Though we currently live in Florida, Paul and I chose to have our wedding in our home state of Pennsylvania, in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh. Our mass took place at Sacred Heart Parish in Shadyside and we were honored to hold our reception at the historic Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum in Oakland.

My Hayley Paige dress was the first dress that I tried on and I couldn’t be happier with the way I felt in it on our wedding day. Hubby loved it too!

Elizabeth wore Hayley Paige style 6203, Gianna, and bridesmaids wore various Noir by Lazaro styles!

Cincinnati, OH, United States
Dave and I met the very first day of college at Miami University of Ohio. We immediately became close friends, and regularly saw each other in our shared co-ed dorm. By mid-October, we were dating. Almost 6 years later, Dave proposed at Miami under the Upham Arch, where legend states “if you kiss your true love, you will marry and the bond will never be broken”. We were then married on May 17, 2014 in Cincinnati Ohio.

Laura wore Lazaro style 3309.

Wayne and I got married in a beautiful historic home that predates the Civil War. This house, now named Twelve Oaks, was Margaret Mitchell’s inspiration for what the Twelve Oaks Estate should look like in Gone with the Wind. The weather was perfect on our May 3rd date and the guests enjoyed a perfect Southern evening, complete with mint juleps and dancing under the stars.

Lauren wore Lazaro style 3308 purchased at Bridal’s by Lori in Atlanta, GA.

Libertyville, IL, United States
We were married on a beautiful day in June at a forest preserve in Libertyville, Illinois. It was so amazing getting to see everything come together after a year and a half of planning. One of the best moments of my day was after I was all done getting ready was the reaction on Joey’s face when I saw him for our first look before the ceremony. My dress fit in perfectly with the romantic and rustic vibe that the nature preserve gave. My bridesmaids wore a Jim Hjelm Occasions bridesmaids dress that tied everything together perfectly!

Susan wore Tara Keely style 2056 purchased from Volles Bridal Boutique in Lake Zurich, IL. Her bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions style 5357.

Jesse and I met through a mutual friend, so we wanted our wedding to be all about love, fun and friends! We wanted it to be a big, fun party so we made sure the tunes were going all night long. We vacation every year in Hawaii and wanted to bring the casual vibe of the tropics to the desert! Our guests were treated to an ice cream bar with several different flavors of gelato and ice cream with all the fixings to go on top. Everyone had so much fun, they are still talking about it!

Kim wore Alvina Valenta style 9200 purchased from the JLM Couture Boutique in West Hollywood, CA.

Weddng Party09/07/2013
La Jolla, CA, United States
Four years after we began dating, we said “I do” at Estancia Resort La Jolla. Although the wedding day was truly magical, it was a bittersweet event. Unfortunately, Dave’s father passed away a year earlier, and moments before the wedding Dave’s best man- his brother, was unable to attend due to the arrival of his first child. Although there may have been loved ones missing, it was the perfect day because at the end of it, Dave and I were husband and wife! I have never felt more beautiful than how I felt on my wedding day.

Alicia wore Lazaro style 3004 purchased from from Mon Amie Bridal Salon in Costa Mesa, CA. Custom straps added by Mon Amie.

Manhattan Beach, CA, United States
After 2 years of dating, Brian proposed — it couldn’t have been more perfect. Finance by work day, and beach lovers every other moment, we knew from the start we would be married near the beach. Wanting the wedding of our dreams, and a little bit of glam, an upscale beach cottage theme was perfect! Tying into the cape cod style event venue, Hayley Paige’s Guindon dress was an immediate yes.

Natalie wore Hayley Paige style 6315, Guindon purchased at the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in West Hollywood, CA.

Brad is a professional wrestler and was scheduled to leave for 3 months to tour Japan. Two weeks before leaving, he proposed to me. Although, it was difficult to plan a wedding without him here, it also allowed me to keep my dress a bigger secret! I always knew I wanted a unique dress and when I found the Wisteria dress I knew I would be one of a kind…in order to match my one of a kind groom!

Mark and I met five years ago. We were set up on a date by mutual friends. We met…and that was it! We knew that we would get married one day! We got engaged in June of 2012 while vacationing in St. Lucia, and as soon as we got home, we started planning for our wedding day! We had our ceremony at Phipps Conservatory in the Outdoor Garden and had our reception at Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall at the Priory. We loved every minute!

Wedding Beneath Grand and Mystical Ancient Oaks in Central Texas.

Named Sacred Oaks to honor the space’s remarkable outdoor ceremony site, nature surrounded our family and friends as the sun was setting on Camp Lucy. The ancient oaks enveloped with thousands of perfect, tiny lights, created a truly magical spot for my husband and I to pledge our love for one another.

My husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in Kona Hawaii. We were so happy that so many of our family members decided to join us. It poured rain off and on all day but it made for some incredible photos. I wanted a timeless romantic dress for my wedding and it was love at first sight when I found my Tara Keely gown. I got countless compliments on my dress all night. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and I hope to share my dress with a future daughter some day.

