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!

Montreal, Canada
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.

Chicago, IL, United States
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.

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!

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!

Fischer, TX, United States
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!

Happy couple

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!

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.

Coral Gables, FL, United States
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.

Howell, NJ, United States
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!

Kerribeth wore Lazaro bridal gown style 3063 , her bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions bridesmaids dress style 5226 in ballet luminescent chiffon, purchased from Kleinfeld Bridal in New York, NY.

Leon, VA, United States
I married the love of my life in fall 2011 on lovely vineyard grounds at Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery in Virginia. Surrounded by 180 family and friends, Ryan and I had a beautiful celebration with a family-style dinner, wonderful wines and a rockin’ dance party. When Lazaro himself sketched my art deco dress as a keepsake for me, I knew it would be a focal point of the whole wedding experience. The design embodied my desired effect: a sophisticated vintage theme that seamlessly complemented my goal to incorporate natural elements in modern ways. Thank you Lazaro!

Our wedding was everything we could have asked for and more. We wanted a classy, traditional wedding and that is exactly what we had. Our ceremony was at the beautiful Knowles Memorial Chapel at Rollins College (Jim’s alma mater) and our reception followed at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.

It was an absolutely perfect night and the best part was that we got to celebrate with all our family and friends.

Michael and I married at Filerimos Monastery in Rhodes Ishland. It was constructed of stone on the side of an older Byzantine Monastery.

We were married at a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Roger Williams Botanical Center in Providence, RI. It was an intimate wedding with 65 of our closest friends and family. A vintage inspired celebration with an art deco peacock design as the outlying theme. All of the peacock artwork was done by the mother of the bride and to continue on with the creativity and uniquness of the celebration, the rest of the wedding was also beautifully done DIY. These intimate photos were taken in Newport, RI.

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.

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 & 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.

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 & I met in August 2008 at church. Little did I know that Ron’s Uncle David invited him to church to play match maker.

We married on June 9,2012 at Villa Antonia in Austin, TX. It was a dream come true!
