Tara Keely

Tucker and Brooke


Gurley, AL, United States
We had our fairytale wedding at the beautiful Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation, just outside of Huntsville, Alabama where we both grew up. The beautiful mountains surrounding the area is what drew us to this venue, as we both love hiking. Every little detail was absolutely wonderful, making our special day absolute perfection! What a joy it was to finally become husband and wife!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Andrew and Evan


Boston, MA, United States

Our wedding day was the highlight of our lives. Andrew and I were married at St. Mary’s in Charlestown, and we held our reception at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

I wanted a classic wedding gown that was elegant and timeless for a church ceremony, harbor-chic for our reception, and also light and flexible so that I could move on the dance floor. Tara Keely style 2308 was the first dress I tried on at Madeleine’s Daughter. It was absolutely perfect, and it really was everything I was looking for in a wedding gown. I bought it that day!

Mike and Brydon

Southport, ME, United States
Mike proposed aboard my families boat, using code flags that spelled “Marry Me”. It only took me a few seconds to figure out what it said, at which point I started crying and was overwhelmed with joy. We decided to get married on the coast of Maine where I grew up, and where Mike spent summers. Our wedding day was perfect. The weather was beautiful and the setting was pristine. We were married on the waters edge, where a tented reception followed. Dancing started well before sunset, and continued through the night to the wee hours of the morning!

Joey and Susan


Libertyville, IL, United States
We were married on a beautiful day in June at a forest preserve in Libertyville, Illinois. It was so amazing getting to see everything come together after a year and a half of planning. One of the best moments of my day was after I was all done getting ready was the reaction on Joey’s face when I saw him for our first look before the ceremony. My dress fit in perfectly with the romantic and rustic vibe that the nature preserve gave. My bridesmaids wore a Jim Hjelm Occasions bridesmaids dress that tied everything together perfectly!

Susan wore Tara Keely style 2056 purchased from Volles Bridal Boutique in Lake Zurich, IL. Her bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions style 5357.

Derek and Brittany

Cincinnati, OH, United States
Derek and I were engaged July 13, 2012 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The location of the surprise engagement was more than fitting since we met 9 years earlier on freshman move-in day at Miami. After a long courtship we wed July 13, 2013 on the grounds of the beautiful Pincecroft Crosley Estate. It was the perfect mix of modern, timeless elegance. My Tara Keely dress and Alvina Valenta bridesmaids dresses were memorable additions to the overall look and style of our day.

Marcus and Jennifer


Kona, HI, United States
My husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in Kona Hawaii. We were so happy that so many of our family members decided to join us. It poured rain off and on all day but it made for some incredible photos. I wanted a timeless romantic dress for my wedding and it was love at first sight when I found my Tara Keely gown. I got countless compliments on my dress all night. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and I hope to share my dress with a future daughter some day.

Bryan and Tiffany



Malibu, CA, United States
Inspired by the Spanish-style tile of The Adamson House and the stunning views of the Malibu coastline, I wanted a dress that was equally classic and romantic. Most of all, I wanted to take Bryan’s breath away the moment he saw me walking down the aisle. Mission accomplished! My Tara Keely made me feel innocent and sexy all at once. It was one of the many elements, aside from my handsome husband, that made it a fairytale day. “And they lived happily ever after…”

Thomas and Jeannine


Philadelphia, PA, United States
Thomas and Jeannine were married in the city where they met: Philadelphia. They wanted the wedding to fully encompass everything they love about the city: history, stunning views, and fun! They choose Old St. Joseph’s Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Philadelphia, for the ceremony. The reception was held at Top of the Tower  with the most beautiful panoramic views of the Philadelphia skyline. Of course the day would not be complete without a stop at the Philadelphia Art Museum. It was a flawless day.

Terrence and Molly


Baltimore, MD, United States
I will always remember the first time I saw Terry. We were both attending law school at the University of Baltimore, and from the first time I saw him, I had an overwhelming feeling that he was someone who was going to be a big part of my life. We had an instant connection, quickly began dating and almost instantly fell in love. Our first date was at a wonderful tapas restaurant and three and a half years later, Terry proposed at the same restaurant. Terry is my best friend, my soul mate and the love of my life.

I spent months looking for the perfect dress, I wish I could wear it again ; it fit like a glove and I’ve never felt more beautiful in my life, Troy couldnt stop telling me how gorgeous I looked! Our wedding took place at the beautiful La Valencia Hotel. The theme was “key to my heart” with soft colors of mint, rose, silver and cream.

Amy & Mike under the umbrella

San Francisco, CA, United States
Our wedding was a beautiful and classic San Francisco day; full of fog! We would not have had it any other way in our city by the bay. We  were blessed to be surrounded by our family friends in our church ceremony at Saint Ignatius Catholic Church. We wanted our wedding to be timeless and simple and on my search for my dress those were the words I used. When I found my dress I knew instantly that it was the one for me. It made me feel beautiful and I was literally glowing.

Doug and Naomi

Naomi & Doug's first dance
Chicago, IL, United States
Doug and I got engaged last May and began wedding planning pretty quickly. We decided on a winter wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Intercontinental Hotel Chicago, and I was dress shopping soon after. My Tara Keely 2200 was the third dress I tried, and I loved it from the second I put it on. On 2/16/13, we had over 200 loved ones from coast to coast celebrate with us and dance the night away. From the venue, to the flowers, to the band…we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding!

We then drove in a white vintage Beauford convertible to Co.Donegal where we had our reception in the beautiful Lough Eske Castle. I felt like a Princess all day in my Tara Keely ballgown. Our son Ryan had such a great day and even done a reading for us at the church asking God to bless his Mom & Dad. Everything was perfect just how i always imagined it.I wanted everything to be girly, princess and fairytale like.

Joshua and Sayoko

Cherry Valley, CA, United States
I knew I wanted our wedding to be unique to us, and when we first visited Highland Springs Resort I knew it was perfect. I wanted the rustic outdoors to be intertwined with a vintage feel, and as for my dress, I wanted romantic and lace. From the first time I put on the Tara Keely dress, it was like everyone says, I knew it was the one! It was perfect and I felt beautiful. Joshua and I were married on June 8th, 2012 and it was absolutely perfect for us and our intimate group of family and friends.
