#dgbride: Julia

June 13, 2021

Are y’all ready to lose it over our next #dgbride? Introducing Julia, who married her gorgeous soulmate in an intimate September ceremony. These photos are courtesy of husband + wife duo Tim and Lizzie from Tim Davis Photography, one of the most renowned photographers in the business. If you want truly classic wedding photos, Tim and Lizzie should be your first phone call! Now, get ready to swoon over Julia’s gorgeous gown and dreamy wedding day!

Julia chose an absolutely stunning fitted Essense of Australia gown, complete with long illusion sleeves, keyhole illusion back, and dramatic train. We love the soft floral lace appliques throughout that are accented with sequins, allowing Julia to shimmer with every step! Her illusion neckline showcased her collarbones while still supporting her throughout the day. We also love that she chose to order the dress in all ivory – a perfect compliment to her skin!

Julia also rocked the matching cathedral length veil for her dress! Essense of Australia had a matching lace veil to perfectly compliment her dress and we’re totally biased, but we love the drama! Her glam wedding day look was truly chic and classic, so why not have a veil to match?! We love that she kept the overall look timeless by choosing a black tux in sultry velvet! Their whole day was the best balance of sexy, yet sophisticated and we are so in love.

Thank you so much, Julia, for choosing Dress Gallery as your boutique. We loved styling you and getting to know you. Your wedding was truly one of our most memorable and we are so thankful we get to claim you as our bride. You looked truly stunning in your Essense of Australia gown. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!

 

 

 

NEW VENUE ALERT: The Vail in Downtown Wichita!

June 10, 2021

HEY GUYS! We absolutely love it when new wedding vendors come into town. It allows for creatives to get inspired within a new space and begin envisioning what potential weddings will look like there. We were so thrilled when Emmy Liz Events asked us to be apart of the first styled shoot at The Vail, a renovated wedding venue across from Hotel Oldtown in downtown Wichita. This luxurious space is accented with classic colors, timeless decor, and enough of a blank canvas for you to totally make it your own.

Our girl Shelby Laine was the photographer on hand for this shoot, so you KNOW it was good! The list of incredible vendors that pulled off this incredible shoot is listed below, but in the meantime….get ready to fall in love with The Vail!

We love the copper and champagne colors Endless Treasures chose for the decor pieces in this shoot, especially combined with the edgy and modern cake courtesy of Stand Tall Bakery! This entire are feels bright, light, and moody – a literal opposites attract! We paired the shoot with one of our gorgeous Essense of Australia ball gowns, featuring a moscato undertone, criss-cross back detail, and the dreamiest skirt imaginable.

Can we talk about all that texture?!?! From the sequined skirt of the gown to the wild floral bouquet to the shaggy fur pillows….this crew sure knows how to stage scene! We love how luxurious the dress flows over the vintage couch paired with cool rug details for color and patterns. We might be biased, but we love that they kept her hairpieces a focal point of the beautiful updo! This is perfect inspiration for brides who want to ditch the veil, but still keep their look classy and bridal.

We LOVE a good Edison bulb moment – they give moody, contrasting light to all photos while also giving a warm glow, totally illuminating you in gorgeous light for bridal photos. Combine the look with lighted candles (faux or real!) and you have a cozy, intimate scene perfect for portraits. We love how Revel Gardens kept the florals dried and dusty, the perfect accent for this bohemian dream of a styled shoot.

What was your favorite part of this shoot?! Check out all the vendors’ work for even more images, videos, and behind-the-scenes of this awesome styled shoot. And if you’re looking for a wedding venue, make sure to put The Vail on the top of your list!

#dgbride: Samantha

June 8, 2021

Rise and shine, DG family! Time to show off one of our gorgeous #dgbrides, Samantha! She married her soulmate, Blake, in March 2020 during the most magical springtime ceremony. We can’t wait to show Samantha off using her photos from Alexandra Burt Photography, who is seriously one of the sweetest photographers around. Alex reaches out to vendors to share her galleries after weddings so we can show off our work and we are so thankful for kindness and conscientiousness. And now onward to Samantha and Blake!

