Jeff and Christina


08/31/2012
Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Jeff and I were married at the Heinz Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. It is such a gorgeous and timeless venue, and I wanted my dress to be the same. When I tried on this Lazaro design, I knew I had found the perfect dress. Jeff had the biggest smile on his face when he first saw me, which set the tone for an amazing wedding day.

William and Amy


11/10/2012
Pittsburgh, PA, United States
The look chosen for the wedding was classic and timeless. On a beautiful November day, the ceremony was held at Heinz Memorial Chapel on the University of Pittsburgh campus. The reception took place at the Grand Concourse restaurant located in the beautifully restored Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Station – a Pittsburgh historic landmark. We chose to do a ‘first look’ before the ceremony and it was very special and emotional. Special key items of the day were that Will wore his grandfather’s pocket watch, and Amy handmade a brooch bouquet made from her grandmother’s and mother’s jewelry.

Mark and Angela


10/07/2011
St. Helena, CA, United States
Mark & Angela met at work during an undercover operation (they are both Deputy Sheriff’s). They shared a love of law enforcement, Disneyland, & wine tasting. Four years later, Mark proposed with a “little blue Tiffanys box” in Disneyland at the castle at Christmastime. Angela immediately went to meet Lazaro in S.F to choose her dream gown! Angela & Mark were later married at their favorite Napa Valley Winery: V. Sattui. Mark is a US Marine Corp Officer, so their ceremony was a traditional USMC Ceremony in the courtyard of the winery. The reception was held in the barrel cellar.

Timothy and Sengngeune


05/05/2012
Memphis, TN, United States
Tim and I were married at the Memphis Botanic Garden, which holds a special place in our hearts. It was where I first met his parents and also where as a child my father who’s no longer with us took me.
I knew this Lazaro was the ONE, not only because I’ve always dreamt of being a Lazaro bride, but when after a long morning of trying on multiple dresses, I came out and my Mom first words to me were,”It’s Perfect!” We all know Mom knows best.

Ron and Chericka


06/09/2012
Austin, TX, United States
Ron & I met in August 2008 at church. Little did I know that Ron’s Uncle David invited him to church to play match maker. All I remember is being embarrassed when Uncle David told Ron, “Get the digits.” Ron & I love traveling together. He proposed to me on the beach in Okinawa, Japan. We married on June 9,2012 at Villa Antonia in Austin, TX. It was a dream come true!

North Bergen, NJ, United States
I’ve always wanted a New York City wedding, since I grew up in the area. And with Michael and his whole family being from the South, it worked out well to have a “destination wedding” right at home! Michael and I were married right on the edge of the Hudson River, with the New York City skyline as our backdrop. It was a hot day, but the guests were in love with the view! They were also in LOVE with my Lazaro gown, which couldn’t have been more perfect for the occasion!!

Matt and Ashley


10/05/2012
Philadelphia, PA, United States
After six and a half years of dating, Matt and I were married at the renowned Cescaphe Ballroom in the historical city of Philadelphia. He got his first glimpse of me in this stunning dress on a rooftop overlooking the Benjamin Franklin bridge. It was the beginning of our magical wedding day. After I saw this Lazaro gown a runway video, I knew that it had to be mine–just like Matt. Lucky me, I got both!

Lombard, IL, United States
Joe and I met in college and after 7 years of dating, Joe proposed when we got home from our first vacation together in Punta Cana. Working at Bella Bianca Bridal you can bet I couldn’t wait to start trying on dresses. I was so lucky to have that magical dress moment with my mom, sister, co-workers, and Lazaro himself! I will never forget it. Our joyous and fun wedding was on beautiful summer day and was the best day of our lives. Marrying the love of my life in my gorgeous dress was a dream come true!

Tan and Nicole


09/22/2012
Las Vegas, NV, United States
We always knew that we wanted to be married in Las Vegas as it was one of our favorite places to be. Although not far, it was considered a “destination” wedding. It was small but perfect at the Four Seasons Hotel. The guests were all in awe of the beautiful dress and loved every bit of the wedding from the ceremony to the reception! I wouldn’t change a single thing from that day, it was perfect.

John and Sylvia


08/31/2012
Lindos, Rhodes, Greece
After a long road our dream became a reality on August 31, 2012 and we celebrated our love on the island of Rhodes in Greece. Married at St. Paul’s Church in St. Paul’s Bay in the village of Lindos, my custom altered Lazaro gown couldn’t have been more perfect. I’d wear that dress every day if I could…my husband cried when he saw it. The amazing team at Mariella Creations assisted in adjusting my dress to match my unique vision. The art deco style dress was gorgeous to begin with, and the modifications made it even more spectacular, quite fitting for the beautiful location.

Sylvia wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3059 , purchased from Mariella Creations in Rocky Hill, CT with specialized customizations.

Israel & I have known each other ever since high school. It wasn’t until senior year that we started dating and the rest is history!

Jen and Mike were married on the beach in South Nags Head, NC with the reception in Manteo, NC. Even though they reside near Pittsburgh, PA, they chose the Outer Banks after several trips there with Jen’s family; the beauty of the natural beaches provided the perfect backdrop for an amazing day! Jen knew right away that she wanted a Lazaro gown, and it couldn’t have looked more beautiful paired with the raspberry Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dresses.

