Okay, y’all, we just got sent some seriously fabulous photos thanks to the Ashleys over at Kay x Bee of our newest #dgbride, Natalie! She married her spouse, Dalton, is a bright and dreamy church ceremony in June 2021. We fell heels over head with this group and were so thankful that Natalie trusted us to style not only her, but her girls, too. Their gorgeously classic ceremony was filled with natural accents, pops of pinks, and the most glowing couple. See some of our favorite shots below!

Natalie picked a super unique gown, “Poe” by Chic Nostalgia. Her timeless fitted silhouette paired with funky and modern lace appliques was the perfect combination for this super cool bride. We love her soft crystal and pearl accents throughout her wedding day look and her raw edge fingertip length veil is the epitome of bridal! Her v neck, v back totally fit her summertime wedding and we love the different details like the side cut outs!

For her ‘maids, Natalie chose an absolutely stunning color in Kanali K “Rosewood.” She kept her day easy and matching by having all the girls wear a sleek, softly flowing high neckline sleeveless dress – perfect for June and complimenting Natalie’s stunning bridal gown. Having her maids in matching gowns kept the entire ordering process easy, as the girls collectively picked a style they enjoyed and simply got measured! Super easy, super quick, low stress – exactly how bridesmaids dresses should be!

We can’t take credit for Dalton’s look, but love that Natalie complimented her pink accents with cool, classic navy. We love navy for summertime weddings especially – it’s dark enough to look formal while still being a cooler, lighter option than traditional black. Paired with a good pair of brown shoes and you have a timelessly handsome look! We have some great navy suit and tuxedo options similar to Dalton’s wedding day look and if you’re a DG bride, you receive discounts on your rentals. We’ll do our best to make you look as sharp as Dalton here! (Also, peep Natalie’s pearl heels! How cute!)

Congratulations, Natalie and Dalton! We so appreciate you trusting us to style you + your girls for the big day. We absolutely love the gown you chose and are so thankful we got to play a small part in your wedding memories. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Clouse’s!

Guys, we have been DYING to share these photos of a gorgeous #dgfamily! We are so thankful for CheyAnn and Addison; they had to postpone their spring 2020 wedding and then, SURPRISE!, had baby James before their 2021 ceremony. We absolutely loved helping everyone get ready for their big day and were so blessed to watch their family blossom before our very eyes. We told CheyAnn that James was the guest of honor and since he hadn’t arrived yet, it was in the cards to get married in 2021 instead! Get ready to bawl your eyes out and gasp with delight at these stunning photos courtesy of Rebecca Rose Photography!

CheyAnn wanted the most organic, dreamy ceremony possible, so it was a no-brainer for her to pick Botanica as their ceremony site. The gorgeous natural backdrops and greenhouses make the perfect bohemian setting while also allowing for minimal decorations – everything is so beautiful as is! We think that CheyAnn’s gorgeously chic sheet lace dress, accented with pearls throughout, is the perfect combination of whimsical yet sophisticated for her gorgeous day. Plus, we love how she accented her hair with organic details to tie the whole look together!

How STUNNING is this gown?! CheyAnn chose a super cool Chic Nostalgia gown named “Femi” and she is the coolest, y’all. Her stunning sheet lace features dainty pearl beads, petite spaghetti straps, and an effortlessly down-to-earth silhouette that allowed CheyAnn to celebrate the night away while also looking beautiful. The way this dress drapes the body allowed for HER to be the true star. Plus, we love how perfect it looks with her boho florals and pops of pink accents!

We kept Addison’s look cool and collected, having him in a chic navy blue suit with champagne accents to match CheyAnn. He kept his look more formal by rockin’ the sport coat and the groomsmen being great supporters in our Casual Groom package. We love how CheyAnn opted for suspenders instead of vests to give this an even more down-to-earth vibe! This classic yet modern look is a perfect way to showcase your groomsmen while allowing the groom to be the true focus.

 

Are you all not DYING over these photos of CheyAnn, Addison, and their son, James?! There was so much joy and warmth radiating throughout their photos – we could feel it! Rebecca did an absolutely fabulous job capturing this family’s special, long-awaited day. To CheyAnn and Addison – THANK YOU for trusting Dress Gallery, stickin’ it out with us, and letting us watch your gorgeous family grow. We are truly blessed that you chose us as your bridal boutique and we will be forever thankful to have met you. We wish your family a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. Cheers to the Paulers!

Okay, guys, buckle up – we are getting in our feels for a second about our next #dgbride. Let us introduce you to Ashley, who is not only a bodacious Dress Gallery bride, but she’s also 1/2 of the dynamic wedding photography duo Kay + Bee photography, along with 1/2 of the badass podcast team The Bridal Breakdown. Ashley is literally a wedding professional in every sense of the word, so when she chose Dress Gallery as her bridal boutique, we were beyond honored. Ashley married her soulmate, Justin, during a super intimate and private ceremony in March 2020 – yep, you read that correctly. Ashley and Justin braved the very beginning of the pandemic craziness to elope in the Flint Hills and their pictures are all the more gorgeous for it. Take a peek at some of our favorites, shot by Ashley K – you know, the other half of Kay + Bee!

Being a wedding photographer, Ashley has seen bridal gowns literally every weekend for most of her adult life. Because of this, she knew exactly what she did and did not want. When it came to shopping, Ashley popped in during a slow Tuesday afternoon with just her mother; she worked with Katie to customize her Chic Nostalgia gown into exactly what she was looking for. We changed the neckline of her gown slightly in order to make it perfectly Ashley. Her soft, elegant beading kept her dress glam, but sophisticated and we loved the super bohemian lace pattern!

We’re also biased because we love Ashley’s style always, but we love how she styled her wedding day look. Her edgy snakeskin booties added the perfect pop of rock-n-roll to her romantic wedding and her sophisticated party ponytail kept her look ultra modern. Add in her dried florals and greenery along with organic accents like sticks and you have a super cool, super laid back bohemian wedding. Can we also please freak out over her starburst earrings? Because they’re literally fabulous.

We wish we could say that Justin looked stunning thanks to us, but we gotta be honest – that was all Ashley, too. She picked a textured tweed suit with floral accents. We love the multi-patterned look Justin’s rocking, complete with a sleek, satin gold tie to truly pull the look altogether.

We could go on and on about Ashley’s wedding planning, her vision, her thoughts, her experiences….but honestly, Ashley herself has already written a blog about it and she’s a thousand times more eloquent than we’d ever be. She was so thoughtful and intentional about her wedding planning; we love how she truly crafted her day by choosing what was special to her and Justin. Add in a crazy pandemic to the mix and there was a lot of uncertainty regarding their day.

Her blog, My Intimate Wedding – Shifting My Mindset Amidst A Global Pandemic, is a first-hand account of her wedding planning and perseverance during a crazy time. Take a peek and give it a look!

Ashley and Justin – we wish you both a happy anniversary and many more years of love, laughter, and happiness. To Ashley – we are so thankful for you. We are always so thrilled whenever we get to work with you and it is truly a blessing for us to have you be a #dgbride. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do for your brides – and, by extension, the beautiful images of our brides you let us use. Cheers to the Akins!
