Britini and Brandon-Full Wedding-0310

09/20/2014
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.

Britni wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1350- Willow, purchased from Garnish Boutique in Towson, MD.

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!

Amanda wore Blush style 1104  purchased from The White Magnolia in Jacksonville, FL.

Bobby and I met at an opening day tail gate party for the Cleveland Indians. We dated for four years before getting married at a destination wedding in Punta Cana in a tropical, Carribean paradise. 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!

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.

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!

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.

Keith and I met at a mutual friend’s BBQ in the Fall of 2008. He was only supposed to be stopping by to drop something off but when we started chatting he decided to stay all night.

We were married in my childhood church on June 16, 2012. Our reception was held at a family member’s venue, Saunders Farm. It was lovely and casual and we had a ton of fun.

10/13/2012
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.

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.

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.

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.

Trey and I were married in a beautiful church located just steps from our home in Richmond, Va. Every time I’d pass by the church I always dreamed of being married there.
On a sunny day in late September, two of my dreams came true.

Winter Park, FL, United States
It was a gorgeous day. Perfect Florida winter weather greeted our guests and we danced under a harvest moon sky and stars that stretched for miles. Daniel and I poured our heart and soul into the wedding. We wanted our footstep on the earth to be as carbon neutral as possible. We made most of our favors and what was purchased was made by others with their hands and hearts. It was a magical evening, and we loved every minute of it.

Matt and Marti


1/1/11
Atlanta, GA, United States
We were married at King Plow Arts Center on 1/1/11. We chose 1/1/11 as our wedding date because we couldn’t think of a better way to start the New Year – and let me say, it was even more amazing than we imagined. From our first look, to our first kiss, to our first dance….it was nothing short of surreal.