Matthew and Janica


03/10/2012
Guam, United States
Matt and I met in fabulous Las Vegas. When we decided to get married, Matt’s family’s in Guam and mine in Hong Kong, so we decided to do TWO ceremonies. I looked ALL OVER and thought I might have to have 2 to match with the gorgeous but contrasting settings that Guam’s sunny beaches and HK’s sprawling city-life have to offer. Everything I tried on didn’t feel like “the one” until I noticed the Lazaro 3050. My husband’s jaw dropped seeing me in it. Our ceremonies turned out absolutely beautiful!

Janica wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3050, purchased from The Bridal Collection , in Denver, CO.

Atlanta, GA, United States
I loved this dress from the moment I saw it in The Knot magazine and put it in my wedding planning book as inspiration. After visiting 2 shops and trying lots of dresses, I wasn’t expecting much from my last appointment of the day. As we walked into the salon to meet our consultant, the dress was on a bustform right in front of us! My mother and godmother insisted I try it on. I knew then that my search was over. It was the only dress I tried on at Bridals by Lori and the most perfect one!

Nathan and Kristin


05/19/2012
Las Vegas, NE, United States
Our wedding was small & perfect! We had our closest friends and immediate family there to celebrate with us! The ceremony was full of laughs- Nathan likes to tell people we met by me falling off the treadmill and he caught me. This seemed to be the theme in our ceremony. To my surprise, the man who married us included my 11 year old son in the vows. It was very sweet and heart felt. It was wonderful! I wouldn’t change any of it!

Palm Beach Gardens, FL, United States
While planning our wedding at the Country Club at Mirasol, I knew I needed a dress that was glamorous and romantic, but also “me”. The minute I tried on this Lazaro gown, I knew it was the one. From the textured organza skirt to the bead encrusted bodice, it had everything I wanted in a wedding dress.

We had a sunset ceremony on a breezy day in November. Just before I walked down the aisle, it began to pour! Luckily, the rain passed and I made my way down the aisle in my gorgeous Lazaro gown. It was perfection!

Michael and Taylor

06/16/2012
Fort Worth, TX, United States
Our sales associate at Stardust Celebrations, Liz, coordinated an incredible experience for me to meet Lazaro Perez at my initial dress fitting. Liz and my sneaky matron of honor also adorned me with a one-of-a-kind sketch of my dress, signed by Mr. Perez, which they revealed to me on the big day. My dress simply stole the show. A flawless balance of a fashion-forward edge, mixed with swoon-worthy elegance. The look on my handsome man’s face when he finally caught his first glimpse of me in my gown is my most precious memory.

Charlotte, NC, United States
Our wedding inspiration all started the night Taylor proposed to me. He took me to a quaint, local bed and breakfast and standing right in front of this arbor in the back yard he dropped to one knee and 9 months later we stood in that exact spot to become man and wife. I knew finding the perfect dress was going to be a lot of work but an amazing adventure. I saw the most fabulous Lazaro gown online and right then i called my mom and told her I had found “the dress”.

Crestwood, NY, United States
Eric and I wanted a unique wedding that our guests would enjoy and feel welcomed and special. Our venue was a historic tobacco mill in the heart of the New York Botanical Garden. There was no other dress in creation that could match our unique venue other than my fairy tale Lazaro gown. It was one of the highlights of the wedding!

Orlando, FL, United States
Justin and I both have a love for vintage things. First task was to find my dress. Actually my mom did. It was perfect for what I was going for a beaded sheath dress by Lazaro it was simple yet had a 30′s vintage feel to it. I realized I made the right choice once people at the wedding started asking me if I had used my grandma’s dress for the event.

Jeff and Heather


04/08/2012
Austin, TX, United States
We wanted a Victorian wedding with romantic details, like silver platters, lace, soft colors, crystal jewels and black suits. We love the late 1800′s time period. We kept this in mind when creating the look of our wedding with every detail, from decor to clothing. We incorporated old world techniques like hand-painted sign-in scrolls and seating charts done with feather pens and calligraphy. We wanted people to be swept away into another time when they walked into our wedding and the feeling to be ornate but not stuffy; just cozy and romantic, and encourage everyone to have a good time!

Phillip and Nicole


Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, United States
Our wedding was on St. Patrick’s Day and was everything we hoped for and more. We wanted a garden inspired, vintage style wedding and everything including my dress made that dream come true.
This was the first dress I ripped out of a magazine and once I tried it on I knew it was the one!! It was so comfortable (seriously) and so many of my friends asked me if they could borrow it for their weddings! I added a crystal belt that my twin sister wore at her wedding rather than the platinum sash it came with.

Poughkeepsie, NY, United States
We never imagined that when we got married in upstate NY we would have to contend with a hurricane. Enter Hurricane Irene on August 27, 2011. The rain slowed to a drizzle just long enough for us to get some pictures outside on the beautiful golf course. I suppose if rain on your wedding day means luck, well then we won the lottery! My dress weathered the storm beautifully. I ended up choosing Lazaro style 3052, but the decision wasn’t easy as I was torn between several gorgeous Lazaro styles!
