Real Brides

Patrick and Annie

waterfall profile

San Pedro, Belize
Patrick and I met on April 11th, 1995. We spent the next twenty years building an amazing life together. Although we weren’t married, we were always fully committed to each other. We put our focus on building a life and a successful company together instead of a wedding.

We thought it would be a great celebration to make it official on our actual twenty year anniversary. Patrick surprised me by booking a wedding in Belize! We spent a week celebrating with twenty-seven of our closest friends. It was a magically wedding week full of abundant love and friendship.

Annie wore Hayley Paige style 6302, Leighton, purchased from Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Germond and Nikki


Pleasanton , CA, United States
My husband and I met in LA in April 2010. I lived in New York and he lived in San Francisco. We had a long distance relationship for 4 years, seeing each other at least once a month. Alternating, one month he came to NY, next month I would come to San Francisco. He proposed on our 3 year anniversary in Washington D.C. He is my best friend, my heart, my Gummybear. I knew for over 2 years this was my dress. I knew when I got married I’d be wearing a Lazaro. My dress was everything!

Nikki wore Lazaro style 3153 purchased at Bridal Galleria in San Francisco, CA.

Zack and Shelby


Dade City, FL, United States
My wedding was better than my dream. The weather was beautiful on the day I married the love of my life. My dress from Blush by Hayley Paige with some personal touches was the most perfect dress for the free-flowing boho/woodsy feel I wanted. And Ashley at The White Magnolia Tampa was the sweetest salesperson I’ve ever met. I ordered my gown after trying on a sample from a Blush trunk show at TWM, and the sample size actually fit me perfectly. That was easy! My dress and entire wedding day were a dream come true.

Shelby wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1407, Lotus (white custom bodice accents) purchased from The White Magnolia in Tampa, Florida.

Rob and Sarah

Jaco, CA, United States
Zephyr Palace is situated high atop a cliff with sweeping views of the ocean, lush jungle and mountains below.

I was the bride that literally tried on 100 dresses before I found “the one”. The moment I put on my AV gown I pictured myself waking down the isle and knew I had finally found it. One of the biggest highlights of the evening was that we surprised the entire wedding with a stupendous full firework show from the cliffs below! It was truly the best week of our lives and the wedding of our dreams.

Sarah wore Alvina Valenta style 9406 purchased from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in Los Angeles, California.

John and Nouchee

me and him09/20/2014
Charlotte, NC, United States
John and I grew up in the same town, but never actually spoke to each other. That was until April of 2002 when a mutual friend introduced me to him.

When we first started talking he was still healing from a heart break – making me feel like the “rebound girl”. On top of that my parents hated him! Needless to say, our relationship endured some hardships during the first few years. But after 13 years of fighting and making up, we are still very much in love with each other! (My parents love him now too!)

Nouchee wore Hayley Paige style Londyn-6358 purchased from White on Di in Daniel Island, SC.

Brody and Erin


Cold Lake , Canada
Although it was pouring buckets outside, I had calmness upon myself knowing that everything would unfold perfectly. We had a whimsical, soft and airy feel to the day. We exchanged vows overlooking the lake with all our family and friends present. There are no words for the amount of love we felt that day. Since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted a lace wedding dress. I was flipping through a bridal magazine one day and came across this stunning delicate gown. From that moment, it was love at first sight. I contacted the nearest retailer and tried on the dress and was overwhelmed with complete love and certainty. The eyelash lace, the illusion neckline, the low back and the top to bottom satin enrobed buttons, together, was absolutely perfect. I chose the dress in Rum Pink and paired it with custom pink jewellery and pink suede Jimmy Choo pumps.

Erin wore Alvina Valenta style 9258.

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.

Sarah wore Lazaro style 3312, purchased at Bisou Bridal in Vancouver.

Peter and Taylor

Taylor & Peter Wedding 429

Malibu, CA, United States
Peter and I have been together for 6 years and we got married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu on March 21 surrounded by our closest family and friends. The ceremony was something out of a fairytale, we got married under a gorgeous tree with hanging lights and chandeliers, Peter’s uncle performed the ceremony. We then headed to a tented reception area on the same property with a Ferris wheel. Peter’s brother David who is an amazing musician sang our first dance “Can’t help falling in love with you” while playing the ukulele.

Taylor wore Blush by Hayley Paige style 1409, Fiona.

Brian and Bridget

The Dress

Philadelphia, PA, United States
I saw my dress on the JLM website and called every store until I found it. Once I tried it on, I knew it was the perfect dress for me – the jeweled neckline, open back and fit and flare shape were everything I envisioned! The bridesmaid dresses were by Noir by Lazaro. I loved that the Alencon lace on their dresses matched my dress. The bridesmaids wore NZ3237 in graphite.

Bridget wore Jim Hjelm style 8350 purchased from LaBella Moda in Conshohocken, PA.

Steve and Shannon


Chicago, IL, United States
As the owner of a wedding planning company, I knew our wedding had to be nothing short of spectacular and was determined to plan something that no one had seen before. Hayley and I have a mutual friend who introduced me to Hayley and her stunning designs. After seeing Dori go down the runway I simply knew that this was the wow moment I was looking for. The alabaster color was something that I had never seen in the hundreds of weddings I have been a part of and it was an absolute show stopper at our chic rooftop wedding!

Shannon wore Hayley Paige style 6413, Dori, purchased from Bella Bianca Bridal Couture in Chicago, Illinois.

Corey and Stefanie


Andover, NJ, United States
Corey and I have been friends since kindergarten and knew as soon as we were engaged that we wanted our wedding to reflect our laid back, small town style. We were married at The Barn at Perona Farms, a location so perfect it felt like it was made for us!