Can you feel the love and laughter radiating from this couple?! We absolutely love how full of life all of their photos look! These gorgeous golden hour shots perfectly capture the Kansas springtime and we love how bright and airy their entire day was. Samantha decided to do blue nails and blue pops of florals for her “something blue,” which is a simple and cute way to bring in those traditions!

Samantha chose a stunning crepe Stella York gown featuring a plunging illusion neckline, key hole back, scattered lace throughout the bodice and train, and just a tiiiiiny bit of sparkle to let her shimmer on her wedding day. Her train is accented with fabric buttons throughout and we love how her illusion is sexy yet totally modest. She was free to dance and hug loved ones all night –  her dress features stretch fabric so she could spend the entire night on the dance floor!

Congratulations to the McBratneys! Thank you so much, Samantha, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. You were truly a vision in your wedding gown and we are so thankful you are a DG bride! We wish you and Blake a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to you both!

#dgbride: Erin

June 5, 2021

HOLD UP, FAM. These next pictures are spice level 100000 and we wanna give you warning about how hot our next #dgbride, Erin is! She married her husband, Brandon, during an absolutely airy + gorgeous ceremony in April 2021. Their day was full of light, love, and laughter – perfectly captured by their photographer, Lyndi Mishe, who has been totally killing all of her wedding galleries lately. You are going to want to 1. Become Erin’s BFF and 2. Book Lyndi for your wedding as soon as you see these photos!

RIGHT??? WE WEREN’T KIDDIN. Everything from Erin’s dramatic fit-and-flare Morilee gown to her gorgeously extended nails to her whimsical hair piece was absolutely stunning. Her wedding look was classically gorgeous, with her hair and makeup giving us some serious Marilyn Monroe vibes. Brandon’s classic look was a great compliment to her ivory gown, completed with a perfect belt to highlight Erin’s waist. WE TOLD YOU IT WAS SPICY!

We can’t take credit for Brandon’s look, but Erin will go down as one of our favorites forever in her Morilee gown. Her gorgeous train was a perfect dramatic entrance and made for beautiful photos. We love her strapless look for early spring, allowing her to hug loved ones and dance comfortably all night with no issues. Her linear lace accents highlighted her silhouette and we love that she accented her waistline with a dainty bridal belt!

Congratulations to the Browns! Erin, we are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique and you trusted us with your wedding vision.  You were truly a dream on your wedding day and we can’t wait to show you off for years to come. We wish you and Brandon a lifetime of love and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have after seeing your celebratory day. Congrats to you!

#dgcouple: Hunter & RJ

June 2, 2021

Hello, lovelies! Introducing one of our newest #dgcouples, Hunter & RJ! They were married in a gorgeous ceremony at Stone Hill Barn in March 2021. We were so lucky to be able to style not only the bride and groom, but their group, too! Tim and Lizzie Davis of Tim Davis Photography took their beautifully classic and airy photos; they are truly one of the best couples in the game!

Hunter chose one of our absolute favorite dresses of all time – a high neck, high back, beaded illusion STUNNER that perfectly showcased her silhouette. Her illusion back dress featured fabric buttons all the way through the back and down the train! Add in her gorgeous extended train and you have a dramatic dress perfect for their venue. We love how Hunter styled her look with moody pops of bordeaux amongst her ivory and green accents. Hunter truly pulled off the ultimate sexy-yet-timeless vibe!

We also LOVED how timeless yet cool RJ kept his look for him and his groomsmen. We love that they paired their grey suits with boots, complimenting the slightly Western vibe of their wedding. His grey-on-grey look, accented with different hues, creates a lot of cool visual dimension in their photos while also letting RJ be the star of the show! His groomsmen complimented him with lighter grey suits and burgundy accents, matching the bridesmaids dresses but looking sharp standing next to the groom!

We love Hunter’s bordeaux girl group! She let her bridesmaids choose styles comfortable for them while keeping the look uniform and sleek with matching colors. Against her ultra ivory again, we love the color pop, especially with the gorgeous eucalyptus in their bouquets! Classy and chic.

