took over 2 years to plan our wedding and make sure that everyone we wanted to share it with could attend. With about 200 guest in attendance it was a once in a lifetime experience; one that our friends and family would cherish forever.

Tucker and Brooke


Gurley, AL, United States
We had our fairytale wedding at the beautiful Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation, just outside of Huntsville, Alabama where we both grew up. The beautiful mountains surrounding the area is what drew us to this venue, as we both love hiking. Every little detail was absolutely wonderful, making our special day absolute perfection! What a joy it was to finally become husband and wife!

Luke and Jessica


Palos Verdes Estates , CA, United States
Our Story best told at vimeo.com/129020861

We were married in the beautiful Neighborhood church of Palos Verdes Estates. The guests overlooked the bluffs into the water as they sat in the church. The party continued at Trump National Golf Club LA. Cocktail hour included taking photos in the photo booth, and getting portraits drawn by the character artists. The sun set in bright oranges as the guests peered into to never-ending ocean. The centerpieces were jaw dropping, the candy bar had everything you could imagine. We danced all night with our light up personalized glow sticks.

Geoff and Ashlee


Wilmington, IL, United States
Geoff and Ashlee are a great couple because they are completely opposite, which their friends often make fun of them about. Their relationship is strong is that they support each other’s dreams and goals and push one another to achieve them. The couple married on a gorgeous day in September. The wedding ceremony took place at the St. Rose Catholic Church and the reception was outdoors in a clear top tent in the beautiful backyard of the home Ashlee grew up in. Ashlee and Geoff danced the night away with 250 of their dearest family members and friends. Bridesmaids:

Jason and Robin

606 (2)

New York City, NY, United States
In order to really get an idea of our love story, I felt it was best for me to give you my written wedding vows:
Jason and I have been together for almost 10 years (yes, really that long) & through those 10 yrs, I’ve been doing my homework (being the type A person I am). Being an oncology nurse you get to meet a lot of couples going through a very dark time in their lives. Some were together for 10 yrs, some 20, and some even 60 years! And I asked them all the same question. “What is your secret to a happy & successful marriage?” And boy did I get some great answers! From never go to bed angry, to keep “dating” each other, make each laugh, to having separate bathrooms…I listened and I promise to try to do all of those things and more. But the best piece of advice that stuck with me was to marry your best friend, because if you marry your best friend- you will never feel alone, you will always be important and you will always feel loved. And I stand here today so happy and at peace, because I am marrying my best friend. And as your best friend and now wife, I vow that you will never feel alone, you will always be important and you will always feel loved, always and forever.

San Pedro, Belize
Patrick and I met on April 11th, 1995. We spent the next twenty years building an amazing life together. Although we weren’t married, we were always fully committed to each other. We put our focus on building a life and a successful company together instead of a wedding.

We thought it would be a great celebration to make it official on our actual twenty year anniversary. Patrick surprised me by booking a wedding in Belize! We spent a week celebrating with twenty-seven of our closest friends. It was a magically wedding week full of abundant love and friendship.

Germond and Nikki


Pleasanton , CA, United States
My husband and I met in LA in April 2010. I lived in New York and he lived in San Francisco. We had a long distance relationship for 4 years, seeing each other at least once a month. Alternating, one month he came to NY, next month I would come to San Francisco. He proposed on our 3 year anniversary in Washington D.C. He is my best friend, my heart, my Gummybear. I knew for over 2 years this was my dress. I knew when I got married I’d be wearing a Lazaro. My dress was everything!

Nikki wore Lazaro style 3153 purchased at Bridal Galleria in San Francisco, CA.

Zack and Shelby


Dade City, FL, United States
My wedding was better than my dream. The weather was beautiful on the day I married the love of my life. My dress from Blush by Hayley Paige with some personal touches was the most perfect dress for the free-flowing boho/woodsy feel I wanted. And Ashley at The White Magnolia Tampa was the sweetest salesperson I’ve ever met. I ordered my gown after trying on a sample from a Blush trunk show at TWM, and the sample size actually fit me perfectly. That was easy! My dress and entire wedding day were a dream come true.

Shelby wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1407, Lotus (white custom bodice accents) purchased from The White Magnolia in Tampa, Florida.

Rob and Sarah

Jaco, CA, United States
Zephyr Palace is situated high atop a cliff with sweeping views of the ocean, lush jungle and mountains below.

I was the bride that literally tried on 100 dresses before I found “the one”. The moment I put on my AV gown I pictured myself waking down the isle and knew I had finally found it. One of the biggest highlights of the evening was that we surprised the entire wedding with a stupendous full firework show from the cliffs below! It was truly the best week of our lives and the wedding of our dreams.

Sarah wore Alvina Valenta style 9406 purchased from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in Los Angeles, California.
