Nathan and Abigail

Asheville, NC, United States
Nathan and I met through a mutual friend in 2007. We were engaged in September 2009. We started as friends but frequent ski trips and social outings made us realize how much more we meant to each other! We were married in the Spring of 2010 and had a wonderful DIY style wedding in the mountains of Western North Carolina. It has been bliss ever since!

The soft ivory color, tier layers, and lace detail of this dress added the perfect amount of romance to our special day of love.

Kyle and Ellen


09/17/2011
Des Moines, IA, United States
In many ways, my dress embodied the overall feel Kyle and I wanted for our wedding: sophistication, romance, comfort. It was the first dress I tried, and I immediately loved its timeless-yet-vintage feel.

Moments before my father and I walked down the aisle, we both took an ill-fated step, and he accidentally ripped a 6-inch hole in my train. We both stared at each other, but what could we do? We laughed it off, and headed on down. After the ceremony, my coordinator sewed it, and it was no worse for wear.

Chehalis, WA, United States
Michael and I were high school sweethearts. After we graduated he went on to join the military to become a firefighter but we were determined to stay together and make our relationship a priority. He was stationed in Alaska when he proposed to me on top of a mountain at sunset, I was so excited! I went home to plan our wedding and we finally got married after being long distance for a year and a half.

The best day ever! 3 bridesmaids all wearing black but all different styles. The groom wore a bespoke tweed suit made in Edinburgh. We used our own campervan as the brides transport to the wedding and for the honeymoon afterwards.

Isaac and Nicole


10/09/2011
Rincon, Puerto Rico, United States
Isaac and I decided on a destination wedding in Rincon, a tiny town on the west coast of Puerto Rico. Surrounded by the lush landscaping of our villa, Caracol Che, we said, “I do”, and celebrated the night away with our closest family and friends. It was a day more perfect than I ever imagined. I loved my dress, the food, the location…everything!

A vintage dream wedding that we named “TRUE LOVE”… It took place in Oscarskyrkan, Stockholm and the reception was held the beautiful hotel Stallmastaregarden right by the water in central Stockholm.
My dress was the one and the only one I tried on, I knew right away it was the one. It had everything I was looking for and I am still in love with it….

Kenwood, CA, United States
Finding a wedding dress was so much harder that I had imagined it to be. I had tried on many dresses and was having a hard time finding the perfect one! I saw a Tara Keely dress in a magazine and just knew it was the one. Needing support my mom, step-mom, two sisters, auntie and niece and i all drove to Janene’s Bridal Boutique in Alameda. I tried on the dress and never looked back..

Aaron and MaCall

San Francisco, CA, United States
The dress I chose for my wedding day ended up being the first one I tried on- I fell in love instantly. I kept thinking that there was no way I could have found “THE” dress with the first one I tried on. Every dress I tried on after that just couldn’t compare with the way I felt and looked in that first dress. I felt beautiful, elegant, and comfortable all at the same time. I’m SO glad I chose the Tara Keely dress. I couldn’t imagine wearing any other dress on my wedding day.

John and Julia


05/29/2011
LOS GATOS, CA, United States
Our wedding was set in the Santa Cruz mountains, above the small beach town of Capitola. We knew from the outset that we wanted a rustic barn wedding with a romantic vintage tone and many personal details. Our goal was incorporate our family history while celebrating our style and our story as a couple. The Tara Keely wedding dress played into our wedding perfectly. It was romantic and sweet. It was elegant yet perfect with cowgirl boots. Truly the perfect day and weekend thanks to our friends, family and vendors for turning our dream and vision into a wonderful memory.

Ian and Jill


12/04/2010
Boulder City, NV, United States
Our wedding turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined, but the best parts were moments shared with family and friends. Like, chasing around my nephew in my dress before the ceremony, the boys showing up in fake mustaches, my brother-in-law playing the guitar as we walked down the aisle, my choreographed dance to “My Girl” with my dad, our first-dance, Ian shoving cake up my nose, and an impromptu rap performance by my brother-in-law and cousin. Those are the things that made our day absolutely perfect!

06/04/2011
Atlanta, GA, United States
Two strangers boarded a flight from AZ to GA. As they found their seats and prayed for a safe flight, little did they know God already planned something much greater. The two began talking and discovered they were from the same Georgia hometown. A few weeks later they went on a first date, quickly fell in love and committed to a Chicago/Atlanta long-distance relationship. A few years later, the boy proposed on a NC beach. The wedding ceremony took place at Peachtree Christian Church and the reception at Greystone in Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA.

Chris and Nicole


02/2010
Sarasota, FL, United States
Nicole (who wore a Tara Keely bridal gown – style 2917) and Christopher were married on a chilly February Sunday at the legendary Cà d’ Zan mansion (part of the Ringling Brothers museum) in Sarasota, FL. The mansion, known as “the last of the Gilded Age mansions”, reflects all the romance and decadence of Venetian Gothic architecture. “I loved how the look of our location made it seem like we were in some other country.”

Kenny and Julia


05/2009
Minneapolis, MN, United States

Kenny and I were married on a most beautiful Saturday in May 2009 at the historic Calhoun Beach Club in Minneapolis, MN. We wanted the day to really reflect us as a couple and incorporate what was most important to us.

Julia and Kenny wanted their wedding to reflect a “crisp, clean, modern glamour”… so the bride chose a Tara Keely gown - style 2853 - and a color palette of white, platinum, black, and hints of green throughout.