How cute is Hunter’s custom bridal jacket?! We absolutely love personalized accessories for your wedding day and any opportunity to showcase your new last name is fine by us. We have a great network of local artisans we can recommend for all your bespoke wedding day needs; whether you want a custom veil, a personalized jacket, bespoke earrings in your wedding colors, or more – we’ve got you! Talk to your consultant about what your wedding vision looks like and we’ll do everything we can to help you create it, including connecting you with other professionals to make your look perfect! Because let’s be honest….don’t we all wanna look as cute as Hunter on our wedding day?!

Cheers to the Gaines’! Thank you so much, Hunter & RJ, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We are so lucky to count you both as a #dgcouple and are extra thankful trusted us to style you for your special day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter! Congratulations to you both!

NEW DESIGNER ALERT: Madi Lane Bridal

May 31, 2021

Guys! We have been anxiously awaiting to make this announcement….but our designer line is growing! Dress Gallery is officially a member of the Madi Lane family and we COULD NOT be more excited!

#dgbride: Callie

May 28, 2021

We cannot wait to introduce you to our latest smokeshow of a #dgbride! This is Callie, who married her soulmate Chandler in a gorgeously airy and modern wedding in March! We absolutely loved her classic yet sexy bridal look – and her body’s silhouette is to die for! Check out these romantic and moody photos courtesy of The Brightness Project, husband and wife duo Patience and Nathan who are definitely becoming fast favorites of ours.

Can we PLEASE talk about how freaking curvacious Callie looks?! Her Essense of Australia gown was made of mikado, perfect for creating excellent structure throughout the day, allowing you to look and feel your best. The explosion of tulle in the mermaid skirt creates anchor for the silhouette, highlighting her hips and her tiny waist. Add in the sexy plunging neckline and exposed strapless sweetheart and you’ve got a gown that is truly a stunner! And can you believe there’s almost no beading on this dress at all?  It’s all primarily sequins!

Callie chose to keep her look classic and timeless by keeping her accents neutral, like black and greenery. Chandler wore a classic black suit that kept his look just as sharp as Callie’s! We loved their rainy day celebration photos at the end of the night – moody, romantic, and a tad bit of sexy!

Chandler and Callie also had a ceremonial Native American blanket ceremony at their wedding, in which a custom blanket was wrapped around them to envelope them in love and support for their life ahead. These touching photos were probably our favorite of their entire gallery. It was so special and unique!

THANK YOU so much, Callie, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. You were an absolute BLAST to style and we are so proud to be able to call you a #dgbride. You truly looked beautiful in your Essense gown! We wish you and Chandler a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to the Dohe’s!

#dgbride: Peyton

May 25, 2021

Hokay, y’all, get some water ready because this next #dgbride is spicy, spicy, spicy!! Please give a warm introduction to Peyton, a fantabulous DG babe who rocked a sexy and sultry Martina Liana gown on her moody wedding day. Peyton is stylist at No Coast Salon, which is located directly diagonal from us here in Delano! So we’re a little biased, because not only is she a DG bride, but she’s also a local community member whom we love to support! Check out her fabulous photos courtesy of our girl, Shelby Laine – you know, the real MVP!

Peyton’s wedding day was the ultimate dreamy, classic day. She kept her color palette neutral, focusing on ivory, black, and natural greenery, allowing for everyone’s natural beauty to be the true focus. Her classic black tuxes kept the entire day formal yet timeless, which was perfect for their day at The Barn at Grace Hill! The venue’s natural beauty made it so Peyton could keep her entire decor simplistic and chic.

Peyton chose an absolutely stunning Martina Liana gown with bespoke off-the-shoulder straps. Her ivory-on-ivory dress sparkled effortlessly and we LOVE the plunging neckline and illusion back – the definition of sexy! Add in her dramatic train and this gown is truly a show stopper. We also love how Peyton made it her own by creating the off-the-shoulder straps specifically for her bridal day look.

