Chicago, IL, United States
Doug and I got engaged last May and began wedding planning pretty quickly. We decided on a winter wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Intercontinental Hotel Chicago, and I was dress shopping soon after. My Tara Keely 2200 was the third dress I tried, and I loved it from the second I put it on. On 2/16/13, we had over 200 loved ones from coast to coast celebrate with us and dance the night away. From the venue, to the flowers, to the band…we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding!

Boston, MA, United States
Anthony and I went on a blind date in the winter of 2010 and I never could have imagined how my life would instantly change from that day forward. Anthony was so genuine, sweet, honest, smart, and funny; I had never met anyone like him. Just a few days shy of our one year anniversary Anthony proposed with a stunning ring hidden in my Christmas stocking. We decided to have our wedding in Boston, the city we call home, and knew that the State Room would be the perfect place. On a beautiful, sunny, Sunday in January, Anthony and I exchanged vows in front of our closest family and friends AND in front of the most magnificent view in all of Boston. It was an unforgettable day, filled with lots of laughs, tears (happy, of course), smiles, and most importantly- lots of dancing!
Charleston, SC, United States
Jason and I got married at Lowndes Grove Plantation on 9.22.12. We incorprated both Southern Chic with modern New York designs to incorprate my southern upbringing with his New York lifestyle. Our wedding was focused on the details. Our custom “B” monogram and invitation design was transposed onto the cake, the dance floor, and even fabrics that lined the bars and tied the cocktail tables. FAVORITE MOMENT- we did a trash the dress photo shoot the morning after our big day

Peter and I have known each other our whole lives growing up in Duxbury, MA. We were married at Castle Hill in Newport,RI on a perfect summer day surrounded by all our family and close friends. It took me three dresses and three bridal shops to find the perfect dress. I knew I wanted lace, with straps and a fitted gown that hit me in all the right curvy places. It was an instant love affair and I never wanted to take it off. We will never forget that perfectly, magical day that ended firework show!

Everything came together PERFECTLY.

David and I met on a trip to Israel. From the very first day we met, it was obvious that we were going to share something special. Four years later, we were engaged and I was searching for THE dress. I knew this was the one when Francesca herself gave me some tips and helped me pick it out! My mother sewed an embellishment on the side and it was perfect.

Our wedding was a dream come true and so is my husband. Winslow and I met online. We were each other’s first date and we never looked back. We were married on a beach in Woods Hole where Winslow’s family made many childhood memories. We then drove in a antique Mercedes Gazelle kit car originally built by Winslow’s father, John, to our reception at the Bourne Farm, Falmouth, MA. Surrounded by our family and friends, we had the time or our life. The belt that was used on my dress was handmade by M&J Bridal in New York City. The veil was handmade by the bride’s mom.

Howell, NJ, United States
We were married on a warm summer afternoon in a Catholic Church surrounded by our loving family and friends. The theme of the wedding was ‘vintage glam’ and this was accented throughout the details and decor, from crystal earrings and bangles, pretty parasols, pink and off-white garden roses filled galvanized buckets to chandelier-like table centerpieces. Our reception was held at a Country Club, and while our guests enjoy the cocktail hour on a outdoor balcony overlooking the green, we enjoyed our alone time in the surrounding gardens. It truly was a dream come true.This was the fifth dress I tried on and I knew it was “the one”. I could just tell as soon as I stepped into it and I did not want to take it off! The crystal and bugle beaded bodice inspired me and became our theme throughout the wedding – as soon as I said “yes to the dress”! I selected the ivory silk ribbon and had my seamstress fold it over to make a thinner sash. I wanted to show off as much of the beautiful crystal bodice as I could! The sash definitely completed the look. My bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions dress style 5226. The luminescent chiffon really shimmered in the summer sun and my bridesmaids felt so comfortable in them. It was a win-win!
Bretton Woods, NH, United States
Kevin and I live in Boston, but we knew we wanted to get married in the mountains. As Kevin and I rounded the corner and saw the Mt Washington Hotel we knew nothing would ever surpass this place. With lots of family traveling from London, South Africa and Australia, it was important for us to have a place where our families wouldn’t get bored.
Our day was absolutely perfect. We had a beautiful, warm day, and the beautiful backdrop of the mountains. We were surrounded by everyone we loved, and we could not have asked for more.

