Whimsical Wedding Dress For Kayla

An Engagement and Wedding Dress Story by Kayla K WHEN I GOT ENGAGED, IT WAS A MAGICAL MOMENT … My good friend Brittany had worked with my boyfriend Tyler on how he would propose to me and CATCH ME OFF GUARD. We had a few magazine shots for Cavender’s that was due that day, so we decided to shoot at NECHEZ RIVER RANCH, my favorite place! I needed someone to model boots for me and so I brought Tyler out to help. After all the magazine shots were done, Brittany yelled the “code word” and Tyler was behind me on one knee. When I turned around, he popped...

A Carol Hannah Collaboration Creates An Unforgettable Gown

A Wedding Dress Story By Hannah H I came across Carol Hannah’s two-piece Anthorium skirt set on Pinterest years before I had any intention of getting married but I saved it to my secret wedding board, just in case. When my (now) husband and I got engaged, we were living in New York City which conveniently is where Carol Hannah’s studio is. I reached out to schedule an appointment and told them what I was interested in. They sent back the preliminary pricing on the Anthorium skirt and my heart sank. I went into wedding planning with a modest dress budget and the Anthorium...

90’s Lazaro Couture Gown Sees More Happy Days!

Wedding Dress StoryBy Noreen P. I found my gown through a resale boutique in Philadelphia back in 1995. I had been shopping a bit by then but absolutely fell in love with this gown when I tried it on! It was a Lazaro dress that had only been worn once before. My mom and I were together, and we bought the dress on the spot; the memory of that day is really special to me. My husband and I were married on a crazy, beautiful day in May 1995. The ceremony was at my childhood church, and the reception was outdoors at Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia...

Rebecca’s Love at First Sight Wedding Gown

Wedding Dress StoryBy Rebecca K. “I purchased my dress from Vera’s Bridal in Madison WI. I was going wedding dress shopping for the first time with my mom and sisters. Unsure what type of dress I wanted, I saw this shopping trip as more of a trial run and had no intention of buying a dress that day. When my mom saw the dress on the mannequin at Vera’s, she insisted I try it on first. I admitted that it looked gorgeous on the mannequin but wasn’t sure how it would look on me. Turns out the dress fit beautifully and was so comfortable! Not...

A 50th Anniversary Wedding Dress Restoration

A Wedding Dress StoryBy: Cheryl F. “My wedding gown story began in May 1969 when I became engaged and started looking for a wedding gown for my November wedding.  I first went to a bridal shop above a jewelry store in Ontario, CA.  I tried on several gowns and found one I really liked but since it was a summer gown, it had to be ordered within a few days.  I couldn’t decide if it was the ‘one’ and wanted to look around at other shops. The deadline for ordering came and passed and I still had not found a wedding gown that I liked as well. At...
