#dgcouple: Hailey + Andrew

December 31, 2021

To celebrate the upcoming new year, we decided to highlight one of our newest #dgcouples! Hailey and Andrew got married in a super intimate mountaintop elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park, followed by a gorgeous church ceremony in Wichita. Their adventurous spirit was perfectly captured by their photographer, Nomadicfitlust Photography, who specializes in Colorado destination weddings. We LOVED helping this totally sweet, compassionate couple and you are going to fall in LOVE with them both once you see these joyous photos. We wanted to shout it from the mountaintops – congratulations, Hailey and Andrew!

Call us biased, but is there a more romantic place to elope?! We love the juxtaposition between the Wittman’s formal attire and the rugged, natural beauty of the Rockies. This location is next to gorgeous Lake Isabelle and it was certainly a hike to get to this spot! You can check out Andrew and Hailey look EXTRA cute in their hiking gear, complete with ponchos, as they trekked up to their ceremony area. What a fun way to make memories with your spouse on wedding day!

When it came to her wedding dress, Hailey knew she wanted a gown that was comfortable enough to hike in, while also being formal enough to be worn during their Wichita church ceremony as well. Modesty was important to Hailey and she also knew she’d be in a chilly area, so sleeves were a definite must for her as well. Her consultant, Marisa, pulled the PERFECT Sottero and Midgley gown for her – Arleigh, a stunning long-sleeved, sheath gown featuring delicate beading and illusion shoulder cut outs. Hailey built up the back of the dress with additional lace for more coverage and the look is totally breathtaking for her mountainside ceremony!

Andrew came in wanting a fashion-forward suit that totally fit the Earth tone color palette for their wedding day. His sand colored suit was purchased from our menswear department and was tailored at our preferred seamstress. We love his slim fit cut that showcased his silhouette; we had to make sure he looked as good as Hailey! This light suit was a great combination of formal, yet down-to-Earth to fit the vibe of their wedding day.

As Christians, it was important for Hailey and Andrew to show their devotion not only to God, but to each other. We’ve seen multiple couples honor this tradition during their ceremonies, but we love that Hailey and Andrew were able to serve each other with beautiful Lake Isabelle as their water. It created not only gorgeous photos, but a truly intimate moment that resonated with everyone present. This was a beautiful way for them to honor their love for each other and God going forward in their marriage.

Congratulations, Hailey and Andrew! We are SO THANKFUL you trusted Dress Gallery to style you for your wedding day. We loved getting to know you both and are so lucky we were able to be a small part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. Cheers to the Wittmans!