Weaverville, NC, United States
Based on a love for the outdoors, our wedding was set in the rolling hills of the western North Carolina mountains. With family and friends gathered on a gorgeous Fall day, we allowed the farm property and natural backdrop to shine in their own right. Minimal touches of organic décor and warm lighting plus DIY accents, such as wrapped mason jars and vintage-inspired signage, rounded out our interpretation of rustic romance and down-home coziness.
Door County, WI, United States
We wanted a casual yet elegant wedding with strong hints of vintage. I knew I wanted a lace gown to achieve this look, and finally, after searching and searching, I found the one. This dress is gorgeous, with satin buttons trailing down the back and the perfect-length train. The deep ivory color was ideal for my pale complexion and red hair. And, the open back is an unexpected and fun accent.
Dowra/Donegal, AL, Ireland
On a beautiful sunny day in August in the North West of Ireland, myself & Johnny made our vows to become husband & wife in Doobally Chuch surrounded by all our family & friends. We then drove in a white vintage Beauford convertible to Co.Donegal where we had our reception in the beautiful Lough Eske Castle. I felt like a Princess all day in my Tara Keely ballgown. Our son Ryan had such a great day and even done a reading for us at the church asking God to bless his Mom & Dad. Everything was perfect just how i always imagined it.I wanted everything to be girly, princess and fairytale like.
Philadelphia, DC, United States
We met in Philadelphia through a mutual friend. Before our 2nd date, he broke his nose in a charity boxing match. He swept me off my feet (even though he was worried about his nose) and we fell in love. We married 2 1/2 years later in a beautiful ceremony in Philadelphia. I felt beautiful on my wedding day, not only because of the beautiful gown, but because of the way he looked at me. He is my soulmate and the love of my life and I fall more in love with him each day… crooked nose and all.
Leon, VA, United States
I married the love of my life in fall 2011 on lovely vineyard grounds at Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery in Virginia. Surrounded by 180 family and friends, Ryan and I had a beautiful celebration with a family-style dinner, wonderful wines and a rockin’ dance party. When Lazaro himself sketched my art deco dress as a keepsake for me, I knew it would be a focal point of the whole wedding experience. The design embodied my desired effect: a sophisticated vintage theme that seamlessly complemented my goal to incorporate natural elements in modern ways. Thank you Lazaro!
Orlando, FL, United States
Our wedding was everything we could have asked for and more. We wanted a classy, traditional wedding and that is exactly what we had. Our ceremony was at the beautiful Knowles Memorial Chapel at Rollins College (Jim’s alma mater) and our reception followed at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.
It was an absolutely perfect night and the best part was that we got to celebrate with all our family and friends.
Hoboken, NJ, United States
Our wedding took place at the historic St. Ann’s Church in Hoboken, NJ. This location represented both my Italian heritage and the years that Alex and I lived in Hoboken together. The reception was held at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, NJ. The ultra-modern decor of the Westmount fit perfectly with the upbeat vibe that we envisioned for our wedding. I have a very large Italian-American family and Alex has a very large Colombian family, so great food and music were priorities. By the end of the night all of our expectations had been surpassed.

Hryer & I had been dating for almost 2 years & I had just finished graduate school. After much planning on Hryer’s part, we took a trip to Venice, Italy where Hryer proposed to me on the terrace of our hotel. Our engagement set the tone for our trip & it was one of the best trips of my life.
My inspiration for the wedding was very much old Hollywood vintage vibes & the color scheme I wanted to keep was a very classic palette of whites, crèmes, matte gold’s, & browns.

A vintage inspired celebration with an art deco peacock design as the outlying theme. All of the peacock artwork was done by the mother of the bride and to continue on with the creativity and uniquness of the celebration, the rest of the wedding was also beautifully done DIY. These intimate photos were taken in Newport, RI.
Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Jeff and I were married at the Heinz Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. It is such a gorgeous and timeless venue, and I wanted my dress to be the same. When I tried on this Lazaro design, I knew I had found the perfect dress. Jeff had the biggest smile on his face when he first saw me, which set the tone for an amazing wedding day.
