#dgcouple: Tanya + Doyle
January 15, 2022
Hold onto your horses, fam, because we have the CUTEST Western/Mexican-inspired wedding coming to grace the blog today. Our next #dgcouple, Tanya and Doyle, got married on Tanya’s RANCH – yes, you read that right! Tanya owns her own ranch in Western Kansas and is the type of bride who prides herself on hard work. Being an independent woman was important to her, so when she found Doyle, her partner who supported her love of livestock and animals, she knew he was the one. Their fabulous photographer, Gentle Rayne, was a perfect choice to showcase their down-to-earth, totally natural wedding day. You’re going to LOVE the bright pops of colors, Mexican accents, and totally infectious smiles throughout all these sneak peek photos!
WE MADE A HORSE PUN BUT WE WERE SERIOUS, Y’ALL! Since their animals are such an important part of their daily lives, it only made sense to include their favorite furry loved ones in their wedding photos! We love ANY opportunity for our brides to showcase their passions on their wedding day and we love how totally unique Tanya’s photos turned out! Both their wedding day looks were the perfect combination of formal, yet comfortable for their celebration-focus receptions. The entire day was all about being comfortable and confident while partying with close friends and loved ones!
Tanya chose an absolutely STUNNING fitted Morilee gown, complete with stretch liner (which was a must for riding on her wedding day!) We wanted a silhouette that showcased her curves while still allowing Tanya to be the star of the show. Tanya is petite, so all of our sample dresses in store DROWNED her. We knew that alterations would be an important thing to consider since her height would mean cutting off multiple inches from each dress. Instead, we focused on designers that did custom heights and petite styles so that Tanya could feel her best, but also have a gown made to her proportions!
Her soft off-the-shoulder gown, Morilee style 3303, was ordered in Morilee’s most petite length, meaning Tanya was able to find her perfect gown without sacrificing over a foot off the bottom of the dress! We love that she trusted her gut and chose a dress that showed off her figure while still allowing her to move freely throughout the day. Add in her gorgeous illusion back, complete with buttons down the train, and soft sequining throughout the gown and you have a STUNNER for this Western-inspired wedding!
Tanya’s girls chose stunning Kanali K styles all their own, while keeping the look cohesive by having everyone in their gorgeous “Petal” color. Her maid of honor stood out amongst the crowd in a stunning Romance color, allowing for color dimension in the photos while also having her most important maid stand out! We had an absolute blast styling these girls; they were ALWAYS a bundle of fun and down to be the center of the party!
For Doyle and his men, we decided to keep the look down-to-earth and totally fitting of their jeans-and-boots vibe. We dressed Doyle up in a gorgeous tan jacket, having him match Tanya’s formality in her gown, while keeping the rest of his men in our Rustic Package. They were able to wear their own jeans and boots while having us style their vests, ties, and shirts so they color matched the bridesmaids! We love this combination for rustic or Western-themed weddings; the groom gets to be a little more dressed up in his jacket, while his guys get a comfortable, affordable package that we can color match to any color palette!
Congratulations, Tanya and Doyle! We absolutely LOVED getting to know you both and helping you style your group. You were all A BLAST and we are so thankful you kept us laughing every time your group arrived. We are secretly sad y’all are done with the “wedding” because can’t you just get married every year to come hang out with us?! Thank you again for trusting Dress Gallery – we wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and good beer. Cheers to the LaRosh’s!