Jennifer wore Tara Keely bridal gown style 2056 purchased from Janene’s Bridal in Alameda, California.

Nick and I were lucky enough to start our relationship as co-workers and instantly became best friends. He was the man of my dreams and the only person I could imagine spending the rest of my life with.
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Blending our Greek and Italian families and friends was so fun. It was a beautiful, sunny day filled with love, laughter, delicious food and lots of Greek dancing.
I fell in love with my Lazaro dress from the second I put it on. It was a stunning gown and my husband loved me in it!

Dan and I met over 7 years ago while he played football at Central Michigan University. We decided to go back to Mt. Pleasant Michigan to have our wedding because it’s my hometown but holds so many great memories for the both of us. We took pictures not only at the stadium but also at the restaurant where we met. I had so many people ask me where I got my dress because they absolutely loved it! I am ecstatic Dan and I have great memories and pictures of our wedding and would love to share them with others.

Denver, CO, United States
We knew one thing in planning our wedding – there was going to nothing rustic about it! Everything about our wedding would exude elegance. When I tried on my Lazaro gown, I knew I had found the perfect dress to set the stage for our day. After meeting Lazaro at his trunk show, he offered to lengthen the train of my gown, creating even more drama during our formal Catholic ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica. The night evolved into an amazing party of dancing and laughter. My favorite memory – nailing our choreographed first dance in the gown of my dreams!Style NZ3237, Noir by Lazaro- my bridesmaids wore this dress in a custom color – grape with black lace. It fit with my wedding vision perfectly!

Kelly wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3253 purchased from Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, Georgia. Kelly’s bridesmaids wore Noir by Lazaro gown style 3237.

Like most girls, since the age of 15 I began planning my dream wedding. Luckily I also met Chris at that age. Fast forward ten years later, and our wedding day was finally here. The Alvina Valenta gown was the second dress I tried on. I knew it was the one when I walked out of the dressing room and saw my mother crying. My goal was to make Chris and my guest gasp with a dramatic skirt, and this dress did exactly that.

Krisy wore Alvina Valenta bridal gown style 9307 purchased from Arzelle’s Bridal in Nashville, Tennessee.

I fell in love with Hayley Paige’s “Gianna” gown before even putting it on. I knew it would be the dress I would marry the love of my love in! Patrick and I were best friends and co-workers for 2 years. We lost touch for a while but eventually rekindled, and we have been head over heels in love ever since. Our wedding on October 19th was a dream come true, surrounded by the most loving family and friends. I felt like a rockstar in Hayley Paige HP6203!

Malibu, CA, United States
Inspired by the Spanish-style tile of The Adamson House and the stunning views of the Malibu coastline, I wanted a dress that was equally classic and romantic. Most of all, I wanted to take Bryan’s breath away the moment he saw me walking down the aisle. Mission accomplished! My Tara Keely made me feel innocent and sexy all at once. It was one of the many elements, aside from my handsome husband, that made it a fairytale day. “And they lived happily ever after…”

Jared and I met while I was walking my dog…Jared was literally the boy next door. I asked him to go with me on my walk, and we became inseparable ever since. We’ve been together for almost 6 years, and on October 26, 2013 made it official in front of 160 of our closest family and friends. I felt like an absolute princess in my Lazaro gown and Christian Louboutin shoes, and Jared looked like quite the stud in his Hugo Boss tux!

Years ago, my now husband crashed a ladies night. We laughed, danced, and had the most fun we have ever had! When the time came to walk down the aisle, my mom and sisters came with me to try on dresses. My mom immediately spotted “the dress”, it was an Alvina Valenta. It was the first dress I tried on. Not only did I fall in love with my dress, but I fell in love with the store. After my own wedding I started working at Che Bella and now I get to help brides find their dream dress!

Allie wore Alvina Valenta bridal gown style 9258 purchased from Che Bella in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Montreal, Canada
I’ve had a love affair with winter ever since I can remember; having grown up in Montreal. I married an American who was living in Arizona so my hopes of a winter wedding took some convincing. I kept envisioning the outdoor wedding pictures and how romantic it would be to be dressed in white lace standing outside on a snowy day.
My vision came true and the day was beyond perfect; it was whimsical and magical.

Tania wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3207.

After dating a decade, Elliot and I were married at St. Vincent DePaul Parish, the church of our alma mater. Our cocktail hour was at the Wit’s ROOF, showcasing unparalleled views of the city during the holidays. We were then transported to a winter wonderland in the Wit’s ballroom where crystals dripped and candles twinkled from manzanita trees, cobalt blue lighting warmed the room, pictures of Chicago landmarks adorned tables, and a lush cloud laced with crystals and candles hovered over the dance floor. It was truly our happiest day!
