#dgcouple: Michaela & Josh
December 17, 2020
We have been anxiously waiting to show you this #dgcouple, Michaela & Josh! We love all of our couples, but the Wests are a couple near & dear to our hearts. We loved being able to help style Michaela, Josh, & their loved ones for their big day. Check out these STUNNING photos courtesy of Rebecca Rose Photography and fall just as in love with this happy-go-lucky couple as we did!
Michaela knew she wanted an autumnal wedding, complete with a dusty color palette and tons of bright florals. Originally, she thought she wanted a bohemian-inspired dress; we tried several head-to-toe lace options that weren’t quite right. Eventually, we decided to try something out of left field and picked a gorgeous a-line mikado strapless gown featuring bold lace in the bodice and a simplistic skirt.
Once everyone saw Michaela in the dress, we knew it was The One! We love how she styled her wedding day look by showcasing her gorgeous shoulders & neck with a simple up-do. Her dress was chic & timeless, which ended up fitting perfectly with the airy and bright theme!
Michaela paired her simplistic yet stunning gown with bright, textured florals which were perfect for her autumn ceremony. We loved the dried grasses which added great texture, but also the perfect neutral for all of her decor! Her altar was totally decked out with florals and dried grasses, which made the perfect backdrop!
When it came to styling her bridal party, Michaela knew she was looking for a mix-and-match color palette complete with lots of texture along with rusty oranges. She did a great job creating the color vision she was wanting and then letting her girls pick their own dresses based off the color palette! The end result was a gorgeously effortless look where you can tell everyone felt their best.
Styling Josh, his groomsmen, and important members of the family was also a job we took extra seriously. We wanted the men of the day to look just as good! Josh chose our striking navy blue tuxedo, complete with burnt orange accents and brown shoes, which matched the neutrals of the girls’ dresses perfectly. We also love that Michaela bridged the two looks with help of one of her bridesmen – by bringing in navy suspenders for him, he was able to help tie everyone together!
Can we talk about how good this group looks?! SERIOUSLY. And we are loving the natural autumnal backdrop. Michaela & Josh couldn’t have asked for a more perfectly timed wedding – just as the leaves are turning and falling!
Michaela and Josh were such a joy to work with. We are so thankful they chose Dress Gallery as their bridal boutique! Not only did your group look real good, (if we do say so ourselves!), but we loved being able to play a small part in your big day. Seeing your photos full of laughter & love brought us all the biggest smiles!
Congratulations to you, Josh & Michaela! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re certain you will have in abundance. Cheers to the Wests!
