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!

Okay guys, our next #dgcouple is literally one of the CUTEST couples we’ve ever seen. Introducing Hannah and Cheyden, who got married in an ultra dreamy autumnal ceremony complete with the most organic backdrops and fabulous sunset photos. Their photographer, Kristen Elise, is quickly become a fast favorite of ours. You’re gonna love her, too, when you see the pictures of these two smokin’ lovebirds. Check them out below!

Hannah wanted a romantic, organic, and totally timeless ceremony and we think she NAILED it. Her gorgeous Allure ballgown created gorgeous drama against the natural scenery while also highlighting her silhouette and truly showing her off. We love that Cheyden matched her sophisticated, upscale attire with a charcoal grey that still felt laid-back enough for their Earthy wedding day!

We absolutely LOVED Hannah’s big, dramatic ballgown from Allure Bridals (style 9652) a dramatic, handkerchief skirt featuring bold lace appliques throughout. Her secret, subtle sparkle is sewn throughout her appliques and her champagne under color was a perfect compliment to her hair and skin. We love that her high neckline showed off her cleavage in the most sophisticated and supportive way. Her illusion back is full of gorgeous buttons, creating a “WOW” moment from behind just as much as the front!

Can we also talk about Hannah and Cheyden’s GORGEOUS dusty, autumnal color palette? Not only did it perfectly match the nude/champagne undertone of Hannah’s dress, but we LOVE the pop of colors that the burnt oranges, maroons, and dark purples create. Paired with the gorgeous natural greens and browns of Prairie Gardens Inn and you have the ultimate combo of bohemian meets Midwestern traditional! We knew we wanted Cheyden’s look to be classic, while still accenting using those bold, rich jewel tones that Hannah loved. We ended up on a gorgeous maroon color for him and his groomsmen to compliment!

We also love that Cheyden stole the show as the only person in a jacket, allowing his groomsmen to be more comfortable and relaxed in our Casual Groom package. Did you know that with Casual Groom, you can customize and decide between vests or suspenders based off your preferred look? Cheyden and Hannah loved the classic bow tie + suspenders combo and we totally agree! You can mix-and-match looks to create WHATEVER you want your groomsmen to look like and we love helping the guys feel fashion-forward on wedding day!

Congratulations, Hannah and Cheyden! We are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We LOVED getting to know you both, hanging out with your group, and helping style you for such an important day. You guys were an absolute blast! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and lots of laughter. Now, cheers to the McClellans!

Guys. You are going to LOSE IT over our newest #dgcouple. We fell heels-over-head in love with Jessica and Nathan and we are positive you will, too. Their photographer, Alex Bo Photo, was the perfect choice for their ultra airy autumnal wedding. Their photos were SO SMOKIN’ that Morilee, Jessica’s dress designer, even featured their wedding on their socials and blog! Check out some of our favorite photos from their September wedding below!

Obviously, we’re a little biased toward this couple, but we were SWOONING over Jessica + Nathan’s ultra organic, super timeless wedding. Their romantic day was full of dusty colors, pops of navys, and the most sunkissed wedding photos we’ve seen in a hot second. Jessica chose a stunning flowy A-line Morilee gown, style 3302, featuring tank straps, bold floral appliques, and sequin kisses throughout the lace. We love her sexy, yet sophisticated plunging neckline and ultra dramatic train!

Peek Jessica’s ULTRA COOL glitter Keds! Comfort and FUN was the focus of the Oxendine wedding, so we knew that Jessica’s look needed to allow her to dance and party the night away. Her relaxed silhouette showcased her figure while still giving her lots of movement to groove with Nathan. Add in a comfortable, yet totally spunky shoe choice and you have the ultimate down-to-Earth wedding look that we won’t tell if you copy.

We knew for Nathan and his boys that a classic, timeless look was the way to go, but we love that Nathan stood out by being the only one in a jacket. The rest of his groomsmen opted for our Casual Groom package, matching Nathan while letting him have that extra piece of formalness that makes him the center of attention. Our new green ties were the perfect match to the organic greenery Jessica had planned throughout the day! This fitted navy suit is perfect for a groom wanting to look his best, but still let his personality shine on wedding day.

Congratulations, Jessica and Nathan!! We are so thankful you trusted us to style you for such an important day. We loved getting to know you both, hang out with your groups, and watch your love grow. We truly believe you will both have a lifetime of love, happiness, and TONS of pizza slices – because you’re a couple after our own hearts. We wish you both the best. Now, cheers to the Oxendines!

Guys, get ready to LOSE IT over our next #dgcouple! Alyssa + Thomas got married in a bright, sunny, and romantic June 2021 ceremony surrounded by an intimate amount of friends and family. We absolutely loved their modern, yet timeless spin on their wedding day. Shelby of Hound and Honey Photography, one of our personal favorites, perfectly captured this ethereal day. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots below!

Alyssa and Thomas wanted their wedding to be fun, down-to-earth, and the ultimate celebration of their love. That meant when it came to choosing her dress, we needed to find something that gave Alyssa the “WOW” factor she dreamed of, but the comfort to groove all night long. It was a no-brainer when it came to picking her perfect Essense of Australia ball gown! Style 6838 is fun, flirty ballgown featuring a ruffle handkerchief skirt and horsehair trim, a fabulously sequined bodice, and the ultimate Moscato undertone. Alyssa’s petite tank straps gave her plenty of support, but also allowed her softly plunging neckline to highlight the girls. We love that the dress features minimal beading, instead using sequins to shimmer with every step!

We love that Alyssa kept her wedding day look semi-traditional by wearing a gorgeous lace fingertip veil and pearl + crystal hair piece. Her billowing curls were the perfect accent to highlight her petite shoulders in her gown! Her dusty color palette complete with pops of moody accents made every detail extra romantic!

When it came to Thomas and his groomsmen, we kept the look classic + cool – a perfect foil to Alyssa’s modern boho gown. Thomas elected to wear our style 188 navy suit, called Sebastian, which we think is the best balance between timeless yet fashionable. This slimming color allows for everyone to feel confident, while still feeling bright and airy enough for a summertime wedding. We paired the look with classic navy accents and brown shoes. This is a look that Thomas and his guys can look back on, feel confident, and also know they can comfortably dance the night away!

Congratulations to the Edmondsons! Alyssa and Thomas, we cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery to style you both for your big day. We loved getting to know you and are so grateful we get to consider you members of the Dress Gallery family. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter!
