Blush by Hayley Paige

Matt and Alyssa

North Woodstock, NH, United States
We started dating in North Woodstock during Matt’s annual family vacation after a night out at the Woodstock Inn Brewery. Seven years later we were back in North Woodstock for Matt’s family vacation, and he proposed at our favorite spot on the river. When we began wedding planning we quickly realized we couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere other than where our story began. We exchanged vows at the base of Mount Moosilauke and held our reception at the Woodstock Inn Brewery. River was my dream dress, and the dress’ name confirmed we were meant to be.

Alyssa wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1450-River purchased from Bridal Garden in East Greenwich, RI.

Matthew and Samantha

Clearwater Beach, FL, United States
We started our wedding journey while I was finishing up my undergrad degree, 4 hours away from everyone. Needless to say it was a stressful few months of traveling. However it was all worth it. Our wedding day absolutely wonderful. We got married on the same beach Matt proposed, bringing our engagement full circle. We were so blessed to be surrounded by love and support from our many friends and family members.

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!

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.

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.

Britini and Brandon-Full Wedding-0310

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.

TJ and Amanda


Amelia Island, FL, United States

TJ and I met while working together one summer. I knew within the first couple months of dating TJ that I would marry him someday. Five years later he finally proposed!

We decided to get married at Walkers Landing, a beautiful venue overlooking the marsh in Amelia Island, Florida. We were blessed with perfect weather on our wedding day!

I was so excited for TJ to finally see my dress. My favorite part of the day was squeezing his hands while we exchanged vows. We had an amazing celebration and I will never forget how special I felt!

We had 30 guests attend our wedding, which was held at the fountain at the Now Larimar Resort. I guess you could say we hit a home run!

Travis and Ginny

Coronado, CA, United States
We always knew we would get married here. We chose to get married in the fall and stick to our California relaxed styles but keeping it classy and romantic. It was everything I ever imagined and the perfect fall day. We kept it traditional while making sure it was about us and our love. When I was in San Francisco visiting that spring we went to start looking for dresses. This dress was the third dress I tried on. It had the vintage feel that I imagined my dress would and was so comfortable to dance the night away in.

Ginny wore Blush style 1104.

Joey and Emily


Winter Park, FL, United States

We met in high school but did not date until after college. We remained friends and started officially dating after we rung in the NY on Beale Street in Memphis, TN.  We immediately became each other’s soulmates and knew we were determined to be together forever.  At the time, I was in Tallahassee finishing up my degree at Florida State University while Joey was living in Memphis starting his career.  We both then reached a new beginning in our careers and headed to Orlando, FL where we now call home. He proposed in the privacy of our own home during the Christmas holidays of 2011.  We married March 2013 at a historic home called Casa Feliz in Winter Park, FL and had the best day of our life!

Nathaniel and Amy

Audubon, PA, United States
We wanted our autumn wedding to be a rustic yet sophisticated one.

I wanted an antique-looking lace dress. My mom came for the weekend and after one exhausting day shopping, I almost gave up. The first dress I tried on the second day was “the one.” I got teary, and even my mom (who had been disagreeing with me) said it was perfect!

For the bridesmaids, I wanted muted colors to represent fall without being too Thanksgivingy. Because Nate and his groomsmen all hate wearing suits, I chose khakis- with a vest for him and suspenders for the guys.

Jason and Carolyn

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.

Nathan and I were married on the beautiful island of Ibiza, Spain. Nathan is from New Zealand, I am British and our wedding was a beautiful, romantic combination of British, Maori and Spanish traditions. Friends and family travelled from all over the world to share our special day and enjoy the sun, sea and sangria. I loved my dress! The colour, fit and beautiful lace made me feel like a million dollars.

Charl and Diana

Los Fresnos, TX, United States
We met while working aboard a cruise ship and it was pretty impossible to hide our chemistry. We traveled from the Caribbean through the Mediterranean across to the ancient orient. Charl from Zimbabwe, in Southern Africa and I from Texas, an ocean brought us together but also separated us for months at a time. We knew after two years together and sometimes apart we had met “the one.” We knew nothing mattered unless we were together. Our wedding day was a dream come true and with our closest friends and family we shared the most special day of our lives.

Kevin and Stephanie

Columbus, OH, United States
With it being my hometown and where Kevin and I started our story, we wouldn’t have held our vintage wedding anywhere else but Columbus. Our rainy, but-filled-with-good-luck wedding day started at my family’s church and ended with our reception in a historic bank built in the 1920’s. Our day, to us at least, was perfect. Our stained-glass-filled church, our antique reception venue, my timeless all-lace wedding dress and the abundance of love exuded that day from us and from our guests were all essential in creating our perfect memories.

Kiel and Cydney

Littleton, CO, United States
Our wedding day was such a beautiful day. We decided to get married in the fall…with the fear of snow…we actually lucked out on weather. It was a beautiful sunny day with lots of wind, which didn’t stop us from having an amazing time! Our guests and wedding party were all so much fun and I couldn’t ever imagine anything better than our wedding day. It was truly a heartfelt wedding with all of our sweat, tears and heart poured into it. It reflected who we were right down to the core.

Grant and Chloe

San Diego, CA, United States
Grant and I had been dating for five years when he proposed at Wine Glass Bay in Tazmania, Australia. The day was a dream, from the beautiful backyard, to the magnificent bouquets, everything was even better than I had imagined. The dress was by far the greatest detail. I tried it on once and knew it was the one. We altered the neckline to get the sweetheart look, but even without the alterations the dress was gorgeous. The crochet lace was simple, elegant, and unique, it was everything I ever wanted.

Paul and Christina

Chatham , MA, United States
After just a year of meeting Paul proposed in Central Park under a secluded tree filled with laughter. We planned an October wedding by our vacation home in Cape Cod. With a 4-month engagement, searching for a dress proved as challenging as finding the right man in Manhattan! My mother and I combed bridal boutiques with frustration. When I finally tried on this gown, I knew it was the perfect party dress. Everyone gushed that it was the most flattering style for me. It truly was the right fit, just like Paul and worth the wait.
