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. The weather was perfect on our May 3rd date and the guests enjoyed a perfect Southern evening, complete with mint juleps and dancing under the stars.

Shopping for my dress took time, but immediately when I saw the beaded intricate details of my Lazaro dress I just knew it was the one. It was the dress I had always imagined wearing walking down the aisle on my wedding day.
My husband and I were married in our home town in a vintage catholic church followed by celebrating the night away with family and friends at the Rialto Square Theater. it was more perfect than I ever dreamed it could be.

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.
St. Charles, MO, United States
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!

Nick and I were lucky enough to start our relationship as co-workers and instantly became best friends. He was the man of my dreams and the only person I could imagine spending the rest of my life with.
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Blending our Greek and Italian families and friends was so fun. It was a beautiful, sunny day filled with love, laughter, delicious food and lots of Greek dancing.
I fell in love with my Lazaro dress from the second I put it on. It was a stunning gown and my husband loved me in it!
Denver, CO, United States
We knew one thing in planning our wedding – there was going to nothing rustic about it! Everything about our wedding would exude elegance. When I tried on my Lazaro gown, I knew I had found the perfect dress to set the stage for our day. After meeting Lazaro at his trunk show, he offered to lengthen the train of my gown, creating even more drama during our formal Catholic ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica. The night evolved into an amazing party of dancing and laughter. My favorite memory – nailing our choreographed first dance in the gown of my dreams!Style NZ3237, Noir by Lazaro- my bridesmaids wore this dress in a custom color – grape with black lace. It fit with my wedding vision perfectly!
North Miami Beach, FL, United States
Jared and I met while I was walking my dog…Jared was literally the boy next door. I asked him to go with me on my walk, and we became inseparable ever since. We’ve been together for almost 6 years, and on October 26, 2013 made it official in front of 160 of our closest family and friends. I felt like an absolute princess in my Lazaro gown and Christian Louboutin shoes, and Jared looked like quite the stud in his Hugo Boss tux!
I’ve had a love affair with winter ever since I can remember; having grown up in Montreal. I married an American who was living in Arizona so my hopes of a winter wedding took some convincing. I kept envisioning the outdoor wedding pictures and how romantic it would be to be dressed in white lace standing outside on a snowy day.
My vision came true and the day was beyond perfect; it was whimsical and magical.

After dating a decade, Elliot and I were married at St. Vincent DePaul Parish, the church of our alma mater. Our cocktail hour was at the Wit’s ROOF, showcasing unparalleled views of the city during the holidays. We were then transported to a winter wonderland in the Wit’s ballroom where crystals dripped and candles twinkled from manzanita trees, cobalt blue lighting warmed the room, pictures of Chicago landmarks adorned tables, and a lush cloud laced with crystals and candles hovered over the dance floor. It was truly our happiest day!

Talley and I took our first trip away together Memorial Day Weekend of 2011 to The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. The resort was amazing and it kind of became “our place.” Exactly one year later, Talley surprised me with a trip back to that resort where he proposed on top of Camelback Mountain. So it was an easy decision where to have the wedding – The Phoenician Resort. We loved the desert luxury ambiance of the resort, and the cactus garden provided an unusual but beautiful backdrop for photography.
Ocho Rios, AL, Jamaica
We met 16 years ago as teenagers, growing up in Jamaica. We both left Jamaica to pursue a college education, he went to the UK and I to the US. Two years ago we were reconnected by the same friend who introduced us as teens. Immediately a romance blossomed and flourished in-spite of us still living in two different countries. It became immediately apparent that we were meant to be together as not even the Atlantic Ocean could keep us apart. Excitedly, we both returned home to Jamaica to tie the knot in front of family and friends. Sherane wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3259.
Cedar Rapids, IA, United States
We met in middle school and were married in the same church where my parents were married: First Presbyterian Church. The day was absolutely perfect, was celebrated with friends and family, and was filled with laughter and a whole lot of love. I knew I wanted to wear style 3108 when I saw it on TV before I was even engaged! When I put the dress on, I knew instantly this was it. I wore my dream dress on our wedding day, had the wedding of my dreams, and married the man of my dreams! What a perfect fairy tale!
Palm Beach, FL, United States
To get straight to the point, it was love at first sight. I was an ob nurse and he was the sexy, handsome doctor delivering the babies. We have been through thick and thin, blending two families and having a son of our own in April of 2011. We have been best friends for 15 years and run an ob/Gyn practice together. He the owner and I his dedicated side kick helping other families share the joy we have already found. Our wedding was a true fairy tale and my dress was AMAZING!

We married in the beautiful hill country at Rancho Mirando. Both from Mexican decent, we had a Latin themed wedding with blush & gold shades. Our ceremony was outdoors with music played by mariachis. Cocktail hour featured signature cocktails & a tapa bar. We met salsa dancing so we had one of our favorite Austin Latin bands Charanga Cakewalk play for our indoor reception & gave personalized maracas as favors. Our floral was a mix of succulents, peonies, and pink roses. We had a 4 tier lace tres leches cake with an assortment of Mexican pastries. It was a fairytale come to life!
Jasper, Alberta, Canada
Our dream wedding took place in the Rocky Mountains. We wanted to have a rustic woodland wedding while being fashionable at the same time! I loved that my dress wasn’t the typical white and that it had some beautiful bling on it. Our wedding ceremony was pure magic, and I couldn’t imagine a better day to marry my soulmate, surrounded by all of our family and friends.

My wedding dress was actually the very first dress I tried on! It had every element I wanted in a wedding dress…tulle, lace, buttons, and it fit our vintage/romantic setting perfectly! We wanted every detail in “Our Story” theme to be a reflection of how our love story unfolded! We had our first kiss under a tree with a chandelier hanging in it, so naturally our wedding reception would have chandeliers hanging in trees! I handmade everything…the bridesmaid jewelry, the boutineers, & the paper flowers in my bouquet It was truly the most magical night of our lives!
Asheville, NC, United States
Jeff and I were married on November 10, 2012 at the Inn on Biltmore Estate. The ceremony was held on the vista over looking the Blue Ridge Mountains and the reception was held in the Inn’s Vanderbilt ballroom.
Originally I was looking for a ball gown but fell in love with Lazaro 3050 from the moment I tried it on. The ruffle detail on the skirt added a romantic touch and the dramatic chapel train provided the elegant statement that fit in perfectly with the grandeur of the Biltmore Estate. It was the perfect dress for our big day!
New York, NY, United States
Our wedding was hosted on May 4, 2013 at the Yale Club in NYC. Bennett and I rented an old fashion checker cab to do our first look outside of the Yale Club and then took it for a ride down to Madison Square Park to Shake Shack (our favorite date spot). We then met back up with our bridal party at the Yale Club and took photos in Grand Central. Our ceremony was hosted in the library at The Yale Club and our reception in their Grand Ballroom.

Rodney and Ashley were married at the stargazing Westin Colonnade Coral Gables. However, the Rotunda ballroom had nothing on the bride’s wedding dress! Amelia at Bridal Reflections did an amazing job at alterations, the bride’s measurements were not an easy task! Family and Friends came from far to join these two in witnessing their blessed union. Everything came together PERFECTLY.

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!
