Guys, you are gonna need some water for this next wedding, because this #dgcouple is SPICY. Like, not even jalapeno spicy. We’re talking Ghost Pepper level spice. Our gorgeous bride + groom, Iya and Dustin, got married in one of the most gorgeously modern, yet timeless ceremonies we’ve seen in a long time. Their photographer, Katy Elaine, totally NAILED their joyous day and we could feel the love radiating from every photo. You’re gonna LOSE IT when you see this bridal party, y’all! Get ready!

This ultra fun, ultra cool, ultra hip couple had a wedding VISION and it came together, y’all. Iya had a dream of a whimsical, romantic, super airy atmosphere with a hint of edge and sexiness. Their totally cool style came together perfectly to create a timeless wedding with the MOST FUN atmosphere. Plus, maybe we’re biased, but how cool does everyone look?!

For real, we cannot get over how fabulous Iya looks! She chose an absolutely stunning Essense of Australia gown, perfectly fitted to her silhouette, with sexy yet sophisticated side cut outs and a plunging v neckline. Her delicate spaghetti straps were beaded with the same soft, white beading used throughout the dress, along with sequining and a layer of cool, textured glitter to add dimension to the dress. Her dramatic extended train totally created a “WOW” moment and we love how she framed her body with a long chapel-length veil!

When it came to styling the bridal party, we can’t take credit for Iya’s maids – she did those all herself. She was a fashion forward bride looking for silk satin midi dresses before our designers made that style. NOW, however, we have some great silk satin options for brides wanting to pull off a look similar to this! Her champagne accents were a perfect neutral against the boys’ classic navy suits. We love how Dustin kept his look just a little different from his groomsmen, allowing them to pop with floral ties and keeping the simplistic vibe all to himself!

We can’t get over how these two look at each other! Iya’s gorgeous Essense gown totally fit the vibe for the fun and funky vision they were wanting, while still feeling traditional bridal. Her big, bold lace appliques throughout kept his gown modern and the stretch jersey liner allowed her to dance the night away while still showing off her hips! We might be biased, but this style is a PERFECT choice for brides like Iya – fun, flirty, yet totally dramatic! D3066 is a dress totally made with the modern bride in mind.

Congratulations to you both, Iya and Dustin! We are SO BEYOND THANKFUL y’all chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. You were a blast to style, we loved hanging out with you + your group, and we totally lost it when we saw your wedding album. We’re going to be talking about your wedding for years to come. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have in abundance. Now, drink some for us. Cheers to the Browns!

Get ready to fall heels-over-head in love with our newest #dgbride, Samantha! She married her soulmate, Austin, in a super cool and fun summertime ceremony. We loved their upbeat-yet-ultra-chill attitude that permeated throughout their whole wedding. Who better to shoot it yet than our girl, Shelby Laine photography?! Literally there was not a better combo than this couple + Shelby. You’re going to want to totally copy all of this wedding (that’s okay, we totally do, too!), so don’t forget to save all your favorite photos!

Samantha kept her wedding vision totally timeless, chic, and classic, which neutrals (ivory + black) featuring greenery accents throughout. We’re obsessed with her anemones, creating a super edgy yet totally cool bouquet! Her classic lace A-line gown combined with Austin’s handsome and chic black tuxedo is going to look totally perfect for years to come.

Samantha chose an absolutely stunning MGNY A-line gown, featuring a gorgeous v-neckline, dramatic strappy back, frosted embroidered lace, and delicate detailing throughout the bodice. We love the trickling lace appliques throughout the skirt and the extra va-va-voom that the hem lace brings! Plus, do you peek Samantha’s secretly sexy side cut outs?! This dress is the perfect combination of traditional yet modern, modest yet sexy. We love how they had a ton of fun with these funky sunglasses as a great wedding day photo prop! Bringing in cool props like sunglasses totally personalizes your wedding photos and also creates a totally unique look!

YAS SAMANTHA! WORK THAT SKIRT! For real, can we talk about how much volume Samantha has in this skirt? Not quiet a ball gown, yet a little more full than a flowy A-line, this MGNY gown has the perfect amount of volume for brides wanting drama, yet comfort for their wedding day. Add in the super bold and dramatic lace appliques and you have a STUNNER ready for the dancefloor!

Congratulations to the Tedders! Thank you, Samantha, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved working with you and styling you on this super special day. Your MGNY gown was truly made for you and we’ll be talking about your super cool and industrial wedding for years to come. We wish you + Austin a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to you both!