Are you surprised that her hair and makeup were perfect?! We sure weren’t. When you work with the No Coast Salon girls, you’re guaranteed to look absolutely ROCKING on your wedding day! Peyton’s classic bridal updo featuring messy, face-framing pieces, statement earrings, and cathedral veil definitely made the whole look a “WOW” type of moment.

Okay, but really – have you seen a more smokin’ hot couple?! We love that Peyton kept her groom’s look totally lowkey and stylish. His classic black tux really dressed up the day, while also keeping his look totally classic. Add in her gorgeous ivory roses as accents and we fell heels-over-head! This is the definition of a formal, stylish, yet totally chic wedding day.

Congratulations to the Youngs! Peyton, we so appreciate you choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved styling you, helping you find your perfect look, and love cheering you on from across the street. We wish you & Brittain a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter! Cheers to you both!

 

#dgcouple: Amy & Rhiannon

May 22, 2021

It’s time for a #dgbrides throwback! Happy 2nd anniversary to Amy & Rhiannon, one of our power couples, who got married in May 2018 in a bright, airy, romantic ceremony. Check out their gorgeous photos thanks to Kingmon Creative based out of Los Angeles, California!

Dress Gallery consultant, Katie, was lucky enough to be the stylist for both of these fabulous women. Being able to help both Amy & Rhiannon was so fun for her! Not only did it allow her to pick dresses that perfectly complimented each other, but it was also so entertaining to know what each brides’ dress looked like while they were in the dark!

Rhiannon chose a gorgeous a-line Morilee gown with a detailed lace strap, delicate frosted beading, and a banded waist. We love that she kept her styling traditional by adding a gorgeous fingertip length lace veil! And we’re biased, but we also love how this dress showcases her cool collarbone tattoos.

Amy ended up choosing a gorgeous sheath-fit Maggie Sottero gown featuring an illusion keyhole back, soft stretch lace, and a soft v neckline. The beaded detailing on the back makes this a true stunner! We love how Amy’s feminine silhouette and light beading mirrored Rhiannons.

Happy anniversary, Rhiannon & Amy! Thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery to be your bridal boutique. We were so blessed to know you both and love watching your family grow through the years. We are so proud to call you both #dgbrides! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, & laughter.

Whimsically Boho Backyard Elopement Styled Shoot

May 19, 2021

Okay, fam – time to show off our latest creative collaboration with K + P Photography! They reached out to us about doing a styled shoot focusing on organic, natural backdrops and breezy, easy-going vibes. We absolutely love this bohemian backyard styled shoot that’s the perfect combination of local elopement and intimate ceremony. Add in the colorful, wild florals and the macramé accents and this shoot is to DIE for! We’re biased, but we totally love this eclectic-meets-cool styling for your big day. Let us know your favorite part of this shoot on Facebook!

Can we PLEASE talk about how cool this boho elopement dress is? Featuring a plunging neckline, delicate sheet lace, a stretch liner, and not a lick of beading throughout – this is definitely for the girl who wants to let her body be the stunner. We paired this cool dress with a super unique fringe capelet to add extra pizazz and spice! If you’re not a traditional cape girl, you can change up your look by doing a cape, off-the-shoulder sleeves, a bow, and more! Talk to your consultant about different ways to customize your look (:

We kept the menswear look cool and casual, fitting with the down-to-earth vibe of the wedding. We went with our Casual Groom package, which includes everything your guys will need except for the jacket! So if you’re looking for a low key yet super stylish look for your groom, come and see us! We love the unique Mulberry color of his pants, but we pulled the dusty color palette in with champagne suspenders and a gorgeous dusty rose velvet bowtie!

This look is so fun and sexy! This dreamy Morilee gown is perfect for any bride who wants the spotlight to truly be on them during their wedding day. Plus, we cannot get over how freaking cool these florals are from Free State Flora! This dusty and petite wildflower bouquet fits the totally ethereal and whimsical vibe perfectly. Definitely call Emily for your floral needs!

What was your favorite part of this styled shoot?! Let us know on Facebook!
