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.

Kelly wore Hayley Paige style 6315-Guindon purchased from Bella Bianca in Chicago, IL.

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!

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!!

Kimberly wore Hayley Paige style 6350-Carrie purchased from Kleinfeld in New York, NY.

Lahaina, HI, United States
My husband and I met at the University of Iowa our Freshman year, and dated all throughout college. We were together 4.5 years when he proposed on Valentine’s Day, 2014. We decided on a small destination wedding on Maui, Hawaii on April 24, 2015. Our wonderful parents, grandparents, siblings and my best friend came to Maui to celebrate with us. We got married at a restaurant in Lahaina, HI called Merriman’s overlooking the ocean and beach. Our wedding day was more perfect than I ever imagined, and I felt amazing in my beautiful Hayley Paige wedding gown!

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.

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.

Annie wore Hayley Paige style 6302, Leighton, purchased from Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Charlotte, NC, United States
John and I grew up in the same town, but never actually spoke to each other. That was until April of 2002 when a mutual friend introduced me to him.

When we first started talking he was still healing from a heart break – making me feel like the “rebound girl”. On top of that my parents hated him! Needless to say, our relationship endured some hardships during the first few years. But after 13 years of fighting and making up, we are still very much in love with each other! (My parents love him now too!)

Nouchee wore Hayley Paige style Londyn-6358 purchased from White on Di in Daniel Island, SC.

As the owner of a wedding planning company, I knew our wedding had to be nothing short of spectacular and was determined to plan something that no one had seen before. Hayley and I have a mutual friend who introduced me to Hayley and her stunning designs. After seeing Dori go down the runway I simply knew that this was the wow moment I was looking for. The alabaster color was something that I had never seen in the hundreds of weddings I have been a part of and it was an absolute show stopper at our chic rooftop wedding!

Shannon wore Hayley Paige style 6413, Dori, purchased from Bella Bianca Bridal Couture in Chicago, Illinois.

My husband and I spend our days on the water sharing our love of deep sea fishing. Once engaged, we knew there was no better place for us to exchange our vows than in my home state at the South Carolina Aquarium. We had a candlelit ceremony on the aquarium terrace with a backdrop of the beautiful Charleston Harbor and Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge. The reception was to follow in the main gallery of the SC Aquarium. The evening was filled with candles, champagne, and chandeliers- I never felt more glamorous thanks to my Hayley Paige Monroe gown!

I fell in love with the Guindon gown when I started to Pinterest for wedding planning. I had always remembered that beautiful striped gown that was so unique and beautiful in the back of my mind. I didn’t even know who designed it till I searched for that striped gown online. Luckily there was ONE salon that carried it in my area. And after I put it on, the rest was history. It definitely was the most beautiful dress I have worn in my entire life. LOVE LOVE LOVE Hayley Paige and all her exquisite designs.

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.

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.

Alex proposed using a SkyMall magazine on a flight to Miami for vacation. As were were flipping through I came across the self-designed “ad” he so thoughtfully crafted.

We were married on August 30th in Cleveland, Oh. The ceremony was held at the Amasa Stone Chapel, followed by the reception at Windows on the River in Downtown Cleveland.

Hayley’s designs are works of art, I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life.

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!

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!