I wanted a dress that would fit our fun personalities while still being timeless. While this dress was the last dress I tried on, I began to cry and immediately knew that this was that dress. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day!

Stefanie wore Tara Keely style 2358 purchased from Three Graces Bridal in Lebanon, NJ. Stafanie’s bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions style 5351 in champagne chantilly lace with cashmere chiffon and cashmere lining.

Patrick and Alessandra

Dover, FL, United States
Patrick and I met our freshman year of college in London, England. We were friends for many years, and on my birthday (almost a year ago!) he proposed! Our wedding was supposed to be small, my dress was supposed to be small, my bridal party was supposed to be small…but it was all big. We had a winter theme in sunny Florida, just a few days before Christmas. The day was wintry, rustic and most of all, magical. It was an honor to get to celebrate our love with all of the most important people in our lives.

Alessandra wore Jim Hjelm style 8364 purchased from Solutions Bridal in Orlando, FL.

Michael and Cecelia


Charleston, SC, United States
My husband and I spend our days on the water sharing our love of deep sea fishing. Once engaged, we knew there was no better place for us to exchange our vows than in my home state at the South Carolina Aquarium. We had a candlelit ceremony on the aquarium terrace with a backdrop of the beautiful Charleston Harbor and Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge. The reception was to follow in the main gallery of the SC Aquarium. The evening was filled with candles, champagne, and chandeliers- I never felt more glamorous thanks to my Hayley Paige Monroe gown!

Cecelia wore Hayley Paige style 6408, Monroe, purchased from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in Los Angeles, CA.

Nick and I are high school sweet hearts, dating for 8 years before tying the knot. We were married in New York City at St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church on a warm December day, with an amazing reception following at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park.

Andrew and Shea

Birmingham, AL, United States
While my husband is from Virginia and I’m from Philadelphia, he is currently stationed for the Army at Fort Rucker, AL and we wanted our wedding to have an elegant southern vibe to welcome our guests to Dixieland. Our ceremony took place on an outdoor terrace surrounded by fall-colored trees with breathtaking views overlooking the golf course at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham, Alabama. We went with a few different styles of dresses by Jim Hjelm Occasions, which undoubtedly stole the show when we were shopping for bridesmaid gowns!

Shea’s bridesmaids all wore Jim Hjelm Occasions styles purchased from Lady In Lace in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Addison, TX, United States
I fell in love with the Guindon gown when I started to Pinterest for wedding planning. I had always remembered that beautiful striped gown that was so unique and beautiful in the back of my mind. I didn’t even know who designed it till I searched for that striped gown online. Luckily there was ONE salon that carried it in my area. And after I put it on, the rest was history. It definitely was the most beautiful dress I have worn in my entire life. LOVE LOVE LOVE Hayley Paige and all her exquisite designs.

Mimi wore Hayley Paige style 6315, Guindon, purchased from Stardust Celebrations in Plano, TX.

Scott and Jessica


Cincinnati, OH, United States
Our theme of woodland elegance with pops of blues and greens came together perfectly. We started with the ceremony in the Orchard outside the Mansion. We had beautiful lanterns in the trees, shepherd hooks with rustic vases and large lanterns filled with flowers where we said ‘I Do’. One of my favorite things were the hand-crafted small tree centerpieces and the hand-cut tree stump that our tree-inspired cake sat atop. I loved our chocolate chip cookie and milk bar, too!

Jessica wore Tara Keely style 2200 purchased from Hyde Park Bridal in Cincinnati, OH.

Shannon and Maureen


Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Our wedding day was a beautiful example of our love for each other, shared with all our favorite people.
My stunning Tara Keely gown stole my heart at the very first glance. I was looking for something interesting and glamorous, and this dress hit all the right notes. The sheer illusion neckline and low back made me feel like a runway model. The lace appliqué was so delicate and pretty, and the slim fit hugged my body in all the right places. I have never felt so beautiful, and my husband agreed!

Maureen wore Tara Keely style 2350 purchased from With Love Bridal Boutique in Kanata, Ontario.

Des Moines, IA, United States
My husband and I met 9 years ago in Mexico while enjoying our “Senior Spring Breaks” in High School. After years of long distance we moved to the same state where we got engaged and married! Our fairy tale wedding took place downtown Des Moines, Iowa on State Capitol grounds in front of a BEAUTIFUL monument! The location is really not meant for weddings but I was determined! The skyline views were breathtaking. Our reception was held in a historic venue and our guests danced the night away with station style food, cocktails and a live band. It was perfect.

Emily wore Tara Keely style 2258 purchased at Schaffer’s in West Des Moines, IA.

Taylor and Heather



Huntington Beach, CA, United States
Although we both reside in Arizona we wanted a beach wedding and chose to have our wedding in Surf City USA-Huntington Beach, CA. We chose to have our ceremony on the beach in the late afternoon and our reception at the beautiful boutique hotel, Shorebreak Hotel right on Pacific Coast Highway. We danced the night away with our family and friends, ate to our hearts content, and enjoyed all the beauty and fun California had to offer!

Our day and my dress couldn’t have been better even in my dreams!

Wedding Lennard&Manuela-412

Maastricht, Netherlands
Our wedding was branded as the Bear & Fox wedding because we call each other so. We got married at Château de la Motte. I fell in love with my Hayley Paige dress online. I decided to order it at the JLM Couture Flagship Salon and went to pick it up one month before the wedding from West Hollywood and traveled with it back to Amsterdam. My Carrie dress was a dream come true! I had 11 bridesmaids, all of which wore long gowns of their choice, in nuances of pale pink. I love mismatched bridesmaids dresses. This way every girl can keep to the designs that they are most comfortable in.
