#dgcouple: Summer & AJ
April 2, 2021
Time to introduce our newest #dgcouple, Summer & AJ! We are super biased about this couple because we had actually met them a few times prior, as they were in bridal parties here at Dress Gallery for their family members. When it came to choosing their bridal boutique, the Hinnens decided to trust Dress Gallery, as their previous experience went so well! They got married in December 2020 during a beautiful winter sunset ceremony. Check out their gorgeous photos courtesy of Kylee Grace Photography, one of the newest photographers we’ve been introduced to and HOLY GOODNESS RUN, DON’T WALK, TO BOOK HER!
When it came to styling Summer for her wedding dress, we absolutely loved her clean, chic wedding vision. Her Mikado ballgown, with gorgeous box pleating, featured a beaded, illusion, cap-sleeve neckline and gorgeous open back. Her fabulously tousled hair was perfect with her delicate hairpiece!
Is there anything more classic than a bride in ivory Mikado?! We absolutely love this unique dress and the best part…it has pockets!
When it came to her bridesmaids, Summer definitely wanted the girls to feel comfortable and confident on her wedding day. She chose a universally flattering Morilee gown in Bordeaux, perfect for her winter time wedding! We love the simplistic, coordinating look of her girls. We love her off-the-shoulder, satin a-line dress they picked! They complimented Summer’s formal wedding gown perfectly, while also allowing her bridesmaids movement on the wedding day – perfect for a party, ya know?!
Okay, okay, we can’t let the girls have all the spotlight, can we?! We were so lucky to be able to outfit AJ and his boys, too! AJ is definitely a rustic-type of guy, so we wanted to keep that down-to-earth attitude for his look as well. We love the pictures of him with his truck; it’s cool, personal, but also totally fits the vibe and backdrop of their wedding venue! Add jeans, boots, and a signature cowboy hat and this look is the best of both worlds – Western yet modern!
We let AJ shine by having him in the sport coat, allowing his groomsmen a more casual option with vests & ties. We love this way of having the groom standout. The Hinnens decided to utilize our menswear Rustic package, which is perfect for everyone looking to wear jeans & boots on their wedding day. This package includes the vest, shirt, and tie, which is a great option for brides who want a more laid back look.
Can we also talk about how great their wedding looks out at the Barn at Grace Hill? The winter wheat created beautiful backdrops for their photos which we think perfectly complimented their Western-esque wedding. Add in the chic, clean contrast of the white barn & Summer’s white dress and we’re obsessed! This venue gets prettier with every wedding we see styled there.
Congratulations, AJ & Summer! We cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery with your bridal attire; we are extra thankful! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to the Hinnens!
