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!

It’s time to show off another #dgcouple, but this time, they’re a part of the extended Dress Gallery family! Introducing Katie and Josh, a rock-n-roll couple who didn’t let COVID-19 rain on their crazy, fun parade. They threw caution to the wind and had a fun, whirlwind day full of romance, laughter, and good alcohol – is there even a better day?! Katie is actually Shelby Laine Photography‘s mama, so when she was dress shopping, our girl Shelbs didn’t even give her another option of where to look. Can you guess who did the gorgeous photos?! (Psst – it’s Shelby, duh.) Get ready to fall in love with this ultra cool couple!

Can we talk about this unique wedding venue?! Katie and Josh had to change their plans a few times due to COVID-19, so eventually they both threw up their hands and said “Let’s just have some fun!” A family friend owned a liquor store, which they decorated for the occasion and filled with cardboard cutouts along with a small group of friends and family. The entire day was down-to-earth and intimate, along with totally cool! Get ready to take a peek at the bridesmaids’ bouquets!

Katie’s bridesmaids were the most fun group of girls. She wanted the group to be mismatched, but keeping in the jewel tones of her wedding colors. We girls dressed up their outfits however they wanted to, boots or heels, and we love the unique combination of colors and styles. Add in bouquets wrapped in Crown Royal bags (we told you this day featured good liquor!) and you have the the perfect combo between fun and sophisticated.

We kept Josh’s look sleek and cool, featuring a patterned black tuxedo and hunter green accents. We love how he paired his look with silver sparkly Chuck Taylors – the perfect compliment to Katie’s belt! Also, can we talk about ROCKING her pink leather jacket it?! Talk about the ultimate alternative bride! The whole day was Quintessential Katie & Josh, a fun-loving couple who wanted an equally fun and fabulous wedding day.

Congratulations, Josh & Katie! We are so thankful for you to have chosen Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We absolutely loved getting to know you and consider you a part of our DG family! Cheers to you both – and drink an extra one for us!

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!

Drumroll, please, because we are super excited to introduce you to #dgbride Regan! She was planning a super quick and intimate ceremony in the Colorado mountains before COVID changed their plans. Like any good COVID bride, though, she didn’t let it get her down! Regan married her soulmate, Grant, at a gorgeous autumnal ceremony in November 2020. Peep out the fabulous photos courtesy of our girl Shelby Laine – you know, our fav!

Regan chose an absolutely stunning long-sleeve, off-the-shoulder Morilee gown that was BRAND SPANKING NEW in our store the day of her appointment. Like, literally – we hadn’t even steamed the skirt out yet! So Regan was our very first bride in this sample gown and it fit her like a dream. We tried on a few more just to make sure, but everyone was stunned at Dress #1!

We absolutely loved styling Regan for her big day; her flowy, ethereal gown was perfect for her low-key, down-to-earth ceremony. Her bright, bold wildflower florals were the perfect accent to the moody undertone of the day. We love how they pulled the bright accents into Grant’s tie and florals as well!

We can’t show you pictures of Regan and Grant’s big day without including the most important part – their daughter, Lennon! She totally stole the show in all of the photos. We absolutely loved how Regan matched her bridal gown to Lennon’s; the soft lace long sleeves were a perfect mini-me to Regan’s gown! Watching this beautiful family vow to love each other forever made sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!

Congratulations to you both, Regan & Grant! We are so thankful you trusted Dress Gallery with such a big decision for your special day. We loved being a small part of your family’s important moment. We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, & laughter!

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!

We absolutely love when other vendors reach out to us to do styled shoots. We almost never say “no!” to the opportunity to collaborate with other local vendors and create magic. Our girl Shelby Laine partnered up with local event decor dream company Endless Treasures to create this fabulous set up. If you’re wanting a wedding that can be specially curated to your tastes, reach out to the women at Endless Treasures – they can make any vision come to life!

For our first dress choice, we chose Chic Nostalgia’s “Alice” gown. This dress is the ultimate pick for any shimmer lover. The glittered lace throughout the dress picks up every bit of light and allows you to shine with every step! Featuring an off-the-shoulder flouncy sleeve and a soft v neckline and flowy, not full, a-line skirt, this dress is the ultimate forest elopement dream!

We love how Endless Treasures kept the styling for this shoot simplistic, vintage, and subtle. The mismatched china, the colored goblets, the dainty doily accents – all of it came together for a perfect, Alice-in-Wonderland type tea party in the middle of the forest! We love their natural window backdrop and vintage rugs to help elevate the space.

Our second look for this styled shoot is a gorgeous Martina Liana featuring a modern scoop neckline, spaghetti straps, 3D florals, and a huge amount of sparkle. This gown is truly for a bride wanting to make a statement on her wedding day! We love how Shelby captured the beauty of the gown surrounded by the trees.

Thanks so much, Shelby Laine & Endless Treasures, for the fun morning! We are so thankful you always think of us.
