Okay, guys, we’ve been holding onto this ultra hot #dgcouple since their beautiful autumn wedding and it’s time to finally release our love to the world. Super fabulous bride Arin married her soulmate, Jacob, in an ethereally bohemian ceremony complete with dried florals, canoe canoodling, a sexy surprise, and a totally customized gown. We LOVE the details accented throughout this wedding because Arin totally committed in every aspect. Our girl Shelby Laine was the perfect partner as their wedding photographer, capable of catching the unique and silly moments just as well as the sultry, romantic ones. Arin is one of our ONLY bride in this gown and she even customized it to make it perfectly unique to her. Get ready to fall in love with this ultra chic wedding in these shots below!

Arin is a hairstylist based in Winfield, which means she had a VISION for her wedding day and that she executed to perfection. We love her super ultra, extra bold dried floral hair accessory in lieu of a veil along with her whimsically flowy Chic Nostalgia gown. Her base dress is Penelope, a stunning strapless A-line gown featuring a plunging sweetheart neckline and bold, sequined lace appliques through the bodice. The detached, off-the-shoulder bishop sleeves create a super fun, ultra funky look that was totally unique for Arin’s wedding day. She spiced up the gown by choosing to do a neutral undertone and added a sexy slit in one side for an extra pop of drama!

When it came to styling Jacob’s guys, we customized the look they were wanting by mix-and-matching some of our purchase and rental options. Jacob preferred the look of our linen sand suit, which is available for purchase, but didn’t need the jacket for his guys’ casual look. The groomsmen purchased their pants (which were casual enough to get some serious reuse out of them!), while rented the rest of their look. Doing this allowed for Jacob and Arin to get the exact look they wanted, while their guys got the best bang for their buck by keeping the item they’d reuse most, but renting what might be a one-time wear!

Arin’s girls needed looks that were JUST as spicy and fun as her wedding day style. We chose a mix-matched color palette in her dusty-neutral inspiration, allowing the girls to choose styles + colors they felt comfortable and confident in. We found some great Morilee bridesmaids dresses in fabulous colors, including their Fawn, Spice, Latte colors that create the ultimate autumn collection! We can’t take credit for ALL of her ‘maids, as Arin was fashion-forward and wanted some velvet colors that our designers were a season behind for. Love her look, though? NEVER FEAR! We have some GREAT new browns + taupes in our velvet options to create this same color palette along with different textures!

Seriously – what a FUN wedding day! We were all smiles looking at the Behrhorst wedding gallery. Jacob and Arin, thank you SO MUCH for trusting Dress Gallery to style you. We had an absolute blast getting to know you both. We have a feeling that brides are going to be showing us your wedding photos for years to come. We wish you and your family the absolute best in your life together. Now, cheers to you – and go drink one for us!

Alright, guys, this wedding is a HOT ONE and y’all better be ready! Our next #dgbride we can’t wait to introduce is Bri, who married her soulmate, Parker, in a super stunning, elegant, yet secretly-sexy ceremony. Their photographer, Katy Elaine, was literally the PERFECT choice for the Vanderhoofen’s. Katy’s unique yet elegant style of photography, along with her ability to capture those tiny, intimate moments between the bride + groom, had us BAWLING over this album y’all. Get ready to fall in love with their entire day below:

Bri and Parker envisioned a romantic, neutral, classic wedding for their day, keeping with a black-and-ivory theme with pops of pastel peaches to accent. Their timeless wedding day totally fit their traditional vibe while still being full of bright, fun accents that complimented their fun personality. Bri chose a stunningly unique Chic Nostalgia gown, (style Zelda), which was the perfect balance between bohemian and classic that she was looking for!

Sorry, not sorry for the photo overload of Bri! Her absolutely stunning Chic Nostalgia gown featured an A-line silhouette with a gorgeously geometric banded waist, highlighting Bri’s waistline and flowing effortlessly into the textured tulle skirt. Her soft ruffles throughout the skirt allowed for extra movement and whimsy while also creating design features unseen in other dresses. We love the soft 3D florals and beading throughout her bodice along with a keyhole back that help catches attention from any angle!

When it came to styling Bri’s girls, she knew she wanted to keep everything simple and classic in black dresses. She allowed her girls to pick their own styles so they felt confident and comfortable on wedding day! She chose simple Morilee chiffon bridesmaids dresses in black, which totally gives the girls freedom to show off their personalities comfortably. Plus, they were able to groove all night long with their comfortable fits!

We can’t take credit for Parker’s classic black look, but have similar styles for any groom wanting to mirror his black-and-ivory vibe! We love how timeless a black tuxedo looks; it’s an outfit that looks great for generations while always feeling modern! Pair with a patterned tie, a slight metallic, or a cool pop of color to match your wedding if you’re wanting an extra pop of “WOW!” for your groom.

Congratulations, Bri and Parker! We are so thankful you trusted us to be your bridal boutique. We LOVED getting to know you both, your fun group of girls, and your beautiful little family. We’re excited to watch you all grow in your love. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter. Cheers to the Vanderhoofens!

Giddy up, y’all, and hold onto your cowgirl hats, because we have the coolest wedding we’ve seen in a hot minute about to drop on the blog! Our newest #dgbride Meghin literally created the most gorgeous wedding for her summertime ceremony marrying her soulmate, Tyler. Her modern take on a Western wedding is TO DIE FOR and her photographer, Bridget Nicole, has quickly jumped to a top favorite of ours. You’re going to want to steal every piece of Meghin’s wedding, so get ready to fall in love!

