Zach and Kacey

Kacey & Zach-99

Lake Chelan, WA, United States
Our love story began on an online dating site, bringing together a TV News anchor from WA and a USAF Captain from NC. A fairytale Epcot Paris proposal led to a dream vineyard wedding, close to my childhood home. I knew I had to say “I do” in a Lazaro and said “yes to the dress” at Bridals by Lori. A severe wildfire season threatened the nuptials, but the hazy skies provided an ethereal backdrop for the big day. From flying in 100 peonies, to the dream dress and amazing vendors it truly was happily ever after.

Kacey wore Lazaro style 3251 purchased from Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, GA.

Peter and Katie

Maryville , TN, United States
Peter and I met while we were working on a cruise ship. I was a dancer from England, he was an A cappella singer from the US. Three years after the ship I moved to America to start our new life together in Nashville, TN. Two years later, Pete proposed to me, surrounded by our families. The first thing I did was book an appointment at Marie Gabriel Couture as they had a Lazaro trunk show that weekend! The moment I saw this dress I knew it was the one. As I stepped into the dress, I fell in love.

Katie wore Lazaro style 3213 purchased from Marie Gabriel Couture in Indianapolis,IN.

Andrew and Amanda


Hamilton, Canada
My husband and I met on the football field at McMaster University, on the very first day of frosh week in 2006. We have spent nine incredible years together and finally tied the knot this past summer in Hamilton. From start to finish, our wedding day was truly magical; from seeing the emotions in my husband’s face as I walked down the aisle, to sharing our first kiss as husband and wife. We were so thrilled to share our special day surrounded by our loving family and friends.

Amanda wore Lazaro style 3410 purchased from L & J Bridal in Brampton, ON.

Brian and Ashleigh


Highlands Ranch, CO, United States
Guests could find details of Ashleigh and Brian in everything — from the rustic, outdoor setting with glamorous, vintage details. Ashleigh and Brian wanted their wedding to feel like a fancy family BBQ with great food and a great party…and that’s exactly what they got. But the moment that stood out to Ashleigh and Brian more than any other moment during the celebration was when they were able to see each other for the first time.

Joseph and Lindsey

Our wedding day was all we could ever imagine and MORE! A sunny October day, some amazing friends and family, a beautiful venue and a killer band really made our day and night one we will never forget. My dress was not only stunning, it was so comfortable I didn’t even want to take it off.

Daniel and Juliann

Jamesport, NY, United States
All week we were told that there was going to be a storm on our wedding day. We were getting married at Martha Clara Vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island outside in front of the Vines so naturally this made us a little nervous. The weather was beautiful and sunny in the morning. Come ceremony time the storm came in fast but literally split up right over the Vineyard. A few scattered rain drops and gray clouds in the background made for some gorgeous photos. I guess we already have all the luck we need.

Juliann wore Lazaro style 3063, purchased at Bridal Reflections in Carle Place, NY.

Nicholas and Samantha


Walt Disney World , FL, United States
My husband and I met when we were 14 years old. On the day we were married we had been together for 14 years. We both grew up in “Disney” families and shared a love for all things Disney. So you could say that getting married in Disney World was always part of the plan. It took over 2 years to plan our wedding and make sure that everyone we wanted to share it with could attend. With about 200 guest in attendance it was a once in a lifetime experience; one that our friends and family would cherish forever.

Samantha wore Lazaro style 3269 purchased from Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City.

Scott and Tami


Boston, MA, United States
Scott & Tami met freshman year of college but didn’t start dating until they both moved to Boston five years later. When Scott proposed on a pier overlooking the Boston skyline, they couldn’t imagine saying “I Do” anywhere else than in their favorite city! Scott & Tami were married at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston’s South End and held their reception at the Taj Boston hotel on a beautiful September day. Tami’s Lazaro dress was perfect for the city wedding she dreamed of and for dancing the night away!

Tami wore Lazaro style 3008 purchased from Cristina’s Bridal in Andover, MA.

Luke and Jessica


Palos Verdes Estates , CA, United States
Our Story best told at vimeo.com/129020861

We were married in the beautiful Neighborhood church of Palos Verdes Estates. The guests overlooked the bluffs into the water as they sat in the church. The party continued at Trump National Golf Club LA. Cocktail hour included taking photos in the photo booth, and getting portraits drawn by the character artists. The sun set in bright oranges as the guests peered into to never-ending ocean. The centerpieces were jaw dropping, the candy bar had everything you could imagine. We danced all night with our light up personalized glow sticks.

Geoff and Ashlee are a great couple because they are completely opposite, which their friends often make fun of them about.

Chris and Sarah

husband checking out the dress08/16/2014
Halfmon Bay, British Columbia, Canada
Our wedding paid tribute to our love of the outdoors, and adventure – our first date was rollerblading on the seawall in Vancouver and many sushi dates and oceanside runs later, Chris proposed on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa at sunrise.

We said our vows at sea level, against the stunning backdrop of the Sunshine Coast forest and Pacific Ocean. Our reception continued outdoors, with dinner and dancing under a clear top tent lit by chandeliers and draped lights.

My Lazaro dress fit the wedding perfectly – it was elegant, glamorous, and felt luxurious to wear.

Planning our big day of course started with the perfect dress. A destination wedding was our way to celebrate with everyone longer than one day. Love and laughter is how we live our life and in turn was what we wanted our wedding to represent with friends and family. The beach, loved ones and one heck of a party was an amazing way to start our life together.

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.
