Las Vegas, NV, United States
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! The Willow dress by Hayley Paige completed the look – it’s gorgeous layers and soft netting were exactly what we BOTH envisioned for me to walk down the aisle in.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
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. Four years later, while all alone on the beach at sunrise, he got down on one knee and made me the happiest girl in the world. We had an amazing destination wedding in Punta Cana. It was the wedding of our dreams and I got to wear my dream dress.

Mark & I met through mutual friends in the summer of 2006, and we didn’t start dating until around Christmas that year. 6 years later, he proposed on Christmas Eve. We spent a year and a half planning, and ended up having the perfect day for our wedding – the weather was beautiful and it was in the most magical place set on a lake. We spent the day surrounded by friends and family and we could not have asked for more!

We are high school sweethearts. Together for nine years, we decided to tie the knot on Steven’s family’s beautiful estate just outside of Vancouver, BC. Steven proposed on a large family shared vacation property 4 hours out of Vancouver on top of a mountain overlooking acres of lakes and forests. Our wedding was vintage/rustic themed detailed with family heirlooms. With 120 close family members in attendance, it was the perfect day.

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!

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!
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.

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.

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!
Palm Desert, CA, United States
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!
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.
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.

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!
Pittsburgh, PA, United States
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.

Kona, HI, United States
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.