Guys – we are freaking out over this styled shoot we were invited to stylized by Couture Ever After. Nikki is truly a visionary in the wedding planning and event rental space; we always love seeing what her creative brain comes up with. Inspired by a dusty, romantic bohemian ceremony, Nikki created a custom backdrop and swing for this photoshoot – and then gave away a free photo session to a couple for Valentine’s Day! The whole team wanting to create a Valentine’s Day-inspired shoot unlike any other. There are so many great vendors to shout out, including our girl Free State Flora – peek the bottom of the post for a full list of vendors and links to their websites! (Quick S/O to Shelby Laine, because how dreamy are these photos?!)

HOKAY FAM, GET READY FOR FLAWLESSNESS. Introducing #dgbride Savannah, one of our only Hayley Paige brides. We have a limited selection of Hayley Paige dresses (with only two left!) and Savannah snagged up Lorelei, one of our absolute favs. She married her soulmate, Jimmy, in a gorgeously intimate ceremony in November 2020. We legit freaked out over these moody, romantic photos courtesy of Staci Brucks Photography – run, don’t walk, to hire her!!

Savannah is one of our only Hayley Paige brides; the dresses available were sold off-the-rack, meaning Savannah snagged this baby for a great deal and it fit her like a GLOVE. Her gorgeous long sleeves were perfect for her chilly autumn wedding and we love the blush undertone against the moody colors in her palette. Also, peep Jimmy’s green velvet jacket – we can’t take credit for that, but it looks so sharp, we wish we could!

Savannah wanted the ultimate glam wedding and we think she nailed it. When she added in the awesome accessories, like those fabulous glitter booties, she definitely pushed this gown to the ultimate limit. She took an already fabulous gown and added an extra splash of glam. She looked like the ultimate rocker chic bride and we are so jealous!

Dramatic earrings + psychedelic glitter booties + cathedral-length sprinkled pearl veil = literally the ultimate power goddess look. We also love how carefree and happy both Savannah and Jimmy looked in their photos; Staci captured their wild love so perfectly!

Do you want to be a DG Hayley Paige bride?! We have two remaining dresses available for sale, so make an appointment with us and we’ll pull those dresses for you!

Thank you SO MUCH Savannah for choosing DG. We absolutely LOVED working with you; you were a total babe! We wish you & Jimmy a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Fishers!

OKAY GUYS, so we’ve been waiting very, very, very patiently to show off this styled shoot we did at the end of summer. The visionaries over at Endless Treasures came up with this super cool, 80’s-vibes concept that we jumped at the chance to help out with! We love how laid back, down-to-earth, but totally fun and funky this styled shoot turned out. If you’re a bride wanting something totally different or someone planning a super cool vow renewal – we think this would be the perfect inspiration! Thanks a whole bunch to our love the Ashleys over at Kay + Bee for this fab photos – we love you, girls!

Endless Treasures had a great vision in mind when putting together this styled shoot. They wanted a bright, airy day complete with pops of bright, neon colors and 80s accents. When it came to styling Madyson & Lucas, our models, the girls knew exactly what they wanted – something funky for Lucas and a two piece for Madyson!

We knew that our traditional bridal gowns wouldn’t create the “wow” impact that Endless Treasures was hoping for, so we created this custom look for them by piecing together a tie-front shirt and a gorgeous royal blue satin romper-skirt! It was actually the bottom of a two piece prom outfit we had! Paired with Madyson’s rocker-chic curly mohawk and the artistic details, we are totally heels-over-head for this look.

Styled shoots take a village to pull off and while we’re proud to have played a small part with the outfits, there were so. many. vendors. that helped make this vision come to life. We love the tropical florals provided by Revel Gardens and the terrazzo-inspired cake from Stand Tall Bakery! Check the bottom of the post for the full list of vendors.

Can we PLEASE swoon over the super cool cassette tape seating chart and these massive, over-the-top tropical florals?! We also love the cute, repetitive detail of used paintbrushes throughout! We think would be the coolest elopement or quick ceremony for any art lovers! Also, can we talk about the bohemian-cool atmosphere that the tropical-colored fringe creates?! We love a good fringe!

Thank you so much to Botanica for hosting us! Their rainbow bridge was the perfect backdrop to accent our rainbow-inspired day.

When it came to Lucas’s look, we kept his ceremony outfit traditional-cool with an all ivory look to offset the amount of color throughout. For his reception look, we swapped the jacket for a funky, color pattern that perfectly accented Madyson’s skirt! We love how cool and unique this couple looks together.

Thank you SO MUCH to all the vendors that helped up create this super cool styled shoot! This is definitely one of our favorites one to date. We love the super unique vision the ladies at Endless Treasures had and are so glad they chose us to help. Check out all of the other fabulous vendors listed below with links to their business pages!