Meghin wore an absolutely fabulous Chic Nostalgia gown named “Quest,” which she customized with shoulder cuffs for an ultimate bohemian vibe. Her fitted strapless gown is a timeless silhouette, while her geometric and floral lace combination recreates the ultimate boho look. We love her totally unique and bespoke pieces to her wedding day look, too. From her leather buckle booties to her leather branded accents, we are OBSESSED with her styling. Just take a peek at her gorgeous bandana bouquet wrap!

Meghin kept her super edgy look classic and feminine by adding pearl accents in her jewelry and veil, which matched the petite beaded detailing throughout her dress. We love her gorgeously wild bouquet courtesy of Roots and Blooms was perfect – the pampas grass accented against the creamy, dusty florals complimented the nude undertone of her gown! Meghin had a vision for her wedding day look and we love how she stuck to it, regardless of how “nontraditional” it may seem. These are the photos you’ll remember forever, so wear what makes you feel the most confident and beautiful!

We can’t take credit for Tyler’s look, but his modern rustic grooms attire complimented Meghin perfectly. Everything from the leather accents to the pampas grass boutonniere was the ultimate pairing to Meghin’s sexy yet sophisticated Western look. They kept their bridal party casual and comfortable with flowy emerald chiffon dresses and casual attire for the groomsmen! Also, can we PLEASE talk about Meghin’s gorgeous sparkly romper she changed into for the reception?! Because while we can’t take credit for that fabulous frock, we can ABSOLUTELY be jealous of her style!

Congratulations, Meghin and Tyler! We cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery to style you for your big day. We truly believe that “Quest” was just waiting for you, the ultimate cool bride, to rock on your wedding day! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have in abundance. Cheers to the Bowmans!

 

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, y’all, we’re showing off another #dgbride a little differently today. Total babe, Lauren, decided to take bridal portraits out in Colorado during her mountaintop elopement and we are HERE. FOR. IT. It’s not very often that brides decide to treat themselves to a photoshoot dedicated solely to them – and we think these fabulous shots courtesy of The Brightness Project are some of our favorites. (Psst – Lauren’s veil was even made by our consultant, Katie, and her business Heirloom Couture!)

Have you fallen absolutely in love yet?! Because we have. Lauren’s super bohemian, ultra sexy Chic Nostalgia gown featured a sweetheart neckline, petite pearl beading, a detailed waist band, and the most ethereal veil. Add in the naturally beautiful Colorado scenery and you have a total STUNNER. We love how Lauren styled her look with simplistic pearl jewelry and a soft flower crown!

I mean, seriously…..Lauren, you’re beaming! The golden hour lighting makes the blush undertone of her dress totally pop and we love the soft baby breath’s bouquet to add just a touch of whimsy!

Congratulations, Lauren, and thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique! We loved styling you and will seriously not stop freaking out over these photos for years to come. Cheers to you!

Time to show off one super sexy, ultra cool, boho #dgbride! Introducing Cambry, who married her sweetheart Elliott in a super luxurious ceremony in March 2021. Their springtime ceremony featured bright florals, emerald green accents, and the most stunning bohemian wedding dress – but we might be a little biased. Shout out to our resident favorite, Shelby Laine, for these rockin’ photos of Cambry’s wedding!

Cambry chose an absolutely stunning strapless Chic Nostalgia gown featuring a soft fit-and-flare silhouette, delicate sheet lace with eyelash trim, and pearl accents throughout! This gown is one of our favorites, showing off Cambry’s body while also allowing her to be comfortable all night! We love how she paired her look with wild curls, fresh florals, and a delicate tulle cape-veil!

Can we talk about her gorgeously moody fresh florals?! We love the pops of deep purples and greens against the bright springtime backdrop! Elliott kept his look classic and airy by choosing a light grey suit that perfectly compliments Cambry’s ethereal gown.

Cheers to the Gossetts! Thank you so much, Cambry, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved getting to know you and help you find your fabulous bohemian gown. We wish you both a lifetime of love & happiness!

We absolutely love when vendors reach out to us to help with styled shoots. Collaborating with others to achieve a creative vision is part of what drives us. So when Sarah of Olivia Willow Designs, a newly-local event planning & design company, reached out to do her inaugural Wichita photoshoot, we were immediately in. This bohemian and Western-inspired styled shoot is great inspiration for any bride whose wild at heart! Take a peek of these gorgeous pictures featuring our Chic Nostalgia gown, Harmony!

(Psst – didn’t Becca Louise kill these photos?! She’s literally the best.)

We love how Sarah styled Harmony! This bohemian A-line gown was definitely made for a wide-brim hat and the wooden bead detailing is a perfect compliment to the Western style. The whole vibe is airy and earthy; we could totally see a Joshua Tree elopement in this dress!

Sarah decided to keep all the details and elements of this styled shoot natural, which we totally love. The overall neutral color palette allows for the earthy elements to really stand out – bright florals, wooden arches and chairs, sandy undertones with stylish rugs. This intimate mini-mony set up truly highlights the natural beauty around it!

Love this romantic and modern styled shoot as much as we do? Leave us & Sarah some love in the comments or on our Facebook!

Remember our first post about this photoshoot stylized by Couture Ever After? Well…..we’ve got more for you. The team went all out to create not one, not two, but FOUR looks between two real couples to showcase a multitude of dresses and suit attire. We absolutely loved being able to flex our creative muscles and pull some of our favorite boho dresses for this shoot. Thanks to our girl, Shelby, for these rockin’ images!

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!
